Was lucky enough to visit Paris years ago at the tail end of a business trip - had 2.5 days to cram in all the sights. The Pantheon was the first place we visited - remember looking at the HGH and its sister properties and thinking "If I ever get back here, that's where I'm staying."
Fast forward - after saving for 3 years and planning for nearly a year, we just came back from an amazing vacation. And guess where we spent the 7 night Paris leg of our trip? The HGH - the hotel that I'd had my eye on all those years ago!
It was a wonderful experience. The hotel is well-located - near a major landmark (but one that is quiet in the evenings and mornings.) You're also very close to many metro/RER stations and cafes/restaurants.
The staff was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. They didn't make me feel self-conscious when I tried out my "tres" rusty high school/college French and they spoke excellent English.
Our room (room 15 - Jr. Suite) was large, comfortable and had a very French feel. It looks out on an inner courtyard with access to a little table and chairs (didn't take advantage of that due to the cold, rainy weather but certainly would have if it had been a different time of the year. )
It had a queen size bed, a pull out sofa in a little nook (perfect place to curl up and read), an amazing bathroom (lovely tub, killer shower, towel rack and warm floors) and good wireless service. It was quiet and we slept very well and the room was very clean.
We took advantage of the breakfast twice (one on Christmas day for convenience (wasn't sure what would be open) and again several days later, because our Christmas day experience was so good) - the setting was lovely and the quality of the food was good. The jams were amazing and the filtered coffee (a rarity in Europe) was very good. The wait staff was friendly and efficient.
We used the private car service on our return to CDG (spendier than the RER but a no hassle way to get where you're going.)
HGH was awesome - the best hotel of this trip and of our separate respective previous trips to Europe.
We highly recommend this hotel and would book it again in a heartbeat upon returning to Paris.
Many thanks to the HGH staff for making our time there so wonderful!
