This property was a more than welcome escape from Hotel la Bellchasse!! To compare the two is like comparing apples and oranges...this is a full service luxury historic property that offers you a quiet retreat in the middle of Paris. The location is good, quite a nice area and walking distance from the Champs Elysee and other areas of interest. If you are looking to be in a funkier, more neighborhood-like area that is loaded with restaurants, I would recommend looking a little further. We did not mind taking taxies to and from the areas we wanted to visit, but some people might not want to do that and it did get a little expensive. However, if you are looking for a posh property to treat yourself with, this is a wonderful hotel! The library bar is just exquisite - deep wood paneling and loads of books! The outdoor garden area is also another wonderful area to have a drink - it felt just like being in the countryside. The staff was so helpful and welcoming, we truly appreciated that. The concierge team was always a step ahead of you. I cannot vouch for the food because we did not dine there during our visit, but the restaurant is quite beautiful - very 'classic Paris'. If you are looking for something lively, I might also suggest somewhere else. The room we had was a two story suite with a spiral staircase. This was PLENTY of space for the two of us and it was in perfect condition. All amenities are there; a safe, a mini-bar, hairdryer, etc. If it isn't in the room, they can no doubt bring it to you. Beds were comfortable and the rooms beyond well appointed. We did not have time to investigate the spa, but they do have one. I think this is perfect for a special occasion or a business travel. When you pull up to this property's circular drive, you will know you have 'arrived'!
