We headed over to Paris for an overnight visit as were having dinner with some friends who live in the 15th. We wanted something a bit special with secure parking.
We were upgraded to a Junior Suite which was fantastic, gorgeous, stunning! I love interior design and was actually quite speechless for once. I was skipping around the room at one point!
As many have already pointed out the location was a 15 minute stroll from the Eiffel Tower which was perfect for us as we were only there overnight and weren’t on some crazy tourist trip. Perfect location if you drive over as you quite literally turn off the motorway into town, 10 mins in and you’re there. A very quiet affluent area.
It was probably the best night’s (hotel) sleep I’ve had in a long time in the biggest bed I’ve ever slept in although it was the attention to detail in the décor that quite astounded me.
If I’m going to be really picky I would have expected the concierge to be a bit quicker of the mark in coming down the steps to meet us. We were out of the car and taking our overnight bag in before anyone acknowledged we’d arrived (with the sound of our car’s exhaust you’d hear us a mile away).
We also had lunch in the Library bar however the service was quite slow. They brought us coffee when we’d ordered champagne and we waited 30 mins for our croque monsieur (I’d drunk my champagne by the time the food came).
Booked through Mr and Mrs Smith we had 2 x complimentary cocktails vouchers which was a nice touch.
Don’t ever like to go back to the same place twice but this would be worth it for a special romantic stay.
