This hotel is wonderful. The building and courtyard are gorgeous, and the interior makes you feel like you stepped into an old world mansion. The study/bar is unique and welcoming with bookshelves of antique books adding to the ambiance. The grand staircase and elegant lobby were beautiful, and our room had a quirky "haunted mansion" feel to it that was so much fun. We stayed in a standard room, and there were portraits on the walls and chandeleirs above the bed. Speaking to another couple, we learned that each room is decorated a little differently, and I'd imagine they are all equally fantastic.
The hotel was expensive, and I would normally not spend so much on a room, but I can definitively say that it was worth the cost. For the few days that we were in Paris we were treated to wonderful service and uniquely amazing accomodations. The hotel is also in close proximity to decent dining, subway entrances, and depending on how ambitious you are, walking distance to all the major sites. Though I wouldn't necessary recommend it, my husband and I were able to take the subway to Notre Dame and walk all the way back to the hotel. Sites along the way during our walk included the Louvre, Museum d'Orsay, Eiffel Tower, and Arc de Triomphe.
This hotel is a true find, and I highly recommend it.
