We stayed at the hotel in May for nine nights and I can’t tell you how disappointed we were. This is not our first stay at the hotel so we were totally shocked. While the new décor is lovely to look at, the lack of basic necessities in the room makes for a difficult stay. There are no shelves in the bathroom, I had to stack items on the floor. We only had one night table, there was no room for a second one on my husband’s side. When opening the closet, I had to move my night table to accommodate the door opening and the only shelving we had to put anything away was so high I couldn’t reach it. Needless to say, I was forced to live out of my suitcase. The room was so small there was practically no room for the suitcases and we kept tripping over them. All the Paris charm that was present before the renovation has been replaced by modern design, which is fine, but this is a hotel room where basic needs must be met. You don’t meet them anymore and that is such a shame. One final note, your breakfast buffet is wonderful. There is a vast array of tasty food and beverages.
