18 months ago I stayed in this hotel and I gave it a 'Ritz Carlton' rating. Sadly, 18 months later, my husband and I returned in hoping to have the same experience. Not the case. The front desk staff tried to charge my husband for an upgraded room (he is lifetime platinum with Marriott). The last time we stayed getting upgraded to a suite was no issue. This time they tried to charge us $250 a night for the upgrade. We noticed the room has had some wear and tear in the last 18 months since we've been there. Also the nightly turndown amenities suffered compared to the nice chocolate truffles we have been left on our prior visit. It's clear the hotel is trying to get by with less, including the breakfast each morning. All of the morning pastries were stale and we ended up going to Angelina around the corner to get fresh items.
The location of this hotel is good. I was disappointed to see such a difference in service levels and quality in only 18 months. I had actually considered planning an executive level event at this hotel because my first experience of been so extraordinary. Next time I will be trying a different Marriott related property in Paris.
