The Intercontinental changed to the Westin on Nov. 1 and seems to be in flux. Indifferent staff and many leftover items from Intercontinental days. Lots of business meetings going on. Our deluxe room was big but the furniture and walls showed signs of longtime wear. Location is great if you like classic, monumental Paris - across from the Tuileries Gardens, just down from Place Vendome and a short walk to the Louvre. Angelina, home of some of the best hot coco in the world, is a few steps away. Starwood needs to go to work on this property to bring it up to speed. In the meantime, a drop in rates is in order and a total revamp of the rip-off room service menu ($30 for petite dejeuner - coffee, rolls and juice!). Until Westin puts some energy and efficiency into this property, you can find much more atmospheric lodgings at less stratospheric prices.
