Prior to a medical conference at Paris Marriott Rive Gauche Hotel & Conference Center, My wife and I had a 3-night stay at Sofitel Paris La Défense between May 5-8, 2011. I was too busy back home but finally find time to write this positive review to share our experience.
Locations and Traffic Information:
Sofitel Paris La Défense is located near the line 1 metro station Esplanade at outskirts of La Défense on the border of Courbevoie and Puteaux. Even though it is in the zone 3 of Metro system of Paris, you may still try zone 1-2 day pass in and out of central Paris, which we did without trouble. Between Esplanade and Grand arche, a 12-minute above-ground free-from-car-traffic walk, you can enjoy magnificent skyline with fresh clean air. Near the Grande Arche, there is the largest shopping mall of Paris, Les Quatre Temps. You can take SNCF train at La Défense Grande Arche train station and reach Versailles Rive Droite station in 24 minutes.
Hotel and guest room:
The interior decoration and design are contemporary. The room is excellent and equipped with hdmi connection for your personal entertainment or notebook connection. Bathtub and shower area are separated, which is a must for a 5-star hotel.
The small yet delicate buffet breakfast with daily changing menu is pleasant to start each day.
There is complimentary bottled water. High speed internet, a rare complimentary service for 5-star hotel, is FREE. You are greeted each day by pastry and cocktail near the front desk, which make your stay.
I booked this hotel via Otel.com (look for Big Sale in Special Offers) with excellent pricing. My wife and I would definitively recommend Sofitel La Defense as top choice of 5-star hotels in Paris.
