“Great hotel if you are looking to stay in La Defense”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

La Defense is outside of Paris, a very modern looking business district. The hotels at La Defense cater to business travelers, and the Hilton would be my first choice among them. Our room was small but clean, and the bathroom was nice. Dinner at the restaurant is over-priced, as you would expect. However if your package includes the breakfast buffet, that is a pleasure, with a wide selection of hot and cold choices, bread and croissants fresh from the oven, assortment of good cheeses, fresh fruit, etc.

The hotel is directly connected to a shopping mall, and the entrance to the metro is right outside, which will take you directly into the center of Paris.

A great hotel in a great area, but the differentiating factor is the Customer Service. Tremendous restaurant staff and front desk staff really add to the experience at this hotel. This is a hard hotel to find, as signage from the street is non-existent, but once you get there, it's excellent! Great value

Room Tip: call ahead to find out how to get here and where to park!

Never been to La Defence before - but what a spot. Great for Metro line 1, 10 minutes to Arc de Triomphe. This hotel was SO quiet, no traffic noise at all - would highly reccomend to the light sleepers amongst you. The staff were very helpful when we requested a change of room due to a really strong cigarrette smell and moved us right away.

We used this hotel for a 3 night stay, whilst visiting Paris. We regularly use Hilton hotels and this has to be one of those that we would not return to. The hotel is in the business area of Paris and as expected is used business people. However we have used Hilton business hotels before and none have lacked atmosphere as much as this one. Something was missing but we are not sure what it is ??

We booked a double double room and as we are Gold Hilton members we would have thought we would have be given an upgrade but we weren't - this was a first for us. The hotel was very clean, the room was very basic just beds tables etc, no extras. We had to keep ringing for extra items such a milk, coffee etc. there were limited bath amenities and no bath robes, slippers etc. Our room looked into the shopping mall which made the room very dark.

The reception check in did not explain hotels details we had to keep asking, this gave us the impression everything was an effort for them. We used the bar and resturant on one of the evenings and food was ok. We also used room service and this was ok.

We would not return to this hotel.

Dear JHart10,

Thank you for taking the time to post a review on Trip Advisor. We were sorry to learn that you were disappointed with your recent stay at the hotel despite your positive appreciation of our overall service.

Indeed atmosphere is really important for a hotel and it would appear that we failed to meet your expectations, for which I sincerely apologise.

The hotel is located in the business district of Paris connected to a mall that has anything you would ever need. Also the metro and RER are there too. You can get to it all without going outside and with Oct. being the raining season this is very nice. The rooms were very quite. The concierge was great and most helpful. Breakfast was great. Rooms are very spacious I would stay their again.

Room Tip: rooms are all great face the inside I like high floors normally less noise.

We've enjoyed our stay here at the Hilton La Defense, but have encountered some issues--including a very strange scheduling of a conference on the fifth floor above our room very, very late at night (with lots of noise above us, including a loudspeaker, chairs dragging, applause); it started at 9 p.m. Saturday night and ended at 12 midnight. Very hard to sleep during such loud noises. We have also had to call housekeeping several times for items not restocked like coffee and tea, cream, etc. On the other hand, the room is spacious and comfortable; we have found the CNIT and Metro/RER access very helpful. One employee at the Reception desk really helped us alot when we arrived last week (Alexei)--he worked and worked to get the room ready and arranged free internet access in our upgraded room. As others have noted, however, the directional signage for taxi drivers needs much improvement--it cost us at least 15 Euro extra because our driver missed the turn the first time.

Dear 448StephanieM,

Thank you for taking the time to post a review on Trip Advisor. I am pleased to read that you enjoyed your overall stay with us but would like to apologise for the fact that you have not yet received a response to the issues you raised concerning the night of Saturday.

Indeed, there was an exceptional evening meeting organised that night that lasted until midnight. Our banquet team did their best to make it the calmest as possible but it seems that was not sufficient. Let me explain my sincere regret for the disturbance this caused you.

Dear 448StephanieM, despite the above, I do look forward to welcoming you back to our hotel very soon.

Sincerely yours,
