“Disappointing rooms”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

I was very pleased with the front desk staff, who were very friendly and helpful with providing maps and directions. There is also a bar / cafe that has good food and drinks.

Aside from this, the hotel is uninspiring. In particular, the room I stayed in was very dated and in need of a refurbishment. You usually get better from a Renaissance brand hotel.

Stayed October 2012, traveled on business

5 minutes walk to the metro and train line accessible to shopping malls. Surrounding buildings were mostly office buildings and towers. rooms were artistic and classy. Breakfast service was horrible and slow. I had to request for staff to replenish the plates and food after a good 20 minutes. I am not particular about food but it was just not edible.. :X

One thing i dislike is, though i displayed 'Do not disturb' signage, housekeeping staff proceeds to enter my room.

Although la defense is a little outside of town, if you don't mind hopping on the metro- every thing is accessible to it. All the main sites are 10 a15 min. away so just get an all day or 2 day metro pass to get the best value and you can see it all. There is also a wonderful Christmas market and mall right next to the hotel.
The staff was friendly and very helpful in planning my week long itinerary. If you have Marriott points or Gold or Platinum status this a great place to cash them in. They were also able to upgrade me to a suite for no addition cost. The breakfast in the lounge wasn't great but you can stop in and get cappuccino and food and drinks in the evening. Great lounge staff! I would stay here again without hesitation!

We stayed here in 2011 and loved it from the minute we checked in. The room was okay size with a very good firm bed.. The location is surprisingly quite good. The staff could not be more helpful. Nothing was too small or inconvenient. We were given directions and ideas of what we can do for the day. How to get where and what. The Metro station is just down the road, there is also a very large shopping mall nearby, just after the exhibition center. My kids love the Macdonalds that was closeby. The members lounge is open till late with fruits and snacks all free. I love the turn down service. We will definitely stay here again.

Just spent our first three days and two nights in France and the people at The Renaissance Paris Hotel, La Defense could not have been more fabulous. Great location (a short 5 minute walk to the Metro/Train line), lovely rooms, and some of the best European customer service we have ever experienced. We arrive at 8 am in the morning fully expecting that the room would not be ready but were pleasantly surprised when we were given keys to the exact room I booked. It was followed by good directions and explanations of the benefits and amenities available. Has a great concierge lounge accessible during the day and until 10 pm at night that has beverages and snacks available. When we needed additional items, they were delivered promptly to our room and the turn down service for the bed and the sofa bed ... a welcome surprise. The breakfast downstairs was just what we needed the next morning and suitable for all members traveling including our son. They arranged for our car to the train station when our stay required us to move on with no delay. I would definitely stay there again on return to the area. Thank you especially to Laura, the front desk clerk who was so kind and patient with us on several occasions. The staff at this hotel make the visit go from nice to special!

Room Tip: Ask for something up high and on the side of the mall for the view of the beautiful buildings and &q...

I have been in this hotel for 4 nights from 22 to 26/10. The rooms are very convenient if you are staying in the executive floors : big room (thebiggest in Paris i gues) and you can enjoy a free 24h of special lounge with multi snacks, fruits and varieties of hot and cold drinks .
The Hotel is only 5 minutes walk from the metro ,RER and the biggest Paris mall (les 4 temps).
By RER you are only 1 station to Les Champs Elysees.
Be careful, if you are fedup of the mall life and don't need to take metro to Paris ,let me tell you there is NOTHING around the hotel to do.
