First of all, coming from the USA, we weren't aware that La Defense is well outside the city. We arrived on Easter and everything was closed...even the hotel restaurant. The only thing open for dinner - we were famished after traveling more then 14 hours to get there - was the bar with limited service. The food was awful and very expensive. Not a good way to welcome us to Paris. Also, the location is quite tricky to find. We arrived via the RER ( I called the front desk from the states to ask how to get there) and got lost as the directions given we so awful.
To sum up - the room was very tired - the beds were very uncomfortable - the worst!! WE were expecting amazing Parisian breakfasts, but these were quite unspectacular. I have had much better croissants in many other places...sigh. Other then the concierge who was quite helpful, we will not be going back to that hotel. It was nothing like the Paris I had dreamed of - more like a motel 6 in the middle of a concrete jungle.
