This is a nice, adequate, clean property located in the ultra-modern business district of La Defense. The location is really good, since you can walk to the metro station and be in the heart of Paris in 15 minutes or so. The surrounding glass office towers empty out early and the area around the hotel is like a park with few people. It is a wonderful place to walk and marvel at the buildings and enormous outdoor sculptures and modern artwork that line the long esplanade.There are a few restaurants in the area and the hotel has a rather nice-looking restaurant, but we did not dine there. Indeed we rarely saw anyone dining there. It was more fun to go to Quatre Temps (a huge shopping center five minutes away), the underground shops, or ride into the city (and I was annoyed that we did not receive an upgrade to our room that we expected, so I took my business elsewhere). There were a few minor problems with the room--which is not designed for seniors. The shower is quite dangerous--no place to hold onto and the walls and floor are very slippery. I don't know if it is hotel problem or a common problem in France, but the toilet has a small button to activate the flush and it is very difficult to push. The breakfast is excellent. Someone here mentioned that it was the same every day and that is true--but there is a huge variety to choose from and the kitchen will prepare fresh egg dishes any way you want them. I think the hotel is fine for people who do not want to be in the bustle of downtown Paris, enjoy walking, and riding the Metro (we did not find it crowded or dirty as some people claimed). It is not good for people who prefer to ride in taxis--it is a long ride, the taxi drivers are notoriously rude (we tried it once), and most drivers can't find the hotel and treat La Defense as a foreign country!
