Unlike Sofitel, Pullman recognises Le Club status. That's about the only thing you can say that Pulman has going for it over its Accor cousin.
I quite liked the Spa Suite I stayed in. It's certainly nice, modern and spacious. Oversized desk is good, facing into a wall, bad. The bed is good though standard. The bathroom is very spacious, however probably doesn't define luxury at this point, which another way of saying it is dated.
The executive lounge is merely good as well, if not somewhat lackluster. Perhaps it's because I'm very partial to the Sofitel lounge, but an enclosed room on ground floor with no view whatsoever is a bummer. The breakast is fine if continental is all you're after. You will have to look elsewhere for a hot foods - and I don't mean the on-site resturant, which is decided average. On a positive note, happy hour is great ....
As far as service goes, walking through the door I was dismayed by the tiny checkin desk which services both Pullman and Mercure. However, to their credit they were very accommodating and efficient on all my dealings.
Overall then, I think Pullman is fine - it's good, though certainly not 5-star in my opinion. It's worth a look if you can score a special rate and you have status. Otherwise, there are better options in this price bracket elsewhere.
