“Modern Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

We stayed for free using platinum points from many other stays, so I can't talk about value.

From the train it was a less than 10 minute walk from the Laplace station. On the right there is a small convenience store that sells 1.5 liter bottles of Evian Water for 0.9 Euros one of the few inexpensive things in France, compared to the U.S..

The mall directly across the street was clean and had a Mcdonald's that had Egg McMuffins for about 1.5 Euro, an American way to get eggs in town. They were so slow, it took 15 minutes to get three McMuffins, with one other customer in the restaurant. I say this because getting the buffet for $18 each can get a little pricy everyday. The breakfast buffet had everything including scrambled eggs and the coffee was fine. The front desk was superb at helping us navigate the rail system giving us maps and explaining how to figure out where to go, and how to connect to other lines. Use the electronic boards on each track to know where and when each train is going (see photo). trains come every 4 minutes or so, so if you miss one another is on the way. Each time the board will light up the stops it goes to, it it is not lit, it will not stop there. We learned this the hard way the first day, going by the places where we wanted to stop, but since we had the Paris Visite Pass, 2 people for $40 Euro, it was just a hassle, not financial burden. To get to most anywhere it took between 15-30 minutes, I did not think this was to bad, considering if you wanted to stay in the popular areas, near Eiffel Tower etc., you would pay a bundle for a room. We stayed in room 517 on the 5th (top) floor facing the mall. It was very quiet, and with the fan on, very good for sleeping. We had a private porch, the Internet (for us) was free, and worked well. The bathroom was clean, but the glass shower panel only covered 50% of the length of the shower, meaning we had to run the water at about one third of the pressure, or flood the floor, really annoying. The bed was nice, there were plenty of outlets to plug into my computer. All in all I would hardily endorse the Arcueil if you can live with using the train and it cost everyday. The daytime front desk was exceptional, Emeli was a standout in information, patience and knowledge of the area.

Room Tip: Fifth floor had a porch on the mall side.

The hotel is about 40 - 50 mins from Airport by train (RER B) and another 10 mins walk. The hotel is neat and clean and is relatively new. The staff is ok and they do their job. In terms of hospitality, this property does not match what their counterparts in Asia offer! The breakfast as average. There are a few eating options outside the hotel and a movie hall adjacent to the hotel. The tourist attractions like Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Notre Dam etc etc is not very near and is around 20 - 30 mins by train. If you are looking to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the city and yet reach the city in 20 - 30 mins, then this is not a bad option. But if you want to enjoy the life and warmth of Paris, I would recommend to pay the same and book something in the city! This hotel does not have a Spa or Swimming Pool!

Property appearance from inside is acceptable. Location still not convenient to RER- Walking distance through some unsafe streets at night. Fewer stops for the RER- B line at Lapass?. Parking is offsite in the mall garage- not well explained by staff nor the signs posted in the garage. Unlike some other Eu properties, there are limited selection for breakfast- Water (only tap) is included. Otherwise pay extra for mineral, or regular still water from bottle(cutting corners of something that cost less than 50c per liter retail. Staff tries to help, but with empty talk, unless you reach to senior guys/gals in Mgmt. Otherwise it does not offer the hospitality one comes to expect from traveling around the world and staying with various Marriott properties. I would give it a passing grade only- no more.

Room Tip: Pick a room away from the elevator, and at higher level from the front side- No views to your advant...

The Good: hotel staff speaks english, helpful, facility is adequate for US standards. It is on the train line to and from the airport (8 minute walk from train station...the hotel will say 2 minutes...)

The BAD 30 minute train ride (at least) to anywhere you want to go in Paris.

To stay at this hotel, it really depends on what you are after....(ie. there is a mall, local restaurants, and a grocery store near by)....but they are not the ((MALLS, La Vallee Village, GROCERY STORE, La Grande Epicerie au Bon Marché, or RESTAURANT, L'Astrance).

Good luck!

The staff of this hotel suffer from a total lack of attention to detail. The staff at this hotel could not possibly care less for your business. They are the most apathetic staff I have seen in any country at a hotel and it is a miracle that these people are still employed. Only stairs are available into the entrance so if you have children and/or much luggage, the porter will be happy to stand and watch you lug everything in the automated front door. The handicapped chair lift is broken and is not labelled as such. A leftover soda bottle was not cleaned out of our room and we only found out about it when our 20-month old was drinking someone's backwash. Then the concierge gave us horrible directions to the metro, a three minute walk, which then took us 35 minutes and the aid of people on the street to find. The concierge also told us that you cannot take a baby stroller onto the Metro - wrong! Additionally, the concierge told us that the walking distance between two major landmarks was ten minutes but in reality was about 40. This made walking in Paris with a toddler and a baby a nightmare. I must eat gluten free. By some odd circumstance, the coffee that I was served contained breadcrumbs in the coffee itself. So in one night, two of my family members were exposed to things which can make us ill. No effort was made to provide a separate plate of consumable food meeting my needs whatsoever. When we vacated the hotel the porter did not even bother to assist us with our stroller or our baggage. He literally just stood there and watched. Although the Operations Manager, Ali, made the attempt to put out the fires created by his personnel, one cannot absolve him of responsibility for the performance of the staff. As a Gold Member of Marriott, I am stunned by this hotel. We were so physically destroyed from our ordeal the night before that we lost our trip to Versailles the next morning for which I believe Marriott owes some recompense. That was a one-time chance for my family and was utterly ruined by the circumstances created by the most incompetent hotel staff I have ever experienced. The only positive thing is that the internet actually worked well.

Room Tip: Avoid this place if you actually want to have a pleasant stay. Stay in a hostel or other lower tier...

Courtyard Paris Arcueil is located in the south of Paris, beyond the Périphérique and not far away from Kremlin Bicêtre. The RER station Laplace is nearby. Neighbourhood may be challenging at night.
A shopping mall with numerous cafés and bistros and some restaurants including a Running Shushi Bar (good!) is just across the street. The mall is closed on Sunday except for the 2nd and 3rd floor with their restaurants.
The hotel does not have a garage, but the mall's garage is available for 15€/night (discounts on purchases in the mall). Leaving this gargage during the night is somehow challenging (The exit towards the hotel is not easy to find). Women shouldn't go there on their own!
The rooms are reasonably sized, cleanliness was good. Prices are varying, we paid an average of 160€/room/night.
The anti-noise windows in the room are working well. However, be prepared for a high noise level from the busy streets on each side of the hotel in case you like fresh air and open the window.
The restaurant was terribly understaffed and we had to wait for more than 45 mins. for simple food choices (the food was good!). On top of it, one of our party who was ill the next day and didn't feel like leaving the room was declined room service (during daytime) and was told " we're hardly able to service our clients in the restaurant - how should we bring you some food upstairs?" - Unacceptable!
The rest of the staff was very friendly and helpful though.
