Hotel Lutecia
 
Has anyone stayed at the Lutecia in Paris recently? We are looking for comments on what you thought and any suggestions for us while staying there. Do they provide 240V to 120V adaptors? How is the staff? Do most speek English? How are the rooms? Do they provide shampoo, conditioner, etc.? How well does the AC work in the room? Are the bathrooms as you would find in a good American Hotel? Are the restaurants good at the hotel? <BR> Thanks, <BR> Enri <BR>

Report from friends staying there last month was that all was in order and anything you might expect from a hotel was available and prime. Enjoy the frozen delights across the street and try out the rest. "Our Ancestors, the Gauls" (my wife speaks the French in the family, but this is the English trans.) -- it is just down the street.

Craig--think you're confusing the Hotel Lutece on the Ile St Louis with the Hotel Lutetia.

Hi Enri, <BR>If you mean the Hotel Lutetia in the 6th arrondissement, I have not stayed there but my friends have. It is a large 273 room hotel, landmark building. The staff speaks English. The restaurant is supposed to be pretty good, but it is pricey especially for breakfast, and you'll do better to explore the cafes and pastry shops and restaurants in the neighborhood.While they were there, one of them went out each morning and brought back coffee and pastries for breakfast. My friends are not available for me to ask right now about the hairdryers and adapters and other amenities. You might want to call the hotel at <BR>011 1 49 54 46 46--a call of a minute or two should only cost a couple of dollars. Their fax number is 011 1 49 54 46 00. If you call, call when it's daytime there so you will talk to someone on the day staff, not a lonely night clerk. Also the Lutetia is part of the Concord hotel chain, and I believe that chain has a toll-free number in the US, and a website. <BR>As for the adapter, I would bring my own even if they say they have some--they won't necessarily have many and perhaps one will not be available for you when you need it. <BR>You will need one if your appliance(s) is not dual voltage. Regardless of the voltage of your appliances, you will also need a plug adapter. <BR> <BR>good luck

Martha, thanks. You are correct. This site would make for an interesting, multi-lingual spell check program.

My family and I stayed at the Hotel Lutetia on the Blvd Raspail this past June. They have hair dryers (in the desk in the bedroom!). The shampoo, soap, bubble bath, etc. is wonderful Annick Goutal Eau D'Hadrian. I think they had several kinds of outlets (we were also in the UK and I forget which hotel had what), but I brought my own converter/plug adaptor. There are enough staff who speak English that it isn't a problem. Everyone was very friendly and very helpful--no complaints as far as the service goes--it did take a little while to get into our rooms, but it was the high tourist season. One doorman was particularly helpful in flagging down taxis willing to take on four passengers. The rooms were comparable to what you would have in a good American hotel. The bathrooms were also, just a little different--water from the shower seemed to go everywhere, but there was a drain in the floor, so no problem! The air conditioner worked just fine. We only ate breakfast at the hotel (which was included in our rate), but I understand that the main restaurant is very nice. I have never eaten at a bad restaurant in Paris. The public rooms are also very nice. If you have any other questions, feel free to e-mail me.
