Marriott Paris

We need to know if anyone has stayed at the Marriott Paris Champs Elysees. We have always liked Marriott hotels in North America so we thought this might be a good place to stay in Paris. The reviews were good on Expedia. Any thoughts??? Thanks for all the help everyone has given us. We truly appreciate it. Ptm

While the Marriott is perfectly fine, personally, you would have to PAY ME to stay there. The hotel is a nice business-type Marriott hotel, but the location on the Champs is just awful, IMO. The Champs is very commercial, lots of Benetton's, McDonalds, and other chain stores, it's not really the elegant boulevard it once was. I also find the restaurants pretty average and extremely touristy.

My choice for a Marriott brand hotel, and I almost hate to give this away, would be the Renaissance Vendome, which is just a lovely little modern boutique hotel. It is just behind Le Meurice hotel, so it in a great location near the Lourve and the Tuileries and quite near the very elegant Place Vendome full of expensive shops and the Ritz Hotel. Some good shops and very good restaurants are in the neighbourhood. The rooms are very sleek and modern (as opposed to the flowery chinz you find in many Paris hotels, or the very bland Marriott-style of the Marriott Champs), they tend to be on the small side, but are a good use of space. Flat screen TVs, DVD players, CD players, rooms have wireless capability. They have an indoor pool, sauna and steam room which is unusual for a Paris hotel. They have an excellent French-Asian fusion restaurant, Pinxo, which I would recco even if you don't stay here.

My wife and I stayed there in 2004. The hotel is very nice and being a platinum member breakfast was included weekdays. It is located next to a metro stop.
