Historical Traveller Reviews of Intercontinental Le Grand Hotel Paris
All around excellent experiencefrom TravlinMan
The only knock we'd have is with the restaurant - Cafe du la Paix. We only ate there for the breakfast buffet two of the days in town. Its pricey at E31.00, but about what you'd expect for this class of hotel. Be there by the 1030 cutoff or you won't get past the bulldog they have running the door...and if you get there after 930am, as we did on our second visit, be prepared for the serving dishes to stop being refilled by 10am. My wife asked the chef for pancakes and got a plateful of re-heated cakes that were literally as hard as a rock. A complaint to a manager yielded a plate of freshly minted ones, however. The food is excellent when they are trying...and they will try harder if you make a fuss. In some part, the French seem to recognize American's by our expectation for good service and fulfillment of special requests...and based on what you're paying here, not to mention what you're paying for your room, you should get it.
By the way, this seems to be the 5* hotel of choice for Priceline in Paris. We got our rooms for $235/night, well below the rates quoted on travel sites.
Again, highly recommended, and I'll be staying here on my next visit!
Exceptionally nicefrom gjspring
This hotel is has a large number of rooms for Paris - and the layout is a bit odd. The floors are a rough triangular shape. Be careful in keeping track of your room location, because we couldn't find ours after wandering out the first day and had to contact the front desk.... :)
Jet lag, perhaps?
This is one of the nicest places I've stayed in Paris (4th trip).
*A tip...We joined the Intercontinental Ambassadors Club for 150 USD before going and we got 1 night free and a guaranteed upgrade, plus breakfast! Money well spent
As for as the downside of the hotel...
If breakfast is not included I would pass, cost was 31Euros a person and although it was a nice buffet, the the food was nothing great, in fact the eggs and sausages, bacon etc. were always cold and slimy.
The next which may not be a downside for some, but if you use the concierge for dinner reservations be advised that most of the resaurants they choose, even though good, are filled with Americans. we walked into a great little cafe with 9 tables every table was filled with Americans. Again for some this may be fine, I personally go to Europe to get away from my own kind! :)
Le Cafe de la Paix is a must for dinner...Food superior and the service and friendliness of the staff outstanding.
If you are looking for a truly "grand" parisianne experience this is the place to stay!
The location is also excellent if you plan on shopping or sightseeing. Just minutes from fine boutiques and high end department stores: Galleries Lafayette, Au Printemps. and across the street was the Oprea Garnier.
Can't wait for my next visit to Paris, and I have found a new home at the Le Grand Hotel.
fantastic location, servicefrom 1stimePR
Staff at the hotel were friendly. They can get you tickets to the boat ride and any musicals you would like to see. I had left my sunglasses during a check-out procedure. Thought they were lost... however, I was surprised by a mail one day. They had mailed my sunglasses over to me with a nice letter. yOu can not beat this kind of service! Enjoy your trip!
Very comfortable, excellent locationfrom DCTita
Truly Grandfrom amyla
One thing to be aware of is when taking a taxi, be sure to say Le Grand hotel, NOT Intercontinental, as there is another (not quite so nice) Intercontinental a few blocks away.
Great Location - So-so stafffrom A TripAdvisor Member
InterContinental Le Grand, Parisfrom nkirsch1
The location was great. Fifteen min. walk to the Louvre, two blocks to great shopping. With comfortable shoes, you can get anywhere. We walked everywhere, though there is a Metro stop right on the corner. Concierge was helpful in giving us directions and making show reservations. English is spoken by all front staff.
Rooms were well appointed and well kept as you would expect from a First Class hotel. Great beds and linens. Bathrobes, slippers and turn down service.
Bar is very pricey, 15 Euro drinks, but we soon found out Pais is very pricey, from 5 Euro Tea, 4 Euro Cokes, and 30 Euro continental breakfasts.
The 8.30 Euro Roissybus from CDG airport stops right across the street, making it a better deal than the 60 Euro rush hour Taxi.
Would recommend this fully refurbished hotel.
Super luxurious!from cussandotherrants

Top Local Tips for Paris
Traveling b/w countries Following our trip to Paris, we took the high speed train to London. It was fast, convenient and couldn't have been easier...indeed better than flying.
Take the Roissy Bus! From the Hotel entrance, turn right and walk straight. The buses will be parked at the Amex Buildiing, , you can't miss them, its only 8.50 euros per person one way!
