Historical Traveller Reviews of Paris Marriott Champs Elysees Hotel

Terrific Place!

from A TripAdvisor Member
First, what a fabulous location!

We loved this Marriott and will look forward to returning on our next trip! First class rooms - we looked forward to returning every night during our week stay. The in-house restaurant had very good food although I recommend going out - hey, you're in Paris!! The front desk, concierge, housekeeping and restaurant staff were friendly, helpful and attentive.

The negatives are only two-fold. First, the computers were slow and didn't allow me to do anything else other than browse the web, i.e., for those power computer users, you can't ftp and you can't bring up a DOS shell. Second, VERY pricey but you're in Paris and you'll run into high prices no matter where you go. But, geez, 5 euros for a Pepsi????

Very nice Marriott property!

OUTSTANDING PLACE TO STAY

from A TripAdvisor Member
This hotel is great. My wife (who is a travel agent) found this hotel and its staff to be very warm and helpful and attentive to any need we may have had. I just don’t know what some of the people are talking about when they bash this hotel. Marriott should be very proud of the staff they have put together at this hotel, because they are outstanding, polite and professional in the delivery of service. Our room was pristine upon our arrival and every time we left the place in a mess and left to go site seeing. We found it clean as a hospital operating room upon our return. The hotel itself is safe and secure with many security measures in place to keep guest and there belongings safe. This is just an outstanding Marriott property.

During the course of a year, my wife and I travel to many resort and vacation spots all over the world and this year we have found the Paris Marriott Champs Elysees to be the best. Our only negative critique we can managed regarding this hotel is the persistent lady standing watch in the lobby constantly trying to sell us a time share. She just did not understand the word NO. However, I do understand she has a job to do and has to make a living but I just found her to be very irritating.

Furthermore, call me crazy but as an American, I found the French people to be warm and very, very patient with my 15 word French arsenal. When lost on the metro, I could always count on any French person at hand for helpful instructions on how to get to my destination. Try that in D.C., Chicago or New York and you won’t have the same luck every time. The people I found to be rude and cold and indifferent to the perils of traveling in a country not your own were in some cases other tourist. Like most other people here in America I’ve long lived and believed the un-true myth about the French people being rude and down right in-hospitable to Americans. Don’t believe the hype about the French people they are nothing like what they are portrayed in the US. I think most people have heard these stupid notions about the French being rude and ugly towards and Americans and considered it fashionable to continue the lip service to this very un-fair portrayal. I can only advise go see and experience for your self; like I did.

As Advertised

from jfaul98
Stayed here all of last week. Best part was didn't cost a dime using incentive points. I can;t find one reason why someone wouldn;t like this place. Location was perfect right on Champs, 1/2 block to metro stop, 4 blocks to Arc and plenty of eating and bars around. Of course I was staying in a US500/night room for free so maybe i am biased but if you require an american style room with excellant service this is your place, breakfast was included in my deal which was buffet americn style with fruits and eggs, bacons, cheeses, etc which cost 16 euro perperson if you are paying. I personlly would go elsewhere and eat lighter if i wasnt paying but we ate huge breakfast and les for lunch. Exchange rate is a killer as we all know so i encourage everyone to shop very carefully for your lunches and dinners. its very difficult to get a bad meal in paris so why spend a fortune. The restarants, cafes, etc all have menus in front so take a look t the prices and meals and move on..we usually looked at 10 places for dinner before settling plus we het to exp[lore. Best dinners we had were under 20 euros..worst dinner we had was 40 euros per person. Also, get your wine in pichet (pitcher) bottles will eat you live and very few people could tell the difference what comes from a bottle and what comes from a pitcher. Buy a metro pass and don;t step one foot in a cab and get a museum pass and enjoy. Dont be loud and ;earn the basics , Bon Jour, Merci, say vu play(please) and you are ready to go wnad you wont get any attitude and dont be a complainer...if you order and it isnt exactly what you wanted well eat or drink it and enjoy unless if you order chicken and they bring you fish. any questions send me email to jfaul@bellsouth.net. FYI, air france bus is the way to go..gets you there just as fast as taxi and round trip is 18 euros or 24 usd.

Good Service and Great location

from stinger32
I stayed at this property over a weekend between November 5-7th, 2004. I have to say I was impressed by the level of service at the property and the location.

First of all I arrived on an overnight from Toronto and got to the hotel about 10:30am Friday morning. No problem checking in early as I had requested and they even upgraded me to a Champs-Elysees view. I was able to get some rest before some of my meeting started later that day. This was very much appreciated.

The hotel overall was quite busy in the lobby area but I expected this due to it's location. The location is the real benefit of the hotel. You are right in the middle of all the action as far as shopping, restaurants and bars located on the Champs and area. No need for transit or taxis if you are here for a quick weekend trip.

The room was quite nice, regular Marriott room up to North American standard with the exception of being a little small. However the balcony overlooking the Champs was well worth the smaller room.

I found the hotel service to be on par with other Marriott's, not up to Four Seasons standards but you are not paying for it as well. Rate that was charged was $350EUR which I would not personally pay but corporate travel has it's benefits.

Bar and restaurant service was good.

Concierge was very helpful in arranging transportation back to the airport and ensuring they were there on time.

Overall: You can't beat the location.

A Real Mixed Bag

from A TripAdvisor Member
The positives: fabulous location, excellent door and bell staff, decent size rooms with full amenities. Night concierge Jaime was wonderful.

The negatives: The worst check-in service I have ever received anywhere in the world - including the rudest person I have ever encountered. Minimum services compared to other European Marriotts - no club floor and the Business Center had miserably slow computer connections which were in a constant state of repair.

Great Choice for Business or Leisure

from marionsey
I stayed here in October and was fortunate enough to get a very discounted travel agent rate, but I would recommend this to any of my clients without hesitation. The front desk let us check into our room at 10 AM, which was VERY nice and generally unheard of for a front desk staff in France! The spotless room was more than ample size for Paris, and the bathroom was full of amenities typical of a Marriott. It was very well located, with a corner drugstore, the metro, and the Virgin Records MegaStore (open til midnight!) just a few steps away. My sister's back went out the first night of our trip and she ended up in bed all week at the Marriott, but they kept her very comfortable and room service was attentive to her needs. We enjoyed the pizzeria across the street for carry out one night too. Though it is really more geared toward the business traveler, I found its location on the Champs-Elysees very convenient for tourists. Please feel free to email me with any questions.

Beautiful Hotel - cold, unhelpful staff

from A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel is beautiful and the location is excellent. The service fell far short of what I would have expected at these rates. When we arrived we were told that our reservation was not correct and our original room was not available for our third night.

We were givin a handicap access room. However, all we were told was that it was a room with only a shower, but it was a larger room. This was deceptive. The room was large, but the bathroom was very uncomfortable, the shower, sink, and toilet were all designed for handicap access.

We informed the front desk that we were on our honeymoon, but received no acknowldgement, advice on activities, or anything else.

The concierge was merely adequate and again not what I would expect in this price range. Answers were direct, correct, but short on advice. 5 extra minutes on their part could have saved us an hour for each day we were in Paris - from negotiating the Metro, finding a decent restaurant, or catching a train.

We don't speak French, but we tried. I stayed at an American owned hotel specifically for this reason - what they say about Paris is obviously true.

I am only compelled to mention this because we finished our Honeymoon 3 weeks later at the Marriott Grand Flora in Rome. We received a room upgrade, champagne, and the hotel recommened the most wonderful and attentive restaurants of our entire trip.

I am a loyal Marriott customer and frequently use Marriott for business travel in the US. This hotel, however, made us feel like an unwanted foriegner, not guest. I'll be sending a note to Marriott as well.

I Love This Place

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Marriott on the Champs Elysees was beautiful. We stayed for 8 nights. Service was great and we felt we were treated as VIP's. The room was luxurious but small (it is Paris). If you want an iron or ice you have to call for it. It isn't like an American Hotel where you have everything already in the room. From the outside it wasnt much but as you walk in all you can say is, "I would have never expected it to be like this inside." There is also a door man at all hours to open the door and greet you, "Bon Jour." If you plan using the Metro for transportation or want to shop at the ritzy stores, theyre just a short walk away. There is also a Monoprix (similar to a mini Walmart) close by, to the left of the hotel. As you step outside the hotel the Arc de triomphe is to your right and the Eiffel Tower is not to far. The funny thing was you see other tourist wanting to see the inside as they pass by. One thing for sure Marriott did not let us down and we will return to this hotel in the future.

Service was terrible

from yangbness1
We stayed for 5 nights at the Marriott on the Champs Elysses in late May. Location is great for tourists. Very safe location at all hours. Easy to walk to sights, catch a taxi or take the Metro. Service was so slow - from bags/luggage to room service. We had 1 message that they kept delivering to us each day we were there - they had no idea when it came in. Concierge bungled it big time by giving us bum directions - perhaps he had a momentary lapse in the French to English translation in his head - but it was a biggie. We also requested dinner reservations at 1 of 2 restaurants in town - they never confirmed it or told us which one they booked. Walls are thin - you could hear all the construction going on next door. They tried to mask a smoking room as non-smoking by spraying air freshener. Be forewarned that most rooms aren't available until late in the afternoon so if you arrive on a redeye, don't expect to check-in anytime soon. The breakfast buffet is overrated as it gets so crowded and they are understaffed in there.

It's clean, safe, modern and in a great location. But go there if you can depend on yourself.

Great Location for First Timers

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed in 3 different 4 star hotels in 3 different areas of Paris over a 6 day period to get a feel of the areas.

If you are a first time tourist, this is a good locatoin since the Champs Elysees is a happeing area and things stay open late. You don't get a neighborhood feel like you would in other quieter areas which i think is a negative for the marriot, but you can't have it both ways.

Its very touristy, the staff are generally friendly. no ice machine - you have to request it.

we had a small room with small bathroom and not a great view. concierge was okay, didn't know that the Louvre was closed on Tuesday (LOST POINTS ON THAT ONE SINCE ITS A WELL KNOWN FACT!!!)

Overall, i'd stay there again due to its upscale atmosphere and proximity.

Top Local Tips for Paris

Discovery Disneyland Paris Discovering this wonderful place with family, it's magic, it seems enter in a magic world.You ca'n understand if you never been there

Taxi are hard to find Don't count on cabs they were hard to find and on occasiion refused to take us if the destination wasn't far enough according to the driver. Get a good subway map earlier in the trip and use the subways to get around more. We also found out at the end of the trip we could have used water taxis.

Little known but delightful museum Check out the Jaquemart Andre Museum on the right bank. A gorgeous townhouse filled with a fabulous art collection, plus a nice gift shop and lovely restaurant.
