Hotel Le Royal Rive Gauche
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
This hotel has a nice decor and warm ambience. Rooms feature plasma TVs and mini bars. There are lots of places to eat in the area and it's close to Luxembourg Gardens.
I did not choose this hotel - it was selected as part of a group tour. I used points to upgrade my room to a suite and despite SEVERAL conversations with the male front desk staff, they could not seem to get it together to give me the correct room when I arrived (even after waiting several hours beyond the check-in time). I was assured my bags would be moved to the correct room when my daughter and I returned from dinner and the ballet only to be told at 10:30 p.m. that no one even knew that I was supposed to have a different room (!!!). Breakfast was mediocre, the room service we ordered was mediocre and the guest rooms were very basic. The restaurant recommended by the concierge was also mediocre and it felt like there was some joint agreement b/c SO MANY Marriott guests were there at the same time - and it was about a 20-25 minute walk even though we were assured it would only be about 10- 15 minutes away (not a big deal except that it was a very warm night and we would have cabbed if we had known the actual distance) The best part about this hotel is that it is in a quiet neighborhood and the rooms are slightly larger than your typical Paris hotel room - the rates are lower than other hotels because of the location.
We stayed at this hotel as part of our Go Ahead tour to London and Paris, we found this hotel was more typical of an American Marriott or Hilton with American-sized room & furnishings, breakfast was excellent (with many selections and the made-to-order omelettes were incredible), has a very good restaurant attached which I highly recommend for dinner. The neighborhood wasn't ideal , we found few restaurant options nearby (wish we had tried the connected restaurant since the first day!) & it was a considerable distance from the sites we wanted to visit, but we used the Metro to get everywhere we needed to go (bought the Carne metro which gives you about 10 tickets for a cost of around $10).
What made the stay great was the outstanding staff, starting with Tonia at the front desk, the concierge staff, executive lounge staff, and everyone at the hotel. We had a problem with construction above us (on the roof) and the Guest Relations Manager, Ms. Valerie Bartos, got involved and we were moved promptly. The hotel location is close to major attractions via taxi or tube.
The location of the Paris Marriott Rive Gauche was satisfactory--near the metro, the catacombs and Montparnasse, the beds were comfortable, and we had air conditioning. BUT, the hall carpeting was dirty, the room keys were hit or miss working in the elevators, the ceiling tiles fell down in the hall outside our room, and the overall feel was dated and run down. Hard to believe this is supposedly a four star hotel.
I stayed 5 nights for a business trip at the Rive Gauche. Assuming this is a 4 Star Hotel I am simply disappointed and cannot recommend this Hotel. First I received a key for a room that was already occupied. Very embarrassing for the poeple in the room as well as myself. What concerns me the most, this is a Security Issue of the highest level and questions the room and reservation system at Rive Gauche!! Giving another room, now to the back, I encounted a toilet room (looked more like a locker room) where part of the wall was coming off. Trying to get a cup of tea ended up in grabing a chipped and dirty cup. As every Hotel undergoes renovation once in a while (and which is acceptable) I cannot understand why leftover of the daily work are not taken away on a daily basis. A big pile of plastic, cardboard and other material rested for the whole 5 days next to my room. As this might be relevant, as it is an escape route in case of fire or emergency, the Management of the Marriott Rive Gauche is facing another Security topic. To proof evidence I will add some pics and can only hope that Management is taking action quickly!
