Le Meridien Etoile
- What's Included
I got to say that there are things that i love and some things that i don't. I love the fact that upon check in they will give you a number where you can send them a whatsapp text and they are like you own personal concierge. You can request anything you like, and i would say they are really good in delivering your request.This was what introduced to me;" For your convenience we have introduced Let’s Chat, an initiative which allows you to reach us 24/7 prior, during and after your stay via WhatsApp & iMessage (+33 6 77 88 18 35) or via BBM (568E70AF) with any request you may have. Text a request for a dinner reservation, a wake-up call, extra towels or anything else you need! "what i didn't like was, the rooms didn't have any coffee or tea making facilities. You need to go to the vending machine which is located near the lifts to actually buy those off the vending machine. This includes snacks. It made the hotel feels less of a hotel and more like a hostel or backpackers place.The lounge also lacks the feel of a lounge, would appreciate if more varieties for the cocktails session and breakfast could be added.Being a Platinum guest, i think it is appropriate for the hotel to allow us to give some flexibility for the members to choose to have breakfast at the Restaurant or at the Lounge. Which i think the hotel is too rigid ..
A very comfortable hotel that offers really great breakfast but beware the cost of drink at the bar. A small. 0.2 beer costs 8 Euro in the hotel bar so go down the street for a meal and a drink. There is plenty of choice, try the Congres restaurant where you can get "The Menu" for just 37 Euros each. That option will buy you an aperitif, starter, main course, cheese course, desert, coffee and a bottle of wine between two. Enjoy!
We have stayed at this hotel three times for the past 5 years and we always had a great experience .From the speedy and welcoming checking in at the front desk, always helpful concierges and the wonderful housekeeping. Each time our stay was wonderfull. Our room was small but always very clean and the housekeeping lady was very nice.The location is very good and you are at a walking distance to the Arc de Triomphe and we also walked to the Eiffel Tower and stopped at the Lady Diane memorial on our way back to the hotel.My only suggestion is that they have someone checking the coffee machine on the floor landing because each time for the past 3 years it was out of order! ( 3 years on the row?) why not having a coffee set in your room like in the USA?The sign that was posted on the coffee machine was poorly hand written and attached to the coffee machine with a piece of cello tape. It was a sloppy job and the sign was crooked! Attention to detail and perfection for this kind of establishment is a must.I will definitively recommend this hotel .
Overall very good, nicely furnished and spacious room (by Paris standards I mean, but still a good size even by American standards), clean and functional bathroom, and a proper empty mini-fridge you can actually use for your own stuff (water bottles etc). If you want to pay typical mini-bar prices there are well stocked vending machines on each floor, so you're not missing out on that at all.Wifi wasn't perfect in my particular room, would sometimes cut out depending on where you are in the room but was not much of a problem and hopefully was just something with that room since walking through other areas of the hotel lobby/restauarant etc had strong signal.The room didn't have any coffee maker, instead there is an automatic espresso/tea/hot chocolate machine in the hallway (costs money, though my room came with a free voucher). The one thing that was free on that machine was hot water though, so if you bring your own tea bags or instant coffee powder you'll be fine.No easy way to access the HDMI input on the TV though for projecting a laptop, it's inset into the wall a bit and although am sure you could reach around I wasn't going to mess with it. But interestingly there is a speaker in the bathroom that pipes in the TV sound, which is nice if you want to keep up with the news on TV from the toilet. And it also has the standard power outlets on top of the desk conveniently accessible.The location is fine, in that it's close to Porte Maillot metro and there are some restaurants/shops etc around. You can walk to the Arc de Triumph and Champs Elysees but it's a bit of a hike with not much interesting along the way. Best thing close by is actually the bar on top of the Hyatt Regency across the street (I prefer staying at the Le Meridien though) it has an incredible view which is rare in Paris since it's one of the few skyscrapers (of course drinks are ridiculously expensive, but the view is worth it).The breakfast buffet was included in my rate, and very comprehensive. All the basics plus a made-to-order omelette bar, and even a section with international alternatives like noodles, rice, miso etc. Everything tasted reasonably good, although since the pancakes are buffet some of them had slightly dried out parts (overall they were fine considering it's a buffet). Can be busy in the earlier morning, but near closing time of 10:30 it's quieter and lots of empty seats. Has a sort of garden courtyard outside with seating as well if it's warm.Service was good, minor on check-out had a new person who took a bit of time to figure things out with removing the breakfast charges from the bill (since it was included in my rate) but she was very nice and can't fault her for being new (also was a busy time of day at the hotel).
One of those large corporate hotels (it's within a few yards of the Palais du Congres) that provides all you need for a short stay in an unmemorable way. It has apparently been refurbished recently, and the decor throughout is a symphony of shades of grey. Rooms are quite small though well-equipped (ours had just a shower, no bath, plus a separate toilet) and the beds large and comfortable.As others have noted, the breakfast room, though quite large, was simply not big enough to accommodate all the guests, resulting in long queues every morning. What's more, you have to hand in a voucher to be allowed into the room for breakfast, which hardly seems in keeping at this price level. If breakfast is not included in your rate, the cost is definitely not worth the 29 Euros charge. Tables were small and pushed together, with hardly any space to manoeuvre between them - annoying for both you and your fellow diners when you have to ask them to move to let you through to the buffet. The hotel is well-located near a metro station and just a 10-minute walk from the Arc De Triomphe, with shops across the street in the Palais Du Congres and lots of small restaurants in the neighbourhood.We didn't have the opportunity to visit, but the hotel also has a well-regarded jazz club, which featured a tribute to Joe Cocker during our stay.
