Le Meridien Etoile
- What's Included
we stayed at this hotel as part of a costco travel package for a stay in Paris. We stayed 4 nights. usually during our travels we choose Marriott Product and if we want to splurge we go with Ritz Carlton product. However, in light of our first visit to France we picked this hotel based on reviews from trip advisor, We flew on a red eye flight so we arrived in Paris at 730am, headed to hotel and when we arrived to our surprise they were able to accommodate our request for an early check in without any additional fees. This is certainly a plus specially because we are traveling with kids. Upon arrival we were assigned a room on the 5th floor. another plus is that the room was located away from the elevators. The room itself was very small for a family of 3, when they brought the roll away bed, the room got even smaller. It seemed that the space the hotel allocates to accommodate 2 adults and a teenager would be consider too small in the USA. I get it, space is expensive in France but so is in NYC as well. The tub had a very weird design, in which you have to climb into the tub, there are no doors to the tub and as you can imagine the marble floor was wet everytime anyone of us used the shower. Water pressure was just barely enough at times. No view out of the only window the room had which is fine but the space in the room was very minimal. We only had a small desk with a small chair and some kind of chair on the side that had no back support or bottom support at all. Very uncomfortable to sit on the bed all the time. Every floor has an automated coffee machine, in the room there are 2 coupons that get replenish whenever housekeeping feels like it, we used the coupons one day but the coffee was just ok, so we didnt care when the coupons for free coffee ran out. I think the best option at the hotel was the breakfast that came with our package. We used it 3 out of 4 times, well packed buffet with an assortment of fruit, omelette station, hot buffet, breads and bakeries and a well stock assortment of fresh squeeze juices. We really enjoyed the breakfast, the staff was some what inconsistent, One day the waiter would be very attentive, other days, we had to find someone to help us get cutlery. The african american gentleman at the Omelette station seem to be bother every time somebody asks for an omelette, perhaps he should be assigned to another station. He was not engaging at all. I found it surprising that the hotel had an asian station for breakfast, I didnt try it but I thought it was very thoughtful. Quality of food was better than I expected. Front desk staff provided the wrong information. One day I called hotel operator to find out if 800 calls carry additional fees, I was told no. I made the call to my car service for a airport transfer and the call lasted about a minute and suddenly upon check out I was billed for it. I think the hotel either needs to have staff that can understand how to explain the do's and do not of making calls to avoid misunderstandings. I end up paying for a call because I received the wrong information. If it was a language barrier, is simple fix. Put labels in the rooms next to the phone that explain charges and what calls can be made at no charge. This is the first time we stay in a meridian hotel, which seems to be a part of the Marriott Merger.Anyone with a back problem, hip problem needs to be aware that the tubs at this hotel are difficult to get in and out of. Is almost a balancing act. From what I hear, this is not the only hotel that has the same problem. I had never seen a tub that high in a hotel in the USA. the bed was somewhat uncomfortable in comparison to most hotels we stayed. Pillows had no support, housekeeping did a poor job at dusting. We noticed a lot of dust on vents and around windows. Carpet in room had a lot of stains. I suppose this is a busy location but room care and deep cleaning is something that cannot be overlooked by the management. the phones in the room had very poor volume controls even when set at the highest volume level. Toilet seat was located way too close to wall, so it is uncomfortable to sit as the paper toilet hit mu knee every time. Water pressure on toilet was mediocre. Very poorly ergonomics and poor design for a bathroom. Overall Staff all around the hotel is not very engaging towards guests. There is a mall across the street but nothing special, we did like that the train station was nearby and we felt it was close to transportation. Had i paid a few more euro, I could have gotten closer to the Eiffel tower area but this was fine as we enjoyed walking around Paris.
A dream come true. I've always dreamed of going to Paris. It was amazing from beginning to end. We stayed at the Le'Meridien Etoile. The staff was courteous, professional and knowledgeable. The rooms were always kept clean. The breakfast buffet was to die for. It's delicious and the even make u eggs to order. Thank you Le'Meridien for making our stay memorableð
Beautiful contemporary venue with a friendly atmosphere. Most of the front desk and concierge are bilingual. Some speak both french, english and some speak spanish and german. I would say, they are quite accommodating. The hotel is environmentally friendly, so as you travel down a hall, the lights come on automatically and turn off as well. The rooms are stylish with all you need for a comfortable stay. There is a mall and a high end grocery store across the street. The Metro station is less than 50 feet from the door , right before the Champs Elysees. Turn left on the C-E and go to the Arc de Triumph and turn right to La Defense. Great weekend outdoor markets toward LaDefense which are not to be missed. The hotel has great patisseries and restaurants all around. Especially for those who love Charcuteries for visitors on the go.
The hotel was really well situated, with a valet parking, which is a good point if like me, you like to just drop your car and uses taxis when in a large city. Personnel really took care of the car.Personnel was great, from the first minute at the registration, they immediately gave attention to my daughter and her toys, which was greatly appreciated (sorry I don't recall the name of the asian lady, but she did a wonderful job at the checkin)I liked the lobby, the club floor (where you can have snacks during the day), was a nice place to give calls and prepare the next meeting.The breakfast was nice, but standard. I would definetly visit it again.
Good hotel. Good location. Great front office staff. Amazing and v helpful concierge staff. Good duty managers who ensure your stay is as comfy it can be. However, very very poor housekeeping unfortunately.
