Le Meridien Etoile
- What's Included
it's a big hotel and you feel it, particularly during that new year eve weekend : busy lifts, a very busy restaurant at breakfast, a long walk from the lift to my room.i attended their new year eve party, the food was tasty.Few elements that i didn't like: the amount of the guarantee, 150eur/night (why so much when i booked a prepaid rate , inclusive of breakfast, and there is no minibar in the room ?), no welcome bottle of water (why not? even ibis does it)
Stayed for 5 nights. Arrived at 8:30am and greeted by a very friendly representative. Was told we could check in if a room was available. At 8:30 in the morning, after an all night flight, this was fabulous news. Checked in, nice, small room with everything you need. The hotel also offered a free breakfast that was one of the best hotel buffet breakfasts I have ever seen. Only downside was the shower was a little messy- water got all over the floor. We enjoyed our stay.
Not too much in the immediate neighborhood as far as bistros and cafes. Well-located otherwise. Very large and somewhat impersonal although I did have several positive interactions with staff. Breakfast was OK. Not fabulous. Everything clean and well kept. I would probably look elsewhere next time although I don't have one specific item I would complain about. I just didn't love the property.
Stayed here for a break between Christmas and new year. Very easy to get to being opposite the Etoile bus hub. The hotel was very nice, welcoming lobby, nice facilities, good rooms. Also very easy to get around Paris using the metro system. The main disappointment was the jazz bar which was supposedly (confirmed by the concierge) open each evening however for the three nights we were there was no music or anything. This was quite a disappointment and I wish there had been more communication that this was not an option. Overall a very good base for sightseeing Paris, but over promised on the facilities of the hotel.
The Le Meridian hotel works out great for me, although the location can be a bit far from the center of Paris. The Le Direct Bus Porte Maillot bus from CDG airport stops across the street from Le Meridian and is 30 euro RT. Very handy for getting to and from airport with lots of luggage. I am using Starwood or Marriott points for my Paris stay and there are a lot of hotel choices, but the Le Meridian is only Cat 5 and 12,000 points per night. This makes the most economical choice and if you book 5 nights, the fifth night is free ! The Westin Vendome is in a better location, but is 20,000 points per night. As a Platinum member, I requested an upgraded room prior to check in and even though I didnâ€™t get it, I did get a room on the Club Floor on the 8th floor. There are total of 9 floors and the rooms ending in 09, 10, and 49-53 are slightly bigger because of the bump out in the building. The Club Lounge is a new addition since I was here last year. The breakfast is from 6:30-10:30 am and Wine Cheese from 7-9 pm. The Club Lounge is open til 10:30 pm and has drinks, water, soda, coffee, tea all day. The breakfast has hot food (eggs, bacon), cold selections (cereal, meat, cheese, bread, pastries, salad, croissant, fruit, yogurt). I think the Platinum Amenity breakfast buffet in the Latitude restaurant was far better and for 10 euros, I could have eaten there. The lobby also has a new kiosk pop up for snacks, yogurt, pastries, etc. The room is very small, but this is all of Paris. King bed, bathroom with tub/shower combo, sink with no counter space and separate toilet. Large closet, mini refrigerator (which I have them empty) and I requested a hot pot for making tea. The bed is comfortable and nice robe/slippers provided. Small desk with outlets, chair and small table. My room was renovated and nice, with a peek a boo view of Eiffel Tower. The Platinum members get free daily bottles of water and free Wifi. It seems to be mainly a business traveler and large group hotel (cruise ship patrons) with 1000 rooms. I opted for the Make a Green Choice, which you forgo daily cleaning for 500 daily points, except they have to clean every 3rd day. The one complaint I have is the TV has little to none non-news English channels and I was watching the endless loop on the SPG channel. The bell staff was friendly and helpful when I was looking for a box and bubble wrap to ship my goods. They assisted me in taking my box to the Poste, which is about a block away. Thereâ€™s also an office supply store, where you can buy boxes and bubble wrap. Mario, the duty manager was friendly and helpful too. Across from Le Meridian, is Palais des Congres, where you find shopping, grocery store, Paul, Angeline, Marks Spencer, Starbucks,and movie theater, so it is very handy location. During the summer, the Hermes sale is here. The metro station, Porte Maillot is at the end of the street and it is Line 1, which is one of the main lines bisecting Paris and you can get anywhere very easily. There are plenty of restaurants nearby and in all of Paris ! There is a Fitness Center. Will be returning to Le Meridien.
