Great location on the Champs-Elysees. Staff is helpful and services are provided with adequate time. Breakfast is very standard with limited choices. Standard rooms are small and deluxe rooms recommended.

Selected for convenient location to start and end of Paris Marathon (not because I'm from California USA). Not a thing to complain about during 4-night stay and would definitely recommend to a friend.

I visited the lobby and took a cup of coffee. The lobby is cosy and the service was very professional. The staff was very helpful but wifi service was very slow. It took 10 to 15 mins to download a few emails.
