Paris, it is a beautiful city, but I don't think it deserves the hype it gets. The first thing I guess everyone tells you is that if you don't speak french, forget trying to get help. This wasn't always the case but it did happen a lot. I'm not really sure why they think they need to be so arrogant perhaps it's just a culture thing. We did at least …
Today was an action packed day! Unfortunately, Lindsey's sister wasn’t feeling well so she stayed at the hotel to rest up. The rest of us headed up to Sacre Couer, a beautiful church whose building was completely funded by donations of the French people, thankful for their protection from the Prussians. We again met up with the Hamiltons and …
Today we attempted to get up earlier than we have been getting up and make our way toward Versaille. When we got to the train station though, it said the chateau would be closed! So many different attractions have been opening and closing at unusual times because of the strikes that have been going on in France. Not wanting to get there with …
Yesterday was the last day in Paris for the Hamilton-Cordano clan. We met up with everyone at the Musee D'Orsay and while Paul’s Mom and uncle, and Lindsey’s mom and sister went in, the rest of us walked around Paris looking for posters and Harley Davidson shirts. Unsuccessful in both endeavors, we again met up with the entire group for …
Ah, Paris. Pareeeee, oh, Pareeeeee. Speed train got us here in a mind-blowing hour and 20 minutes. Amazing. We were wandering around in Paris earlier than we usually get moving in Brussels.
I got to use my French right away when someone tried to ask me a question, to which I responded, "Je ne parlays pas Francaise." Yeah. That's the one …

Not very clean, nice breakfast.
This review is the subjective opinion of a TravelPod member and not of TravelPod.com.
The staff was incredibly helpful. We booked through a third-party website, which sent the incorrect information to the hotel. They ended up honoring what we actually thought we were booking, which gave us a family room. The room was incredibly spacious with a queen bed and a full size sofa bed. Roomy and comfortable.

Historical Traveler Reviews Crowne Plaza Paris Republique
My family of 4 stayed at this hotel in July,2004 for five nights. After reading several reviews, we decided to book an Executive Room (not much of a price difference from the regular rooms).
From the other reviews I have read, the rooms at this hotel must all be different. We really like the room we had. It was very clean, very spacious - we had five large suitcases, lots of floor space to put all suitcases. The room had a small closet, small refrigerator, very nice large bathroom, space for ironing board, desk with chair and another small table with two chairs.
We really liked this hotel. Location was OK. We had dinner at the restaurant several times - a bit pricey though. Lots of other restaurants within walking distance - including McDonalds, etc.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. When we requested extra pillows, towels, etc. it was delivered within 3-5 minutes.
We were disappointed with Holiday Inn Paris Republique based on the great ratings it received. The hotel had absolutely NO charm (except the staircase) and was marginally clean. The breakfast was expensive $26/person and the dishes were dirty both times we ate there (upon arrival and the following day for breakfast). We were glad we booked the hotel for only one night. The only redeeming aspects of our stay were that the hotel is close to a metro stop, our courtyard room was relatively quiet, and the friendly hotel staff allowed us to check in early the day we arrived.
Satyed here for three nights a week ago. The location is perfect. The metro is a two minute walk and all the lines you'll ever need are there. The only complaint would be the decor of the rooms- not too classy. The bedspread was straight out of the 80's and the carpet didn't look new. Aside from that, I highly recommend the place. After all, you are wasting your time on a trip if all you came to do was sleep in your room. I must recommend the breakfast. A tad pricey (22 Euros) but I thought well worth it. Pancakes, baguettes, omelettes, fruit, bacon, eggs, the whole works. I was so full I never needed lunch. In the long run, it pays for itself. The concierge is helpful. He gave me a great dinner suggestion where I had the best dinner on my entire European trip. Overall great hotel where the location was a real boon.
Not your 'cookie cutter' Holiday Inn!
The Holiday Inn-Paris Republique offers a complete antithesis for those who might tend to view the chain as a series of cookie-cutter franchise operations. Housed in a stately, historic building facing the bustling Place de la Republique in up-and-coming 11th Arrondissement, it is clearly a Crowne Plaza class property. Guest rooms are relatively large, by Paris standards. Many have balconies and there is large courtyard on the interior. Rooms and bathrooms feature a high level of finish. The brasserie noses into the sidewalk with its large, glass front that puts guests into the midst of Paris street life at a busy crossroads where five metro lines meet.Like other common areas of the hotel, the hotel's restaurant is well-appointed. In addition to full menu, there is a complete breakfast buffet priced at 22 Euros for those who like a large meal to begin their days.Definitely book in advance or you may be faced with the eye-popping 488-Euro rack rate for a standard room, if you can get in at all. Anything under 200 Euros would be well worth it and we've even lucked out and gotten in for less than 100 Euros/night (but those opportunities are very few and far between). If you are able to book it with Priority Club points, it's a tremendous value. (We also noted that PC Gold status produced a fruit plate in our room upon check-in.)This hotel is a great choice for people who want a higher-end hotel experience as part of their visit to the City of Lights. We give the Holiday Inn - Paris Republique high grades for customer service, level of finish and overall quality of the property.
Spacious executive room - great location
We stayed at this hotel using our Priority Club points and were upgraded to an Executive Room complete with a complimentary fruit basket and massive bathroom in late August 2003. The hotel is located on a busy street but we had a courtyard room that was very quiet. Our defining experience was at the bar late one night and we were exhausted from walking all day and wanted a huge glass of orange juice. The bartender at the Holiday Inn poured two pint sized glassed of Orange Juice and charged us a paltry 9Euros. Usually at restaurants a glass of juice is a tiny 4 ounce glass or small bottle for the same price or more. The HUGE glass was absolute heaven and made our stay. The hotel was a little further out of the way than our previous hotel in the Marais district but with the metro just outside the door it was easy to access any part of Paris in 20 minutes metro ride.
Paris so much to see so little time!
We were in Paris in December 2003 with our three children. This hotel had everything we needed: clean, breakfast buffet, helpful staff, close to public transportation, walking distance to train station and a number of restaurants in the area.
Great location, pleasant stay
We stayed here in early December, 2003 and chose it because of a low prepaid internet rate and because of an excellent location. We were surprised by the high quality of what we got. We were upgraded to an executive room at no extra charge because of our Holiday Inn Priority Card status. This only meant a slightly larger room with a sofa, but our overall stay was very pleasant with a very helpful staff. The location is terrific with lots of very good restaurants nearby, and a metro station right in front of the hotel. We would stay here again, even if the rate were a bit higher than the deal we got.
Nice Hotel but paid more then was reserved for
The hotel was nicely appointed. Truly in a location of old Paris. Easy transportation connections.
However, we were overcharged 176 euros. We were told that the hotel would make good on the overcharge, which they did not,even though I have emailed to them several times regarding this problem. This has been going on for a year and still not return of the overcharge nor an explanation.
We just spent 4 days at this hotel and I can highly recommend it. We've been to Paris many times and it's the first time we've stayed in the Place de la Republique area. The hotel is beautiful, it looks like a chateaux (see website) with a lovely inner courtyard with chairs, tables, plants, etc. There are 5 (yes 5) Metro lines right outside the hotel door, it's minutes to everywhere.We were upgraded to an Executive Room which was very nice (the standard rooms are a little smaller, not to say the Exec. rooms are huge tho, they are not, standard rooms have less ammenities). Our room faced the inner courtyard and we never heard one noise at all from anyplace, altho I would imagine facing the Plaza could be a bit noisy at times. There were French windows in our room (2) and a window in the bathroom as well. We had a queen size bed, also a couch, as well as the other furniture. The bathroom was very nicely tiled and modern, with a separate W/C. Nice seelction of shampoos, etc. as well as terry cloth robes and slippers. Our rate, 150 Euros, included full buffet breakfast. I'd recommend checking into that if you are interested in the hotel because it is a good deal. All sorts of breakfast food including eggs cooked to order, bacon, sausages, fruits, breads, pastries, rolls, pancakes, juices, cooked tomatos as well as a "cold" buffet of meats, cheese, and salad.The staff were extremely nice and went out of their way to be sure you were accommodated. It's about a 5-10 min. ride from Gare de Nord Station (Eurostar) and was about 6 Euros cab fare. (Both cab drivers we had, coming and going to station were the rudest we ever saw in Paris - didn't even say Hello and we speak French (my husband is French). They both acted like they wanted to kill us - literally, driving like maniacs and practically throwing our luggage into the cars with very snarly looks on their faces. Oh Well -- the rest of the time there was fine!The Place de la Republique has many cafes surrounding it as well so there are a lot what you want). The dining room had a non-smoking section and there are a lot of non-smoking rooms in the hotel as well. The cafe/bar, fronting the Place de la Republique did have a lot of cigerette smoke hanging about(we did not eat there as a result).Big advantage to this hotel I think is simply being able to book via Holiday Inn's website for 800 number. No deposit was required either which is good in case you do have a change of plans. All in all it was a very comfortable place to stay. I am sure we would have enjoyed it had we just gotten the standard room, the building is simply beautiful.
Good news - bad news
Executive suites wonderful, access to transportation great!
Last stay was in regular room and A/C not working well, NOISY from a band all night on weekend nights.
