          Very expensive hotel

          The room was beautiful with a view of the Eiffel Tower. But I found the staff to be not very friendly.

          A memorable stay!


          We stayed at the Crillon for three nights in order to celebrate my husband's birthday in June. The service was excellent in every aspect. Our room was large and tastefully decorated (even though gold and mauve is not to my liking) and everything worked well. The marble bathroom was very impressive, better than the Dorchester (which was the best I had seen till the Crillon). The consierge was especially helpful with restaurants and whatever we asked. The Ambassadeur restaurant serves a wonderful buffet breakfast. We loved the friendly staff, always smiling politely. The location is excellent: all the designer shops are close by, the stunning Budha bar behind the hotel has great sushi, and the famous beauty house of Carita where they give wonderful facials is a minute away. If you can afford it, its a great classy place to stay in Paris.

          Not every once in a lifetime experience is worth it?


          I had occasion to stay in the Hotel Du Crillon as part of a ballooning

          trip ... Buddy Bombard Balloon adventures meets up at the Crillon

          before beginning their adventure in the Loire Valley, which is

          terrific! I love Paris and France.

          Walking into the Crillon is impressive, and to note the history there

          is very nice. I suppose the Crillon can support themselves based on

          people from all over the world being able to go there and spend the

          kind of money for a room there. It was nice, comfortable, and old

          ... but in a charming way.

          The room service was adequate, and the food superb for the most

          part, it was a wonderful experience, but not without its warts.

          For a once in a lifetime experience, it was fantastic to see this

          great hotel, where Presidents have stayed, and history has been

          made. It is in a fantastic location, you can walk to much of old

          Paris ... I walked to the Eiffel Tower, and the Arc De Triumph,

          and Notre Dame Cathedral, fantastic, and espcially at night

          there is no city of place more beautiful.

          The rooms were fantastic, but my weird bathroom with the odd

          French fixtures leaked and the bathroom flooded.

          The Internet did not work, so I had to go to the telegraph office

          to use their very slow computer. All in all it was wonderful and

          worth it for a special treat, and I guess the hotel can expect that

          there are enough guests with money like that to spend that they

          really do not have to work that hard to maintain their image

          and rating, but with just a little bit more work, or maybe on a

          rare good day the Crillon would be a dream, and it is pretty

          close to that on a bad day.

          I am so happy to have had the chance to stay at the Crillon

          that even the weird elevator with numbers you have no idea

          where you are is just an adventure.

          Hotel de Crillon top of league


          We stayed with our 2 children from 1-4 January 2005 to celebrate my wife's birthday. The hotel surpassed our expectations in every respect. The staff are simply the best we have encountered in any hotel anywhere in the world. There was none of the Parisian disdain which we had expected. The building itself is magnificent and beautifully maintained. The main restaurant, and the smaller L'Obelisque restaurant, are worth visting too. The rates, although high, were not as high as we were quoted by some other first class hotels in Paris.

          Wow, Beautiful!!! Loved it!!


          Excellent, hotel. The staff made everything so smooth, everyone is very helpful, always smiling, The suites are huge, very well apponited. Rooms are quiet. The bathrooms are elegant and large. Very well worth the stay. Location is excellent too. I definitly recommend this hotel as a deluxe property in all ways. Can't wait to go back!!!

          Unmitigated Splendour


          Eurostar brought us here from London in February for three nights.Reception was a personalised service with a charming young lady taking the details and then showing us around.Room 205 was an immaculate 18th century chamber with beautiful fabrics and classey antique furniture,quite spacious with a fine bathroom.Champagne and chocolates were delivered as part of the deal! The Ambassadeur restaurant was expensive but magnificent in every way-marble,crystal chandeliers,attentive service and food of the gods. This hotel is so well situated in the very centre of Paris,an ideal stylish base for a city with such style!

          5 Star Service


          We stayed at the Crillon for 5 days in Dec 2003. I have not much complaints. The lobby area and the dining room is beautiful. The staff were wonderful as well. The concierge booked us restaurants on short notice every night. They were very responsive and accomodating. I feel like they even went out of their way to get things that were not readily available. Room service food was excellent. The breakfast buffet was great (I miss those pastries!). The room we stayed in was not glitzy nor glamorous, but spacious and comfortable. I relaxed in the marble tub with the bath salt every night, and I loved the maid service 2x a day. The only snotty people at the hotel are some of the guests, not the staff. But then again, those guests might not be snotty; they just look it because they're wearing Chanel and Armani.

          Crillon is in the prime location next to the Louvre. We walked from the museum because there were no taxis. Eiffle tower is about 3 minutes drive, and so is the Notre-Dame. We took the subway down the block to the Versailles, and Champs-Elysee is also just a block away. Buddah Bar is right next door and so are all the designer shops. I would recommend this hotel if you can handle the $ and you like personalized service/attention. (Warning: In Paris, do not get into a cab without a meter. They'll charge you 10 times over the regular cab fare. We didn't pay him anything because he's obviously a fraud, but it was a very unpleasant experience.)

          Room 105


          Room 105 is a real treat. It has hand painted walls and along with Room 107 was part of the original chapel of the de Crillon family.

          Service and great and all the marble and glitz you could imagine.

          Skip it.


          I had heard amazing things about the Crillon over the years, and really looked forward to staying there myself. However, after spending two nights at the Crillon early this year on a week-long business trip, I checked out and checked myself into the Meurice (which was wonderful).

          For the prices the Crillon charges, I was expecting no-holds-barred luxury. What I got was a shabby room with cigarette burns on the bedspread. The shower was broken for two days; the management suggested that I "use the shower head in the bathtub," rather than switch me to a different room. After a Fed-Ex package from my office was delivered to another guest's room, I had had enough.

          The bottom line: Not for business travelers, unless you don't mind missing important faxes or phone messages. And its not for those on vacation, unless you like paying five star prices for one star service.

          What I expected


          Since we started our 12 day trip on a budget hotel and ended the trip at the Crillon, we were quite happy with the room. We had a JR suite at this Hotel since the Presidential wasn't available. There were fresh roses in the room and the maid service was 2xs a day. The staff is very typical FRENCH, a bit snooty, but that's what we expected. This is a more formal hotel and not many young people. The location was excellent for the Champs.



          the hotel is currently under renovation, as is the US embassy next door, and it looks like the building on the other side is also. Otherwise a very nice small hotel, with a very helpful and pleasant staff

          ... visit Disneyland and Disney studios in one day. We had read reviews that suggested this might be possible and as we would only be doing the more adult rides we thought we would give it a go. We were really lucky with the queuing times and managed to get everything done that we wanted to do. It was a long day but totally worth it.

          Today we are just having a chill out on the campsite before our hefty drive home tomorrow.

          See you all soon.

          Well last day in Paris, and it was a early one. We were up early to get to the Louvre before it open at 9am. So a quick breakie at the hotel, and we hit the trains again. We arrive at one of the entrances to the Louvre and use the priority line as it was part of the Paris Pass to get fast entry. So 9am comes, gates home and it is a quick dash to see the Mona Lisa. I heard it was small, and they were right, so after soaking it in for a few minutes, we then ...

          ... the promise of afternoon tea, that we headed out.

          We caught the Metro to Concorde and then on to Madeleine. There were signs everywhere saying Madeleine so I had to get some photos. We looked at lots of patisseries but didn't buy anything and eventually we arrived at Galeries Lafayette - which is a massive department store.

          On the roof of the store you can sit on a chair and look at the view. It's pretty cool. You can see the Opera House from the front ...
