Paris was amazing and though we were only there for 4 days it was not nearly enough time to do much at all. Though for the short time we were there I did get to do almost everything I wanted to do. Saturday November 15 Getting there... Eric had recovery (kinda like practice) Saturday morning so we didn't get on the road until about 12:30pm. We …
Today we decided to relax and just go around Paris. After a quick croissant and coffee at the hotel (the croissants here melt in your mouth), we met up with our friend Sarah and her friend Atif and enjoyed crepes at Cafe Crepe in a non-touristy locale. We strolled the gates of the Opera Theatre and the Music Hall and walked through the Latin …
After a two and a half hour ride on the fast train (Eurostar), we arrived in Paris. During the trip, Sofia slept soundly most of the way while I eavesdropped on a british family of 4 talk to each other in their cute british accent. The difference between London and Paris couldn't be more obvious. London is more like New York. Fast paced, always on …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hyatt Regency Paris Etoile
Surely the Best Hotel View in Paris?
Such a great location and hotel, I was amazed at the view from our room (floor 24) and from panoramic bar (floor 33). Although, with bar drinks averaging £15 EACH, bedroom view was a better bargain!
Would recommed to anyone.
Rooms are adequately French and unless a superior room (10% premium) is booked, I could imagine only a mediocre stay would be had.
Only minor negative points were the price for use of the Leisure Club and the unhelpful breakfast staff.
Otherwise a great hotel to explore a great Capital.
We have stayed in Paris a number of times over the last couple of years as we are getting married there next year.Having seen the impressively tall Concorde Lafayette in a good deal on Expedia, decided to give it a go. My fiance and I were taking his parents, and this was their first trip to Paris.Initial impressions though were not good - having arrived at the hotel by taxi, there was noone available to take our luggage. The reception staff were efficient but not very friendly. Our rooms were a nice size with a good view.Unfortunetly, we were not informed the times for breakfast, so when we arrived at 10.30 we were told the breakfast had finished and none of the other four restaurants/coffee bars in the hotel were open until 11.00 - so no coffee and croissants for us!!In the evening we decided to try out the top floor panoramic bar - however despite being patrons of the hotel we had to queue - the scary bouncer on the door was not helpful at all. In the end we decided to give it a miss.Despite being a four star hotel, we were not impressed by the service levels or the facilities. I would advise anyone considering a trip to Paris to either choose the Meridien Etolie next door (which is great) or a smaller , boutique hotel where your needs are more likely to be met.
A disappointing stay
I came here over the Easter weekend with my daughter for a two day break. We found the hotel did not cater for ' your average person'. The room was mediocre, but we complained to the housekeeping about the constant noise of the extractor fan in the bathroom and lack of pillows. Nothing was done about either. Had we been on the upper floors, ie with money !, I am sure these problems would have been remedied immediately. Acold, unwelcoming, hotel.
Stayed at the Concorde Lafayette in February 2004. We found a good deal on the internet for a Club Lafayette room. I would recommend trying to stay in the Club Lafayette section of the hotel if the price is right for you the hotel website offers specials now and again for these rooms. The rooms are located on the top floors of the hotel. Excellent views over Paris from bedroom, clean and spacious rooms no complaints there. The hotel staff were fine, we had no problems at all. The bar at the top of the hotel has the best views in Paris, however you pay for it. After 9pm they have a set drink price, any drink from a bottle of beer to a cocktail will set you back 25 Euro each !! I would stay in this hotel again.
Stayed here October 2003, excellent staff who all speak excellent English and a beautiful lobby are the first impressions, we arrived just after midday and although no room was ready due to the 3pm check in time advised we were able to leave our bags at the hotel whilst going to explore. Room was well decorated with retro bathroom, perhaps not to all tastes but I loved it! Beautiful view of the Eiffel Tower which simply took our breath away. Only downside was we booked a double and got a twin room, we called the front desk and were informed there weren't any so we pushed the beds together and from then onwards the maids always made the beds with the sheets wrapped tightly round both mattresses to make the best of the situation. The hotel's in a good location, nearby to the sites but not in the busiest area. Under the hotel is a good shopping centre with a nice supermarche for the champagnes and cheeses a cinema and various good shops ranging from le tobac to designer clothes and jewellery. There's also a nice pizza restaurant with a lovely bar that has excellent bar food, particuarly the tuna salad! The bar on the 33rd floor is a must absolutely amazing and although it was 40Euros for two drinks, don't be put off you'll feel like a star once sitting in the ultra hip black leather sofas looking out over one of the coolest cities in the world.
Not worth it
The stay was terrible, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. The service is slow, specially housekeeping and the concierges. The room is small, and the diference between the standard and the deluxe room is a (supposed) renovation. They also don't have any parking.
I checked myself and my girlfriend into the Club La Fayette (Floors 30+) for the weekend over Valentines Day. On entrance to the hotel the reception area looked very impressive and as we had booked a Club La Fayette room we had our own private reception area. As it was Valentines weekend I had phoned up the hotel prior to us arriving and requested a room with a view. Staff over the phone i found very good and where extremely happy to help. On entry into the room, we found a queen size bed a nice marble bathroom and the best view possible. To our left The Arc de Triomphe and straight ahead of us was the Eiffel Tower which at night looked absolutly fantastic. Overall this hotel added to our brilliant weekend and I would reccomend it to anyone and everyone.... although i see from other users have had bad experiences, where you on the floors 30+??? Only qualm was the restaurant within the hotel. Wasnt the best meal but the view from the bar on the 33rd floor made up for it completely. Check there official site for further info, its worth it!
Poor Quality Hotel
Visited Nov, 2003. The hotel location is not bad. Made reservation 5 weeks prior to checking in. Check in time was 3:00PM. Arrive at 4:00PM, trying to check in, the front desk clerk told us the room is not ready, ask us if we can wait 20 minutes for them to clean up a room for us. We waited, waited, waited, 20, 40, 60, 80 minutes later, room is ready. During all those time waiting, not even one apology was offer by the front desk clerks.Room has some very old furniture, 1970?s d?cor. The hotel staff (restaurants/bar to front desk) was so rude, have no since of customer service. I have gone to Europe many times, but was the first time in Paris. Hotel Concorde La Fayette was the worst hotel I stayed in Europe.
We stayed at this hotel in October 2003 for a few nights. We were initially very impressed with the hotel lobby and general location.
However, when we were shown to our room we were really disappointed!
The decor was truely disgusting. The room was in dire need of modernisation. We felt very cheated as the room was nothing like those pictured on the website. It was dismal! This did not spoil our stay in Paris. But we would never use this hotel again!
Magic in Paris
Beautiful up-to-date hotel. Excellent staff. Breathtaking Paris views. The Panoramic Bar is "romance bar none...the drinks are outrageous but the atmosphere calls for champagne anyway and they love to pour the Taittinger's". The location is a bit at the end of the area of interest but walking distance from all Paris sites and the view makes up for a small amount of walking (L'Arc d'Triomphe is 5 minutes away with 10 Brasseries along the way) and helps you work off the Hotel's outstanding foie gras!
