Historical Traveler Reviews Warwick Champs Elysees Hotel Paris
Good hotel but in an expensive area - try to include breakfast
The warwick is one block from Champs Elysees area and is approximately three blocks from the Arc de Triumph. Since it is located in the major tourist area, all of the eateries around that area is extremely expensive. I booked this hotel through Expedia which did not include breakfast. For the folks who decide to go with this hotel, try to have Expedia or the hotel to include the breakfast. If you order breakfast separately instead of including it as part of the package, the price is 28 euros per person and it is a buffet breakfast. This may seem high, but trust me, in that area, you can easily pay that much and still have nothing to eat. All of the restaurants/eateries charge a very high price.
Also, if you have never been to Paris and/or this hotel, I strongly advise you NOT to take the Air France Shuttle bus. I made the mistake of taking the Air France Shuttle Bus and was misguided first by the Air France Information Desk and then by the bus driver, who both told me to get off at the wrong station. I have to walk for approximately 35 minutes dragging my luggage to look for this hotel.
Unless you know exactly where the hotel is located, you will be much better off by taking the Paris Shuttle or Airport Connection Shuttle, both are at 25 euros per person.
Overall, this is a solid good hotel, the air-conditioning (heating - I was there during Winter) worked fine, the hot water was hot (no problem), the room faced inside with no view but was very quiet, the bathroom was good size and very clean. The only thing that you must remember is not to use the telephone even for 800 toll free numbers, they charge for all calls, including toll free, calling cards, anything and everything. Overall, this hotel is pretty good.
Great hotel for a short break in Paris. Ideal location for sightseeing on foot or catching the metro. Rooms are a decent size, clean and very comfortable. The bathrooms are well equipped and spacious. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The reception and lobby area has a dated and non-descript airport lounge feel to it, but unless you are planning to spend your trip hanging around the lobby.....this shouldn't be a problem. Recommended hotel!
Location, location, location
The Warwick is 1/2 block off the Champs Elysees, one block from the George V metro station. The location is excellent and only 2 blocks from the Arc de Triomphe. There are lots of nice places to eat in the maze of streets north of the Champs (like the Italian place across the street from the Warwick -- they mix up food orders, but the food is excellent). The staff at the Warwick is six-stars -- they hold the door for you, they call for tickets, they fix your glasses (really), and they run around accommodating any (nearly) need. They try very hard to get you into a room if you arrive early in the morning after a transatlantic flight. The rooms are decent sized, with large bathrooms. There are no views of anything (a little garden). The price is high, but, this is Paris, and the prices are representative of the quality here. The bar is totally overpriced (glass of coke is 7 euros) and offers somewhat indifferent service. Bob and Tom.
Great place! Loved it!!
I just returned from a long weekend in Paris. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Warwick. It was very clean and comfortable. I was traveling by myself and felt very safe here. The location is right off the Champs-Elysees and very close to numerous metro stops. The staff was friendly and helpful. I speak French but I heard them speaking English to other customers. The room was recently redecorated and the decor is beautiful. Also, the room had personal A/C which is important in Paris during the summer. I like to stay at nice places and this was satisfactory on all levels. I would stay here again during my next trip to Paris.
Solid Hotel..not spectacular.
Just returned from a stay at the Warick (May 21-25). The hotel is solid but not spectacular. Our room was on the first floor and for the most part was clean and comfortable. The room furniture is up to date. The staff is very friendly and helpful, especially if you speak limited French (my vocabulary is about 300 words). The hotel lobby and check in area are pretty plain, although the pictures shown on the internet show it to be much nicer than it is. The restaurants are very expensive for any meal, so we didn't dine at the Warick. One issue to consider is the location of the hotel (just a half a block off the Champs Elysees). The street is very conjested and busy all the time. The sidewalks are busy with thick foot traffic day and night. It has the Las Vegas strip personna. If you are looking for a quieter stay, this might not be for you. All in all a good hotel. I probably would not stay there again because I would be looking for a quieter place.
Good Business Hotel
Spent 3 nights on business. Excellent location - right on the Champs Elysees by Place Charles de Gaulle Etoile. Very friendly staff with excellent knowledge of English - my French is in a sad state!
Very pretty interior. The room was very comfortable and nicely decorated. Nice bathroom. However the room temperature was freezing - the heating could have been a little stiffer. But I was hardly in the room at all, and so didn't bother me too much. Ate out, so can't say how the food was.
Don't know if it's the right thing for a leisure trip, but for business, I would have no problems staying here again.
Not a bad choice!
I just came back from my one week vacation in Paris yesterday (May 17, 2004). This Hotel is located very near the Metro stop "Georgy V" (about 2 to 3 min walking). Hotel is clean, air conditioner was not working well when we checked in. I made a phone call, they sent a technician to fix it right away (filter problem). Since then, no more problem, you can set the temperature you like. The shower is strong enough. Sheets and towels are clean and changed everyday. Front desk people are nice. Room service people are nice too. If you like to sleep on a King size bed, ask for two twins (binded together)---since their King size bed looks like a queen size bed to me. Breakfast is expensive ($28) in the hotel, however, McDonald is right at the corner (one minute, $3.50 Euro for big breakfast/brunch). Anyway, this hotel is not a bad choice if you pay discount price.
This was my trip to Paris. I was there from 10-17-03 thru 10-26-03. I chose this hotel after looking at over 150 hotels. The one review was not so great. But I decided to take a chance. I loved my room. It had a king bed, a balcony overlooking the Eiffel tower and the bathroom was fabulous. Not only did everything work in the room but, the service from all employees was excellent. The hotel was right off the main strip, close to the metro and close to all the major sites. I will definitly be going back and staying there again.
Felt like everything was broken
My stay has been so-so. Granted, it's quiet and safe, and clean. That said, it has felt like everything is broken, and the reception desk hasn't been very helpful in that regard. First, I'm in Paris in the hottest recorded summer ever, so I hunted for an air-conditioned room.
But apparently, the hotel's system can't handle the strain, so it can only get the room to warm, and not cool. Initially I was told, "ok, we'll send someone up" but no one ever came. When I went back down an hour later, I was told all the rooms in the hotel are like this, that all of europe is malequipped like this (which isn't true, the a/c in nice and in geneva worked fine), and that it will be fixed by thursday (I'll be gone then). I did get them to switch me to a slightly cooler (but still warm) room. Second, when I went to call the front desk about the temperature (I was sweating in the first room, with the A/C going full-blast), the phone didn't work. They fixed it that night, but it's still sketchy for a 4 star hotel. Third, I ordered internet service through the television (a nifty device if it would work), for a day, supposedly through noon the next day. The keyboard didn't work properly, the program lost long emails i had written several times, and the service disconnected completely on me overnight. The next morning it was barely working, with frequent disconnects. The answer I got from the front desk was, "yes we know, yes I'll call the manager, yes we're working to fix it" but no answer as to whether I'm going to be charged for the malfunctioning service. I'm sure this would be a great hotel if things were working, but I suppose I'd have been more tolerant if the front desk (who were friendly, mind you) had been more helpful (i.e.
send someone up if you say you will) or accomodating (i.e. be more willing to show me another room, get fans for the guests, something).
Instead, they explained, "we're undergoing renovations." That's not my problem. I didn't bargain for these troubles. As it is, I don't think I'd stay here again.

... couple approched me, they were on the same tour. Bernard was late and so we chatted awhile. They are from Sydney and are here on a 3 week tour of france. Bernard came bounding up to us, apologetic as he had some issue with his bike, from what I could make out. He asked us if we wanted to go to the cafe across the street get some cafe etc. The three of us had eaten and we were ready to start. However, I quickly realized Bernard probably needed coffee as he looked ...
Traveling to Paris- Wednesday 2nd July Another travel day was ahead of us. We said goodbye to London and made our way to the Central Bus Station. It's fair to say we didn't realise how far away the station was…. I have never walked so far so quickly carrying so much weight. We were all sweating by the time we checked in and loaded our packs…and more importantly…on an empty stomach! A short trip later we had our passports checked before ...
... unique about the Louvre. To start with, the building itself is an undeniable work of art having its architectural roots firmly planted in the late 17th century. Or maybe it's the fact that, even with priceless pieces of art and sculpture at every turn, you just don't see that many security guards hovering around. I mean, they are there, for sure, but they don't make their presence ...
Frogs legs, snails and the Eiffel tower...what more can I say?! We were very lucky that we had the extra time in Paris to share with our new friends after the tour.
We started with a stroll down the river to the Eiffel Tower....which took 2.5 hours! It was due to the numerous shops along the way. Then it was time for dinner, so we found a great Indian / Asian Restaurant in which we feasted. The next day we gorged on ...
... their birthdays one day after the other and one was celebrating today. How magical is that, to celebrate your birthday in Paris? To top it off she had seen Richie Mccaw, but typical kiwi, not wanting to be a nuisance, didn't approach him for a photo with him. What a dream - birthday in Paris, and Richie too!! So not only were we in Avignon at the time NZ played in the world Rugby League, but we were in Paris when the All Blacks were to play ...
