How to Get There
Location of this Hotel is located suburb of Paris. Five kilo to Paris Center by Metro or Cab. Around the Hotel many choice of good Restaurant and shopping. Actually, 30 min to and from CDG Airport. Room are clean standard American bed. Breakfast is ok but not many choice.
So the folks here couldn't have been more helpful. They were friendly, helpful and willing to work with us to keep the same room when we extended by a night. So, we arrived in Paris about noon, and were at the hotel by 1:30 PM. No problem, we were given a comfy twin bedded room immediately, on the eighth (and top) floor. As our downline plans changed, we booked our own extension on the website, and that was handled well too.
This hotel, while TECHNICALLY within the city limits of Paris, is , for all-intents-and-purposes associated with Neuilly-Sur-Seine on the opposite side of Peripherique, and Neuilly is most certainly our favorite place to stay in Paris. We were able to walk to Porte Maillot in 5 min, Arc D'Triomphe in 20 minutes, and the Eiffel Tower in 45 minutes. (Once at Champs du Mars, we just jumped on the Orange 82 [city bus] and were back in Neuilly in short order). Just down the block from the hotel is a pharmacy and a Carrefour market on Avenue Roule in Neuilly ... walking through that area is safe, charming and beautiful.
NOW - as a Marriott Gold member, this is my first experience with the AC brand. The rooms are somewhat spartan, but comfortable. The furnishings and doors and such are starting to show some age. The shower was strong and warm, but the sink in our bathroom required someone to come up and unclog it. The commode is in a separate room from the shower, a room with no sink. My teenaged-son and I couldn't get past the fact that the door handle was probably rife with bacteria.
We DID feel otherwise comfortable in our little slice of Paris, and we have every intention of returning. Yet, the fact that Marriott (not the hotel, this is a BRAND decision) does not include breakfast for it's Gold members is troublesome because it essentially ups the price by €44/day. The petit dejuener is excellent, but quite expensive at €22 per person per day. This is the exact reason that I will no longer stay at Courtyard properties. (By comparison, Hampton includes breakfast for everyone, and Hilton Garden Inn does for Gold and Diamond members).
In closing, four stars is appropriate. I would return, and there are myriad places to get breakfast within walking distance.
Unfortunately the showers although they look amazing are pretty pathetic and the plug system in the basin is feeble. The room was clean, bed comfortable and it was good to have a separate loo. Housekeeping is a little slack - we were surprised only to have one small bottle of water between 2 people for 2 nights and had to ask for the tea/coffee/milk to be topped up as it was all in very short supply. However new supplies of coffee etc came pretty quickly when requested. The restaurant is tiny and this caused problems at breakfast on the Sunday when people had to queue, breakfast itself was excellent. The staff were polite and friendly.
