Forget everything you thought you knew about the InterContinental brand. With just 55 guestrooms, this boutique property features a playful design by Bruno Borrione, with funky wall murals, Pop Art–inspired throw pillows and wallpapered ceilings. At night locals gather at the low-lit restaurant, Le M64, which serves contemporary European dishes out of an open kitchen. There’s also a small fitness room where guests can request spa services, including deep tissue massages. And while the property doesn’t have grand public spaces or soaring views, its setting in a restored private mansion is quintessentially Parisian.
In the Area
Situated near the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs-Elysées, the InterContinental is a wonderful jumping-off point for exploring the gems of Paris. It’s a short metro ride to the backstreets of the Marais, known for its one-off boutiques and restaurants as well as the newly refurbished Picasso Museum. Stroll the banks of the Seine in the early evening, watching the locals quaffing wine and eating bread and cheese. Or devote a day to take in the Louvre, then stare up in wonder at the Eiffel Tower, a charming cliché if ever there was one.
How to Get There
Excellent location near by the champs elysees and the arc. You are in proximity of RER cdg etoile and the other metro stations like georges V
Helpful team as the intercontinental always offer highest service up to the expectations.
I travel a lot and often come to Paris. I tried this hotel and enjoyed staying at this hotel. It is one of my best experiences in a Paris hotel. Very comfortable and very friendly staff. The hotel we recently renovated. We also enjoyed this great buffet breakfast, lots of choices and the bread and pastries were still hot when we ate them! Would definitely come back here. Thank you Mathew for the great service.
I booked this hotel as a risk on Priceline at a superb discount and it turned out to be a pleasant surprise. I arrived super early at around 9am and they actually not only allow us to check in early, but also offered us a free upgrade- a room with a view! The staffs are fantastic, we didn’t book breakfast but they brought out croissants for us while we wait for our Uber. The locations is just amazing! Walking distance to the Eiffel Tower and surrounding areas, perfect for leisure strolls. Really recommend this place!
We only stayed one night this time-Tuesday, 8 January. Because it was low season and due to our Platinum and Spire Ambassador statuses, they upgraded us to one of the best rooms in the house-the King Bed Terrace suite. It was great with a patio on one side and an Eiffel Tower view from the other side. On the side with the view, there was a desk and slanted roof which could be a hazard, but I didn't knock myself out! There was a huge bed with luxury linens, firm mattress, and solid pillows. There was an old fashioned-type clawfoot tub that made for a great, soaking, luxury bath. The shower was separate as was the toilet, one on each side of the tub area. My only concern, which I shared with the person at check-out, was the toilet room. It needed a timed heat lamp. When we were there, it was a bit chilly, and with no heat source in the toilet room, it could mean a cold seat and a chilly visit. The shower was naturally heated with hot water so it was ok and not too cold after the water got going. The TV and wifi worked flawlessly as well. The room was very quiet and only one of 2 on the top floor. We opted to do breakfast since we used our Chase annual Free Night for the room and only had to pay the daily city tax or about 4 euro/person. My breakfast with the buffet plus eggs made to order (I had 2 omelets and eggs sunny side up) was 30 euro, and my spouse's buffet only breakfast was 24 euro. The buffet included scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, some meats, pastries, juices, coffee/tea, and more. It was a very filling breakfast that held us over until dinner! I like to splurge on a good breakfast sometimes. The staff was great as always although there wasn't as much contact with the doormen and concierge people this time, but the front desk remembered our names and greeted us at each passing. As has been said before, this is one of the smaller Intercontinental locations and doesn't have a lounge. For this reason, we were given some choices from the mini-bar as our welcome gift plus some bottles of water. This is a great place in this part of Paris and one I hope to return to in the not too distant future. One of our favorite Parisian restaurants, Chez Gabrielle, is a short walk away just past the Arc. I am glad we weren't there on a weekend this time so we avoided any protesters around the Arc. Merci pour tous. A la prochaine fois!
I am going to Paris every month and I have to stay close to the 8th because I have a project there, so I tend to choose Hotels because of the Location. Being a Platinum member of IHG, I decided to stay this time at the Marceau one. The entrance is nice but when you get into the lobby you start to think that something is not quite "intercontinental-ish" there. They are going to tell you.."we are the smallest intercontinental in the world", then your expectations shift towards the "boutique" side but it is not, is a cheap version. When I got into the room I couldn't believe my eyes. I had to call reception to check that there was no mistake, and that was the room I was given. With Just me and my suitcases the room was fool and it was impossible to move unless you climb on top of your luggage. The whole configuration of the room wasn't intercontinental, was Holiday inn type. Terrible. I complained and I was moved to a different room. They upgrade me. But I was ready to leave the Hotel. If you are a gym bunny forget to go to the gym, it is the size of a cupboard. They say that they prefer you to go outside instead, they propose jogging routes...quite difficult if you need to use the weights. The breakfast experience was terrible. Breakfast suppose to start at 6:30 and when I went at that time (i have to leave the hotel by 7:15 every day), nothing was ready they were starting to set up at 6:40, so basically i had a coffee and that was all. I thought that this was because of the renovations happening in the restaurant but no, second, third day happened..but with regrets and being a Fan of Intercontinental i suggest you to look for another hotel, there are so many in the area and you will make your money to worth more.NEVER GOING BACK!
