How to Get There
Had planned to stay for two nights at the hotel, but the room looked like an anxious basement with a dirty window overlooking a construction site. Not the way you want to spend a weekend in one of the most beautiful cities of the world. The service in the hotel was extremely rude and they refused to refund the hotel room. Spent more than an hour trying to sort it out with Agoda who was the travel agent that had handled the booking. The personnel at the front desk (“France”) just kept on arguing that the hotel looks just the way it should and that there will be no construction work in the weekend so it shouldn’t disturb us. After endless debates, I managed to cancel the reservation but still had to pay for one night although we didn’t stay at the hotel. Fortunately, I called a friend of mine who set us up in a real five star hotel (Buddha Bar Hotel). I do not recommend La Maison Champs Elysees for anyone as a five star hotel - in my view it corresponds more to a three star hotel.
I love this hotel, for the warm welcome every time I return and for the delicious breakfast every morning. The location is perfect for a mix of business, sight-seeing and shopping in a very upscale but quiet street. The design is beautiful, and functional - every room I’ve stayed in has its own personality and quirks. It really feels like home, every time I return - great team, fun hotel, delicious food in the perfect location.
I was excited to stay at La Maison Champs Elysees for a couple of nights after seeing the pictures, and particularly after I achieved Marriott Rewards Platinum status one week before. The disappointment started at check-in: only one person helping the guests at the ridiculously small front desk, no greeting as a Rewards member, no water, no snack, of course no upgrade, and I had to wait around 40 minutes to get a room (it was late morning so ok, check-in usually starts later). I was excited to be on the top floor (6th floor) but the room was underwhelming. Really basic decor, a Nespresso machine placed in a cupboard with no outlet (so you have to move it to the desk to be able to plug it). There was a window with a view over a roof with a gigantic air duct. On my second night I was woken up by a continuous humming noise coming from the outside. The shower ceiling was really low, and the bathrobe was old and scratchy. To me, nothing screamed boutique, but rather basic three-stars hotel.
