If you’re a fan of Art Deco, you’ll love L’Hotel Du Collectionneur’s long corridors lined with period prints, the liberal use of marble and the genuine antiques interspersed with convincing reproductions. The reception area is vast and glitzy, with a gorgeous display of fresh flowers, and the courtyard garden is a rare luxury in Paris — perfect for sunny summer afternoons.
Bed and Bath
Guestrooms are stylish, spacious, uncluttered and comfortable. All bathrooms, in green marble, have a shower and lovely products from Gilchrist and Soames; some come with a tub. All rooms have WiFi and flat-screen TVs, while those on the top floor have small balconies and views of the Eiffel Tower.
The large brasserie-style restaurant Le Safran serves traditional French cuisine; it’s presided over by head chef Philippe Daigneaux. And there’s live music twice a week in the Purple Bar. Guests in Executive Rooms have the added bonus of 24-hour access to the lounge on the Executive floor (accessible only to those armed with their gold Executive card), where snacks and refreshments are served throughout the day. The luxe spa has a hammam, hydrotonic bath and massage rooms.
How to Get There
Went with my family of 3. Our daughter is 5. The hotel was very accommodating to our needs. Room was clean and tidy. Breakfast was excellent with fresh juices, espresso, pastries, baguettes and more. Location is great. There are a couple of metro stations within a short (and very safe) walk. Parc Monceau is a lovely, quaint little park for getting some fresh air. Many restaurants nearby as well. Everything from quaint brasseries to high end Champs-Elysées dining. Concierge desk was extremely helpful with restaurant and laundry recommendations as well as getting us tickets to Museé Louvre at only a couple more euros than in person and we got to skip the main ticket line. The only improvement I would like is having 1-2 more available outlets in the room.
My second visit in this hotel.
The location is very good near the center and the metro. Staff were again very friendly. You feel safe in the middle of Paris.
It was my second stay but certainly not my last...
Nice hotel but fell short of standard expected of a 5*. Shower was mouldy and dripped incesssantly. Breakfast was self-service, wasn’t even offered a cup of tea or coffee. Conference amenities were rather basic.
The hotel is elegant and beautiful. The employee's are gracious and respectful. They have a security team which made me feel safe (even with the riots going on I felt very safe). The breakfast was unbelievable, it was a breakfast made for a king...They had a lot of variety and everything was fresh. They even had a chef making fresh omelets. The location was right in the center of paris less than 10 minute walk to the arc and to the metro. There was a cute restaurant next door called "LINOs" the food was great, we ate there a lot because most of the restaurants were expensive and the food was not good. At LINOs the prices were the same but at least the food was good. The hotel also had a bar area that was elegant and the services was wonderful. We walked all over Paris and this hotel was one of the most elegant and in a safe part of the city. Paris has a lot of shady areas, so you have to be careful where you stay. We were near other hotels and restaurants so the area always had people around even late at night. I never write reviews, but I was so impressed with our hotel...I can't stop talking about it. Do not let the negative reviews fool you. This is a really nice and safe hotel. Trust me you can't go wrong. It looks like a million bucks and they make you feel like a million bucks...it was awesome. My bostonian slang....
