December  2005
 The décor of the hotel is a mixture of several styles which looked gorgeous. The hotel looked recently renovated but preserved its style. The room was equipped perfectly (modern lighting system, more than 100 TV stations, 24 radio stations, CD) and had a view of the marvelous inner courtyard (fountain and birds). The bathroom is perfect, the breakfast is very good. There is a fitness room in the hotel. The service level is very high and the staff tries to be personal with the guests.

  Excellent location (off the Champs-Elysee and near the Eiffel Tower) and staff service but the quality of the rooms is really average. The lobby and the exterior are designed in a very peculiar and interesting style. Everything in the room was electronic and worked at the button push. The service is top notch and could not be better.
 The room is designed in a classical French style but looked a bit boring, without ingenuity. I was not impressed by American breakfast. I was expecting a bit more panache for the price they charged me.

 The people at the reception are very nice and they render personalized service. There is a good bar in the hotel. The room was very nice and comfortable with comfy bed. The location is very good for shopping.
 The toilet was small and bathroom door blocked the toilet when opened. I think a 5 stars place should have a separated bathtub and a shower and a collection of CDs in the room.

 We had a good room with a classic design. Very nice classic lobby. The staff is very warm and professional and spoke good English. The room was nicely furnished with flat TV but not very big. The hotel is general is very cozy and perfectly located.
 The bathroom could be designed in a better way.

              Située au 8ème étage du célèbre Hôtel Plaza Athénée à Paris, la Suite Eiffel Terrasse est composée d’une grande chambre, d’une salle de bain, d’un salon habillé d’un immense canapé d’angle, d’un bar et d’un espace salle à manger. Elle a tout pour séduire ses hôtes et offre une vue à plus de 180° sur le ciel de Paris: ce qui en fait la suite la mieux exposée de la capitale.

              Ainsi, la Suite Eiffel Terrasse porte bien son nom: que vous soyez installé dans le canapé du salon, allongé sur le lit ou dans votre bain, vous pourrez contempler à votre guise la majestueuse Tour Eiffel, de jour comme de nuit. En effet, grâce à un jeu de technique ultramoderne, le mur de verre de la salle de bain, pouvant s’opacifier sur commande, permet de profiter pleinement de la vue sur la Tour Eiffel ou au contraire, de privatiser l’espace.

              Une terrasse de 28 m² située au dessus du salon, permet de jouir d’une vue à 360° sur la ville Lumière: véritable appartement privé de l’avenue Montaigne, notre Suite Eiffel vous promet un séjour inoubliable.

              De style Art Déco, la Suite Eiffel Terrasse présente une dominante de bleu ciel et un camaïeu de couleurs taupe et chocolat, qui se fondent parfaitement avec le mobilier. Palissandre, ébène de Macassar et acajou sont les trois espèces de bois prédominantes dans la Suite Eiffel Terrasse. Les tapis aux motifs Art Déco, les rideaux en soie lourde dont les bordures ont été rebrodées par la société Jean François Lesage, dans des camaïeux de fils d’argent, amènent chaleur et générosité à cette suite.

                  The hotel was absolutely amazing! I stayed here as I'm a big fan of sex and the city(the last 2 episodes were made here) the staff were kind enough to show me the room where the episodes were made and allowed us to take photos and go to the balcony to take photos.. It's in a gorgeous part of Paris too, right in the heart of the champs-élysées (make sure you have lots of money for this hotel)

                  The hotel was ridiculously over priced €600 for 1 night, it was a once off thing that I won't be doing again, the mini bar was completely over priced, ridiculously over priced, €6 for a special k bar and €9 for a mini can of Pringles!!! The rooms were extremely warm, couldn't get the air con working and it wasn't even warm in Paris when we were there! Luckily our breakfast was included as for a continental breakfast (croissant, pastries, toast, tea/coffee) it was €41 per person which is madness, it was lovely but not for that kind of money! No kettle in room to make tea/coffee, if you wanted tea it was €12, I don't know how they can even charge those prices, I know Paris is expensive but that was O.T.T and most of Paris was actually fine for drinking/eating to my surprise

                  It was absolutely magnificent. It was our 25th anniversary and they upgraded us to a beautiful suite.

                  Minimum room rate is arround +/- 950€ a night, than you have to pay extra for WIFI and water, I don't agree on this.

                  The décor of the hotel is a mixture of several styles which looked gorgeous. The hotel looked recently renovated but preserved its style. The room was equipped perfectly (modern lighting system, more than 100 TV stations, 24 radio stations, CD) and had a view of the marvelous inner courtyard (fountain and birds). The bathroom is perfect, the breakfast is very good. There is a fitness room in the hotel. The service level is very high and the staff tries to be personal with the guests.

                  Excellent location (off the Champs-Elysee and near the Eiffel Tower) and staff service but the quality of the rooms is really average. The lobby and the exterior are designed in a very peculiar and interesting style. Everything in the room was electronic and worked at the button push. The service is top notch and could not be better.

                  The room is designed in a classical French style but looked a bit boring, without ingenuity. I was not impressed by American breakfast. I was expecting a bit more panache for the price they charged me.

                  The people at the reception are very nice and they render personalized service. There is a good bar in the hotel. The room was very nice and comfortable with comfy bed. The location is very good for shopping.

                  The toilet was small and bathroom door blocked the toilet when opened. I think a 5 stars place should have a separated bathtub and a shower and a collection of CDs in the room.

                  We had a good room with a classic design. Very nice classic lobby. The staff is very warm and professional and spoke good English. The room was nicely furnished with flat TV but not very big. The hotel is general is very cozy and perfectly located.

                  The bathroom could be designed in a better way.
