Very helpful staff, perfect location, rooms a little small.

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
Cons: No free Internet, expensive breakfast
This was a great 'headquarters' location because we were out of the hotel most of the time. We could, for example, walk back to the hotel from the Louvre, change clothes and rest before walking to the Champs Elysee Christmas market. I do wish I had known there was a business center tucked away at the back of the lobby...wouldn't have bothered with the 7 euros daily wifi fee. The concierge was very helpful; he made a few calls for us about a temporary exhibit (The Tara in Paris), and was very knowledgeable...easy directions, find a casual restaurant on New Year's Eve, etc... Another guest was complaining about how small the rooms were, but we had assumed as much for this location and beautiful old building. The breakfast brunch was ridiculously expensive (78 euros for 2) and totally not worth it.

Great location, great breakfast, unfriendly staff

Cons: No free Internet
Great location--within walking distance to many Paris sites. The breakfast buffet was outstanding though sometimes very busy. The wait staff and desk staff seemed more interested in each other than the guests. They were often dismissive and sometimes a little rude. The concierge was helpful but treated guests as naive and ignorant. Had to pay for wifi and even then, was erratic. Arranged for bags to be picked up upon departure and the bellman never showed up. Had to call down for service. Rooms were small, but clean and nice. Probably would not return, but would look for a hotel with a similar location.

Great locations for shopping, seeing the Lourve, Eiffel Tower, and Norte Dame.

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
Cons: No free Internet
I would stay at Westin Paris on my next visit to Paris. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Excellent location to see major sites and do some serious shopping.

Helpful and friendly staff

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
Cons: could use a mirror in the main room
The location was great--close to everything including the metro. The concierge desk was fantastic and so helpful and friendly. The hotel, as we read, was a bit dated, but pretty and it was clean.

Delightful

Check in was a breeze, both the desk clerks spoke english very well. The hotel's location was perfect, walking distance to most everything anyone could possible want to do in Paris. The room it's self was a very nice size, ample closet space. We over packed & had plenty of room, we only need some extra hangers.

Fabulous

It's not the Ritz but very nice. The decor is beautiful. The room service and all staff were pleasant and helpful as we did not speak much french. The retaruants there are fabulous. It's centrally located close to the Louvre, Jardin T., Eiffel Tower, Opera Garnier and the Moulin Rouge is 10-15 mins by cab.

Spring Break

It was a great trip.The staff were very good to us and had our room ready for us.....The hotel is very close to all the museums that you wanted to go...you don't need to rent a car..Take the metro that is very cheap or the bus.....If you needed help the hotel was very nice to help you and so many ways...We where treated very nice the whole entire time.They even had our taxi ready to take us to the airport when it was time to go back home....The only negative thing about the hotel is that the rooms are some and their restaurant is very expensive to eat...I recommand to go to cafe's that are close to the hotel or the hotel is willing to help you to find some place to eat.

outstanding experience in the 1st

I just spent 7 nights at the Westin in the first. I have been reading reviews for weeks in anticipation of my trip. Some reviews almost made me change to another property. the GOOD I arrived at 10:30 am - was greeted at the curb where my luggage was whisked away. I was warmly greeted at the reception and although check in was not until 2 pm, I was assured I would have a lovely room within 30 minuets. As I waited i could not help but notice the exquisite architecture - the lobby surrounds a stunning courtyard. It is as if you are outdoors. My room was ready as promised and it was beautiful. Very large by Parisian standards, nice decor, great bathroom and incredible view onto the courtyard. I kept the large french doors open at night to the sound of the fountain. Very peaceful - ( room 1007 ) I read others complaining about the thin walls and this is true - there were only a couple of times that I even noticed though. Within blocks of most of the major sights, the location is ideal, and a very short metro ride to the Marais-) I felt very well taken care of and my friends staying nearby were quite impressed. not so GOOD This is not the best hotel for a business traveler. The lack of wifi in the room was a hassle for me. The fact that I was tethered to a desk at 9 euros an hour to do my computer communication and research about the parisian hot spots was not good. Bring your own converter for electricity. They do provide one in the minibar - tried to charge me 12 euros a day for using it.

First Time in Paris

This was our first visit to Paris and we really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is centrally located near many locations and within walking distance. The hotel is located far from the Charles de Gaulle airport so make sure you have plenlty of Euros and give yourself at least 30 mins for travel time depending on the traffic. The room service is a bit pricey but the food was very good. You are better off eating out somewhere else in Paris if you want to get more for your dollar. The internet access is a bit pricey so make sure you have your own service when you visit. The room has some good information on the city, on resturants, attractions with prices and times that they open and close which was very useful. Overall a great experience we would definitly stay there again.

Below Average

The hotel's best asset is its location. Right next to the Louvre, and Place de la Concorde. Near excellent shoppes and cafes. The staff was friendly. That is where the positive notes end. The rooms are partitioned by paper thin walls. We could not sleep as we could hear everything in the adjacent rooms. The windows had very poor noise reduction and very poor insulation. Incredibly drafty. Very poor temperature control. We stayed here in January and next to a major street therefore these were significant issues. We also were charged significantly more to get a half decent view. As a final blow, after we checked out, we specifically requested the concierge to get us a taxi that accepted credit cards as we had exchanged most of our euros back to dollars. Well, they got us a taxi that did not and we realized this halfway to the airport. The taxi did take dollars but at a very unfavorable rate. I am partly to blame for trusting the hotel and not asking again before getting in the taxi.
