Marvelous prime-location Paris hotel
Posted Sep 24, 2016
We stayed at the Hotel de Vendome for our 40th anniversary vacation in Paris. The hotel is beautiful, the staff were supportive and nice, our room was wonderful and comfortable. The bed was great, linens wonderful, comfortable furniture, with a beautiful marble bathroom with soaking tub/shower. The rooms are serviced three times a day, so everything is fresh. If we ever needed anything, they responded in minutes. The only thing I would improve about our room is a little better lighting in the bathroom and lowering the makeup mirror (I'm short).
The location is not to be beat with the hotel being a short walk to many of the key Paris sites and within a short walk of three Metro stations (and I walk with a cane). The area is also very safe since the Ministry of Justice is at the Place Vendome and it is guarded. The shopping around the hotel is very high-end and loaded with jewelry stores. There are also several nice restaurants, cafes, and a bread/sandwich shop nearby.
We also had dinner at the hotel's restaurant which was one of the best restaurant experiences we've ever had (we had the tasting menu with wine pairings) and a bargain for what you get. The hotel bar was also excellent.
I read a recent review about the staff at the front desk not being friendly and our experience was just the opposite. Every time we passed through the lobby all the staff greeted us. Every time I had a question or needed a recommendation they were very helpful.
