Neighbourhood
Champs-Élysées
This area is characterized by its namesake avenue which extends northwest from the Louvre to the modern business district, punctuated by the iconic Arc de Triomphe. Grand embassies stand among impressive offices and presidential palaces; architecture from 19th century Universal Exhibitions, homes, art galleries, and 19th century streets designed by Baron Haussmann flank haute-couture boutiques. This neighborhood never rests, buzzing with visitors from around the world at all times of day and night, all within a stone's throw of the Seine.

I came for work and have to say I was blown away by the hotel and the service and amenities of this hotel. Bath and bathroom products great. Bed super comfy, staff was attentive and professional. Breakfast was downstairs and was one of the best breakfast buffets I’ve ever seen.

Stayed here for one night with my bf on our weekend trip to Paris. It's literally 2 mins walk from the Louis Vuitton store at the champs elysee and metro. So convenient. Bed was very comfortable, although it was a little warm at night. Perhaps we didn't adjust the temperature

This hotel is all about the location. It’s right in Paris’ golden triangle, so if luxury shopping is what you want, this is your place. The entire lobby area & ground floor is gorgeous & beautifully designed in a contemporary way. When I checked in, the woman was on the phone

Dear Renaesworldofficial, First of all thank you so much for having chosen our hotel for your Paris visit. We are very sorry about the lady that was filling in for 5 days during the sick leave of our regular man receptionist. She isn't a member of our staff and we are deeply sorry that she was on the phone while your check in and gave you a key that didn't work. We apologize for the dog that guests left alone in the room. We don't allow the clients to leave them unattended but sometimes people do not listen or they think that their pet won't make any noise. We rarely have dogs in our hotel and it's a shame that a loud one was there during your stay. All of our rooms will be renewed and for the moment we have done about half of them but the pictures are showing exactly how they are in our website so the clients know what they will get. I hope that you had a new one. We all wish you a nice winter time and hope to welcome you back for your next trip and make this up to you. Please don't hesitate to contact me for a great deal and upgrading. Kind regards Alain Lagarrigue

We stayed a few days including the New Year Eve and definitely would recommend and would back again. Splendid interior, newly refurbished room and helpful personnel. The location is 12 out of 10! The heart of the city but not noisy champes. We were impressed with welcoming

When the receptionist found out we just got married he immediately offered a glass of Champagne. The location of the hotel is unbeatable. You can walk pretty much to anywhere. Our room is nice, impact but with big windows. Great interior designs with stories of King Francois

Hello there, Do all rooms have a balcony?
Hello from the Francois 1er, Thank you so much for your question. Unfortunately all the rooms do not have a balcony, it's only a few so if you wish to have one when you book, kindly send us directly your booking by email and we will take care of this. If you use a world wide website like expedia to make your booking, we can not guarantee a balcony for you even if you put that to your comments. Have a great week and should you need any further assistance, please dont hesitate to contact us. Kind regards The reception team

Looking for nearby restaurant recommendations for excellent local cuisine. Merci!
Ahhhh, there is a perfect spot just down the street, "Philippe et Jean-Pierre" ... and it was recommended by the hotel as a locally owned and managed dining spot appropriate for lunch or dinner. We had dinner and one of the two named owners (Philippe et Jean-Pierre) ran the front of the house and the other the kitchen. We found it to be excellent. Look for the TripAdvisor rankings, you'll be pleased. Enjoy.
