The hotel is in a wonderful location where you can visit famous monuments on foot. It's a few minutes' walk to the Louvre Museum, the Jardin de Tuileries and the Concorde. However, make sure you are clear when asking for a room with a view of the Eiffel Tower, as the views are only had when you step out onto the balcony and even then it's not a great view ( the Eiffel is a bit far, but you can see it best from the Concorde). Also there is MAJOR car traffic in the streets surrounding this hotel so if you're a light sleeper ask for a room to the inner courtyard instead as you can hear the noise even with the windows closed, you will have to ask for a noise breaker or a change of rooms. Make sure you ask for a voucher if they ever give you anything free as they'll charge you later. They have a pleasant terrace and bar, and of course gorgeous chandeliers and marble flooring. Although for the money and the lack of service you might want to stay at a smaller hotel nearby.

If you have the opportunity to stay in the Westin Vendome, stay! You will gorgeous rooftop views of the Eiffel Tower, Tuilleries Garden, Place de Concorde, the Louvre. Can't beat the location, easy walk to a ton of spots to visit.

Couldn't agree more with Melinda. This hotel doesn't feel "truly" French. It's spacious, which is good for families. But the food and drinks are overpriced, and asking guests to pay for Internet is insulting when you can get it for free at hotels 1/3 the price.

A grand destination! Elegant, fine food, luxurious rooms. I especially love the breakfast, healthy and delicious. A very accommodating hotel, they strive for guests comfort. Centrally located. A beautiful place to come for the night to!

Grand Grand Grand! Westin Paris has the old school grandeur with its center courts and marble columns. The location is wonderful just steps from the Louvre, metro, shopping, and other attractions. The price is reflected on this premium BUT I would point to this as still a really good value because of its location, service, and starwood heavenly bed features.

Nice property...somewhat sketchy service (it was busy fashion week so I'll see next time). Rooms was Deluxe...comfort OK but room was tired...paint pealing in the bathroom for example...Check out was a nightmare...Altogether OK hotel, don't know about "deluxe" rating for the property...Go during slow times if you want extras!

Formerly the Intercontinental. Location is a premium. At the center of the city, walking distance to a ton of sites and shopping.

Small rooms,30 euros / day internet, and a concierge who seemed pained to have to deal with guests. Was dirt cheap due to a discount travel site but still left an unpleasant taste in the mouth.

This is somewhere between a 3 and 4 star hotel for me. It's lovely, but EXPENSIVE (even when you're using points), and I didn't find the service very impressive. We had a 1 year old with us when we stayed and they brought a mesh strangulation vessel as the first option for him to sleep in. I had to pitch a fit to get them to bring us a pack-n-play.

That said, it's a centrally located grand old hotel, and they weren't 1/2 as terrible as the French can be when they feel like it. (Stayed in 2006.)

2010 UPDATE: They've redone the rooms to look like EVERY other American chain hotel (lots of beige). Boo. And, of course, there are Americans EVERYWHERE. WiFi was only in the lobby and 39EUR/day, internet in the rooms was 29EUR day, but you had to use a cable (?). Basic room service breakfast: 44EUR. Standard room was even smaller than I remembered when I wrote my first review.

All of that said, the hotel is SO well located, with a play structure for the kids RIGHT across the street in the Tuilleries and the Louvre a VERY short walk up the street. The plethora of Americans means that everyone speaks English, and they attempt to be nice and accommodating.

As soon as you leave the hotel, there are LOADS of cheap places to eat/drink and get everything you need, so unless you're stuck in the room for some reason, there's no reason to rely on the hotel for eats/drinks. (Although the bar has excellent free bar snacks, so it's worth a drink or two just to score some nibbles.)

Between the first and second review, I downgraded this from 4 stars to 3, but I still think it's a 3.5.
