Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Stylish boutique hotel in a historic Parisian setting
  • Central location near the Champs Elysees and l'Arc de Triomphe
  • Full restaurant and lounge on-site
  • Outdoor terrace surrounded by beautiful architecture
  • Rooms come with flat-screen TVs, iPod/iPad docks, coffeemakers and minibars
  • Bathrooms are spacious and have Hermes toiletries
  • Free Wi-Fi and a business center
  • Small fitness center
  • High-tech meeting space with a contemporary look

Cons

  • Higher prices than nearby competition
  • Street-facing rooms can get noisy
  • During the week, the crowd is mostly business (a plus for some!)

Bottom Line

This historic Parisian building near Champs Elysees -- once a private mansion of Comte de Breteuil, and formerly known as the Crowne Plaza hotel -- is now owned by the InterContinental brand. But the property doesn't feel like a chain, offering 55 rooms and stylish boutique design by Bruno Borrione. Well-dressed guests linger in the communal areas, which include a lounge, and outdoor terrace surrounded by potted plants and classic architecture. The attached jazz-themed restaurant serves continental breakfast in the mornings and international gourmet cuisine for lunch and dinner. Rooms are modern and bright, with red accents, black and white ceiling murals, iPod/iPad docks, mini-fridges, coffeemakers, and flat-screen TVs. Bathrooms -- also impressive -- include sliding doors, deep sinks, shower/tub combos and Hermes toiletries. A number of features were provided with business travelers in mind, including the high-tech meeting space and business corner, which are decorated with hip wall murals and atmospheric lighting. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout.
