Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Opposite the Parc Monceau, and a 10-minute walk to the the Arc De Triomphe and the Champs-Elysées
  • Beautiful Art-Deco design
  • Some rooms have private balconies with views of the city, garden, or Eiffel Tower
  • Spa with hydro-tonic baths, steam room, sauna, and massages; fitness center with cardio and weight machines.
  • Mediterranean-inspired garden with patio
  • Restaurant serves fine French cuisine amid Art Deco splendor
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Meeting/event rooms for up to 650 people
  • Purple Bar, with its crafted cocktail menus, is a classy place to drink and hang out

Cons

  • Some guests have reported mix-ups at check-in, and slow check-in
  • Turndown service not available in all room categories

Bottom Line

The luxurious Hotel Du Collectionneur Arc De Triomphe Paris has 470 elegant rooms (including 52 suites) tricked out in Art Deco-style furnishings, though it’s the opulent lobby and pretty rose-filled patio that make the biggest impression. A 10-minute stroll from the Champs-Elysees, the hotel features a spa, fitness center, and on-site parking. Courcelles Metro Station (line 2) is within walking distance. There's an elegant restaurant that offers fine French dining, and a fancy-cocktail bar that's a swank place to hang out.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

A grand and glitzy Art Deco palace

The Hotel Du Collectionneur Arc de Triomphe pays homage to all things Art Deco. The design team includes the internationally acclaimed architect Stanislas Fiszer for the original plans, designers Jacques Garcia and Alexandre Danan for the decoration, and Olivier Riols for the landscape design.

The Art Nouveau building is dotted with bountiful windows and flanked by manicured shrubs. The gigantic lobby has a mural on the ceiling, four grand crystal chandeliers, and beautiful, towering flower arrangements. The furniture is plush and crimson; the reception and desk and floor are detailed in shiny marble. Perfume diffusers scent the lobby with a citrusy fragrance.

An inner courtyard is home to a formal garden with a mermaid sculpture and bountiful roses. The sweeping staircase is a replica of the one that beloved 1930s architect Auguste Perret famously designed for the Trocadero Economic and Social Center. Apparently, the inspiration for the hotel was a luxury liner, and the result is quite stately and luxurious.

 Location

In a business-centric yet chic neighborhood that's near the Arc De Triomphe

The Hotel du Collectionneur is about a 10-minute walk to the Champs-Elysees and the Arc De Triomphe, on the wide, busy, and fancy Rue de Courcelles in Paris’s 8th arrondissement. The hotel is surrounded by office and government buildings. Courcelles metro atation (line 2) is a quarter of a mile away.

 Rooms

Art Deco-inspired rooms, some with gorgeous views

The rooms here are decked out in detailed Art Deco-style decor. Fifty-two suites have incredible views of the City of Light, and 33 rooms and suites include private terraces. Many rooms overlook the Andalusian patio, a tropical garden inside urban Paris, and all rooms are bright and sunny. Bathrooms have marble countertops and tiles, tubs, and lush toiletries; the wardrobe, dressers, and headboards are crafted from Brazilian rosewood and Macassar ebony wood. Rooms have flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi. Those staying in Executive Rooms have access to the Executive Lounge, which has a large-screen TV and serves breakfast and snacks, and a "secret" decked terrace.

 Features

A luxurious spa, fitness center, restaurant, bar, patio, and events space set The Hotel du Collectionneur Arc de Triomphe apart.

A spacious patio is full of rose trees, and a beautiful terrace facing the lobby allows guests to bask in the sunshine (when Paris sunshine happens!). The Mosaic Spa by Decleor & Carita includes an oriental steam room, a hydro-tonic bath, and sauna. There’s a fully equipped, high-tech fitness center, and guests can get their workout on 24 hours a day. The hotel has a 18,298-square foot meeting and events facility: That’s eight modular meeting rooms, which can accommodate up to 650 guests for either coroporate events or weddings. For those in executive-level rooms and there for events, the hotel provides 24/7 access to its Executive Lounge, where snacks, drinks, and comfy couches abound. Hungry guests can dine at Le Safran Restaurant, al fresco, when weather permits. The Purple Bar, which looks as it’s from a ‘30s Hollywood movie, employs three mixologists to craft special cocktail menus.
