Grand both inside and out, the InterContinental Paris Le Grand Hotel's Empire-style arches, gold-winged statues, and cherry wood embellishments all contribute to a true boutique feel. The glass roof of 'La Verriere' winter garden in the center of the hotel reflects the famous Louvre pyramid, and lights up at night while you polish off a French pudding in the restaurant beneath. Sip champagne and admire the painted ceilings and crown moldings of Cafe de la Paix before dinner, and work that crick out of your neck with a Polynesian massage in the I-Spa by Algotherm.

Neighborhood

The Napoleon III-commissioned Opera Garnier is just across the street from the InterContinental Hotel, so you're always steps from attending a performance or simply staring up at the 19th century architecture. The Opera Metro station is also handy here - families will be pleased to known that the Tuileries Gardens are a quick ride from the hotel, as is the Louvre Museum. For those with more flexibility, it's equally appealing to wander down to the banks of the Seine and spend the day discovering riverside cafes and independent shops.

Hints and tips

For the most enviable Parisian panoramas, request a north- or south-facing room on an upper floor or, for a quieter stay, take a room facing the courtyard.

Since the river is within easy reach, make time for a Seine dinner cruise one evening - watching the City of Light twinkle into life at night is a memory not to be missed.

paris for the weekend

it was a quick weekend trip to take in good food and lots of champagne. all was in easy reach of the hotel. the concierge staff was helpful with suggestions and reservations. if you call ahead they can arrange hard to get reservations and tickets to opera/ballet which is right next door.

Lovely and comfortable

Paris Le Grand was in a great location, 5 minutes walking distance to the Opera metro station. The hotel was pleasingly decorated and the lobby and atrium area had a luxiourous feel. We had a king size bed in our room, which was very comfortable. The one item that we found odd was that the toilet was in a separate room from the shower and sink. All in all, a lovely place in a beautiful city. We typically order room service for breakfast on our last day of a trip, but the high priced menu made us change our mind. Beignets and other pastries outside the hotel and even at the entrance to the Opera metro station are worth a stop.

For a unique dining experience, try La Fourmi Ailee. It is located near Notre Dame near Saint Michel metro stop at 8 rue de Fouarre. The quiche is absolutely phenomenal. Great portion size and the servers are very nice.

luxury at it's finest!

Le Grand was very luxurious. Comfortable bed, clean room, & very close to metro. Located in a nice area of Paris. My wife & I celebrated our 10th anniversary (2nd honeymoon) it was romantic & more than I could have expected! Concierge is extremely helpful, especially making reservations for dinner or excursions, & setting up pick up times with transportation. It was beneficial to have them translate as well. Hint: make reservations for Eiffel tower on line to go up to top. The wait was always about an hour with no reservation.

Not as Grand as I Had Wished

My husband and I booked a small room at The Grand for our last two nights in France. We expected the room to be small and it was, but it was small, clean, and charming. What we did not expect was poor service-- no one answered at the concierge (this happened numerous times), people who called us were not transferred to our room and were told we were not staying there, and our waitress at the bar stormed off after we asked her what the special was for the day. I was not impressed and would look for somewhere else to stay on our next visit.

fabulous week-end

We took advantage of low winter rates with a combined plane and hotel deal, going to a much nicer hotel than we would normally book. The Intercontinental was ideally placed in view of the Garnier Opera, right by the Metro. The Cafe de la Paix in the hotel was lovely, with great service and an almost Michelin star quality. The lounge was very large, with a large skylight and elegant seating areas. The Concierge was superb.

Shopping at the adjacent Galleries Lafayette, easy Metro location and other close by attractions made this hotel ideal, though the normal prices would have made us look elsewhere.

Intercontinental Paris -Le Grand

Our trip was very nice. The Paris Le Grande was a very nice place to stay. Very friendly and comfortable. With plenty of help from the concierges. Quite expensive though. They absolutely charge for everything. Beware of the mini bar in your room. We found that the local restaurants in the area were just fine and reasonable. Our roundtrip from the airport to hotel via taxi was good. Use the tour bus to cut down on your walking. The tours that the Hotel offered through the local tour agency were really nice.The booking through [...] had a couple of glitches but worked out o.k. in the end. All in all it was a nice trip. International security is a nightmare and my luggage was delayed. Make sure you put your name and address in your luggage also.
