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.

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.

Tour De France Le Grande

Excellent Friendly Service and Information. Clean room, twice per day. Fantastic Paris location. Good Tours. Four minus items: 1. One of the two phones had to be repaired. 2. lowest/warmest setting on the AC was too cold. 3. One wake up call never happened, so I missed a wine country tour. 4. Glass door on the tub/shower was short making it hard to take a shower without getting the floor all wet.

Beautiful historic Parisienne hotel

Lovely old hotel well located near galleries lafayette and printemps and opera house. Easy walk to most places, lovely vibe and great restaurants and shopping nearby. But this is a pricey hotel and the room service and restaurant are very expensive. However this is offset by the ambience and the rooms are a good size and the staff are friendly and helpful. Our first room was very small and had a view of the air onditioning but we got upgraded and the next room was lovely albeit still internal view! I would stay there again. Concierge and reception very helpful and good position.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Walk the Eiffel tower as you still get the lift up to the top level and the lines for the lift are crazy. If you go to Versailles rent bikes at the bottom of the garden and ride around to see all of the other villas at the bottom of the garden. Buy your tickets to the louvre from the machines under the pyramid inside - barely any lines compared to outside.
