Renaissance Paris Nobel Tour Eiffel: Still a success

After a long drive from our London hotel, we finally arrived at our temporary home in Paris, before continuing our journey to Boston.

As a reminder, here is the itinerary followed:

Today’s itinerary

Booking

For our long and complex itinerary to Boston, it was a no-brainer: we had to stay at the same property we used going to the opposite direction, essentially for Muffin’s sake: the Renaissance Paris Nobel Tour Eiffel.

Although, this time, the price was not sweet at all: almost double the price paid during the second lockdown, i.e. €360 per night instead of €180 per night.

In addition to our room, I will book a second one for my mother who will come to visit us in Paris before we leave for Boston.

Arrival

We arrived shortly after 4pm at the hotel located on avenue Raymond Poincaré. We were immediately taken in charge by a porter who helped us unload our imposing cargo and store it near the reception desk the time in order to perform check-in formalities.

These formalities will be carried out in a very cordial and professional manner, and for the two rooms booked.

In addition to a small upgrade, I will choose breakfast as an arrival benefit.

The two assigned rooms were adjoining, in a small pavilion at the back of the hotel, quiet. Perfect for Muffin and quite rare to have such an environment in the middle of town.

Room

Our room was located in a pavilion a bit out of the way, behind the hotel’s restaurant terrace.

Access to this pavilion requires the use of the room access card, then by a small staircase to a corridor where the two rooms face each other.

Our room was located on the right side of the stairs.

Facing the entrance is the king size bed, very comfortable and specially decorated for our wedding anniversary which is on the day of our move. On the left, a small closet and on the right, a large dresser on which is affixed the television, then a table with the welcome amenity prepared to our attention.

Finally, the bathroom, spacious, equipped with a large basin, toilet and bathtub.

Everything is comfortable and above all spacious enough to accommodate all our luggage.

Hotel facilities

The hotel is equipped with a fitness room that we will not have the opportunity to visit this time, but of which you will find the photographs in the initial report.

Catering

Unfortunately, the hotel no longer has a restaurant. Its old room is now only used for breakfast, which is served from 6:30 am to 10:30 am during the week.

We will have it the two mornings of our stay.

If the buffet is of average quality, the service leaves a little to be desired.

Service

The service is generally good. The hotel could be 5 stars if it wanted to, and I must admit that the difference is noticeable with the other 5 stars of the chain in Paris, like the Paris Vendôme or the Paris République.

Clearly a notch below.

Departure

The departure formalities will be simple and fast, essential considering the level of stress in which we are!

Bottom line

A very good stay, perfect in our context. However, I am not sure that I will go back there in the immediate future for a leisure stay where I expect a much higher quality of service considering the price paid.
