I used my remaining points for this one night stay in Paris which made the stay affordable. Whilst the price for a nights accommodation is expensive, it is on par for the quality and location and Paris in general. A per previous reviews, the comfort of the beds is excellent as was the cleanliness and the friendliness and attentiveness of the staff. There was a very nice touch on arrival and that was a complimentary coffee. Whilst we were unable to check in early, the staff took our bags and looked after them till we returned later. We didn't take the breakfast option as we considered it a bit too expensive especially since there are nice cases in very close proximity to the hotel. I also don't understand why a cup of coffee in a hotel also costs 6 euros, surely it's still profitable at 3 euros (for guests only) and would make such a nice gesture.
I would definitely recommend this hotel for comfort and location for a short stay in Paris.
In a previous post someone mentioned they were not rewarded for their IHG platinum status, well I'm only Gold and they certainly gave me special treatment so thank you. You made our last night in Europe very memorable after a 3 month holiday.

The location is great. The cost of the room is just not up to par with the quality of the room and service.

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by kchengliew Overall great stay, just some minor repairs needed
Stayed here for 3 days out of a two week work tour of Europe. When I arrived at the hotel, I was thoroughly exhausted by the commute as per the instructions on the website. (Note to anyone reading this: DO NOT take the RER and transfer at Chatelet, FDR etc. especially not with two huge luggage bags and a backpack. You would be an easy target for pick-pockets who make the most of your distraction as I nearly was in FDR. It would be a better bet to take the Air France shuttle though more pricey, but more convenient.)
However, after the chaotic first encounter with Paris, the hotel and their staff made me melt with their thoughtfulness and classy atmosphere. It is not the largest room I've had for such a price, but the service was certainly top-notch. Not only were the receptionists attentive and pleasant, they try to anticipate all your needs, and provide as much as they can. Of course, it doesn't hurt that all of them were also quite good-looking. ;)
Few things of the hotel I must highlight, (1) the complimentary fruit tea that was provided at the minibar was absolutely fabulous, and the biscuit to go with the coffee was also very thoughtful. (2) The bed and comforter were clean and really comfortable. Little pieces of clouds that made me want to stay in all day. (3) The candy corner at the lobby (which I only discovered on my second day) was a nice touch. (4) central location to almost everywhere important in Paris.
Only minuses were minor, and did not put a major damper to my trip. First, there was no gym; second, the breakfast spread was slightly sad-looking compared to what I have been having in London and Brussels for the past week, but at the time I was in the mood for a diet anyway; third, the room I was staying in (103) though nice, needed some real maintenance (e.g. shower bar was hanging on a wire). Lastly, as I was given a room next to the road, and on the first floor, it was a little less conducive for sleep.
One other thing, it would be good if the hotel had name tags to identify staff members, as I wanted to commend (1) the night shift manager/receptionist(?) on the 23rd June for being obliging to a severely jetlagged guest, (2) the restaurant manager during breakfasts who kept making sure she provides you with all you need. Certainly would be my first choice when I stay in Paris.
