this was my daughter's first trip to paris and the staff at the intercontinental - le grand made this a very special stay for her. a truly amazing concierge staff, helpful front desk, great bar, and attentive wait staff in the salon.
made dozens of requests to the concierge for information and tickets. all of my emails were answered promptly and the tickets (dali exhibit - george pompidou centre, musee d' orsay, and the louvre) were waiting for us upon arrival. very impressed.
maxene, had chocolates and cookies from fauchon waiting in our suite. my daughter was thrilled.
will definitely stay when i return to paris in february.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DXB58 Excellent from every perspective
This property ranks as one of the top ones I have stayed around the world. I have stayed twice and each time it has excelled in every sense.
The location could not be better as its opposite the Opera and nextto all the major shopping stores, transport, restaurants etc. Check in was warm and as Ambassadors we were warmly welcomed and our status acknowledged as well.
The hotel has an assortment of different types of rooms and the staff would be more than happy to explain them to you.
We had a Junior suite facing the Opera and the view was incredible.
Crisp linens, royal decor, grand furnishings all add to make it an excellent room.
The Club lounge is on the fifth floor and is spread over two floors. The food is placed downstairs while the business center is upstairs along with a coffee machine too.
Breakfast is served in the lounge and has a good assortment of hot and cold items.
All day you will find a display of snacks and desserts along with drinks.
The staff excel in their jobs right from the door man to the front desk staff or club lounge or housekeeping - all are excellent.
I woudl never ever think of stayng anywhere else in Paris.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MoneyChick77 Third Time Staying and Counting..
This was my third trip to Paris- Le Grand and it was just as good as the first two. I appreciated that the front desk acknowledged my Ambassador status and there was a note in my room also recognizing my return to the hotel.
The hotel is beautiful and very centrally located to be able to walk to many of the sites I wanted to see in Paris but not right in the middle of a thousand tourists. Its elegance, beauty and history is hard to beat. I will stay there again when I return to Paris in the late spring . Its not a "bargain" hotel but then everything in Paris is expensive like any major city. The neighborhood is safe and the cafes are always open isf you want a snack or bite to eat in addition to Cafe de Paix.
I like to stay in the same hotels in the cities I frequent- and I most certainly reccomend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RobertB53 A night at the opera
The location of the Grand Hôtel is one of its main features and an important reason for our stay, since we had tickets for the 23 Dec matinée performance of Rossini's La Cenerentola in the Opéra Garnier right next door. But location is only the beginning: the grandeur of the hotel's interior, the excellent rooms and bathrooms, and the delicious food in the bar and in Café de la Paix all add up. Roomservice breakfast deserves a special mention. It is like having a luxury pied à terre in one of the best pasrts of Paris!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Christmas2012 Fantastic Christmas Getaway
Upon our arrival early in the morning after a long flight from the states we were greeted by the front desk manager who showed us the property and made sure we got to our rooms quickly.
Nadim made it a point to check in with us throughout our trip over Christmas, even buying us a glass of wine during our Christmas Day dinner at the hotel's beautiful restaurant.
The trip was memorable and the concierge was patient, kind and so helpful. ! Even finding a perfumery we had seen on the street but could not remember the location.
The rooms that overlook the Eiffel Tower are worth the stay, everyday I would go out to the balcony to take a picture of the streets below or the Eiffel Tower, in the sun, clouds, fog, always beautiful.
The Opera District is a great place to stay, close to restaurants, shopping and the metro.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jmpmp Service, Warmth & Sincerity of Staff
What an absolute gem of a hotel! The welcoming attitude of the staff, especially Gilles and Clement in the Club lounge, made for a truly memorable visit: It was a birthday celebration that I will never forget.
Our suite (an Ambassador upgrade) was beautiful with typical Parisian charm and a view over the Opera. It was also absolutely quiet, making for a restful night sleep. Krumma, Director of Quality, and Vanessa, in Guest Relations, were professional, yet accommodating, and anticipated what we wanted before we could ask. We even had the privilege of meeting the general manager, Mr. Laure, in the club lounge one morning. What a delightful man! Even my husband enjoyed chatting with him about our experience at his hotel compared to some of the other establishments that we have visited (and to which we will never return).
The Intercontinental Paris may be older and may not be as sleek and modern as other hotels in the area, but it has something that most of the others are missing: a caring staff (from housekeepers to managers), a building steeped in history of which the staff is so proud and willing to share with you, and the ability to make you feel a part of the Parisian experience, if only for a short time.

This is the place to stay for all travel in France and a correction to my one star rating. It was clearly a mistake. I tried ammending my rating but don't know how so here is the correct rating. Thank you once again.

Hands down the best InterContinental in Europe! Upon checking in we met with Alex who is a connoseiur when it comes to Customer Service. He made my wife and I feel like there was nothing he wouldn't do for us. Absolute gentlemen and professional. In fact Alex set the pace for our entire stay there. Had I known about Le Grand sooner I would have stayed there throughout my entire stay in Paris.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Taralla Perfect as usual
Ok, I have to be honest. This is our third time at "The Grand". This time when we arrived to our room I was a bit disappointed. But this is really because on the first two times we had been upgraded to either an Opera view or a suite. And that was absolutely fabulous. This last time, we stayed in a regular room. No spectacular view, no extra space. But I have to admit. ALthough not as somptuous as on our first 2 stays, it was perfect. Breakfast is also very good. And once again, the staff is very helpful, kind.

Hadn't been to the Grand in years. Made some last minute plans and ended up calling the Grand for a reservation. Had an excellent person on the phone who got me a lovely room for a great rate. The room was large and luxurious especially for Paris. The staff was helpful and knowledgable. The breakfast was incredible. Forgot how lovely the area surrounding the hotel was. Had a great stay!

Intercontinental Le Grand gave a combination of great location, high class accommodation and outstanding service on a special weekend. While rather (maybe too) expensive, we found an internet deal which made it more affordable. If you have the budget, its a great choice for a Paris stay

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PolarJDT Great Location! Best Concierge Team!
Location: Unbeatable. It is very central. We easily walked to many Parisian landmarks from the hotel. Department stores Lafayette and Printemps are just a few blocks away. So much shopping in the area, from H&M, Zara, GAP, Uniqlo,Mango, Apple store, etc to Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Goyard, Hermes, Patek Philippe, and many many many more!!! Several cafes and restaurants too!!!
Transportation: The best! As many have mentioned, the hotel is an easy 2-3 minute walk from the Roissy bus airport shuttle stop. There are also several metro lines that stop at the Opera station (just outside the hotel). This RER can also be accessed via the Opera station. If you prefer taking taxis,there is a taxi line right outside the hotel too. Extremely convenient.
Breakfast buffet: Very good selection. Noteworty are: delicious breads, lots of fresh fruits, very good coffee, cheeses. The hot dishes were great too!
Room: Beautiful! The bed was comfortable. The room was spacious, by European standards. The bathroom was huge (even by American standards). The water pressure was strong. Cons: Housekeeping forgot to leave some amenities on some days (4 out of 6 days without cotton, swabs, etc). Pillows were way too soft. We liked that there was space in the ref for personal use (some hotels do not allow personal use of the ref, seriously irritating). Wifi wasn't free (as in most big chain hotels).
Lobby: Beautifully grand, with gorgeous furniture and colorful glass ceiling.
CONCIERGE: As an avid traveller, I have many experience with hotel concierges. I must say, the entire Intercon Le Grand team DESERVES AN AWARD! The best, friendliest, most accomodating and knowledgeable team ever! Every single one knew Paris very well. It was obvious that they worked as a team because they consulted one another for better suggestions. They went out of their way to assist us with deliveries I had to send out, delayed deliveries from stores, and reservations. They kept in constant touch, regularly updating the status of requests via email.
I have zero sense of direction, yet they were soooooooo patient with me. There was a point when they gave me 2 maps to explain the orientation of the place, and the best walking route.
I highly recommend this hotel!

I used my ambassador free night benefit and as usual the staff were completely on the ball and knew exactly what to do. On top of that they upgraded me to a very nice executive room.
Thats what I love about this hotel, everybody knows their job and the service is excellent. Good food and luxurious surroundings just add to the greatness of this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Great room but inflexible rules
We stayed here for our 30th anniversary and came back for our 35 th anniversary. We had an Eiffel tower view room that was incredible. The room was very well appointed, very clean and comfortable. Everyone we came in contact with was very profeessional and cheerful. Our only issue was that they were not very flexible when we had to leave early due to a medical emergency at home. When I booked the room it was prepaid (which was the first time I did it that way). I was hoping they would be accommodating to some degree due to the circumstances but they were very firm in their decision. We were going to spend time in another Intercontinental Hotel in San Francisco and they were very accommodating with the same type of booking. It is unfortunate they were that rigid with their rules.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great Hotel and staff
If talking about the "hardware", can easily find other IC better equiped in other corner of the world, but if talking about the "software", it would be much more difficult to find an equivalent.
Staff are really professional and very welcoming. I felt your full hospitality as a Royal Ambassador.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Janine29 The most amazing hotel in Paris
i have stayed at the Le Grand hotel 3 times now and have always had an amazing time. the staff are very friendly and do their upmost to accomodate anything you ask for. my last visit was 17th oct 2012 till 19th oct 2012 as i was treating my brother to a trip to Paris for his birthday. when we arrived i mentioned it was my brothers birthday and the lady booking us in gave us a voucher for two glasses of FREE champayne!! also later that day after me and my brother had been out looking at the sites of Paris we got back to our room and the hotel had only gone and supplied him with a birthday cake!!! present and a lovely card. he was so surprised and really shocked that a hotel would do this for him. AMAZING CUSTOMER SERVICE!
Although the hotel isnt the cheapest in Paris, im lucky enough to stay on my proirity points i collect as i travel alot on business. The cost of breakfast is a little steep at arounf nearly 50 euros each (although its a fab spread) but you can have a lovely breakfast at a few eateries around the hotel and Opera house.
I will always come back and stay at this hotel as its in the most perfect location to all the sites of Paris, its in a lovely part of Paris and for us Ladies VERY VERY close to Galeries Lafayette.
The hotel also sells tickets to the Louvre and i would strongly suggest buying them at the hotel to save waiting in line for about two hours to buy them at the Louve. Also the metro links are just round the corner! Taxis are everywhere also.
I will keep coming back and staying at the Le Grand hotel as in my opinion its the best hotel in Paris.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Rkwed25 Excellent room and spa, but service has failed
Although the hotel has a confortable bed, a helpful service and an excellent spa, our expectation was that everything would be perfect. We have already stayed in hotels with smaller rates and nothing was forgotten. For instance: there was no slippers and tissues in the room and we have to ask them. We have also had to ask to deliver our bags after waiting a couple of time when we arrived.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Claire01 Overall feedback on our stay at Le Grand
We have always enjoyed our stay at Le Grand over the past 10 years or so, but our recent visit was disappointing. On our first day our room had not been cleaned at 4.00 p.m. and we eventually had to ring to ask for the room to be cleaned at 5.00 p.m. We were to be provided with a newspaper each day, but it only arrived about 4 times during our 13 day stay. But the main issue we had was with rodents - we saw mice in the atrium area on a number of occasions, and one of our friends who stayed in Le Grand a few weeks ago saw a rodent in his room. This is not good enough for a 5 star hotel, and spoilt our time in Paris.
