RHC Hotel Napoleon Paris - Fete d'Amour

J

JoeMid

Well I'm off with DW (no kids) for a long weekend this Thu-Mon to Paris with Air on AA through SkyAuction and lodging at www.hotelnapoleonparis.com through Royal Holiday Club. Of course, no form of 'confirmation' from RHC yet with three days to go but, I emailed the Napoleon directly yesterday and they responded today saying that I was indeed confirmed into a 'Classic' room. This is the lowest category of room at 20sqm or about 14x14ft if I'm doing the math right. It looks very nice but is not what I would call a 'Studio' which is what RHC calls it. Anyway, discounting the neglible purchase price of the RHC contracts, the room is costing me $95/nt based on the number of points required and the MFs that correspond. That's about half the absolute lowest rate for the room (that was never available the several times I checked) and a fifth of the 'published' rate. The hotel is the closest hotel to the Arc de Triomphe. Any TUGgers been to this hotel?

I have read CMF's recent thread www.tugbbs.com/forums/showthread.php?t=16240, are there any other suggestions for activities?

We enjoyed Hotel Napoleon Paris

We stayed there (also thru RHC) in 2000 and while I do not remember the name of the room type or specifics, I can leave you with my general impressions....we thought the Hotel was lovely, small and European in a nice location on rue de friedland, one spoke off l'arch de triomphe. easy access to metro. for our taste, not much really going on in that area of interest once you have walked les champs elysees, where every thing is a little tourist geared, and doesn't feel very french.

Otherwise, I do recall the lobby area feeling dated and somewhat uninspiring, but the staff was lovely and the room was a lovely surprise compared to initial expectation from lobby...very clean, well appointed and fully updated. Whiel small, very cozy and elegant. Love the towel warming racks in euro hotels! Anyway, we would stay there again as an economical choice thru RHC.

I have stayed at RHC other property which is a bit off the beaten path and no comparison...although my friend and I had a blast there, shopping the marches and hanging our with the locals as you wont find alot of tourists in tha area. the other hotel appeals largely to the long term stay business traveler.

anyway, enjoy...it is lovely and easy trip to and from the charles de gaulle.


I do remember how luscious the bed was after fighting the jet lag by heading out to the marches de st ouen and then returning to the room for a little catch-up nap before heading out for a late dinner. sheets were crisp, clean and the bed was quite comfortable...somehow i remember beds and sheets when i travel if nothing else.
