The Marriott hotel on the Champs-Elysees has been easier to reserve using Marriott Rewards points since Marriott changed the program in January. But it is a small hotel and rooms may not always be available when you want to stay. There are two other hotels worth considering: Renaissance Paris Arc de Triomphe Hotel and Renaissance Paris Hotel Le Parc Trocadero.
The Renaissance by the Arc de Triomphe is a uniquely designed hotel—very contemporary and hip. Recently opened in May, 2009, this hotel is the first in a new concept for Renaissance—hotels uniquely designed with the look and feel of the city it is in. This one represents fashionable and modern France. If you like contemporary, you will love this hotel. Located just a short walk to the Champs-Elysees, it is in an excellent location. Marriott has rated this hotel a Category 8.
The other Renaissance to consider is in the Trocadero district of Paris—a very avant-garde and museum oriented part of Paris. It offers an ideal location between the Champs-Elysees and Eiffel Tower. I liked the more sedate feeling of this district as it was more residential and therefore had fewer tourists. Like most of Paris, there were many unique boutique type shops and restaurants to discover. We had the best French onion soup for lunch at a busy restaurant in the Victor Hugo Square. This hotel is a Category 7. (When we arrived at the hotel, the funeral of the past Mayor of Paris was in progress so I was unable to take pictures.)
If you have your pick of Marriott hotels, I would still choose the Marriott Champs-Elysees Hotel because of its amazing location, elegance and just so you can say “I stayed there”.
