In the center of the most famous and elegant street in the world, stands the Marriott Champs-Élysées. Number 70 Champs-Élysées formerly housed the largest and most luxurious travel-goods store, Louis Vuitton. The posh address of the Marriott Champs-Élysées displays a fascinating mix of both old and new architecture as a quiet oasis, but merely steps away from all of Paris–The City of Lights. Along with architects Bigaux and Koller, Georges Vuitton, son of Louis, built the magnificent structure and opened his store in the building in 1914. Vuitton left the space for its current flagship store down the street in 1954. The property was transformed into a 5-star hotel in 1997 with the help of architect Delaage-Tsaropoulos. After four years of construction and renovation, the Paris Marriott Champs-Élysées opened its doors.
From the street, incoming guests ride the escalator up one story to the lobby level after being greeted by pleasant doormen and security detail. Inside the property, visitors cannot help but notice the historic nature of the hotel with a modern twist. Beautiful crystal chandeliers alongside window iron gates and lanterns give it an old world feel. In the center of the lobby, guests find themselves gazing up seven floors to the ceiling atrium. The elegant lobby level offers two full-service restaurants, lounge, and bar. In the mornings, a guest may enjoy a gourmet coffee drink or a glass of champagne–how French! In true Champs-Élysees fashion, the Marriott has a sidewalk restaurant for shoppers to relax and people-watch while dining on delicious French cuisine.
Upon our arrival, the lobby bustled with guests speaking different languages. The staff was friendly, efficient, and accommodating. Everyone spoke English very well and showed great interest in our plans for Paris and helped in any way possible. We went on a property tour and were able to see several rooms. Each room we saw was clean and comfortable. Our room had an atrium view with a large window with some natural light. Because of the Louis Vuitton history, the rooms included luggage trunk accents to bring the theme full circle. There have been several recent renovations, but the rooms–particularly the bathrooms–seemed somewhat outdated. Relative to the rest of property, the rooms showed the building’s age, but that could be seen as part of the old Parisian charm.
The Marriott Champs-Élysées is a great hotel for families and business travelers alike. During our tour, we viewed some of the amenities including meeting rooms and banquet halls, business center, and fitness center. The property is a popular place for formal and informal “get-togethers” and private events. The fitness center is small, but gets the job done. This magnificent building has been standing on the Champs-Élysées for decades. It’s fascinating to think about all the events that took place outside its front door.
