Holiday Inn - Gare de l'est - Paris

Holiday Inn - Gare de l'est - Paris

What is your Priority Club status?
Platinum Ambassador

Were you (or for multi-stayers are you generally) happy with the hotel/stay?
Yes - although the hotel is nothing exciting, the value for money & upgrade was excellent

Which room did you book and which upgrade did you receive?
Booked standard, got a suite

How are the rooms?
Suite with small living room, separate bed/bathroom. Bit outdated and basic, but does the job.

How is the exec. lounge?
There is no lounge

What was good
Price was excellent for Paris - 90 Euro a night is great value. I had to be near this location, it's not the most exciting part of Paris but it actually has a convenient location as it's on a lot of public transport hubs. Suite upgrade and 600 points was nice. They do a simple breakfast (coffee, juice & croissants) for 6.95 EUR - which is good if you prefer a light breakfast like me.

What was bad?
The hotel is a bit outdated, lobby a bit cramped, has no atmosphere - so not the typical place to stay on a romantic weekend in Paris - but was staying on business, so was perfectly fine. TV had no English channels at all - not even news. Some people might not like this area of Paris.

Value for $ or Priority Club Points? Would you return?
For this price, I'd consider returning - but prefer the CP Republique in Paris.
