You can see most of it in the service section of my review from July last year:

4 night stay in a suite at Hôtel de Crillon, Paris

Regarding housekeeping, I guess the subjective impression I got was they were making mistakes at first and then fixing it instead of getting it right at first. That surprises me.

Another example of service rubbing me the wrong way I didn't put in the review: at breakfast at Brasserie D'Aumont on the last day -- we had cranberry juice with our breakfast the first 3 days. The the 4th morning the server says, "we don't have cranberry juice." We say, "what, we had it previous days?" He says, "well we have it as a bar mixer but it's not included in the American Breakfast juice selection." Okay, yeah, so you're going to argue about cranberry juice not being included when this is a 75 EUR breakfast? It just left a bad taste in my mouth. Maybe this guy was just new or mis-trained.

It wasn't any one mistake but the fact that there were little fumbles repeatedly in multiple areas.

I agree with you on the hard product and location. The Pen product would be best in class in a lot of cities but Crillon is a cut above. You do get more space for your buck at Pen through. Those closets.
