Thanks. I am hoping that the hotel lives up to my lower than usual expectations given the fact it is beyond the peripherique

It's not beyond the Périphérique.

I love the fact you used accents and all. IT IS CLOSE ENOUGH.

I just got this hotel on Priceline for $110 a night. I wish I had used my Hyatt Visa when I was bidding. For four nights, I saved $627 over the current Hyatt non refundable rate. Not the greatest location, but if I present my Gold Passport and Hyatt Visa cards when I check in, perhaps they won't treat my like a stepchild.

You figure it out.

Seriously, am considering staying here again in Dec because the service was awesome. The hotel's hallways are awful as is the bar upstairs, but the suites were lovely.

Just finished four nights here. My thoughts are colored by the fact that I was at the Park Hyatt Vendome for the four nights immediately preceding this and this was a Priceline stay.

At the Park Hyatt, every employee is friendly and greets you with a "bon jour" or "bon soir." At the Hyatt Regency, no one does unless you approach them and then they are friendly.

When you get your keys, you get a little note to the effect that in 2014 and 2015, they will be completely renovating the hotel. I presume this is to get you ready for the fact that this hotel won't be what you expect from a Hyatt.

The room was clean, but very plain and very much in need of updating - on a par with an old Holiday Inn. One thing that annoyed me about the Park Hyatt was that they replaced the soap (both sinks and the tub) every single day - what a waste. At this hotel, there was one bar for the tub and sink combined and was never replaced. Some middle ground might have been nice.

Once nice thing, presumably because of my Gold Passport membership, the first night there was a knock on the door and I received a "present for you" of a large bottle of Evian and a package of mini-muffins that were very tasty. The last evening of my stay, another "present" of a large bottle of Evian and a package of four macarons. Coincidentally, I had just come from Gerard Mulot with a box of their heavenly macarons. I thought it was a great opportunity to compare. The gift macarons were tasteless in comparison. (Not a complaint about the Hyatt, just a comment about how wonderful the Gerard Mulot macarons are.)

The hotel is attached to the Palais des Congres and has a mall on the ground and lower levels, including a high end grocery story, a Paul and an Angelina's. For some reason (perhaps to keep the riff raff out?), they lock the doorway between the hotel and the conference center at about 10:00 p.m., requiring people to go outside and walk around in the dark to get to the hotel entrance. Pretty annoying because you get to and from the Metro and RER stations from the conference center.

As has been indicated above, the public areas are nice and the view from upper floors is great.

All that said, considering I paid $100 a night on Priceline, not a bad place to stay.

Thank you for the review, ILuvParis. I didn't know that there are more than one Angelina's. Are there more than this and the original?
