Please note

This thread is dedicated to the report of the experience and not so much about discussions about each individual hotel, which should be done in the hotel. One of the moderators will add the report to the overview in each thread, which is listed in regions.

If you post here as either Rewards Club or Ambassador Member, you post will be moved accordingly without further notice.

Given that this thread has be so many times moved, merged and split in the past, that it was better to start a new one from scratch. I apologies for the inconvenience caused by this decision.

Le Grand Paris

Were you (or for multi-stayers are you generally) happy with the hotel/stay?

Yes, as always

Which room did you book and which upgrade did you receive?

Booked classic shortly after the terrorist attacks, upgraded online at first to Prestige Suite, later as the hotel started to get bookings again it went down to Junior Suite and finally when I arrived the hotel was packed and I ended up in an Exec room with a Eiffel Tower view terrace on the 4th floor. I booked several nights paid and points for NYE. I was given Club access as usual.

How are the rooms?

Exec rooms have lots of space, a separate toilet near the entrance and a large bathroom with tub and shower cabin.

How is the Club lounge?

One of the best with great service, good hot food in the evening so really no need to go out to dinner. Champagne all day and night. They made it extra special for Christmas and NYE.

Did you receive a welcome gift?

A diary, a bottle of Champagne and a fruit bowl. Also some cake on NYE.

How was the minibar?

Excellent as usual. One of the best IC minibars.

What was good and what was bad?

-Good
Well taken care of even when the hotel was full

-Bad
Nothing

Value for € or Priority Club Points?

Yes very much so.

I met an IHG exec who was on holiday and he said that he didn't expect any changes to the RA program and that we were very highly valued within IHG. I hope that is indeed the case!

I am not quite sure that it is such a good idea to separate RA experiences from 2015 (and before).
It makes much more difficult to find former experiences, compare them (en even more true for hotels that are not visited often).

Thank your for your comments and despite I do not want to bring this thread off topic, want to give some explanation.

The thread has that often been copied, moved and posts have been merged in the past, that it is now somehow troublesome to copy posts or move posts again. Quite often after older post have been moved, the first posts with the overview and the general information have been mixed up. It is a database issue of the forum. In so far, it might be true, that it is in the beginning a bit difficult to find older post. To avoid this in the future, I have now built the thread in a way, that this should not happen in the future.

There is a post with direct links to the older threads (http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/25939974-post10.html) and the overview of hotels is already there.

In the last two years or so, I have moved older post to the archive thread.

Thank your for your understanding

Jan

What I have done now is to add the links to the 2015 experiences in the list above. All links are set in a way, that only the post will be opened - as it has been in the past.
