Rated 2 out of 5 by orient10 Disappointing
I was highly recommend this hotel before,but not any more. so disappointed about the last experience at 26Jul2014. I arrived little bit early(10:30am)and ask the reception if I can check-in,the young guy answered me with a porker face even I am smiling.after few minutes,he said I need to wait till noon. I'm ok with that,so I just wait at the bar.before 12 o'clock,the apps Starwood software just sent me a signal that's my room is ready,so I went to the front desk for sure. A woman looked aged standing there,and I thought she must better than the young guy,but I was wrong!!! I said"I get the message from ..."she quickly cut my words down,and said "we sent a lot of message! show me your ID!"what?!are you a police?why talk to me like that,can't you at least let me finish my word then ask?Did the hotel knew your front desk treat guest like that?maybe your guys were very busy all days,but a smile won't be too difficult I think.
The other persons still as nice as always( doorman, housekeepers, restaurant waiters...the girls I met when I check-out)

Rated 5 out of 5 Location can't be beat!
We just got back from 5 days at the Westin Paris Vendome, the location, room comfort and staff helpfulness/knowledge was above our expectations. We did not experience one unhappy/unpleasant moment. The hotel is located close to everything, resturants, stores, tour agencies,metro, gardens, Lourve. We used our spg starpoints to purchase our suite and did not have any trouble doing so. We can't be any happier. We had a wondrful time,Thank you SPG , we will be life long members.

My recent trip to Paris was beyond my expectations and for the most part due to the staff at the Weston Vendome hotel. The room was perfect and the service we received was superb. I travel to Paris frequently and this was probably one of the best stays I have had in recent memory. Very professional and courteous from the bellman to the housekeeping staff, to the front desk. I WILL stay here again and would, without a doubt, recommend to all of my friends and business associates to stay at the Weston Vendome. Many thanks to the staff!
My wife insists that I mention how well they treated our 2 pets that accompanied us. I know some will roll their eyes, but it's hard to find hotels that treat travelers with pets this well! The staff at this Westin sets the standard that all hotels should match. Again, Merci Beaucoup.

The hotel was centrally located so it made our week long trip very enjoyable. It was great to have water bottles daily and fruit, wine and cookies upon arrival. The outdoor tea room was very beautiful decorated for Christmas with heaters to keep us very warm. The staff was very helpful with directions and suggestions. We were also able to have a Jet Lag massage at the Sixth Sense. A must. The heavenly beds are truly heavenly. Thanks for a great week in Paris.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Shena The front desk associates
I am not sure if I was not dress appropriately or because I am an American, but the room that I paid for was not given to me. I was told to wait until 2 pm for my room to be ready. But those who came behind me received their rooms with no complications.
My young daughter and I ended up with a very small room with 2 twin beds. When we ordered our room service, the staff brought our dinner on a huge round table where we have to eat on a bed. It was very ridiculous that we were being treated in a way as if we never been in such a 5-star hotel.
I am very disappointed of the entire staff members in this particular hotel. I will not definitely spend my time and money in this Westin again.
I was suppose to receive a free internet service also and I had to pay for it. Plus, our room was very noisy from the sounds of the guests above us.

Rated 1 out of 5 by cgb5 Noisy rooms
Never got a good night sleep. Walls are VERY thin. We were woken up every night at 2am for 2 hours by the couple next door. It sounded like they were in bed with us. Staff told us this is a problem with every room because the hotel is old. Well last trip to Paris we stayed in the Prince and did not have this problem. In fact I have never had this problem. We could hear guests on both sides! Great location, lovely staff. But I would never stay here again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by RR360 Hotel needs a Facelift
Although the hotel is in a very central location in Paris it is in need of a refurbish. The view rooms were tiny and the noise from the street made you feel as if you were sleeping on the street. Paint was chipping off of the walls in the bathrooms and the carpet was in need of replacement which may have contributed to the unpleasent odor present in the rooms. Overall, the experience was far below my expectations and not indicative of Westin renown.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dtl123 Great time for our Family
The Westin Vendome was great. We had our family vacation and could walk everywhere. We were near great restaurants, museums, shopping and monuments. Our longest walk was a couple of miles. The staff was excellent as well. The Concierge staff provided great suggestions and spoke fluent English. As did the rest of the staff. We are definitely coming back!!!

Great service - I arrived hotel at 930am and they did not hv a room, but they promised to text me on my international number when the room is ready, and they did! At 1130, right at the earliest possible time they promised. Very impressive!
Room is beautiful and more spacious than most big city downtown hotels I'd have imagined! Nicely decorated with balconies!
Friendly helpful staff at all encounters! I would love to come back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by STARFLEET Thanksgiving at The Westin Paris-Vendome!
As I write this I am sitting in the Royal Suite, with a stunning living room on the 100% corner, overlooking the Louvre, the Tuilleries Gardens and the (now lit-up) Tour Eiffel.
The incredibly professional management and staff at the Westin-Vendome have seen fit to smile upon our family and present us with the 60th birthday upgrade of a lifetime! With an en-suite bedroom on either side of the amazingly grand and stylishly-funky-formal living room, we have been able to enjoy cocktails-with-a-view every night before taking advantage of the many spectacular restaurants within easy walking distance.
This hotel is so much the winner in so many categories: elegance, service, location and value...this is not the first time I've had the pleasure to stay at the Westin Paris, and there is no question but that it will not be the last!
This is a reason to be thankful!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Travellvr61 Somewhat disappointed
This was our second stay at the hotel. The first was about three years ago and was great.
This time we were disappointed in the condition of the hotel. It seems in need of refurbishment. The condition of the rooms and hallways is not what one would expect of a Westin. The staff was great and very helpful. The welcome was similarly very warm and cordial. The hotel is just getting a little worn and needs updating.

My housekeeper Vida was helpful and kept the room clean and was very friendly.
Breakfast was a pleasant surprise. Great selection of fruit, meats, pastries, super foods, fresh juice and coffee served to order. Staff was always there to help and friendly, even during busy time.
Le First restaurant was excellent and had several set price options and an excellent wine list.
I highly recommend the Westin Vendome!

The Westin Paris Vendome is a beautiful hotel located in the heart of Paris, walking distance to the Louvre, The Eiffel Tower, The Arc de Triumphe and Notre Dame. The facillty is marvelous and we had gorgeous suites on our two reecent stays (September and October 2012). The staff were great in all areas, from Check In to Consierge to Room Service.. We will definitely keep this as our place to stay in Paris!

Rated 3 out of 5 by LFHAK Disappointing Hotel
Have enjoyed Westin Hotels across the globe but this one leaves a lot to be desired. Wonderful location near major attractions. Very disappointing front desk staff. Concierge could be described as surly at best. Our room was located right above the garbage area. We were awakened at 3:00 am every night by garbage trucks, workers yelling at each other and banging doors! Overall an unsatisfactory experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by laforesta80 awesome stay
My family stayed here for 2 nights recently. I reserved with a basic rate and used my free suite night upgrade for both nights, one of the many generous benefits due to Platinum 50 members.
The hotel did not have our original upgraded Prestige suite available when we first arrived around noon. They then upgraded us to a huge Ambassador suite and had it ready for us by 2 in the afternoon. The suite had amazing views of Eiffel Tower and Jardin Des Tuileries. It was simply the best room I have ever stayed within the Star wood brands.
To top it off, we had a sumptuous breakfast for the entire family plus one guest. The staff comped us even though Platinum benefits only entitle 2 guests.
Throughout our stay, the staff had been incredibly friendly and helpful. Their courteous and prompt services really made our Paris trip memorable. We are looking forward to our next trip back already.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyGuests First Visit To Paris--Outstanding Hotel!
This was our first visit to Paris, in May 2012, and we had a magical visit in large part to The Westin Vendome. Our room, a Junior Suite with Eiffel Tower View, was perfect and we spent many hours on our balcony watching over this beautiful city. We are returning this May 2014 and have made reservations at The Westin Vendome for this visit as well, we cannot imagine staying anywhere else. Thank you!

On arrival the bellboys took our bags before we had even exited the car. Later during our stay the bellboy searched for a taxi that would accept credit card for us.
The Westin itself is in the heart of Paris. My wife and I were able to walk to most of the tourist attractions.
The beds are not anything to write home about. They could use some major improvements.
We had room service a few times, and ate at le first once. The food was, ok. Alexia was very attentive to our needs when we did eat in the restaurant.
If I am ever to go back to Paris, the Westin will be visited again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VATraveler17 WoW, Great Service!
EXCEPTIONAL and OUTSTANDING Service from booking the room all the way to check out. The service provided by the [Platinum concierge (brunette young lady) during check in, Camille (one of the restaurant lead attendant at the restaurant), and front desk supervisor ] were exceptional. They were all very attentive, knowledgeable, accommodating. Probably one of the best service I've ever experienced as a Platinum Guest Member. Camille made the surprise birthday event at the restaurant memorable! Thanks Camille for all your help. The view is spectacular if you get the balcony option. Expect the rooms to be a bit smaller compared to most US rooms, but the location of the hotel is probably the best in Paris. The hotel is close to the Louvre, shopping district, and a great park for the kids. The gym is ok, bigger than some of the hotels, spa is a great feature. One of the best place to stay in Paris!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kubla13 Great for English speaking guests
Stayed over Christmas with my wife and son in a junior suite. The hotel staff was very welcoming for a non-French speaking guest.
The junior suite was very large and comfortable.
Location of the hotel could not have been more centrally located to all of the major sites.
Le First also was pricy, but the best food we had in Paris over the week.
Would recommend the hotel to anyone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by travel3049 Average Stay
The hotel is in a perfect location. Walking distance to the the Louvre and many other attractions. The room wasn't bad, but it would have been hard to fit two people in it. There was hardly any walking room around the bed. The bathroom does need to be updated with a fresh coat of paint or wall paper. As a platinum member I was a little disappointed that I wasn't upgraded.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Hass069 This hotel very noisy
This hotel is located in a fantastic spot, but is very noisy. There seems to be little insulation for the walls so you can hear every word spoken in the room next door at 2am.
Also for the price you pay you would expect a better gym.
It is also a big hotel hosting weddings and conferences, just too big and commercial.
Just not what you would expect from a Westin Hotel.

We had a very poor meal in the restaurant. They did not have my wife's menu selection and I ordered the ribeye steak which was exceptionally tough and chewy. The chef came by the table and we informed him and he seemed unconcerned.
You have a beautiful lobby but I don't care for the gray shades over the chandeliers. The look out of place in an otherwise nice lobby.

I was treated to a great stay when I visited Paris on November 15th. After an early arrival the staff was very helpful to get me checked into my room asap and held my bags and gave me excellent tips on sightseeing while they got the room ready. Magnificaent view of downtown Paris from my very affordable rrom. I will most certainly stay here when I come back.

I was very pleased with my last stay everything was as I expected and Management went out of it's way to make sure that I was taken care of. I do have a quick question. I opted out of having the towels/sheets changed out daily but my statement did not reflect the bonus points... will that be added later or should it have been added at the time of check out

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChicagoTrio Perfection in Paris!
The Westin-Vendome Hotel and its incredibly attentive staff made our visit to Paris absolute perfection! Beautifully appointed room (Prestige Suite) was very generous in size and wardrobe/storage space, the decor was elegant and tasteful, and our exposure to the open courtyard made for a quiet, restful atmosphere. And of course the Heavenly beds were the perfect place to end our day and left us energized and rested to begin our very full days of sightseeing/touring! We were traveling with our 13-year granddaughter and the Prestige Sutie provided two full baths and essentially two rooms. Her "roll-away" bed was actually a ful twin Heavenly bed as well! Finally, the concierge staff was so very helpful and fulfilled every request with expertise and their recommendations were right on! The central location to all the "highlights" of Paris was ideal! Thank you Westin-Vendome for making our Paris trip one which we will treasure for a lifetime!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Guaro Great Location / SPG Members worth nothing
The hotel is very nice and very Parisian decor.
You're paying for the location of the hotel.
The regular rooms are very very small, when I open my luggage I could not open the balcony of my room.
I was not offered a better room, nor apologized for not having at that time. Even as I'm a SPG Platinum member.
The team is very helpful and friendly.

I had to extend my stay, our travel agency advised that your hotel was booked. I wne t to the front desk met with the night clerk and advised that I could remain but had to change my room. He provided me with the name of the day manager to verify this. I did and you were able to accomodate me. Our travel agency could not do what your staff did.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PlatFlyer St Augustine stayed here!
It appears St Augustine was the last person to inhabit this cave-like room. Although there are rumors that hobbits lived here, that would be impossible given the cramped quarters and lilliputian sized accomodations. Nice view once you climb over the chair jammed into the window area and try to stick your nose out the secured window opening.
