A Year with Marriott Gold destination: Renaissance Paris Verdome
Aaaah Paris I love you! I could not have made a better choice than the Renaissance Paris Verdome. A fairly small somewhat boutique property located close to the Seine River and many of the tourist destinations are only a short walk.
Upon entrance you are greeted by door man a welcome sight in various metropolitan cities. As you walk through to the front desk you are greeted with classic and modern design of the Renaissance brand. It’s colorful yet not overstated with a perfect blend of sleek and fashionable furnishings.
We were greeted by a lovely young woman who checked us in flawlessly. She provided us a simple upgrade being Marriott Gold members and thanked us. She also provided us with a map of the city, highlighting the popular destinations. She was the consummate host and spoke eloquent English.
The hotel itself only has six floors and we were placed on the 6th floor. The room was classic European which means even with the upgrade it was small. Yet, perfect and simplistic in design.
We had a courtyard style view meaning we were in the inner portion of the hotel with a view overlooking the center lobby area. The windows opened which I am sure in summer is wonderful. In winter though we did not need it.
We received our normal high speed or enhanced wifi with our Marriott Gold.
We also had turned down service in the evening and our lovely caretaker would do this for me.
Breakfast is included here for Gold members and we were presented with choice to enjoy it in the hotel of if you choose not too the points are applied to your account. The choice is standard European with cheeses, meats, yet also bacon, eggs and my favorite the basque inspired tomato dish which I loved but unfortunately I did not get a picture of it.
Every small detail is taken care of if you happen to look around. The small little extra’s are a nice touch and well received by this weary traveler.
All and all this was a fantastic stay and a great property that is located pretty close to the center of everything. Yes you will pay more but you are in the heart of the city. You never need to pay for transit because everything is in walking distance of the hotel. For my Gold viewpoint upgrade, turn down, wifi, breakfast a pretty good option. Especially this time being I used points for both my nights great little perk for the luxury minimalist.
