If you have the opportunity to stay in the Westin Vendome, stay! You will gorgeous rooftop views of the Eiffel Tower, Tuilleries Garden, Place de Concorde, the Louvre. Can't beat the location, easy walk to a ton of spots to visit.Recommended for:

A grand destination! Elegant, fine food, luxurious rooms. I especially love the breakfast, healthy and delicious. A very accommodating hotel, they strive for guests comfort. Centrally located. A beautiful place to come for the night to!Recommended for:

Couldn't agree more with Melinda. This hotel doesn't feel "truly" French. It's spacious, which is good for families. But the food and drinks are overpriced, and asking guests to pay for Internet is insulting when you can get it for free at hotels 1/3 the price.Recommended for:

This is somewhere between a 3 and 4 star hotel for me. It's lovely, but EXPENSIVE (even when you're using points), and I didn't find the service very impressive. We had a 1 year old with us when we stayed and they brought a mesh strangulation vessel as the first option for him to sleep in. I had to pitch a fit to get them to bring us a pack-n-play.
That said, it's a centrally located grand old hotel, and they weren't 1/2 as terrible as the French can be when they feel like it. (Stayed in 2006.)
2010 UPDATE: They've redone the rooms to look like EVERY other American chain hotel (lots of beige). Boo. And, of course, there are Americans EVERYWHERE. WiFi was only in the lobby and 39EUR/day, internet in the rooms was 29EUR day, but you had to use a cable (?). Basic room service breakfast: 44EUR. Standard room was even smaller than I remembered when I wrote my first review.
All of that said, the hotel is SO well located, with a play structure for the kids RIGHT across the street in the Tuilleries and the Louvre a VERY short walk up the street. The plethora of Americans means that everyone speaks English, and they attempt to be nice and accommodating.
As soon as you leave the hotel, there are LOADS of cheap places to eat/drink and get everything you need, so unless you're stuck in the room for some reason, there's no reason to rely on the hotel for eats/drinks. (Although the bar has excellent free bar snacks, so it's worth a drink or two just to score some nibbles.)
Between the first and second review, I downgraded this from 4 stars to 3, but I still think it's a 3.5.Recommended for:

Grand Grand Grand! Westin Paris has the old school grandeur with its center courts and marble columns. The location is wonderful just steps from the Louvre, metro, shopping, and other attractions. The price is reflected on this premium BUT I would point to this as still a really good value because of its location, service, and starwood heavenly bed features.

Great hotel in an excellent location easy walk to Louvre and walkable to Eiffel and Notre Dame. Wonderful lobby restaurant in open space and very good service from concierge throughout stay.

Nice property...somewhat sketchy service (it was busy fashion week so I'll see next time). Rooms was Deluxe...comfort OK but room was tired...paint pealing in the bathroom for example...Check out was a nightmare...Altogether OK hotel, don't know about "deluxe" rating for the property...Go during slow times if you want extras!
