Dear Travel Colleagues;

I am on the road for over 200 nights per year and have stayed in many IHG properties. However, the Le Grand in Paris is an IHG top tier property that is truly world class.

The professionalism of the staff is first rate. They remember frequent guests of the Hotel and anticipate without asking what you might need and how they can help.
My wife had a serious injury during a recent trip and the concierge team and hotel doctor where there for her. They were truly concerned about her and asked me during the last trip (I was alone) how she was getting on.

Regarding the quality of the rooms, the ambassador lounge (and staff) and the public areas in the hotel they are marvelous.

The ground floor restaurant Le Paix is wonderful with a superb raw bar, great wine and cocktail selection and food that is over the top in quality and presentation.

The only issue I have with the hotel (which drive my wife crazy) is that one can cocoon there and be reluctant to leave. I will keep coming back to this hotel for many years.

My congratulations to Mr. Christian the GM on the superb operation of the hotel.

DWM

Room Tip: The inside courtyard rooms are plentiful and quiet

The Intercontinental Paris Lê Grand hotel is extremely comfortable with old world charm. You don't usually test a hotel to stretching point but following an unexpected medical emergency with my elderly mother, staff pulled out all the stops for 36 hours.

On the third night of our stay she had a fall in the bathroom. Three staff appeared to get her off the bathroom floor and clean up and check she was ok. After a second fall (weakness after the first fall) a few hours later they called the ambulance offered to collect prescribed medication from the pharmacy, produced a hotel wheelchair, called eurostar to figure out how to get her home, found a place to rent a wheelchair i could take out of the building to get to eurostar, cancelled that on learning we needed our own wheelchair to ride eurostar, found a place to buy one and ordered it and had it delivered within 3 hours, organised a private nurse to appear for 24 hours (at some cost but brilliant nursing) till we could get to eurostar, paid the nursing company in cash and put the charge on the room bill as the company wouldn't take a credit card on a weekend night and the cash amount was above my daily withdrawal limit, produced custom prescribed food (the most delicious imaginable sautéed vegetables, rice and bananas - really really good for something that sounds so bland - i gobbled up the left overs!), organised taxis to carry people sitting in wheel chairs and asked at every possible moment how my mother was doing. They also have loads of cleverly hidden doors for wheel chair access lifts and ramps

When i was stuck changing the eurostar ticket for a wheelchair one Guy took me up to the business centre to help navigate the french as i knew most of it but didn't want to make a mistake

I can't thank the staff especially Guy, Alizé, Sebastian, Krystana, Maya, Claudine, Maria and Gabrielle too much for all their support (and the chamber maids - im sorry i don't know your names) and I reckon Guy must have spent much of an entire day making endless calls with an ever cheerful disposition full of helpful suggestions to organise things for us. Without their help the nightmare would have been unimaginably worse. And now we are on board eurostar with mum in the procured wheel chair heading back to our own medical system that at least we know how to navigate ready to take that on after a good night sleep thanks to the nursing care organised for our final night in paris (nr night after the accident). We even managed to go for a walk to the tuilleries with the nurse pushing the wheelchair and have a cappuccino in the sun in its park making the most of the final day in paris -not an entirely bad outcome . We got a taxi equipped to carry a wheelchair to meet us at St. Pancras and take us to the hospital A&E in Sussex where she's been for the last 3 weeks. She's finally out of hospital and starting to make a good recovery.

For anyone that gets this far check your travel insurance includes repatriation and if it doesn't change it for one that does. and if you are elderly bite the bullet and pay the excess charge to make sure you are properly covered. Mum just had the blue euro card which doesn't cover repatriation and left us in a real mess if it hadn't been for the hotel's help. I will not let her travel on just that again !

To the manager of the hotel : your staff were absolutely superb

On a normal review note the rooms and beds are every comfortable , the lounge is magnificent, breakfast is a delicious feast and cafe paix has a very good set menu - utterly delicious. If you are tempted by desert you won't regret the mille feiulle

Restaurant recommendations for the first two nights were good as well and the hotel had already phoned round all their favourite restaurants to check what was open in august so as not to recommend anything closed to any guests.

If you go to paris in the near future the current exhibition of cezanne portraits (musee d'orsay - catch my imminent write up on our blog discerningfoodandtravel.com) was fantastic. I think the exhibitor may be heading to london soon to the national portrait gallery so you could also catch it there . Top tips - pre book the 2nd floor restaurant at the d'orsay or the top floor restaurant of the national gallery in london if if goes there for wonderful views and great food for after you've viewed the exhibition.
