I'm heading to Paris in November and am debating between the brand new Renaissance Paris Arc de Triomphe Hotel and the Renaissance Vendome. My wife and I will be staying there for 4 or 5 days and doing so on points. Any suggestions are welcome and I'm specifically interested in any guests at the new Renaissance Paris Arc de Triomphe Hotel.
Have not stayed at the brand new hotel, but have stayed at most other properties in Paris.
Have stayed at the Louve Ren. and will let you know it is very nice. You can walk to most things and public transportation is great there. It is a very comfortable location.
Will also look forward to hearing about the new place!

My wife and I are scheduled to stay the Renaissance ADT in May for 5 nights on points. I looked around at all of the standard rooms, and this location appeared to have the best space for a standard. We always hope for an upgrade as a Platinum member, but we you can never count on anything other than breakfast at the Paris locations (at least from what I have read). It has gotten pretty good reviews according to Trip Advisor compared to many of the other Marriott locations as well. I can let you know after May how it looks, but until then this is the only input I can make.
