Highs + Lows

  • The staff is extremely helpful. They were not the least bit phased when asked to print a 50 page document for a meeting that began in ten minutes. Phew!

  • The generously sized rooms. I've stayed in a number of Parisian boutique hotels that were limited in space, to put it lightly. The rooms at Marignan are generously appointed and allow enough space to unpack AND move about freely.

  • My room had a small terrace with a table and chair. With weather nice enough to sit outside and enjoy a morning coffee, this was a serious perk, especially coming from NYC's arctic temps.

  • The bathroom came equipped with toothbrush and toothpaste. Embarrassingly, I'll admit that I've forgotten those staple items a time or two...

  • The lighting in the guestroom was a bit funky. A more dim setting would be nice.
