We took a quick weekend trip to Paris earlier this month. We flew Air France from Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) (review here) and went over to our hotel after a crowd-free trip through immigration. For this trip, I wanted to try something different. The past two times I have been in Paris, I stayed at the Westin Paris – Vendôme and since I needed Marriott stays and had never heard of the hotel, I decided on the Renaissance Paris Nobel Tour Eiffel Hotel.

Anthony’s Take: The location of the hotel was alright, but other than the Eiffel Tower we had to take Uber rides. The Renaissance Paris Nobel Tour Eiffel Hotel is a smaller hotel with 122 rooms and suites. It doesn’t offer many amenities and the rooms are not set up for guests to be able to control the temperature (the room was burning hot and we could not turn on the air conditioner).

Renaissance Booking


I booked a Eiffel Tower View, Junior Suite, 1 King directly from on a Member Rate Prepay Non-refundable (shown above). If booking the hotel with Bonvoy points, it will cost 55,000-90,000 points per night for a standard room. Rates vary since Marriott eliminated its award buckets.

Transportation to/from the Hotel

We took an Uber Premier from Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) to the Renaissance Paris Nobel Tour Eiffel Hotel. The ride took around 28 minutes to go the 30.6 kilometers and cost around $55. The return trip was a similar cost and time.


The location of this hotel is not the most convenient for sightseeing other than the Eiffel Tower. There was a Starbucks close by, but other than that we took Uber rides everywhere.

We arrived around 10:00 AM. Our suite was ready because I booked the night before to ensure that we would have access to shower and sleep once we arrived (after having been on a transatlantic flight). A few days before arrival, the hotel reached out and tried to downgrade me to a room as there was a technical issue with my suite. I objected and asked them to find me another suite. They found a Family Suite and reserved that for me. I was given breakfast and 1,000 points as a welcome amenity. This Renaissance does not have a lounge and that is why two amenities were provided. We had keys a few moments later and were off to our suite.

There was lots of seating around the lobby.

There were two elevators. Both were fairly slow.

The hallways were rather crowded and dated.

The refrigerator was empty and ready for guest use.

The living room was a bit further inside. It had a desk and chair.

Another welcome amenity was on the desk. It consisted of two bottles of orange soda and some cookies.

A couch, chair, and two tables filled the rest of the room.

The bedroom was off of the living room. It had a king-sized bed that was pretty comfortable.

It also held a chair and flat-screen TV. The entire suite was extremely hot and control of the temperature was limited. We had to open the window to regulate the temperature. This made the room unpleasant and it was hot enough that I would not choose to stay at this hotel again in the winter.

There were two closets here. The first held robes, an iron, and ironing board.

Renaissance Paris Tour Eiffel 21

The second had the blowdryer, slippers, and laundry bag.

Renaissance Paris Tour Eiffel 22

The bathroom door was near the closets. It was rather small with the vanity against the shower. Water pressure and temperature were fine.

Another L’Occitane soap bar was on the counter along with mouthwash.

Renaissance Paris Tour Eiffel 26

Wall-mounted lotion was found here.

Shampoo, body wash, and conditioner were found in large bottles mounted in the shower.

Renaissance Paris Tour Eiffel 23

I was happy that the toilet was not wedged too close to the shower.

As mentioned above, the breakfast for elite members includes the full buffet in the restaurant found on the lobby level. It was your standard breakfast spread with meats, cheeses, fruit, yogurt, bread, pastries, and several hot options. One standout: the mini berry and chocolate muffins. Load up on these as they are amazing.

Public Areas & Amenities

The Renaissance Paris Nobel Tour Eiffel Hotel offers lobby seating, a fitness center, and the restaurant listed above. The fitness center is located one level below the lobby. It’s small with limited options.

Towels were provided.

Overall Impression: The Renaissance Paris Nobel Tour Eiffel Hotel is not in the most convenient location, has limited amenities, and the room was stiflingly hot. I would not return to this hotel unless I had no other option.

Did you approach the hotel about the stifling heat in your room? Given the price they should have been doing whatever was necessary to make things right and you can tell more about a property by how they handle problems than when everything is fine IMO.
