Silver Le Grand Intercontinental

2 Rue Scribe
Paris 75009
1-40073232websitePrice: Expensive
Area: City Centre

This large, venerable accommodation provides guests with a taste of classic French style and design. A central location to Paris' popular sights and attractions is one of the hotel's prime benefits. We also recommend the property because Le Grand's on-site gym is stocked with top notch exercise equipment.

Rates here are expensive given the hotel's largesse and inherent characteristics as an older property. Some guests have complained about paper-thin internal walls that allow conversations (and other sounds) from adjacent rooms to be easily overheard. Street noise can also be a problem for rooms not overlooking the more placid internal courtyard. Inconsistent service is another reported issue, likely due to the hotel's size. High-speed internet access is available, but the 24Euro fee is highway robbery.

Room d├ęcor is classic French with puffy drapes, patterned wallpaper, and Victorian-ish furnishings. Bedding is superb, the soft pillows, high thread count sheets and cozy duvets certainly encourage restful nights. For those late night cravings, room service is available 24/7.

Intercontinental's gym offers about the same quantity of equipment as Hyatt Vendome, but since the hotel is thrice the size, guests may be forced to compete for equipment use. The machines available are top notch: silver Life Fitness models with wall-mounted television screens for individual use. Only an upright bike is stocked, so those preferring to pedal in a reclined position are out of luck. The treadmill quantity (3) is appropriate, but only one elliptical is insufficient.

Intercontinental's I-Spa is a fantastic respite for a post-workout rub, but again, the pricing may dissuade many.

Weather permitting, joggers should consider an outdoor run along the River Seine.
