This was our first stay at this small (142 guest rooms and suites), elegant hotel well-situated in the Upper East Side of Manhattan just off Madison Avenue, with ready access to the many fine shops and cultural attractions of that part of Manhattan. Long unassociated with its Paris name-sake, it retains, however, much of the ambiance and charm of the Paris hotel. We stayed five days in a reasonably-priced interior room which was well-furnished and nicely appointed, but with a view from its one window of the brick wall of an adjacent building. (If views are important to you, pay the extra and select a exterior view on an upper floor.) The staff including doormen, reception, concierge and chambermaids were all congenial and professional in performing their functions. The public areas of the hotel looked fresh and were well-maintained, reflecting in part recent renovations. Car valet service was prompt and reasonably priced. We had one dinner at Arabelle, the hotel's main dining room. While the dining room and the adjacent bar were very atractive, the food and service were little better than average - perhaps as a Monday it was an off-night, as it does get a good food rating from Zagat. We look forward to staying at this hotel again and would recommend it without reservation to our friends.
