Been off this site for awhile but found it to be very helpful. Last year when I was deciding between Marriott C-E and Ren Vendome for our anniversary trip I let hubby decide and we chose Marriott C-E. It was nice although loud, a lot of activity and until I got an upgrade to a junior suite the "deluxe" C-E view room was tiny and underwhelming.
We are going back in June and I decided to stay this time at the Renaissance Vendome. I have booked us in a junior suite because I don't want to try to play the "upgrade" game during peak season. I have emailed the hotel several times requesting at least an upgrade to the junior suite with a terrace so hopefully will get that but have yet to get a response. If anyone has any direct contact with people from the hotel they can pass along that would be fantastic.
Also I read on TA that platinum members don't get breakfast here anymore? Can someone confirm with me if that is true? I really hope not. If that's the case we may have to go back to the C-E but I'd rather not. Any help here is very much appreciated!
