I'm sending my wife and sister to Paris for 5 days this summer. Choices are the Place Vendome Ren and the new Ren at the Arc de Triomphe. The Arc Ren is too new so I won't ask about it. The Vendome is an OLD hotel, which usually means EXTRA SMALL rooms. I know its been updated and the location is prime (I love the Rue du Rivoli), but honest appraisal of the room size and accomodation would be appreciated.
