My wife and I are going to London and Paris for the first time this May.  We are looking at staying at the Ren St Pancras Station, Ren Chancery Court, and JW Marriott Grosvenor in London.  Does anyone have any recommendation regarding these three hotels choices?

In Paris, we are planning on using rewards pts to stay, but that means that we can only stay at the Ren La Defense, Courtyard Neuilly, or Marriott Rive Gauche?  All of the other 6 & 7 pt level hotels in downtown Paris don't have rewards stays available.  Does anyone have any recommendations for the best hotels to stay in Paris? Is it worth it to upgrade all the way and pay 40,000 pts a night for the Marriott C-E compared to the three hotels available in Paris?

We don't mind walking a little distance to things, and we value having good restaurants and the major attractions relatively nearby, but we don't care too much about nightlife or shopping.

Thanks in advance.  Cheers,
