So, the positive. The property was nice, clean and quiet with great bakeries and trains nearby. They even offered the entire bridal party umbrellas for the entire wedding day! THANK YOU!
The negative. I ALWAYS put “Do Not Disturb” on my door bc I never want to be disturbed, PERIOD. I even brought my own towels to prevent a disturbance. On the very 1st night of my stay, one of the ladies in our bridal party was violated. Her laptop and jewelry were stolen and the hotel claimed that no one on staff went in her room and stole her belongings. I told her that night, they would never admit it but, they’re not supposed to, right? So, not only was the hotel/management/staff no help but, neither were the police.
2 days after the aforementioned incident, I could clearly hear people in the hall. So I waited in my room bc I wanted to see if they would really not disturb me (sign still on the door). Well, not only did they knock on my door but, they proceeded to come in and wouldn’t leave even after I pointed to the “do not disturb/ne pas déranger“ sign on the door. I KNEW they were going in rooms without permission but, I wanted to witness it with my own eyes in my own room. I immediately went down to speak with someone about it and before I could tell them what happened, they were already aware of it. Their excuse, my husband told them they could go in. NEWS FLASH, I was in my room, ALONE. No husband, no boyfriend, no strange Parisian man. JUST ME! They’re other excuse, there’s a language barrier. The sign clearly says in English AND in French, DO NOT DISTURB! This goes back to my previous hunch. They allow their staff to go into areas they are prohibited from going then, they deny any wrong doings on their part.
I literally slept with one eye opened, packed my bags daily, and set my room up a certain way so that I’d know if someone had touched anything that belonged to me.
That’s no way to feel when you’re in another country or in a local motel.
