We’re finishing up a five night stay in Paris before heading out to Disneyland Paris for three days. We’ve been staying at a wonderful boutique hotel and wanted to share it with you in case you’re considering a Disneyland Paris trip of your own. Here’s our hotel review of Le Dokhan’s, A Tribute Portfolio Hotel by Marriott.
Located close to the Eiffel Tower and not far from the Arc de Triomphe in the Trocadero neighborhood, this gem of a hotel added so much to our vacation.
The hotel lobby is absolutely beautiful and quiet. We sat by this fire and read a book on multiple occasions.
Pictured above is the breakfast area. A continental breakfast is 20 euros and a full American breakfast is 30 euros. However, we recommend walking across the street to the Ducale Cafe for breakfast. You’ll get a coffee (read espresso drink options) or tea, a glass of juice, and a choice of croissant or baguette with butter and jam for 9 euros.
And, our waitress was fantastic the three mornings we went there. She was kind, spoke to us in English, and helped us find some tourist spots we hadn’t seen yet.
The elevator is it’s own source of joy. It will only fit two people at a time and is lined with what appears to be old Louis Vuitton suitcases on the inside. It’s a fun experience in and of itself.
We loved how beautifully the rooms were decorated. It was just what we had in mind for a French hotel when we saw the pictures and it did not disappoint in person.
The neighborhood equally had a quintessential French feel, including the views around us. Speaking of our neighborhood, there’s a laundromat across the street if you need it and a grocery store just a short walk away.
Of course, if you’re a Disney Parks addict/fanatic/super fan like us, you’ll also want to stop by the Disney Store on the Champs Elysee. There’s also a Disney Store location at the famous Galeries Lafayette, a great mall to visit for the beautiful dome ceiling inside and the great views of Paris from the rooftop terrace.
Staying on Points
The standard cost in Marriott points for a night at Le Dokhan’s is 50,000 points, but it can range between 40,000 and 60,000 depending on the season. We stayed for five nights on points to take advantage of Marriott’s 5th Night Free on points perk (so we only paid for four nights).
But, even if you’re paying cash, Le Dokhan’s is a boutique hotel we highly recommend and one I’m sure we’ll visit again in the future.
