Under the new hotel classification system in France, the Marriott Hotel Champs Elysees and Renaissance Paris Vendome Hotel are two of the first hotels in Paris to achieve the new five-star luxury designation.

 The hotels received the designation last week after a lengthy French Ministry of Tourism audit consisting of 240 criteria related to guest expectations of comfort and hygiene, as well as new aspects such as hotel services, sustainable development and new technologies.

The new classification program replaces the system in force since the 1960s that classified hotels in France from zero to four stars, with luxury hotels receiving the “palace” designation.

“The five-star hotel rating existed everywhere except in France, and this was confusing for international hotel guests used to staying in five-star hotels,” said Hervé Novelli, Secretary of State for Tourism.

 By the end of the year, Mr. Novelli estimated that 100 – 150 hotels will receive the five-star, luxury hotel designation, and the “palace” classification will disappear.
