Hotel Select Saint-Denis Reviews
A distressed selection... Oct 10, 2011
You won’t be seated in the lap of luxury, but Hotel Select satisfies compulsories for folks transiting through St. Denis. I believe it is the closest accommodation to Roland Garros Airport, making it the “selection” for folks in a pinch. Scrambling to find a place to stay at 10PM at night after our other lodging fell through, Hotel Select was suggested by the attendant at the airport information desk.
I give Hotel Select a passing grade, which is saying something because I confess to being prejudiced by sad events beyond the establishment’s control. Obviously in a sour mood over our other plans being scuttled and subsequently discovering our car rental agency had closed darkened our attitude further. The final insult was sticker shock over the cost to hitch a taxi to the hotel – despite being about seven miles from the airport it cost 22 euro! Consider yourself forewarned if you plan to get here without a rental car.
But that said, Hotel Select checked us in quickly and the night clerk even spoke basic English, much to our relief. Credit cards and checks are accepted for payment, reinforcing the convenience factor of this lodging option. The room was compact, but clean and appeared to have the full range of basic accommodations: TV, air conditioning unit, en suite (but really cramped) bathroom and refrigerator. For the price we had no grounds for complaint, though this would not have been a place we chose for pleasure.
Hotel Select apparently maintains a solid reputation with the tourism industry. Not only were they at the top of the list for the information desk at the airport, when I inquired about hotel options in St. Pierre a few days later at a state tourism office, Hotel Select was again the first suggestion. In the lobby I noticed they had a pool and private parking as well, so they seem to have the bases fairly well covered.
