Our son with allergies to milk, egg,
peanut, and tree nuts was NOT here
with us.

This review shared by Ann.
Room 404 was clean and came with a
mini bar refrigerator.   Photos of its
content are on
Facebook.  Upon
entering the room, I detected a slight
scent of perfume so I opened the
window overlooking la rue de
Courcelles.  There was much traffic
noise and voices below, so I found it
quieter to close the window at night.

I spoke with Anne-France  Idoux, the
Guest Relations Assistant Manager.  
She said they would be willing to
empty the mini bar refrigerator so that
a guest with food allergies could use
it to cool groceries.  She was ready to
send someone to do it that very
moment!  She told me the hotel has a
microwave which can be reserved for
use in a guest room.  She said it is
wise to reserve the microwave at
least one week in advance.  If you
give her that much notice, she is
willing to purchase an additional
microwave for a guest with food
allergies if necessary.  She said a
guest with food allergies also has the
option to purchase a microwave and
bring it into the room as long as they
notify the hotel that they are doing so.  
She suggested that DARTY on Avenue
des Ternes would sell microwaves.

Anne can be reached at
guestrelations.adt@hilton.com or
annefrance.idoux@hilton.com.

I was told by the front desk attendant
that the feather-like comforter and
feather-like pillows were not real
feathers and were hypo-allergenic.

The mini bar was stocked with Coke,
Heineken, Evian water, wine, alcohol,
Pringles, mixed nuts, and chocolate
bars including Kit Kat and Toberlone.

The complimentary bath products
were by Crabtree & Evelyn.  The hand
soap included Shea Butter.  The body
conditioner might contain milk.  It read
“lait relaxant pour le corps”.  Lait
means milk in French.  I am not sure of
the ingredients of the shampoo or
conditioner. See photos of
ingredients to bath products on
Facebook.  I was not able to photo the
ingredients on the soap label.

Our son with food allergies to milk,
egg, peanut, and tree nuts was NOT
here with us.

This review shared by Ann.
I first spoke with the restaurant
manager who deferred me to another
restaurant employee who spoke
better English.  This man said he
reports to the General Manager of the
hotel even though he works in the
restaurant.  He said their chefs can
handle food allergies.  He advised that
the food allergic patron should
discuss food allergies with the waiter.  
He told me that my son needs to clarify
that no milk also means no butter, no
yogurt, no cheese, etc.

Translated chef cards seem
necessary.  I find it very difficult to
discuss food allergies even though I
speak French “un peu” (a little).  I do
not feel totally comfortable that we
adequately communicated cross-
contamination even though the
gentleman seemed to communicate
that the chefs can cook for our son.  
The food allergy message could be
easily miss communicated from the
wait person to the chef without chef
cards.

This place is near Sacre Coeur in

I was able to quickly identify some
bread, ham slices and chicken slices
that seem like they would be safe for
our son.

here with us.

This review shared by Ann.
After breakfast, I spoke with the
restaurant manager.  She told me that
the chefs could cook for someone
with food allergies from the lunch or
dinner menus using the a la carte
items.  The breakfast buffet and
breakfast menu was not appropriate
for someone allergic to milk, and egg.  
It included yogurt, chopped fruit
(watermelon, honey dew melon,
pineapple, orange, etc.), pancakes,
waffles, French toast eggs, croissants,
breads, toast, pastries, crepes, deli
meat, (ham, salami, etc)  cheese and
cereals.

Our son with food allergies to milk,
egg, peanut and tree nuts was NOT
here with us.

This review shared by Ann.  
This was my favorite restaurant this
particular trip to Paris. The menu did
not seem to be overrun with dairy
and/or nut items, although there were
some.  I had a steak with vegetables
and my companion had shrimp with
avocado.   The steak was served with
a large chunk of butter on top.  After
dinner, I spoke with two members of
the wait staff.  Our particular waiter
did not speak English very well, so
after some persisting he included
another member of the wait staff to
speak with me.  She spoke some
English, yet was not fluent.  She
seemed very bright and indicated that
she understood food allergies right
away.  She was comfortable that the
chef would be able to cook for my son.

Translated chef cards seem
necessary.  I found it very difficult to
discuss food allergies even though I
speak French “un peu”. I do not feel
totally comfortable that we adequately
communicated cross-contamination
even though the wait person
communicated that the chef knows
how to cook for food allergies.  The
food allergy message could be easily
miss communicated from the wait
person to the chef without allergy
translation cards.

Valois is open for lunch and dinner.  
Their card says closed on Sundays.  
We ate there on a Saturday night.  It is
easy walking distance from the Hilton
Arc de Triomphe.

This review shared by Ann.
Our waiter did not speak much
English, so he deferred me to one of
his colleagues to discuss food
allergies.  The other waiter spoke
some English but was not fluent.  He
said they vapeur the vegetables so
they should be safe.  They vapeur the
fish (salmon and laut?) so it should be
safe. Salad is available, but they do
not have any potatoes that do not
contain dairy.  He also involved the
bartender, who I suspect is the
manager, in the conversation.

After dinner, I spoke to our waiter
regarding food allergies.  At first, he
did not understand what I was trying
to ask him.  When I showed him the
words “food allergies” in writing he
seemed to understand.  He told me
the chef could cook plain meat,
chicken or fish without sauce for my
son.  He told me that my son would be
able to eat the plain rice, but not the
spinach because the spinach is
prepared with a peanut sauce.

Although dinner seemed fine, I was
turned off by the insect crawling on
the radiator near our table.  The
couple next to us claimed they were in
the restaurant business and thought it
was a roach.  They laughed about it
even though it was equally close to
their table.  He said it didn’t surprise
him in a 400 year old building.

This place is near Arc de Triomphe on
