My wife and I stayed at the Meridien Hotel for five nights for the Ironman France event. Location for me was everything and the hotel was perfect for all the pre & post race festivities. The staff was efficient, the room was very nice overlooking the sea and finish line, and the weather was perfect. Those are the positives. I did have a few negative experiences as well. The reservation was incorrectly stating 4 nights instead of 5. Because the reservation was incorrect and I needed to add another night to our stay, they jacked the room rate up on us for the "one additional night!" I was being nickle and dimed (euro'd) for everything. I needed a plate and knife for some cheese, bread, and meat that we bought for a nice dinner on the balcony. I was charged $5 euro for the plate to be delivered to the room. No breakfast included in the daily rate. I did manage to get free internet included in my room rate. "Do Not Disturb" means don't bother me when you come into my room anyways. And here's the kicker of all this.
I hung an American flag from our balcony on race morning. By 10:00 am in the morning someone had gone into our room (with the "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door, cut the flag from it's tie-wraps, and take it. No note, no explanation for the removal of the flag, and taking it until I mentioned it two days later that someone had removed it from our room.
Bottom line is that what we paid did not match the service I would expect and will look for alternative locations on our next visit.
