We've been following the extensive rebranding of Accor Hotels' Pullman Hotels over the past year as they re-launched hotels in London and Brisbane to appeal to an upscale business traveler crowd. Now we're looking at the rejuvenation of their hotels in Paris, starting with the Pullman Paris Eiffel Tower which is in the midst of completing head-to-toe renovations.

We were able to peek into two room types--a Superior room and a Deluxe room--as well as take in two different views, a garden view and a view of the Eiffel Tower, from the rooms' respective terraces. (The garden view is actually a rooftop below that will be landscaped with a garden. It was still under construction so no pictures.)

Given that this Pullman is the closest hotel to the Eiffel Tower (like three blocks), the views are of course, spectacular. The hotel also boasts a 10th floor private event space which has also been renovated with a new glass roof, enabling visitors to see the top of the Eiffel Tower.

Take a look at the new rooms in the photo galleries below!

Still under construction

This newly renovated Pullman, like all Pullman Hotels now, embraces the motto of "Work Hard, Play Hard" by giving guests access to great technology, starting with free WiFi throughout the hotel along with a Connectivity Lounge powered by Microsoft and Samsung and giant "smart" TVs in the guest rooms.

Guests can "play hard" by relaxing in stylish and serene spaces designed by Christophe Pillet equipped with Nespresso machines, the memory foam Pullman bed and Roger + Gallet toiletries. We also liked how the rooms had slippers and bathrobes, along with a proper hair dryer instead of one attached to the wall that barely works. Downstairs, guests can continue to "play" by indulging in fine wines from the new Vinoteca By Pullman menu, created by award-winning sommelier Olivier Poussier.

Other nice touches that adhere to the "Bleisure" (Business + leisure) philosophy include the Pullman Welcomers who will check you in via iPad and knowledgeable concierges who can steer you to both tourist spots and your next business meeting.

The Pullman Paris Eiffel Tower still has about two more months of renovations left but some of the new rooms are done now. Just beware that the lobby and the restaurant, along with the meeting rooms, the 10th floor event space and the garden courtyard, won't be open until May. Rates currently start at 230 Euros but will most definitely increase when the nicer weather arrives.
