I will be travelling to Paris in April and staying at the above hotel as part of a timeshare arrangement. While I have been to Paris a number of times this will be my first time staying at this hotel and in the suburbs.
Does anyone have any first hand experience staying here and, if so, can you offer any tips as far as local dining and entertainment? Also, I intend to use public transportation to and from the city from this location so any words of advice will also be helpful on this point.
If you could respond directly to my email (email@example.com), it would be most helpful.
Merci en avance and bon voyage a toutes.
I would be interested in this information too. We will be staying there in January.
I'll be staying at the Royal Regency in Vincennes (our timeshare is there). I did a search in the forum and noticed several posts, but no responses. Does anyone have any first hand knowlege of the resort? How close is it to Paris? Can we walk to a Metro station? How is the resort itself? What is the surrounding area like?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
We stayed there last December and it was okay. Nothing spectacular, but the area is safe. There was a really cool outdoor market on the way to the metro one day, but I can't for sure recall which day it was. About a block from the resort (turning right as you walk down the street) are two boulangeries. One is closer, on the left-hand side, and one is a little further down, on the actual corner, and is on your right. Go to the one further down and avoid the one on the left! =)
The metro is a 10-15 minute walk, but there is a bus that will take you to it that leaves just down the street from the resort.
The staff at the resort is very friendly, and they can give you tickets to certain places (i.e. Disneyland) or help you make reservations anywhere you want to go, including the major nightclubs. The rooms are clean, althought the comforters and stuff are a little outdated. The bathrooms, however, are among the biggest in France. They did not have shower curtains, though, in our room. It was just a little (and I mean little) sheet of glass that covered 1/4 of the opening. Also, the shower head was down more, not up spraying water on you. This is typical of France, though, so just be prepared.
All in all, it isn't a bad place to stay. Although you are going to be technically outside of Paris, you won't feel like you are out of the loop.
Also, be careful with the television. . .questionable material popped up during prime time. . .:P Have a good time!
My husband and I will be arriving Paris this coming Sunday. We're planning to take the public transportation from CDG airport to our hotel. However, we're having a hard time finding our ways around. Can anyone help?
We need to get to the following address:
GVC @ Club Royal Regency
69 Rue Defrance
Any information would be greatly appreciated.

wow, you're not in Paris, you're in Vincennes!
Why do you want to stay in Vincennes rather than Paris?
Thanks for the info...
We're staying in Vincennes because we're restricted by our timeshare vacation resort. That's where it's available for November...
Does anyone know how long it takes to get to Paris from Vincennes by riding RER? We looked it up on the map, and it appears to be just about a few miles away from the city...
Also, any suggestions on the guided tour packages or "must visit" places or restaurants?
