Overview

Traditional Parisian grande dame where Marie Antoinette, Winston Churchill and Madonna have all spent the night

The Lowdown

The Hôtel de Crillon is Paris at its most majestic, a grande dame hotel that embodies traditional French design with white glove service to match. It’s impossible to ignore the historic feel of the place: one enters through a soaring with caramel-colored marble ceilings, crystal chandeliers, and massive urns of red roses. Everyone from King George V to the Dalai Lama and Madonna has stayed here, and Marie Antoinette took piano lessons in the ballroom that now bears her name. The 147-room Crillon has a certain lived-in feel but, refreshingly, was updated in 2004 from its 18th-century roots with modern amenities like WiFi and flatscreen TVs. Even in Superior Rooms, crystal chandeliers hang from high ceilings, walls are painted soothing shades of Wedgwood blue, stereos are set to classical, and many of the floor-to-ceiling window views are of a manicured courtyard. The hotel’s weekend brunches at Les Ambassadeurs restaurant are a highlight, attracting an international mix of stylish Parisians and hotel guests. While there are many historic sleeps in the City of Light, if you’re looking to explore more of Paris, the Crillon is the perfect place to start.

In the Area

The hotel is just a short walk from many of Paris’s notable landmarks, like the Louvre and Les Tuileries. Fight the lines and order a super-rich cup of hot cocoa at Angelina at 226 rue de Rivoli, equidistant between the hotel and the Louvre. For a heartier meal, secure a reservation at La Société, an art-sprinkled, ultra-chic restaurant designed by Christian Liaigre and tucked away in a 19th-century building at 4 Place Saint-Germain. Afterwards, you’ll find retro tunes, a fashionable crowd, and plenty of cocktails at Le Montana at 28 rue Saint-Benoit. Money still burning a hole in your pocket? Hit the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré to pay homage to the world’s best fashion houses — Dior, Chanel and Hermes, to name a few.

Tea Time/Goûter des Lords: for Afternoon Tea... go elsewhere!
Reviewed 1 day ago

Disappointing experience at great expense: don’t waste your money on terrible service that I wouldn’t even expect at a local café, let alone a 5-star palace hotel.
To celebrate my mother's 75th birthday, I had informed the Crillon in my email reservation of this special occasion. My son, who is 9, accompanied us.
It was raining and so we could not sit in the Jardin d’hiver where afternoon teas are served. Upon arrival, nobody asked to take our coats: we were left to sit with our wet coats and umbrellas on our laps.
I ordered the Goûter des Lords (60€ per person) for my mother and I. For my 9-year-old son however, who eats nothing, I just wanted to buy him a drink or something small so that he could share the moment with us. I was told that I had to buy the 60€ menu for him. The bill therefore came to a total of 180€.
We had 4 minuscule savoury bites, one single pot of very weak tea (the tea leaves of which had been brewed and then removed in the kitchen) and 5 very small sweet tarts and 2 scones.
The worst thing was the fact that the waitress started to progressively clear our table after 40 minutes. She would come and take a plate, then the teaspoons, then the little pots of jam, then the knives: it was as if they needed plates in the kitchen OR that they wanted to get rid of us. I was appalled. It was intrusive, highly unprofessional and impolite. Rarely have I seen such a disrespectful way of serving customers in all my 20 years of living in France.

Amazing Hotel in every possible way. Perfect Location. Staff so friendly & very Helpful. So clean and attention to detail in everything in the hotel. Spa is beautiful and swimming pool is so clean and a really nice place to relax. Have a nice gym with lot's of new equipment. Restaurant food was delicious and well priced.

We loved the hotel, especially the warm and attentive staff.
The only small questionable point and our dinner at the Aumont brewery.
More generosity in the dishes served considering the price would have been appreciated.

It’s simply gorgeous!

{Executive Travel: Dr. Lo’s Pick}
Second and final stop in this quick European trip is Paris and I’m glad to have picked a hotel even marginally better (in my opinion) than the absolutely gorgeous Mandarin Oriental Paris (which I stayed at last month) and the Park Hyatt Vendome (my usual stay). The Hotel de Crillon is monumental and has been renovated and refurbished over the last few years. The result is astonishing from the hardware angle. Aline d’Amman, of the Lebanon- and Paris-based firm Culture in Architecture, wasn’t a boldfaced name in the design world beyond the Middle East. The Crillon project will rightly change that. On top of this, Sonia Cheng (CEO, Rosewood Resorts) has managed to install a six stars service level to the establishment. All in all, this luxury hotel of some 250 years+ history and heritage is a must try in Paris (if you can afford it)...

Wonderful experience, location sublime!

A truly luxurious hotel, all staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast cafe is a must, the wait staff was wonderful as was the food. The location of this hotel could not be better for easy, walkable access to anything you might wish for.
