Bring your best bling to this Parisian landmark, which exudes luxury from every one of its aged but perfectly tended pores. From the distinctive red awnings to the window boxes overflowing with geraniums, the Plaza Athénée leaves no room for doubt: this is the grande dame of the city’s hotel scene. A recent renovation by designer Marie-José Pommereau refreshed the rooms, which have either an Art Deco (the seventh and eight floors) or a Regency look and a flower-tone palette set off by the rich silks and damasks that adorn the windows, chairs, and beds. The Alain Ducasse restaurant, newly redesigned by Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku, is flat-out bonkers: with its glittering silver banquettes, bright white walls and massive crystal-drop chandeliers, it’s what decadent dining might look like on a luxury space station. Le Relais Plaza, meanwhile, is more relaxed with its brasserie menu and regular clientele of business people and diamond-encrusted ladies who lunch. Allow the staff to pamper you silly, with gifts and chauffeured limo rides, before going for a massage at the spa, which is—what else?—Dior.
In the Area
If you’re staying here, money is no object, so wander down the Avenue Montaigne and pick yourself up some fabulous fashion. Armani, Louis Vuitton, Chanel and other similar names are all within steps of the hotel. When you’re tired of shopping, you can stroll over to the Avenue des Champs Élysées, pausing first at the Asian-influenced and très chic Market, a Jean-Georges Vongerichten restaurant, for an elegant brunch of eggs Benedict with pata negra or salmon sashimi. The stunning Grand Palais, one of the city’s most iconic buildings and home to excellent art exhibits and glorious gardens, is a ten-minute walk. Just around the corner from the hotel is La Maison de la Truffe, an elegant brasserie where the menu (and the stock in the adjacent boutique) is dedicated to the truffle.
How to Get There
This hotel is providing good facilities to customers. If you want to stay with family this is the correct choice for your family and all. I made happy to my family to stay here it really awesome i liked too much.Thank you so much for all facilities
My wife were guests here for a week and it was one of the very best hotels we have every stayed. It was elegant, charming, and easy-going at the same time. The staff was wonderful and provided a level of service befitting a hotel that charges a nightly rate that has a comma. Rooms are exquisitely appointed and comfortable. The hotel itself is located right off the Seine and within a 10 minute walk from the Eiffel Tower. We did not have a chance to dine at the Alain Ducasse but hopefully will do so when we visit again. My wife tells me this was her favorite hotel of all time.
This hotel exceeds all expectations for service, food, cleanliness and luxury. The rooms are the quietest and most restful I have stayed in 50 years of hotel travel.. no hall noise through doors, through floors or through windows; effective climate controls, spacious closets, bright white marble bathrooms and the food and service were divine. No detail was overlooked.
Everything perfect from all arrival to checkout.
Whe got there very early and our room, for our look was already available.
The gyn has state of the art equipment and the spa was wonderfull. The cafe at the lobby assures seating for guest at any time, as well as the bar. The caramel finger chocolate is a must.
The suite itself was flawless, modern and classic at the same time. It sure is expensive, but you get what is worth.
Considering this hotel is one of the most elegant hotels in Paris it has a warmth that none of the others have. From the minute you enter the front doors, you feel like your home again.
Enjoy their breakfasts. The decor is worth every penny of the costs.
