Overview

An antiques-filled palace in the heart of Paris with a swooningly romantic rooftop terrace

The Lowdown

This grand family-run gem was built in 1925 and still maintains an allure that has made it a perpetual VIP magnet. Located two blocks from the Arc de Triomphe, the 83-room palace is filled with Renaissance-style artworks and artifacts from the family’s collections, along with Old World splendor in the form of Oriental rugs, wood paneling, hand-painted tiles, and trompe l’oeil walls. Don’t miss the rooftop garden terrace and restaurant, which offers tasting menus with wine pairings and knockout views.

In the Area

Skip the standard tourist monuments for a taste of contemporary Paris at the intriguing Palais de Tokyo, an “anti-museum” in the 16th arrondissement dedicated to avante garde modern art: there’s also a garden, bookstore and café. Stock up on some of Paris’s hautest labels on ritzy Avenue Montaigne, lined with every big name from Nina Ricci to Gucci, then sip tea and eat eclairs at the old school Café Carette, with its gilded mirrors, classic rattan chairs and superior views of the Eiffel Tower.

Fantastic Hotel

Spent a week there in mid-august with my girlfriend in the Eiffel Tower Suite. Great hotel. The room was fabulous, the view from the terrace looking out over the Eiffel Tower was sublime, and the service and the hotel staff was on-point.

I'd definitely stay here again. A great hotel.

I was there for a drink on the rooftop terrace and it was an incredible experience. The service was excellent and the atmosphere is very nice and intimate. The rooftop has probably the best view in all of Paris, you can see very well the Arc de Triomphe, Eiffel Tower and the Sacre Coeur. Amazing location close to the Champs Élysées. Highly recommend

SCAM, Avoid at all costs

What a massive disappointment. I booked this room to share with my Father solely due to the fact that there was a possibility to have 1 king bed AND 1 twin bed. I would have never stayed at this hotel if this option was not advertised. Tripadvisor does not allow screenshots to be posted for travel photos but in the confirmation from the hotel it CLEARLY states in english that 1 king bed AND 1 twin bed are being offered.

When we got up to the room there was only 1 king bed (2 twin beds pushed together). I informed the employee of the mistake that we did not purchase this room and needed the room with 1 king bed and 1 twin bed. He told me that this was not an option anywhere in the hotel and that there “is confusion”. In the confirmation and terms of purchase it says word for word, “1 king bed and 1 twin bed.” This is a mistake on behalf of the hotel, NOT my understanding of the terms of my purchase. He offered NO apology, NO compensation in any form, and NO solution other than separating the king bed into two twin beds. I am not happy with this proposal because I paid 340 euros for 1 king bed and 1 twin bed. He should offer something to make up for the false advertising on behalf of the hotel.

What a complete waste of 340 euros for such horrible service. A real disappointment for our trip to Paris.
