This Louis XVI–style hotel is the pinnacle of Paris hospitality, with views of the Eiffel Tower, top-hatted doormen, and the kind of services that go above and beyond, all the way to walking and babysitting your dog. Rooms are spacious, especially considering the prime real estate the hotel occupies, and are kitted out with regal period-style furniture and pastel silks as well as massive walk-in closets—the oversized marble bathrooms in particular are fit for a king. Other major draws include Spa Valmont, which offers Swiss treatments from customized facials to massages, and the two-Michelin-starred Alain Ducasse restaurant currently helmed by Jocelyn Herland. Its very specific décor style, inspired by the Salon de la Paix at the Château de Versailles but filled with white Eero Saarinen “tulip” chairs, exemplifies what the hotel does so well: old-school glamour with playful modern touches. Don’t leave without signing your name in the frosted mirror at the hotel’s entrance.
In the Area
Le Meurice might just have the best location of any hotel in the city, right on the the rue de Rivoli in between the Place de la Concorde and the Louvre. For easy access to other parts of Paris, there are two Metro stops within blocks. Shoppers can empty their wallets on the nearby rue St-Honoré (and earn their money back in the financial district, also within walking distance). Walk through the Tuileries and over the Seine to reach the Musée d’Orsay, home to the world’s largest collection of impressionist and post-impressionist masterpieces. For more modern art, stop at the Centre Pompidou, a walk of less than 30 minutes. For a dinner with a particularly Parisian quality, try the quirky Très Honoré, which has terrace seating for good weather and a cozy dining room for bad; afterwards, head down to the retro bar in the basement for a digestif.
How to Get There
My husband and I recently stayed at Le Meurice for one week and having nothing but praises for this place! Absolutely impeccable! A must stay!
The rooms are VERY spacious, well equipped and have gorgeous furnishings inside. The breakfast every morning was out of this world, a must try! They were even so kind as to bring us room service our first day since we overslept and missed the timing for breakfast!
The interior decor of the hotel is just fabulous! The staff is what truly did it for us, I have always stayed at the Four Seasons for vacation thus came with Hugh expectations. The staff at Le Meurice has out done any service we have ever received. They were incredibly kind, warm and knowledgeable. They called our room to simply check in with us several times and were very attentive. Again, the service is just out standing. Some of the other 5 star hotels have a very commercial feel but this place really made us feel warm and at home for the week. You can’t go wrong for staying here.
We had drinks at the bar and dinner at Dalí which was also superb.
We are already trying to plan our next trip back to Le Meurice. Thank you for making our week off so worth it!
I really love it..
I love the room,the service,food,atmosphere,decoration i even love how friendly and helpful is the staff👌🏻 the reception,concierge,waiters..every body was amazing.
I really recommend it to everyone
Not the type who stays in hotels overall, this was a rare treat as a friend of mine was staying here on business. From the moment I entered the hotel I felt the hushed, discrete elegance. Though I visited many first class hotels just out of curiosity this was a step up. Loved the bathroom, so spacious, separate shower and tub, his and her sink. Lush robes, towels, all the amenities one would expect but just a tad better. And just the cutest little computer/printer room.
This is an elegant 5 star hotel in a great location in Paris the staff are very attentive and passionate about what they do .
There is a fantastic bar very cosy and the room we had was perfect with all amenities we required .
This iconic hotel certainly lives up to its reputation. The interiors are plush and sumptuous, the suite large and atmospheric, the location unbeatable, and the cuisine superb. But where Le Meurice really soars well above and beyond many other star hotels is its sterling service. The staff are all courteous, helpful and efficient; we were visiting with our nine year old daughter and mentioned casually during check-in that we were in Paris to see Swan Lake at Opera Bastille in the evening: an hour later, our little one had a little hand-written, personally-addressed welcome note with a mini encyclopaedia on Ballet all gift-wrapped with a fluffy teddy waiting for her in the room! Now that is what I call the epitome of service. The room service, the experience in the bar, at the Dali restaurant and at breakfast (under the most gorgeous jaw-dropping setting in restaurant Le Meurice Alain Ducasse) were all simply outstanding: everywhere, the attention to detail was noteworthy. Even the hotel chauffeur service was exemplary: we were picked up at 10:45 pm from the Opera in a Merc-Maybach by our chauffeur who constantly texted us to let us know where he was parked conveniently for us, bang in the middle of a busy roundabout (we found him easily).
In summary, a fabulous hotel experience where service is king. And so should it be. I am sold.
