This regal 1928 Art Deco charmer has long been a standard-setter in the hospitality universe—discreet but flawless service surfaces in a myriad forms, from the robes for your pint-size companions to the doormen, ready with an umbrella at a moment’s notice. But that’ll likely all be upstaged by the dazzling property itself, where public spaces, clad in Norwegian wood paneling and 17th-century objects d’art, are enchanting previews for what the 244 champagne-colored guest rooms (designed by Pierre Yves Rochon), luxurious twists on Parisian apartments, offer: even the smallest are a generous 400-square-feet, with period-style desks, king-size beds, deep soaking tubs, and luscious French fabrics. If you’re here on a shopping spree, spring for a suite with a walk-in closet. It’s only fitting that the hotel also houses Europe’s only three Michelin-starred restaurant, Le Cinq (expect avant-garde versions of classics, like a deconstructed onion soup), set in a 19th-century winter garden, though it’s La Galerie, flanked by Flemish fabrics—in the summer, it extends to the charming marble courtyard—the hotel’s piano lounge, that really buzzes.
In the Area
The 8th arrondissement is inarguably Paris’s chicest district, best known for the city’s most famous boulevard, the Champs-Élysées—one-third of the famed Golden Triangle, which includes the couture emporiums of Avenue Montaigne and Avenue George V. Drop by one of the world’s most famous perfumeries, Guerlain, which stocks over 300 intoxicating scents. Also in the tony neighborhood: Parc Monceau, a former royal hunting ground turned public garden (a favorite painting spot for Monet) with its Chopin statue and tranquil green pockets. The Chaillot museums, a collection of four art institutions, including Palais de Tokyo and Guimet, are also nearby.
