Paris: Hotel Plaza Athenee

True to its extraordinary city, Hôtel Plaza Athénée is no ordinary hotel. Here, on the prestigious avenue Montaigne, the tree-lined boulevard of French fashion, our hotel proudly offers guests the very best of Paris. I call this "hotel conservative contemporary". Great location, wonderful suites and rooms, excellent service and fine food. This is definitely one of my favorite large city hotels in the world.

On the famous avenue of couture, where a century of designers and artists have pursued boldness and passion, a legendary hotel awaits your arrival. Here, life is to be seized, enjoyed and celebrated.

Within walking distance to everything. Located on one of the best shopping streets in Paris.

Several fabulous restaurants in the hotel. Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athenee.

Here, Alain Ducasse tells a personal and radical story, continuing the work he began twenty-five years ago. He represents the naturalness cuisine, inspired by the fish-vegetables-cereals trilogy, with the help of his chef Romain Meder. Healthier and more natural, more respectful of the Planet, it delivers a free and nearly instinctive interpretation of Haute Cuisine, revealing the produces’ original, from the noble to the humble, all exceptional.

La Cour Jardin au Plaza Athénée, in the hotel as well.

The inner courtyard, La Cour Jardin, is a haven of peace in a busy city. Surrounded on all sides by sweeping curtains of greenery this restaurant is a popular and beautiful summer place to be, serving seasonal dishes from May to September. Be sure to also experience it during the cosy, twinkling wonderland of winter

La Galerie

I spent many hours here watching the fabulous French models. For many Parisians, La Galerie is shorthand for pure pleasure. This determinedly chic space brims with calm elegance, happily passing the day under the gentle melodies of harps and soft conversation. La Galerie is the ideal spot for breakfast, a light lunch, spontaneous pre-dinner drinks or our delicious afternoon tea.

 

Suites and Rooms don't get any better than this. Whether your room is done in classic French or Art Deco style, you'll find comfortably-elegant furnishings, including silk-covered armchairs and cushy beds topped with high-end linens and your choices from the pillow menu. Some rooms have views of a quiet courtyard; others the tree-lined avenue or, in some suites, city landmarks. The six specialty suites are all drama, with splashes of vivid color, and perks like terraces, pianos, wine cellars, or - in the Haute Couture Suite - a door-sized silver picture frame outlining a perfect view of the Eiffel Tower.
