Here are some of our favorite Parisian Hotel
Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris
Rooms designed by Pierre-Yves Rochon are illuminated by chandeliers and have classic French furniture, rich fabrics, and reproductions of Renaissance art. Floral arrangements throughout are works of genius.
Everything that has made the Plaza Athénée one of the world’s most distinguished hotels is still there, from the red window awnings and matching flowers blooming on its Art Nouveau balconies to the sumptuous fabrics and period French furnishings (not to mention unparalleled views of the Eiffel Tower).
Staying at this seven-story 1835 landmark is like sliding into a comfortable smoking jacket—a perfect fit. On the rue de Rivoli between the Louvre and the Place de la Concorde, it’s in the best location in all of Paris, especially for museum lovers.
The Peninsula Paris
It took Peninsula more than four years to resuscitate the circa 1908 Hotel Majestic (where George Gershwin penned parts of An American in Paris in 1928), marshaling some of France’s most venerated artisans to restore original marble, giltwork, and mosaics in the grand public spaces. Behind the meticulous craftsmanship lies 21st-century technology that made the 200-room Peninsula Paris one of the most highly anticipated hotel openings of 2015.
Near the Trocadero in the buttoned-up sixteenth arrondissement, the Shangri-La occupies an elegant 1896 limestone mansion. Originally built as the residence of Roland Bonaparte (grand-nephew of the emperor), its public rooms retain regal grandeur—sky-high ceilings, ormolu and wedding cake moldings—that define Paris’s "palace" hotels. The Shangri-La scrupulously follows all of the codes of the Grand Hotel Experience, from the liveried doormen to the firmament of crystal chandeliers.
