The 18th-century palace that houses Hôtel De Crillon in Paris was commissioned by none other than Louis XV. It’s understandable, then, that “opulent” is an understatement for the grand manor, which – since a renovation in 2017 – has truly outdone itself in luxury. The hotel’s location on the north side of Place de la Concorde is near-impossible to beat (the Champs-Élysées is quite literally right around the corner), and rooms boasting views of the Eiffel Tower and Tuileries Garden make the hotel a prime spot for a deeply romantic stay in the City of Light.
Every room in the hotel is decadent – making the ten signature suites (two of which were designed by Karl Lagerfeld) next-level glamorous. You won’t, for a moment, forget that you’re sleeping in a palace in the gorgeous Suite Duc de Crillon which feels fit for royalty, and is positively dripping in gold. Even entry-level rooms delight, feeling so very posh with their Rivolta Carmignani linens, regal furniture and luxurious white marble bathrooms.
Food at the Hotel de Crillon is Parisien gastronomy at its finest, and guests are spoiled with themed buffet brunches, an enchanting pastry boutique called Le Boudoir and the sophisticated L’Ecrin which serves upscale dishes in an intimate, 22-seat dining room. Brasserie d’Aumont is a more relaxed (but still unfailingly stylish) option for something a bit more casual, and the purple-and-pink-hued Jardin D’Hiver is a glamorous spot for the loveliest of afternoon teas.
A jaw-dropping wine collection boasts something to the tune of 40,000 bottles – for a truly memorable meal, book a private dinner among the bottles (wine-paired, of course) in La Cave, the hotel’s cellar.
The hotel is well-equipped to send its guests out into Paris looking their very best. A 24-hour fitness centre and small (but remarkably attractive) swimming pool encourages guests to stay active, while a hair salon, spa and leather-care lounge are onsite for every beauty ritual one might need. Gentlemen needn’t be left out from the pampering – a newly-opened men’s grooming area ensures they too are done up for a night on the town in the fashion capital of the world. Once you’re primed and prepped, head out to the ultra-trendy streets; high-end boutiques are on the hotel’s doorstep with a staggering list of designer stores – it is Paris, after all.
