Why it’s worth traveling for…
Spanning an entire city block in Paris’ stylish 9th arrondissement, this opulent landmark hotel – facing the legenary Opera Garnier and just steps from The Place Vendôme – is beyond grand. It is show-stopping. Since its inception in 1862, the hotel has been a magnet for the well-heeled including tsars, kings, queens and icons like Marlene Dietrich, Ernest Hemingway, Victor Hugo and Oscar Wilde. Today, following a major renovation by renowned interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon, the hotel’s dreamy and spacious rooms, designed to resemble ultra-chic Parisian apartments, are even more magnifique – many come with iconic views of the opera house and Eiffel tower.
Channel your inner French model with a redo at Balmain Hair Couture for the ultimate ‘catwalk’ look, before heading out to shop at nearby Galeries Lafayette Haussmann department store. Unwind afterward on the hotel’s famed terrace, overlooking the opera house, with a glass of rosé (or French champagne) before heading back to your suite for yet another iconic Parisian view: the Eiffel tower.
