Paris is a city where you can find best luxury hotels among the best worldwide. The Luxe Insider visited most of Parisian Palaces – the greatest hotel’s rank in France – and we decided to highlight our 3 favorites, which are distinguished by their exceptional level of luxury and high customer attention.
Although there are many top-tier hotels in the city, some people prefer luxury apartments in Paris that put you right in the middle of some of the best neighbourhoods. Websites such as Homelike offer a great selection of fully-functional high-end properties in the French capital. These luxury apartments are carefully styled and decorated to rival expensive hotels in the city.
An outstanding design by Philippe Starck added to a great selection of Art pieces is a good start to define Le Royal Monceau, fully renovated in 2011. Rooms are really stunning, the Spa by Clarins is a must-see with its 28 meters indoor pool and to achieve this introduction I should mention the 2 award-winning restaurants, Il Carpaccio and La Cuisine. For sure you can’t be disappointed staying there, just few steps from the Champs Elysées and the Arc de Triomphe, even if you have very high expectations.
The Shangri-La Paris is the company’s flagship opened in 2010 that combines French architecture to Asian style. With unparalleled view over the Eiffel Tower, it is the best choice for a peaceful retreat in Paris away from noise and touristic avenues. Its weekend brunch is a must-do, before or after a Spa journey ; don’t forget that Asian hotel companies are renowned for their luxury Spa experience and the Shangri-La Paris is definitely one of the best ambassador.
This is the surprise of our Paris best luxury hotels selection, a boutique hotel right located in the middle of Champs-Elysées avenue: the Fouquet’s Barriere. This brand is quite famous in France thanks to its bar where all celebs love to come, however only few people know that it is a true five-star hotel with a Palace rank opened in 2006. It has two main features ; first a unique design by Jacques Garcia and second a large indoor Spa with thermal circuit. Should I mention the outstanding breakfast and the – very – high level of exigency, symbol of the french-based Barriere company ?
