So elegant, so glamourous, so Parisian – Hotel Plaza Athénée. Once upon a time the palace of tomorrow now combining Eighteenth-Century elegance and Art Déco cool, this Belle Epoque hotel may be a classic but it is no museum.
The balconied freestone front is covered in signature red awnings; inside, crimson bouquets enliven nearly every surface. The bar, with a long glowing glass counter meant to resemble an iceberg, is one of the city’s hottest scenes.
The high-ceilinged rooms mix classic marble baths and Regency- and Louis XV-style details with modern touches like remote-controlled air-conditioning and a music library with 5,000 song choices. The room are scented with the unique fragrance of amber. Windows open onto either the avenue Montaigne, lined with magnificent chestnut trees, the peaceful Cour Jardin, the rooftops of Montmartre or even a side view of the Eiffel Tower.
