Just off the hyper-sophisticated avenue George V and steps away from the Champs-Élysées, this classy hotel is as refined and elegant as its surroundings, and has a lovely young staff to attend to your (almost) every need. The spacious rooms have exceptionally high ceilings (except for those on the sixth floor), tall windows, and a subtly modern decor. The white walls have kept their 19th-century trimmings, while the curtains, bedsteads, and covers are all rich fabrics in subtle shades of grey, purple or green. Rooms on the second and fifth floor have small balconies. The suites are vast, by Paris standards. Guests have access to the hotel’s new spa and fitness space, as well as its gourmet restaurant, Louis 2.
