Le Royal Monceau, Raffles Paris

Le Royal Monceau, Raffles Paris has embodied Parisian elegance and glamour since its opening in the late 1920’s. Recently this luxury bolthole underwent an artistic revolution, and has now become a haven for the cultural elite. Curl up in one of the hotel’s 149 historically inspired rooms and suites by night and fuss over the hotel’s numerous renowned pieces of art by day.

Location

Set in the heart of this romantic city, you really have no excuse not to fully immerse yourself in Parisian culture. You’re just moments away from the Arc du Triomphe, and from there you can saunter down the Champs Elysees (labelled ‘the most beautiful avenue in the world’) in your Christian Louboutins. Being in the city centre, arriving at this bolthole isn’t difficult either. Just a simple 45 minute journey will take you to Charles de Gaulle airport and from there you’re away.

Your Room

The hotel rooms and suites, inspired by the 1940’s and 50’s, are drenched in history and provide a narrative of their own that guests are encouraged to discover. All of the artwork, acoustic guitars and unique objects to be found play their part in the room’s unique story. You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to type of suites, but whether it’s the ‘artistic studio room’ made to resemble an artist’s gallery or the ‘Parisian suite’ representative of a Parisian apartment, you’re guaranteed top-notch luxury and style.

Why We Like it

Being in Paris, it would be criminal not to mention the food. In one Michelin star, Il Carppucio it is divine, as is Nobu’s Matsuhisa contemporary vision of Japanese cuisine. However what we just can’t stop thinking about is Le Royal Monceau’s My Blends by Clarins spa.  After a fully customised treatment and complimentary two week supply of product, et voila, you’re ready for your close up.
