Hotel de Crillon –
a 5-Star Hotel in Paris

A Paris Insiders Guide Favourite

At the crossroads of history, art and fashion is the Hotel de Crillon Paris. Once a private residence, it is now one of the most famous 5-star luxury hotels in the City of Luxury.

The facade of the hotel, (one of the swankiest in the city) was designed by Jacque Ange Gabriel in 1758 for the Comte de Crillon.

Enter the lobby and you will marvel at the crystal chandeliers, marble moldings, and exquisite staircases.

On the drive from the airport, our taxi driver told us that Hotel de Crillon is the premier address in the city. As we drove up to this incredible five-star hotel we saw that he was absolutely right.


The Crillon is currently closed for renovations and will reopen sometime in 2015. Explore other luxury hotels in Paris »

Poised on Place de la Concorde overseeing the meeting of Rue de Rivoli, Champs-Elysées and Rue Royale, we felt like we were in the most important spot in Paris. When the valets (two, not one) emerged from the majestic door to greet us at the taxi and take our luggage, we knew we were at the right place!

Each room was spacious & decorated in luxurious French antiques, and the service was absolutely top notch.

If you can bear to leave the hotel, take a step outside and you'll find one of the best Metro stations, Concorde, just across the place.

Or you take a stroll in the Tuileries Garden, stop in the Musée de l'Orangerie and view Monet's famous water lily paintings, and then walk on down to the Louvre at the other end of the gardens. It truly is the heart of Paris.

The hotel restaurant is the lauded Les Ambassadeurs, under the direction of super chef Jean-François Piège. With two Michelin stars it is always mentioned as one of the best restaurants in Paris.

All suites are exquisitely furnished with Baccarat chandeliers and Wedgewood finishes. If you're feeling especially flush, book the Marie Antoinette Apartment, where the queen is said to have taken her music lessons. There's a fitness room with personal fitness coaches available, as well as classic French beauty treatments.

If you can tear yourself away from this luxury and go outside, the Hotel de Crillon is steps away from luxe shopping on Champs Elysées and Avenue Montaigne as well cultural destinations like the Palais Garnier, Maxim's Restaurant and the Musée d'Orsay, just across the footbridge from the Tuileries Gardens.
