When you enter the lobby of a luxurious Palace or a 5-star hotel in Paris you step into a world of exemplary service, impeccably decorated rooms and… well, the lap of luxury! Think of the Hotel de Crillon, Le Bristol, the InterContinental.
The invention of the luxury hotel dates from 1887, when the Hotel du Louvre was the first hotel to receive a luxury 5-star rating.
But it was the hotel created by Cesar Ritz that really defined luxury accommodations and service.
In recent years the French government has begun recognizing the crème de la crème of luxury hotels in France and has created the Palace designation for hotels above five stars. The Bristol and The Crillon were among the first hotels to be awarded this lofty rating.
In fact, one reason The Ritz is closed for renovations until 2014 is that it failed to gain the coveted Palace rating. But, with the massive facelift, we expect it will achieve that ranking when it reopens.
If you're celebrating a special anniversary or a milestone event, luxury hotels in Paris France are a once-in-a-lifetime splurge that will make you feel like royalty. In fact, don't be surprised if you run into royalty or other celebrities during your stay!
Room rates are high, of course, but don't be discouraged by the price of these hotels. Paris luxury hotel deals can be found! Many Paris luxury hotels offer last-minute specials, weekend packages and other promotions.
Most 5-star hotels in Paris are found near Place Vendome or Champs Elysées, the most luxurious parts of Paris.
