The Five Stars Shine Brightly at Hotel Plaza Athénée Paris

The justly-famous luxury hotel Plaza Athénée Paris is one of those places that define Parisian elegance. It's easy to spot the signature red awnings along posh shopping street Avenue Montaigne.

The Plaza Athénée Paris, an 1889 Art Nouveau marvel, has seen more than its fair share of celebrity guests including Jackie Kennedy, Gary Cooper, Josephine Baker, Rudolph Valentino, Maurice Chevalier, Grace Kelly, and even Mata Hari. But you don't have to be a celebrity to relax in the quiet courtyard draped in vines and dotted with red geraniums.

What You Can Expect at the Plaza Athénée

Plaza Athénée was one of the first hotels in Paris to receive the luxury designation, Distinction Palace. This takes it to a level above five-stars and is the highest rating a hotel in France can receive. You can expect the rooms to be to-die-for gorgeous with marble floors, a choice of Louis XVI, Regency or Art Deco styling.

Sometimes it's the little things that set luxury hotels apart. Like a pillow menu from which you can choose osteopathic or synthetic pillows, pillows made from wheat or horse hair, pillows for de-stressing and pillows for beautifying. Hypo-allergenic linens are also available upon request. The hotel is also renowned for its soothing Dior Institute spa.

Rooms either overlook the courtyard with awnings and parasol-shaded tables or overlook Avenue Montaigne with views of the Eiffel Tower. During Paris Fashion Week, the bar at the Athénée becomes the unofficial headquarters for designers and models alike.
