Hotel Plaza Athénée – An Haute Couture Destination in ParisSunday 1 October 2017
Founded in 1913, the Hotel Plaza Athénée has always been an Haute Couture destination in Paris. Regarded as one of the best hospitality services in Paris, the Plaza Athénée is the idyllic venue to shop in the renowned avenue Montaigne while enjoying supreme views of the Eiffel Tower. The Hotel is a part of the prestigious Dorchester Collection of hotels.
If it is looking forward a fun winter gliding around the hotel’s ice rink or al fresco summer dining in the charming Court Jardin, the Hôtel Plaza Athénée thinks about every single detail in order to ensure that your trip to one of the fashion capitals of the world is an unforgettable one.
The Hotel has been recently restored and, as a result, it is now comprised of 154 guestrooms and 54 suites, all with a characteristically Louis XVI-inspired decor. The accommodations are reflective of the Parisian glamour and each room features room features bespoke linen, Italian marble bathrooms, antique furnishings, elegant sitting areas and a pillow menu for unequalled comfort.

Le Bar du Plaza Athénée has been lavishly redesigned and is the perfect place to indulge in a cocktail or two. The Hotel also features five stunning restaurants, all of which are overseen by our world-renowned, multiple Michelin-starred Chef, Alain Ducasse. We had the pleasure to visit the Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée – which has won three Michelin-stars – where we were greeted with an impressive combination of exquisite flavours and natural ingredients that resulted in scrumptious and healthy dishes. The restaurant has been newly designed by Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku, featuring a colossal crystal ceiling that leaves guests absolutely flabbergasted, such as us.
The restaurant presents a diverse menu that represents its essence of naturalness, one of the dishes we had the opportunity to joyfully savour was the Gamberoni from San Remo accompanied with avocado grilled on coffee beans, which was a complete out-of-body experience. Logically, the restaurant also has a heavenly wine selection that is overseen by the experienced sommelier, Gérard Margeon.
As if everything we listed to this point wasn’t enough, the hotel also houses the only Dior Institute in Europe where guests can benefit from exclusive spa treatments in an opulent and relaxing ambience.
