Le Meurice Hotel in Paris is nicknamed “The Hotel Of Kings,” and appropriately so. This 5-star luxury resort is located on the Rue de la Rivoli, a popular address and starting point to explore the city.
Originally built in the 18th-century and since relocated and remodeled, Le Meurice Hotel still embodies the 18th century charm and sophistication that it extolled when it first opened. Opulent decor and grand spaces make this hotel luxe, but not stuffy. It’s no wonder that aristocrats, famous artists, celebrities and Parisian nobility have stayed at this palace hotel over the years.
The 160 guest rooms and suites have character to spare, and no one will complain about the marble bathrooms, sumptuous textiles, gold plated accent pieces and exquisite views.
Designer Philippe Starck wanted to created an enchanting environment that wakes people up. He achieved this by implementing elements that are beautiful, but are not exactly what they seem. Take, for example, a wall that turns to ice each night, allowing guests to leave behind words or doodles written in the condensation that forms.
The service level at Le Meurice is also nearly unparalleled, with staff on hand to do everything from pamper you at the spa to walk your dog.
Staying at Le Meurice is truly an experience not to be missed if you’re in Paris and your wallet can handle the burden of one night’s stay.
