A historic private residence transformed into a luxury hotel with Eiffel Tower views.
When it comes to new Parisian hotels, the finest cannot help but pay tribute to the city’s rich history, as Shangri-La Hotel, Paris demonstrates. Housed in the 1896 residence once inhabited by Napoleon III’s nephew, this luxury hotel sits adjacent to the Trocadéro and is surrounded by some of Europe’s finest museums. The restoration took place under the direction of architect Richard Martinet, while the interiors were shaped in “Empire style” by interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon. An impressive €3 million was spent on each guest room, and they offer a minimum of 500 square feet, with many featuring views of the Eiffel Tower, Basilica of Sacré Coeur and Notre Dame Cathedral. For a true urban treat, book a room in the Garden Wing, overlooking a landscaped inner courtyard garden. A spa program offers pampering without having to leave the comfort of your room. The fine dining restaurant L'Abeille serves fine French cuisine; La Bauhinia offers French dishes with Asian influences; and Shang Palace showcases Chinese culinary traditions and includes three private dining rooms. A wellness center includes a CARITA beauty treatment center and a stunning indoor pool. Meeting and function spaces incorporate the property’s magnificent ballrooms.
