Top 10 Hip Hotels in Paris
Shangri-La Hotel, Paris
This historic, former private residence welcomes guests with haute style and Eiffel Tower views.
When it comes to 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 building's 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. They offer a minimum of 500 square feet, with many featuring views of the Eiffel Tower, Basilica of Sacré Coeur or Notre Dame Cathedral. For a treat, book a room in the Garden Wing, overlooking the landscaped inner courtyard garden.
A spa program offers pampering without having to leave the comfort of your room, though you'd do well to visit CHI, The Spa for unparalleled indulgence. Located in what were once stables belonging to the prince, this facility has treatment rooms, an elegant fitness center, a beauty salon and a stunning indoor pool.
Executive chef Christophe Moret oversees three excellent restaurants. L'Abeille serves fine French cuisine in a genteel setting adjacent to the gardens; La Bauhinia offers French dishes with Asian influences beneath a gorgeous glass cupola; and Shang Palace showcases Chinese culinary traditions in a subdued main dining area and private dining room. For signature cocktails, guests gather in Le Bar Botaniste, which features authentic absinthe fountains.
Two-thirds of the hotel's meeting and event spaces are registered as French Historical Monuments, and they include the Grand Salon and the naturally lit Salon Roland Bonaparte. Despite their authentic historic character, they are equipped with all the modern technology required for effective business gatherings.
