Distilling a blend of Old World elegance and modern élan, the Shangri-La is a hotel connoisseur's dream come true. Built in 1896 as the private residence for Napoleon Bonaparte's grandnephew, it underwent a full 21st-century restoration, including a luscious interior redesign by Pierre-Yves Rochon. Each of the 137 guest rooms and suites is its own opulent retreat, but those we love best have to-die-for views of the Eiffel Tower. Along with a French gourmet restaurant, L'Abeille, the hotel offers La Bauhinia, serving a mixture of French and Asian dishes, and the first Shang Palace in Europe, featuring a menu of classic Cantonese cuisine. The hotel sits in an ideal location in the 16th arrondissement, just a short walk from the Seine.
