Oozing Old World elegance without being fussy, Shangri-La Hotel, Paris is a hotel connoisseur's dream come true in an ideal location just around the corner from the avenues Montaigne and George V. Built in 1896 as the private residence for Napoleon Bonaparte's grandnephew, it underwent a full restoration, including a luscious redesign of its interiors by Pierre-Yves Rochon. Each of the 137 guest rooms and suites is its own oasis, but those we love best have to-die-for views of the Eiffel Tower and the River Seine. Along with a to-be-expected French gourmet restaurant, L'Abeille, the hotel offers La Bauhinia, serving a blend of French and Asian dishes, and the first Shang Palace in Paris, offering a menu of classic Cantonese cuisine.
