Le Meurice

An elegant suite at Le Meurice in Paris, France
Paris boasts a reputation as a city for lovers, and as such, it sees the continual opening of new romantic hotels. But it's an old favorite that wins our heart when it comes to choosing a honeymoon escape. Since 1835, Le Meurice has served as a timeless example of elegance and grace, and makeovers by Philippe Starck and Charles Jouffre have only enhanced its timeless beauty. Love nests abound in this beloved property — among them, the Prestige Suite showcases Louis XVI style and an enchanting view of the Tuileries Garden, while the Belle Etoile Royal Suite is one of a kind, with a private terrace featuring a 360-degree city view. You and your sweetheart can rendezvous in your room's picturesque claw-foot tub or toast to a long and happy life together with a glass of Champagne over dinner at the legendary Restaurant le Meurice.
