Hotel Balzac Hotel Review: This quietly luxurious establishment near the Place de l’Étoile is frequented by celebrities and jet-setters alike. The huge rooms, 57 of them in all with thirteen suites, were originally decorated by Nina Campbell. A multi-million dollar renovation has introduced neoclassic décor with vibrant and warm color schemes in gold and chocolate, raspberry and plum, and vanilla and turquoise. Lovely furniture, beautiful chintzes and king-size beds in most rooms are complemented by flat-screen TVs, CD and DVD players and Wi-Fi Internet access. All accommodations enjoy superb modern bath facilities with Molton Brown toiletries. There's also butler and limousine service for the asking. The gastronomic restaurant Pierre Gagnaire is housed within the hotel.
