Grand, illustrious and luxuriously cozy, this hotel is one of the finest in Europe.
A member of the prestigious Dorchester group, Le Meurice is one of Europe’s most highly regarded hotels. Since opening its doors in 1835, this impressive property has undergone various transformations, but all have remained loyal to its original grace, beauty and regal stature. In addition to a superb location, facing the Tuileries Gardens between the Place de la Concorde and the Grand Louvre, the hotel features 160 soundproof guest rooms and 45 suites.
In spring 2017, Le Meurice revealed their latest suite, the Pompadour Suite (featured in the main photo above). Named after the Marquise de Pompadour, the long-standing mistress of King Louis XV, the renovated space combines modern luxury with the grandeur of 18th century style.
Among other enviable room choices is the expansive top-floor Belle Etoile Royal Suite, whose terrace overlooks all of Paris. French designer Charles Jouffre has paired 18th-century style (his favorite) with a contemporary palette to infuse each room with light.
Public spaces and restaurants were styled by designer extraordinaire, Philippe Starck, and the hotel's fine dining experiences are under the acclaimed helm of chef Alain Ducasse. At the heart of the hotel, Restaurant Le Dali is reminiscent of works by the great painter who often stayed there. This venue provides a variety of delicacies throughout the day. The more formal Restaurant Le Meurice serves creative French fare in an elegant space. Relaxation presents itself in the form of Spa Valmont for Le Meurice, where the exclusive Swiss brand offers its devotees refinement, high-end cosmetic care and exclusive anti-aging treatments. The three reception and conference rooms are exquisite, and include the romantic Salon Pompadour. For kids, the hotel goes all out with treasure hunts, "passports" for city exploring, child-friendly menus and special Family Day spa programs.
