As we know, the Maison et Objet Paris is coming up. While we’re arranging our design experience, we get stalled in the same place as everybody else: ‘’Where am I going to stay during the event?’’. Well, that’s not a problem anymore, we got your back. In this article, Best Design Events will give you a list of the best luxury hotels to stay during the Maison et Objet 2018, for you to enjoy the event in the completest way possible.
Le Meurice stands out of its fellow Paris palaces with its prime position on the arcaded Rue de Rivoli, just minutes away from the Louvre. It’s very grand yet not stuffy. Dali used to stay here with his ocelots and that has clearly left a legacy of tolerance for guest’s foibles. There are chandeliers and marble galore but also a frosted mirror in the entrance hall where guests can doodle or sign their autograph. The vast first-floor Presidential suite overlooking the Tuileries is perfect for playing at Marie-Antoinette, while the Belle Etoile penthouse has its own private lift, butler’s pantry and 360° views from its rooftop terrace.
On the avenue between the Arc de Triomphe and Parc Monceau, the Grand Royal Monceau was reborn after a Philippe Starck makeover as a self-proclaimed luxury art hotel, complete with a gallery, an art concierge, a concept store and a cinema. Downstairs works particularly well, with an illuminated cocktail bar and courtyard garden.
When opened by César Ritz in 1898, this was the most innovative hotel in Paris; the first to have lifts, electricity and private bathrooms. While presumably adding vast amounts of hidden cabling and replanting the garden courtyard, the modern hotel has preserved its period furniture and paintings à la Louis XV and kept some of the cult features like the divisive gold swan taps.
This hotel is an escapade into a sybaritic vision of France past with its wedding-cake facade, grand stairway and a string of historic salons, which have been listed and painstakingly restored with hand-gilded panelling and neoclassical friezes. Apart from the modern Penthouse Suite and the Imperial Suite, which has nymphs dancing across the bathroom walls and a butler’s kitchen, the 81 bedrooms and suites are calmly classical, recalling the French grand lifestyle.
Le Bristol is one of the best hotels in town: a long-established and distinguished hotel in one of the city’s most fashionable streets with excellent service. Don’t miss the absolutely top-notch restaurant Epicure, or the exquisite spa and indoor roof-top pool. There are 188 guest rooms, many overlooking the inner courtyards and well sound-proofed from city noise.
Royalty-style comfort, space, gastronomy and the most remarkable flower displays in town sum up the amazing George V, situated in the Champs-Elysées golden triangle, with plenty of high-end fashion in the vicinity. Suites all have enormous dressing rooms – ready for substantial shopping sprees; the largest Royal and Presidential suites come with lounge, office, dining room and kitchen area, ripe for business meetings or entire families.
A hit with the A-list celebrities, the Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme is famed for its quirky Asian-inspired interiors and the Michelin-starred restaurant Pur. The quietly-sophisticated interior has a tranquil vibe, with modern artwork, marble floors, limestone walls, pillars and colonnades throughout the public areas, while the rooms are minimalist with a classic feel, featuring a plain beige and dark brown colour scheme with golden touches throughout, which are said to reflect Asian royalty.
