The foyer is immersed in the culture, and the original architecture underwent more than six years of renovation, with a careful dedication to protect and reinvigorate the hotel’s original beauty. The stunning exterior is almost outmatched by the lavish interior, which boasts a private penthouse, 76 rooms and luxury suites, a spa, a black lacquered bar, a Bvlgari chocolate boutique, and three-star Michelin Chef Niko Romito’s restaurant.

Castiglione at Hotel Costes

The original Costes on Rue Saint-Honoré was one of the earliest cult anti-hotels. It fashioned itself as a members’ club that also happened to include 78 small, baroque-chic bedrooms above the semi-darkness of its ground floor.

Located on adjacent Rue Castiglione, and connected to Hotel Costes via a secret door, the Castiglione is nothing like the vintage anti-hotel. Featuring a private elevator and VIP entrance, this 5 star hotel in Paris offers 38 rooms and luxury suites that are more spacious than those in the Costes Hotel. Guests are often mesmerized by the gilded sculpture soaring above the roof, which is part of the hotel’s curated collection of art.

The suite spans more than 160 meters and includes a private entrance, guest bathroom, private steam room, living room with personal bar, big-screen TV, dining room, and emperor-sized bed.

The spaciousness of the suite is enhanced by the natural light that filters into every room and reflects off the stunning limestone and marble surfaces.

Hôtel Plaza Athénée

In 1913, the Plaza Athénée graced Paris with its signature red awnings and became an inspiration for classic Christian Dior collections. With deep ties to the fashion world, the entire essence of this luxury hotel in Paris is captivating, from the striking chandeliers to bursts of contemporary details such as the futuristic, chrome-covered banquettes of an Alain Ducasse restaurant to the cobalt-infused fabric ceiling of Le Bar.

Creativity abounds with Parisian-style rooms up to the sixth floor, which give way to the wondrous world of Art Deco glamour on the seventh floor, which is newly restored by designers Bruno Moinard and Claire Bétaille. No matter which style guests opt for, the rooms are designed with elegant furnishings, including silk-covered chairs, plush beds of high-end linen, and a menu of pillow options.

La Réserve Paris Hotel and Spa

Located a short distance from Champs-Elysées, midway between Avenue Montaigne and Rue du Faubourg St-Honoré, La Réserve Paris offers guests remarkable views of the Eiffel tower, the Pantheon, the Grand Palais, and the Concord obelisk in a setting sheltered by a majestic stand of trees echoing nearby Elysée gardens.

Guests marvel at the Haussman-style facade, and rich red door, before stepping into another era. La Réserve Paris, which blends 19th-century elegance and modern details, was formerly a mansion belonging to Napoleon’s step-brother before re-opening in 2015. The opulent interior is replete with rich velvet drapery, silk damask walls, gilt frames, and herringbone parquet floors and offers cushy pillow-covered sofas, plush upholstered club chairs, ornate fireplaces, and shelves filled with more than 3,000 antique books. The intimate garden lounge transports guests from the city, which is just moments away, to an oasis of peace and relaxation.

In a city renowned for its cuisine, the hotel’s restaurants, Le Gabriel and La Pagode de Cos, overseen by Executive Chef Jérôme Banctel, are in a class of their own, and each delivers a unique interpretation of the Chef’s vision. Michelin two-starred Gabriel is an ode to the classics of French gastronomy, while the area’s seasonal produce inspires the menu at la Pagode de Cos.

Guests can also revel in calm and serenity in The Spa at La Réserve Paris. A private sanctuary retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city, the Spa boasts a 16m indoor pool, hammam, fitness area, and three treatment rooms. The Spa is also the only establishment in the capital that offers the cosmeceutical products and treatments of the Nescens-Swiss anti-aging science brand.
