Address: 1 place Vendôme, , Paris, 75001, France

Star rating:
4 star hotel

4.4

Decadent luxury in one of the grandest addresses in Paris.

This place feels exclusive from the moment you walk into the almost garishly colourful marble lobby. It's OTT but brilliantly so – just made for playing out your Madame de Pompadour fantasies, and with just 29 rooms and suites, you have the impression of your own private getaway.

Location

Smart Paris: in a beautiful period building on the corner of place Vendôme and rue St-Honoré, think fashion designers and jewellers, although you're also very near to [node:168630] and the Tuileries.

Bedrooms

All of the rooms, except the Art Deco Presidential Suite, are a luxurious take on period style with ruched fabrics, tassels and chandeliers. The deluxe doubles – decent sized rooms overlooking the street – are a better deal than the junior suites. Marble bathrooms have big baths made to soak in.

Public areas

The hotel has a smart and shiny marble lobby. 

Eating and drinking

On the first floor, the Restaurant Le 1 Place Vendôme has a discrete boudoir-like feel, with jazzy houndstooth chairs; new chef Nicolas Rucheton makes the most of seasonal regional produce. It's also a bar and lounge, open for Afternoon Tea or evening drinks, with a huge choice of malt whiskies.

Leisure facilities

Rather surprisingly for such a luxurious setting, the hotel lacks a spa or gym, although it does have two meeting rooms.

Service

Uniformed reception staff, with concierges ready to book restaurants, operas and other services.

Who stays there

Although business travellers and families do stay here, this is really a place for romantic weekends à deux.
