Hôtel Plaza Athénée

25 av. Montaigne, 8e, Paris, 75008, France

Distinguished by the scarlet flowers cascading over its elegant facade, this glamorous landmark hotel sits on one of the most expensive avenues in Paris. The suites' interior design, led by Marie-José Pommereau, expertly places contemporary pieces in a luxe traditional setting, culminating in the two quintessentially Parisian Eiffel suites, where the looming tower is framed by floor-to-ceiling windows. Sumptuous rooms enchant with designer furnishings and luxurious conveniences like remote-control air-conditioning, compact sound systems, and even a pillow menu. Alain Ducasse's signature restaurant—a contender for best restaurant in Paris—was given a glittering new look that reflects the hotel's haute-couture grandeur, with haute cuisine to match.
