Displaying French elegance at its best, this impressively restored 19th-century mansion gazing across the Seine at the Eiffel Tower was once the stately home of Prince Roland Bonaparte, grandnephew of the emperor himself, and his gilded private apartments have been transformed into La Suite Impérial. Many of the luxurious historical details have been carefully restored or faithfully re-created for the property's transformation into the first Shangri-La hotel in Europe. This hotel is already a classic, with half of the rooms facing the Eiffel Tower, and nearly two-thirds with their own balconies. All have ultraglamorous French and Asian touches and the latest technological amenities. Marble bathrooms have deep soaking bathtubs, heated floors, Bulgari toiletries, and TV screens embedded in the mirror. Three highly rated restaurants (including one with a stunning atrium), several cozy lounges, a 24/7 fitness room, a gorgeous indoor pool, and soothing wellness center with therapeutic facials, massages, and body treatments make it hard to ever leave. For the most unforgettable experience, splurge for the spectacular terrace views from the top-floor Suite Shangri-La.
