Hôtel Plaza Athénée Review
"Superlative" sums up the overall impression of this glamorous landmark hotel on one of the most expensive avenues in Paris, will reopen after a top-to-bottom facelift in August 2014. As part of its renovation, the hotel annexed two neighboring town houses and added six new guest rooms, eight suites, a ballroom, and two event spaces. Prime-time stardom as Carrie Bradshaw's Parisian pied-à-terre in the final episodes of Sex and the City boosted the glitzy image of this 1911 palace hotel. The decor of the suites, led by Marie-José Pommereau, expertly places contemporary pieces and the tradition setting. Sumptous rooms enchant with designer furnishings and luxurious conveniences like remote-control air-conditioning, compact sound systems, and even a pillow menu. Relax in the trendy Le Bar, redesigned by the Paris-based designers Jouin-Manku—it's an ideal haven for perfectly blended cocktails and celebrity-spotting. In winter, there's an interior courtyard ice-skating rink.
The Epitome of Parisian Style
Located in the heart of the Golden Triangle, between the Avenue des Champs Elysees and the Eiffel Tower, the stunning views of this palace hotel were immortalized as the romantic backdrop in the season finale of Sex and The City. Spacious rooms and suites are all tastefully decorated: two floors are Art Deco and six floors in Regency or Louis XVI styles. But the real show-stoppers here are Alain Ducasse's namesake restaurant, with his contemporary take on French haute cuisine, and the elegant Le Bar. It was decorated by interior designer Patrick Jouin, a former protégé of Philippe Starck, and mixes some of the best cocktails in the city.
