Hôtel Fouquet's Barrière Review

Steps away from one of the world's most famous streets, this luxury hotel adjacent to the legendary Fouquet's Brasserie at the corner of the Champs-Élysées and Avenue George V is recognizable by its uniformed valets, parked sports cars, and elegant Haussmanien entryway. The retro design, by Jacques Garcia, is more refined than opulent, with a rich neutral palette in silk, mahogany, velvet, and leather. The hotel competes with Parisian palaces by offering 24-hour butler service, plasma TVs hidden behind mirrors, spacious marble bathrooms, and access to fine dining. Le Diane offers a softer atmosphere than the sophisticated brasserie, and the teak- and red-walled spa claims to have the largest indoor pool in Paris. Head upstairs to the ultra-trendy bar—the perfect place to meet for an apéro before heading to the historic eatery next door. An international well-heeled crowd, suited business people, trendy wanna-bes, and the occasional celebrity comprise the guestlist. Service is young, friendly, and relatively unpretentious.
