Hôtel Le Bristol Review

The historic Bristol ranks among Paris's most exclusive hotels and has numerous accolades to prove it—and it's even hit the big screen, featured in Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris. Some of the spacious and elegant rooms have authentic Louis XV and Louis XVI furniture, embroidered silk fabrics, and marble bathrooms; others have a more relaxed 19th-century style. The public salons are stocked with old-master paintings and sculptures, sumptuous carpets and tapestries, gilded chandeliers, and fine antiques. The haute-cuisine Epicure restaurant, run by award-winning chef Eric Frechon, has a beautiful outdoor courtyard terrace to enjoy in warmer weather. A gourmet brasserie with contemporary floral decor offers a chic alternative. Sip an after-hours martini in the sophisticated but extremely friendly Le Jardin Français or Bar du Bristol near the lobby that buzzes with a discreet wealthy crowd. Exclusive Swiss La Prairie products are featured in the eight treatment rooms of the stunning spa.
