Beyond a stone gateway you'll pass a beautiful fountain on your way into a grand foyer—this renovated 19th-century mansion feels like a countryside château nested in the heart of the busy metropolis. A sybaritic spa, exercise room, and what is probably the city's most glorious hotel staircase forge a loyal following of guests who enjoy a clubby, upscale atmosphere day and night. Belonging to the Relais & Châteaux collection of premium hotels, the hotel is decorated
in sumptuous fabrics, genteel antiques, and period furnishings. A quick 20-minute walk gets you to L'Arc de Triomphe. To reach the most famous avenue in the world, head down Avenue Foch, one of the widest city streets lined with prestigious apartments.
