La Maison Champs Elysées Review

A 10-minute walk from the city's most famous avenue, this hotel in the heart of the Golden Triangle lures an art-minded crowd with an eclectic twist on an historical Haussmanian belle demeure. Imagine Alice in Wonderland meets Marie Antoinette and you'll understand the avant-garde trompe d'oeil entrance, skewed angles, and light sconces in the all-white reception room illuminating blank walls, questioning the absence of paintings. The minimalist and quirky interior style keeps in line with enigmatic Belgian designer Martin Margiela, who converted the 1866 building that once belonged to the Duchess of Rivoli. "Boutique" rooms, while small, aim to please with luxurious linens, goose-feather duvets, flat-screen TVs, and Maison Margiela toiletries. Splurge on one of 17 "Couture" rooms, featuring the Curiosity Case Suite—with carbon-color walls and floors interrupted by artistic textural element and sleek furnishings. Urban chic meets traditional fare in the Cigar Bar and 80-seat restaurant serving a seasonal menu.
