Fodor's Expert Review La Réserve

42 av. Gabriel, 8e, Paris, Île-de-France, 75008, France Fodor's Choice

Set in a splendid 19th-century mansion just steps from the presidential palace and the American Embassy, this aristocratic lodging vies for the most elegant small hotel in Paris. The rooms are a sumptuous feast for the eyes, done up in an extravagant mix of period antiques and deluxe contemporary design, with silk-damask walls, large marble baths, and herringbone parquet floors. Enjoy a cocktail by the fire in the magnificent lounge or fine dining at the gastronomic restaurant Le Gabriel. The full-service spa and pool cater to your total relaxation.
