French fashion’s long history is celebrated at Hôtel Plaza Athénée from its stylish perch in the Golden Triangle, next to the world’s best boutiques. Elements of haute couture are woven throughout the hotel, from bespoke furnishings to fashion-themed art and photographs with strong connections to designers. It also has world-class cuisine from chef Alain Ducasse and divine pastries from chef Jessica Préalpato — named the world’s best pastry chef. The Royal Suite, one of the largest in Paris, is well-suited for long stays and big groups. It spans the entire width of the hotel, has four en-suite bedrooms, two drawing rooms, a kitchen, office and dining room, as well as a private entrance with two security lobbies. The opulent French decor from renowned interior designer Marie-José Pommereau showcases Louis XV and XVI antiques, original artwork and luxurious fabrics and furnishings.
