Plaza Athénée

France / Paris

Member: Dorchester Collection

Let your dreams come true by spending a luxurious holiday in Paris, staying in one of its most beautiful and famous hotels. The charm and elegance of Plaza Athénée has been endorsed by both international and French clientele already since 1913. Many celebrities have enjoyed the comforts of this hotel – including Grace Kelly, Gary Cooper and Jackie Kennedy.

Plaza Athénée is on Avenue Montaigne, between the Champs Elysées and Eiffel tower, about 30 minutes’ drive from Charles De Gaulle airport. When Christian Dior opened on Avenue Montaigne, the avenue immediately became the centre of Parisian “haute couture”.

The hotel was recently renovated and the rooms and suites showcase French style at its best. The rooms offer views of either Avenue Montaigne lined with chestnut trees, or the tranquil courtyard of Cour Jardin. You can also see the roofs of Montmartre and even the Eiffel tower from the side. Room interiors are decorated in Art Deco or Louis XVI styles.

Gourmets will be thrilled by the 4 restaurants and bar, which offers the most daring cocktails in town. The head Chef, Mr Alain Ducasse, is responsible for all the venues. In his own restaurant - Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée – he prepares exquisite French cuisine. Enjoy the brassiere menu at the elegant Le Relais Plaza or visit Le Galerie des Gobelins with its velvet sofas and gentle harp music, where light snacks, tea and chocolate are served throughout the day. Le Galerie des Gobelins and Le Relais Plaza were a favourite choice of Joséphine Baker, Rudolph Valentino and Maurice Chevalier. La Terrasse Montaigne is located on Paris’s most famous fashion avenue and offers light snacks and innovative cocktails. La Cour Jardin is open from May to September in the hotel courtyard.

After a day in the city, relax and experience the luxury of the Dior Institute. It offers massages and beauty treatments all tailor made.
