State-of-the-art technology and stylish comfort make this a Paris landmark
French taste at its very best
The Hotel Plaza Athénée is a showcase of the very best in French taste, lavished throughout its 146 spacious guestrooms and 45 suites. Windows look onto Avenue Montaigne with its fine chestnut trees, the hotel's peaceful garden courtyard Cour Jardin, the rooftops of Montmartre, or the Eiffel Tower. Décor is in Louis XVI, Regency or Art Deco style, and rooms include daily papers, flat screen TV, DVD player, high-speed Internet access, and a pillow menu to ensure a perfect night's sleep. Dining options include the superb Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée restaurant with its contemporary French cuisine.
Tea at La Terrasse Montaigne
This venue could justly be described as a "style observatory," as a result of its enviable postion on one of the most prestigious high fashion streets of the world. At the same time it is a rare example of a verdant green streetside setting in the heart of Paris. The garden was designed by Patrick Jouin (previously a Philippe Starck protegé), and shade is provided by canopies with reproductions of Fragonard paintings. Enjoy tea and coffee at any time in the afternoon, with pastries by famous pastry chef Christophe Michalak.
