Surrounded by all the enticements of the 1st arrondissement of Paris, The Westin is just moments from the Place Vendôme, Louvre Museum, Place de la Concorde, Tuileries Garden, and the luxury boutiques of Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. The superb location makes it an ideal stay for business, sightseeing or shopping.
The hotel has a long and glorious history. It was built to design by architect Henri Blondel, Charles Garnier's son-in-law, and opened in 1878. Over the decades, the hotel has borne witness to many historical moments and played host to countless personalities and royalty. The Westin’s exterior Palladian-style arches exude elegance, whereas inside, the hotel’s public spaces are filled with Second Empire exuberance and priceless objets d’art. An interior courtyard hosts the Winter Garden reception hall and the open-air restaurant.
The 440-room hotel is known for panoramic views of the city, including the Tuileries Garden, Place de la Concorde, the Seine River, and Eiffel Tower. The interiors were designed by Sybille de Margerie, in plush fabrics and rich colours, such as purple and gold, and resemble a private Parisian house. Le First, the in-house restaurant, provides a chic setting for chef Gilles Grasteau’s contemporary twist on traditional Brasserie-style cuisine. When the weather allows, Le First extends outdoors to La Terrase in the hotel’s main courtyard. For cocktails and snacks Tuileries Bar is a romantic and cosy nook to relax.
