The City of Light is booming with new and
rebuffed five-star hotels. Here's what you'll find at five of the best.
Paris is in the midst of a massive hotel boom. It started
last year, with the unveiling of the Peninsula Paris, and hasn't slowed
since. With new hotels and massive renovations throughout the city, each
hotel is bringing its own cache of luxury, and within it, a single perk
that's worth seeking out. Here's the scoop on three notable newcomers,
and what's on the horizon for two more. The Peninsula Paris The Hong
Kong brand behind this hotel spent 15 years scouting the ideal location to
open its first outpost in Europe, which became an instant classic and was
named a T+L It List property this year. In Paris' ritzy 16 Arrondissement,
in a lavish turn-of-the-century building, it preserves detailed tributes to
its historic details. And while news has spread of the hotel's opening, you
don't have to be a guest to take advantage of its best feature: the rooftop
terrace and restaurant L'Oiseau Blanc, which nearly feels like you're in a
vintage Cessna, cruising just above the Paris rooftops. Riffing off the
French aviation theme, the restaurant is a nod to two French pilots who made
one of the earliest attempts at a trans-Atlantic crossing. As such, the views
of the Paris skyline and the Eiffel Tower are among the best you can find in
the city. The only thing that will compete for your attention, is the equally
elevated 'bistronomy' fare, like a refined play on surf and turf that
features sardine and beef tartar with mint, and braised veal with pink
radishes and apricot coulis. The Hotel Regina Francophiles will love
bedding down at the Hotel Regina for its classic French style and new modern
twists. Fresh off the heels of a two-year, $19 million renovation, this
classic beauty has a polished new look. Beneath its imperial domed roof, the
lobby's regal moldings, chandeliers, and floral stained glass windows are a
tribute to stylish French living. The small but opulent dining room
overlooking Rue de Rivoli makes it feel more like a French chateaux than an
urban hotel—enough, at least, for the fashion industry titans that frequent
the hotel. Guest rooms sport Pierre Frey and Nobilis fabrics against a
peaceful cream backdrop with pops of champagne-hued accents. Amenities
include products from renowned parfum house Fragonard. Just off the Place de
Pyramids, many rooms overlook the Tuileries garden and, in the distance, the
Eiffel Tower. New soundproofing has made it nearly impossible to hear the
outside noise, making it feel like you could be all the way in Versailles.
La Reserve Hotel Paris This Haussmann-style manor was originally built in
1854, and reopened this year as La Reserve. With only 26 suites and 14 rooms
tucked behind a curtain of trees, its intimate nature draws people seeking
refuge from the Champs-Elysees. But the real relaxation takes place in the
spa. With only three treatment rooms next to a 54-foot dimly lit indoor pool,
as well as an in-house perfumery, it's a veritable oasis. On the horizon
It's taken more than three years to restore the Ritz Paris, but come the
end of 2015 when it reopens, the room count will drop to make way for more
suites, including an Imperial Suite made in the exact image of
Marie-Antoinette's in Versaille. New eateries include three restaurants,
three bars (as well as the famed Bar Hemingway), and afternoon tea by the
wood-burning fireplace at the historic Salon Proust. After being closed
for more than two years for a complete renovation, the Hotel de Crillon will
open in 2016. This regal 18th century landmark possesses some of the most
stunning hotel design in Paris, which will be augmented by the work of
Parisian hotel architect Richard Martinet. None other than Karl Lagerfeld
will design two of the hotel's suites, paying tribute to 18th century Paris
with a contemporary stylish edge. Jenna Scatena is on the San Francisco
Bay Area beat for Travel + Leisure. Follow her on Twitter and Instagram.
