Why we choose Le Bristol Paris

Le Bristol Paris has cultivated a very Parisian atmosphere where they’re all about the details

  • Three-Michelin-starred Epicure is a rare culinary treat
  • Spa Le Bristol Paris by La Prairie was recently named best European Spa
  • Some signature suites offer large terraces, private gyms and rooftop views

This is a true palace in the sense that the service makes you feel like royalty. Quality is everything and in everything—even the bathrooms are worth writing home about. To say that all of this refinement doesn’t come cheap is an understatement, but if your pockets are deep enough, you won’t be sorry you booked Le Bristol Paris.

What you need to know about the hotel

Le Bristol Paris is a European heritage palace long renowned for service and sophistication

  • Brasserie 114 Faubourg hosts wine appreciation evenings each month wherein growers present their wines over a customized four-course tasting menu
  • Swim among the clouds in the perfectly heated sixth-floor pool, with sweeping views over Montmartre and Sacré Coeur
  • Le Bar’s head barman, named Best Craftsman in France, offers samples of rare liquors and vertical tastings of prestigious Champagnes

Le Bristol Paris was built in 1925, and it caught on quickly with old Hollywood legends like Charlie Chaplin and Rita Hayworth. Once you step foot inside, you’ll understand why. The classic architecture and rooms decorated with real 18th century pieces are absolutely stunning, and the Parisian palace feel is unique to the city. We appreciate that the hotel has been owned by the same family since 1978, ensuring the same level of quality continues from one generation to the next. The 188 guestrooms (pretty evenly divided between rooms and suites) are universally glamorous, though we recommend booking a room on an upper floor for the best views.

Where is it and what's nearby

Le Bristol Paris resides on elegant Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré at the heart of the fashion and arts district

  • Le Marais represents bygone Paris, an ode to the likes of Victor Hugo and home to the oldest square in the city
  • The Jardin des Tuileries, Paris’ oldest formal gardens, includes impressionist art collections in the Musée de l’Orangerie
  • The massive Palace of Versailles is worth the short drive, as is picturesque Giverny, which inspired Monet’s water lilies

Le Bristol Paris would be chic no matter where it was located, but its Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré home base is yet another draw. There’s no better place for an upscale Parisian shopping experience, thanks to high-end retailers such as Yves Saint Laurent and Prada and art galleries where the most prestigious artists exhibit. It’s also about 10 minutes from the Tuileries gardens, the Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay and the Garnier opera house.

The entire Champs-Elysées District around the hotel is one of the most beautiful stretches in the world. The famous Champs-Elysées sits between the Arc de Triomphe and the Place de la Concorde and, along with avenue George V and avenue Montaigns, forms the Golden Triangle where even more prestigious shops (Chanel, Dior and Valentino to name a few) can be found. A number of hotels offer great access to these avenues, but one of the best things about Le Bristol Paris is its 4,000-square-foot French gardens—a real escape in the heart of bustling Paris.

How to enjoy Paris

From the iron pinnacle of the Eiffel Tower, to the white stone domes of the Sacre Coeur and the multi-colored pipes of the Centre Pompidou, Paris is not short of iconic and instantly recognizable architecture

  • The Louvre is a must, though be warned it is staggeringly huge, you could easily spend a day, a week, mooching through its echoing galleries
  • For art on a more intimate scale, visit the Musée Rodin: the sculptor’s exquisite mansion is home to The Kiss and sits within gorgeous gardens
  • Head out of town to visit the Château de Versailles where the treaty that ended the First World War was signed in the lavish Hall of Mirrors

To feel the essence of Parisian romance, explore the winding, lantern-lit streets of the Marais, and sample the menus of Art Deco bistros and restaurants that twinkle below their Michelin stars. For cobbled alleys and stairways you’ll want to photograph, head to Montmartre. When your feet begin to complain, continue sightseeing from the comfort of a Bateau Mouche and enjoy the river-eye view of Nôtre Dame and Pont Neuf.

To truly indulge in the art and joy of shopping, you really need to step inside the Galeries Lafayette. The wares of this upmarket department store are stunning, but browsing can be tough when your eyes keep being drawn to the fabulous domed atrium and lavish balconies. For prêt-à-porter chic, head to rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, where you’ll find France’s leading fashion labels including Chanel, Hermès and Dior.
