That Prince de Galles, Starwood’s Luxury Collection entry in the Parisian palace bracket, was going full Art Deco in its design to pay homage to its 1920s roots, we knew from our preview earlier this year.

Back then, the finishing touches were still being done, so we wandered down ultra-chic Avenue George V during a recent stop in Paris to check out the final result. If the Twenties are your era and Art Deco is your style, Prince de Galles should be high on your list of places to stay in the city. From the ever so stylish black-and-white prints that line the walls and luscious black marble floor in the lobby to the moodily-lit bar and mosaic-tiled courtyard, Twenties glamour is what it’s all about.

Walking into the hotel, you will find reception and concierge desks on your left hand side, with guest elevators both straight ahead and to the left before the main staircase that twists up to the second floor. To the right you will find both the entrance to restaurant La Scène, with its open kitchen, and bar Les Heures.

The octagonal ceiling paintings and dramatic chandelier look even better in the low evening light, with fixtures on the wall reflecting the shape of the hotel’s emblem.

Breakfast is served in Les Heures as well, and when weather permits, the glass panels will drop and you can dine or drink al fresco.

Nightly rates, as with all Parisian palaces, may make you pause before hitting the “book” button: rooms start around the €700 mark, just shy of the magic $1,000. We’ll leave you with a few more photos while you contemplate taking the hit on your credit card.
