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.
