Indulge in the epitome of Parisian romance at Hotel Plaza Athénée - where every moment is a love story waiting to be written
Experience the epitome of Parisian romance at the Hotel Plaza Athénée. This luxurious haven exudes timeless charm, offering an enchanting blend of classic architecture, delectable macarons, and champagne, all of which can be delivered to your room upon request.
Couples are treated to captivating courtyard views through Parisian windows, elegant Haussmann facades, or enchanting vistas of the Eiffel Tower, depending on your chosen room. Each room is thoughtfully equipped with modern amenities, including a plasma screen TV, a personalised minibar boasting a selection of 80 beverages, and a choice of pillows to ensure your utmost comfort. For the ultimate Parisian grandeur, revel in gilded mirrors, high-reaching ceilings, grand chandeliers, and the unparalleled top-floor skyline views, with the Eiffel Tower gleaming under the night sky.
Start your day with a sumptuous breakfast in the opulent grand restaurant, where crystal chandeliers illuminate the ornate gold leaf ceiling and majestic columned walls. Savour viennoiserie and fruit presented on silver trays or indulge in eggs prepared to your liking. Of course, no romantic stay at Plaza Athénée would be complete without the indulgence of breakfast in bed.
For a memorable evening, dine at La Cour Jardin in the exquisite interior courtyard. The seasonal menu celebrates nature's bounty with a vibrant, summer-inspired palette. Michelin-starred Chef Jean Imbert elevates noble ingredients with simplicity, creating unforgettable culinary experiences. Half of the menu pays homage to plants and local producers, while the other half showcases meticulously selected meats and seafood for their freshness. The courtyard provides a tranquil escape from the city's hustle and bustle, enveloped in lush greenery and shaded by the hotel's signature Plaza red parasols.
For fashion enthusiasts like myself, Plaza Athénée is a must-visit. As a filming location for both 'Emily in Paris' and 'Sex and the City', it allows you to immerse yourself in the glamorous world of these iconic series. Beyond its screen presence, the hotel's fashion legacy runs deep. Nestled in Paris' haute couture heart, the Golden Triangle, specifically on Avenue Montaigne, it became a magnet for fashion luminaries, journalists, and models during Fashion Week and Couture shows. You'll find traces of Plaza Athénée's fashion heritage throughout the hotel, from the Dior Spa to the salon rooms that once hosted couture fashion shows. In fact, Dior himself unveiled his debut collection at the hotel in 1947 and even named a suit after Plaza Athénée's cocktail bar.
Here, you'll experience the very essence of Paris, where leisurely breakfasts in bed, couples' massages, and champagne in the tranquil courtyard are not just encouraged but celebrated.
Rates for a couple's stay start at £1,300 per night, including breakfast. Visit plazaathenee.com to plan your unforgettable Parisian getaway.
