    Hotels We Love: Le Meurice Paris

    October 23, 2017

    It’s not everyday that you walk into a hotel and you feel like you’ve just walked into a fairy tale but the iconic and historic Le Meurice Paris surely has that effect on its guests. As the first Parisian Palace, Le Meurice is truly one of the world’s most beautiful hotels. You know they’re doing something right if Salvador Dali and Alain Ducasse were once regulars here. I had the opportunity to stay at the two Dorchester Collection sister hotels in Paris, Le Meurice and Hôtel Plaze Athénée and both offered two very different but equally beautiful experiences.

    With the Tuileries Garden and views of the Eiffel Tower as your front yard, the Louvre to your left and Place Vendome to your right, there is no better location to stay in Paris for those who like to stay centrally located.

    The public spaces are glamorous and are every corner is a work of art with a balance of classic and modern touches thanks to the redesign by Philippe Starck.

    Junior Suite
    Seeing my room for the first time was when that surreal feeling set in. The gorgeous Junior Suite had princess spelled all over it! With pink and gold touches, an expansive living room, a ton of closet space and a floor to ceiling marble bathroom.

    Le Meurice Alain Ducasse
    Magnificent is the perfect word to describe the setting at the Le Meurice Alain Ducasse restaurant. Modern touches such as Eero Saarinen Tulip chairs and funky mirrors add flair to the classic space. I only got to experience brunch here (which was absolutely delicious paired with flawless service) but I can’t imagine how memorable a dinner experience would be here.

    Le Dali
    With inspiration by Dali himself and touches by Philippe Starck as well as a cameo by his daughter, Ara Starck, this dining room is sure to make your jaw drop.

    Bar 228
    Dimmed lights, cozy interior and high ceilings, this classic bar is the perfect place for evening drinks and/or a night cap.
