You know one of those “pinch me” moments when you’ve seen a place on Instagram or in the movies so many times and then you finally see it for your self and you can’t believe your eyes? Well this is how I felt the moment I walked onto the most romantic balcony in the world located inside the Hotel Plaza Athénée, Paris. I had the opportunity to stay at both of the Parisian Dorchester Collection properties and although Le Meurice and Plaza Athénée, Paris offer two very different experiences, the staff made me feel right at home and both places offered unforgettable memories.
Whehter you’re into window shopping or serious shopping, the Plaza Athénée, Paris is located in the heart of Haute Couture Paris on the ritzy Avenue Montaigne with stores like Gucci, Armani and Christian Dior leading up to the popular Champs-Élysées avenue.
The hotel caters to many styles by offering classic rooms in the French Regency style or the more modern Art Deco design. Nonetheless, the Plaza Athénée is known for being one of the most stylish hotels in the world so you can’t go wrong with either. Whether you stay in a suite or a deluxe/superior guestroom, you’re bound to have a ton of space and either a view of Avenue Montaigne or of the hotel’s stunning courtyard. iPads are also in each room making the 24/7 room service seamless.
La Terrasse Montaigne
Since our visit fell during the month of October, the courtyard terrace was closed and replaced by a beautiful art installation but we ended up having lunch on the terrace that lines Avenue Montaigne and it did not disappoint. Great for people watching and a light lunch, we ordered the sashimi which was super fresh and the club sandwiches.
