The Plaza Athenee Hotel in Paris is a 5-star hotel, part of the Dorchester Collection. It is located on the Avenue Montaigne, in the heart of the luxury shopping district and very close to the Champs Elysees. That makes it ideally positioned for weekenders wanting to explore Paris on foot.

The frontage of the building is everything you would expect from Paris, and more. A large stone building with sculptured details, the hotel has awnings over the windows and ivy climbing up the walls. Flower boxes and small balconies create a romantic and stylish atmosphere before guests have even entered the hotel. A red theme adds a touch of class to the outside, and is reflected in both the fabrics and the flowers.

You’re made to feel welcome from the moment the concierge helps you out of your car. Paying attention to every detail, they remembered our name and made sure our check-in was quick and easy. The staff introduced themselves to us, and made themselves available to us whenever we needed them.

Once you have entered the hotel, it doesn’t take long to notice that the décor is elegant French and very opulent; every inch of the hotel was beautifully finished. Everything we saw was high quality and immaculately clean. Every furnishing and fitting was in perfect condition, and even the traditional French lift was in fantastic working order. This attention to detail really adds to the guests’ experience.

“The entire hotel has an atmosphere of luxurious elegance throughout.”

We stayed in the Eiffel Terrace Suite which afforded stunning and unspoiled views of the Eiffel tower. Overlooking Paris from your own private balcony, we also had unspoiled views of the Sacre Coeur. Our suite continued the high-class feel that we had experienced in the rest of the hotel, even providing a bar for us to enjoy while we took in the view.

The room was beautifully decorated and furnished with a large, comfortable bed and an extremely spacious bathroom. The king size bed comes with a range of pillows to suit every taste. The Plaza Athenee staff do their upmost to ensure that every guest is comfortable during their stay and exhibit an impressive attention to detail.

The bathroom continued the high-class and luxurious feeling with a large bath that overlooked the Eiffel tower. With a private steam room and windows that de-mist at the flick of a switch, The Plaza Athenee Hotel goes out of its way to provide its guests with luxury.

The Plaza Athenee also has a luxury spa run by the glamorous Dior brand. The spa itself could be taken from a film set. High ceilings, wispy white curtains, luxurious furniture and a calm atmosphere gives guests the calm and quiet atmostphere required to relax. There are a huge range of treatments available as well as a sauna, steam room, fitness room and private treatment rooms.

The entire hotel has an atmosphere of luxurious elegance throughout. Every member of staff knows what they are doing, and go to great lengths to ensure you have everything you need. The concierge was great at suggesting places to visit and securing dinner reservations for us.

Overall, the hotel is expensive, but you really do get what you pay for. The service is impeccable, the surroundings are elegant and luxurious, and that view is almost priceless. We would stay here again in an instant.
