Why we like it
- Part of the Dorchester Collection, the hotel is located opposite the Tuileries Gardens, between Place de la Concorde and the Musée du Louvre
- One of just a small group of hotels to receive the highest French grade for hotel - 'Palace distinction'
- The 18th century Restaurant Le Meurice styled by Philippe Starck overlooks the Tuileries Gardens and oozes romantic elegance
- The Valmont Spa offers packages to relax and unwind between a busy schedule of sightseeing and dinner
- A nice touch is that each room is soundproofed, allowing the famed Parisian traffic to be kept at bay
About Le Meurice
Le Meurice is a sumptuous Parisian palace with a Philippe Stark twist. Inspiration has been taken from Dali, who spent around a month a year at the hotel. He didn't disappoint and took inspiration from Salvador Dali who spent around a month a year at the hotel. Some of the touches are designed to surprise and leave guests doing-double takes in the lavish surroundings of the hotel's lobbies. In one, guests sit under a giant hand-painted canopy among tables with loud cowhide print sofas and dainty chairs offering just three legs. Dali would have loved it.
