Recently Renovated Five-Star Parisian Hotels

Le Royal Monceau (Image courtesy Le Royal Monceau)It’s no secret that Paris is heaven for design lovers.

 

From Napoleonic maisons to Haussmann appartements, there’s no shortage of types of structures for interior designers to fill with historical or contemporary elements (or a blend of both).

 

Of course, some of the best design work can be found in Paris’ boutique hotels, many of which combine cutting edge design with unprecedented luxury. 

 

Here are two recently renovated five star hotels to check into the next time you're lucky enough to find yourself in the City of Lights.

 

 

Le Royal Monceau (37 Avenue Hoche, Paris, leroyalmonceau.com)

The first thing visitor’s to the Royal Monceau notice is the striking red and black art nouveau entryway. The hotel’s interior was designed by Philippe Starck and consists of a luxurious and eclectic mix of white and grey furniture and accents with a modern edge (including plenty of cutting-edge technological elements). While you’re staying in one of their 85 rooms or 54 suites, take full advantage of Le Monceau’s amenities, including two award-winning restaurants (La Cuisine and Il Carpaccio), a spa, pool, courtyard, cinema and bookshop. The five-star Le Royal Monceau is located in Paris’ affluent 8th arrondissement, not far from the Champs-Elysées.

 

Paris Shangri-La  (10 Avenue d'Iéna, Paris, shangri-la.com)

If you’re in the mood for something a bit more traditional, check out the Shangri-La, which opened last month in the former residence of Prince Roland Bonaparte (yes, he was Napoleon’s nephew. Designed by Pierre-Yves Rochon, the interior harkens back to another era, with crystal chandeliers, velvet upholstery and lacquer accents. The 81 rooms (including the coveted panoramic suite with private terrace) boast this same opulent aesthetic (a few extra Euros can get you a view of the Eiffel Tower). The five-star Paris Shangri-La is located in the historic 16th arrondissement.

  • Fingering your way through crate after crate of vinyl discs in search of that one final piece of sonic perfection that's been eluding your otherwise complete collection of cherished LPs is a lot like hunting for Easter eggs, just way more gratifying to the eardrums. So, it makes sense that this year's Record Store Day – Saturday April 19th – falls on Easter weekend.

Eating a healthy meal before you board the plane regulates your blood sugar and your digestive system and makes you a healthier, happier traveler. It’s also important to pack healthy snacks to enjoy on the plane (so as to avoid the over-processed and expensive food that most airlines serve) and stay well-hydrated throughout your trip....read more
