Le Meurice Paris
- What's Included
Having researched and written about LM in a book I published a couple years ago I was excited to visit and have tea in the afternoon on a recent stay in Paris. From the moment the car puled up to leaving it was heaven. Exactly what you expect from a luxury hotel. The staff are so well trained - helping you feel at home and pampered. Thanks you for making the experience so lovely.
Stayed at LM for 5 nights for a romantic getaway with my girlfriend.The hotel’s location is magnificent, right across the Tuileries, walking distance to Louvre, D’Orsay, L’Orangerie, Notre Dane. The metro stop is right across the street.The staff are incredibly friendly and very helpful. They tolerated my mediocre French. We were upgraded and the room was huge, and very comfortable. Bathroom was spacious and comfortable. Zero complaints on room/bed/WiFi.Even the courtyard view was serene. The restaurants were incredible. Definitely pricey, but food was great. The bar has live music and is a great scene.The iced mirror in the lobby is a whimsical touch.There are many incredible hotels in Paris, but we’d be hard pressed to stay anywhere else.
During a recent trip to Paris, one of things I was really looking forward to was having Tea at Le Meurice. I've stayed at the hotel in the past (and written a review about that wonderful experience), but I've never had Tea there.To say I was disappointed would be an understatement. I was embarrassed because I had spent so much time telling my travel companion about how wonderful Le Meurice was. What we experienced did not live up my praises. I want to say that the food was good—the pastries were delicious—and the people who greeted us and sat us at our table were very professional and welcoming. But that's where the good service ended. Our waitperson was abrupt and seemed uninterested in doing anything except the minimum needed to not appear outright rude. Once the Tea was delivered, we were ignored for the rest of our time there. At one point I started looking for our waitperson to ask for the check, and couldn't find him—he had simply disappeared from the area. I waited another 30 minutes and finally waved down a different waitperson and requested the check. At least three other tables who shared our same waitperson suffered similar fates. There was clearly a manager present who seemed to not care and who ignored the obvious service problem.When we left, I apologized to my friend for the bad experience. If you're wanting to experience afternoon tea while visiting Paris, I would NOT recommend Le Meurice. Go someplace else. I expected much more from this hotel.
After 52 years of living in and traveling to Europe my wife and I have narrowed our trips to mainly London and Paris. The glories of Europe are, for me, most lovingly expressed in its great historic hotels: the Gritti in Venice, London's Claridge's (before it was neutered by Blackstone in the late '90's) immediately come to mind. In the end the Meurice is our favorite; it's location across from the Tuileries and the Seine, the fact that it manages to be extremely elegant while also being breathtakingly efficient, and the finely tailored service of its beautifully choreographed staff are just 3 of the many characteristics that make this hotel the best of the best. A small example: I needed a piece of bespoke luggage attended to and one of the concierges, Anouck, spent a staggering amount of time arranging for wire transfers of funds, personalization, and everything else that was involved in making arrangements; and, with never a sigh or a complaint, she warmly communicated that it was her pleasure to see the project through. Whether you stay in a grand suite with a view or a cozy interior room, you will receive the same outstanding service. When age requires that we narrow our European travels to one city and hotel, it will be the Paris' s Meurice.
Every time we go to Paris , Le Meurice is always a top choice.,whether a couple days or more. At this hotel you are certainly sure that everything will be smooth and well taken care of. From concierge , front door, to receptionist ... you've been pampered by professional and friendly service by all staffs here. The hotel decoration is so beautiful and elegant. The two star Michelin Alain Ducasse restaurant is here and i should say it's one of the most beautiful and elegant decorative restaurant in the world ( inspired by the Salon de la Paix at Chateau de Versailles. ( though the new table design is a bit too modern) The Bar 228 has a nice martini with a live band at night . Last but not least , the tea time with refined and delicious pastries by the renowned pastry chef Cedric Grolet, is one of the highlight of this hotel.Those are the qualities of the hotel not to be mentioned is the location of the hotel is just opposite Tuilerie garden , and Rue Saint Honore : the luxury shopping street just on the back of the hotel. Next to hotel is the famous cafe and pastry , Angelina which you can see a long line of tourists in the afternoon.These are what you get from staying at Le Meurice.
