Le Meurice Paris
- What's Included
There is a class of five-star hotel that no one can touch, and I feel like I have been able to experience this treasure trove of luxury on a few lucky occasions in Europe. I have never seen a city with such a wide range of five-star hotel class; Paris is certainly unique. Sometimes with five-star in Paris, you get a really good four. This is the first place in Paris I have stayed where a five-star experience has actually been a six or seven star luxury extravaganza. Le Meurice is the epitome of service, elegance, luxury and class. Plus, it holds the city's best location, Hands down.My husband and I head to Paris at least a couple times a year for work, always stopping by the Le Meurice Bar 228 for a whiskey sour. This time, we thought we would see what its rooms are all about and have a stay at what is now our new Parisian home. Upon walking up from the taxi, the bell men wisp your luggage away and escort you to reception. I was instantly overwhelmed by the sheer beauty of the lobby, an area I always bypassed for cocktails! What a special space. The art, the lighting, the people, all so beautiful.Our room was ready at 10:00am. I was shocked. We were given a quick tour of the hotel's main level and then taken up the back elevators to room #334. This is a newly renovated room which can be part of the Pompadour Suite, if rented in expanded form. The room overlooked Rue de Castiglione, with side views to Place Vendome and the Tuileries Gardens if you're daring enough to stick your head out the window. It was the perfect size for two people looking for romance and a little peace and quiet. The room featured a generous bar, lovely restroom with separate shower and tub, dual vanity and lovely ambient lighting. Each table was topped with classic white marble and the room featured these lovely modern copper lamps. The whole thing was so classic with a sweet modern edge. Rounding out the aesthetics was a live orchid plant and a large painting that retracted into the wall to reveal a Bang and Olufsen television. Just spectacular! In addition, the room was equipped with Bluetooth and speakers to stream your own music; a great touch! The bed was a pillow of perfection and the lavender mist provided at turn-down made falling asleep extra special. Fantastic lighting controls and automatic blackout shades rounded out a high-tech haven of luxury. I hope to stay in this exact room again next time.Just like in the past, we hit up the 228 Bar but this time every single evening before or after dinner. The entire team in there was so kind, friendly and accommodating. One gentleman recognized my husband from past trips and by the end of this visit, I think we crossed paths with everyone on the staff. The service, ambiance and drinks made every evening one of a kind. The treats created by the world-renowned Cedric Grolet and his team made our mouths water with ever bite. Le Citron Noir is the way to go in my opinion.I simply cannot wait to return to Le Meurice. Thank you all for a fantastic stay! Cheers!
The place where history meets with modernity. It is an amazing hotel for family vacations. Very kids friendly. Beautiful and comfortable! Staff is absolutely helpful and attentive. Location is close to the key landmarks of Paris. Excellent breakfast a la carte serving in a gorgeous restaurant overlooking historic rue de Rivoli.
After being at a wonderful small hotel and then traveling in the countryside, my 12 year old daughter and I returned to Paris for a grand finale at Le Meurice for a couple of nights at New Year's Eve. It was important to me that we choose a hotel that was a classic representation of Paris. This hotel does not disappoint. From the moment we stepped onto the sidewalk from our car, we were welcomed and cared for. We had arrived hours before check-in, but the hotel was ready and expecting us, and prepared to entertain my daughter while I did a Clignancourt shopping trip. The staff were so warm and gracious. When I returned from shopping, a team of staff members helped us to move into our room. For anyone who is afraid of the so-called rude Parisian stereotype, you will not find it here. We had a mid-tier room, with a very comfortable bed, acres of beautiful marble in the bathroom, wonderful towels and linens, and absolutely no view to speak of. By the end of a day sightseeing in Paris, I was not in need of any view! I was in need of tea and sustenance at Le Dali, and it it did not disappoint! Le Dali is set in a charming and artistic room with a tented ceiling (painted by Philippe Starck's daughter I believe), the tea was prepared perfectly, and the treats arrived promptly (and kept coming - during our stay there seemed to be a specialty served from the chef at almost every meal, all delicious). For New Years Eve I asked the concierge (at around 5 p.m.!) if she had a restaurant recommendation that would be appropriate for us to meet some younger friends that weren't quite up to the price of an Alain Ducasse dinner. The concierge called and made a reservation for us at a very charming bistro within walking distance that was serving a wonderful seafood-oriented prix fixe dinner. Afterwards we returned to the hotel and my daughter and I walked the few steps to the Place de la Concorde to see the fireworks over the Arc de Triomphe, and the Eiffel Tower glittering. The square was alive with food vendors, and just enough action to feel festive without being overwhelming (as it would have been closer to the Arc). Back at the hotel a jazz band was playing and guests were dancing. The doormen were taking their duties seriously and I felt recognized, and safe. No overzealous revelers were going to be allowed to stumble in off the street. Which leads me to a key part of the Le Meurice experience -- as a guest, you will be recognized, and greeted by name. The staff will help you with whatever you need, from a toothbrush to museum tickets. I had to contact the hotel about something after my visit and received a response from manager Franka Holtmann, which was much appreciated. In the restaurants the servers have truly impressive language skills, and I heard guests being spoken to by servers in several languages. At Bar 228 (which is just the right amount of dark and cozy), the bartender was very pleasant about making the special drink I requested, and they brought my daughter a veggie burger (at 10 pm). At breakfast (served in the same room as the famous Alain Ducasse dinners), they knew what an American would want for breakfast, and they were prepared to serve it. It was a great way to start each day, served in a room of classic (and glittering) 18th century style beauty (in contrast to the almost art nouveau qualities of Le Dali). After breakfast, it was a short walk to so many wonderful things to do in Paris - the Tuileries Gardens, the Louvre, the Musee D'Orsay, L'Orangerie, the Grand Palais, Champs Elysee, Place Vendome and the Opera Palais Garnier (which is worth a visit to see not just the Chagall ceiling, but all the ceilings). The skip the line tickets available at the hotel were a huge help, as the winter holidays are a busy time in Paris. After visiting all of that, you can stop at Angelina for hot chocolate, which is right next door. So, I could have paid more and gotten a larger room or a suite with a view, but really, I think this hotel is so much more than a view, it is a wonderful world of its own.
Wow! Perfection exist. The name is Meurice Hotel. Is the definition of perfection. Everything is amazing. From the moment you step in until you check out. Love the scient from the common area, love the attitude of the staff, the confort of the room.
We are staying 6 nights here and love it so far. It’s beautiful, the rooms are exactly the way they look in the photos (we are in 318), the staff are all so sweet and lovely. The hotel bar is gorgeous and the hotel restaurant (Dali) was nice too. Two particular standouts should be noted.One, we arrived at 8am after a flight from Sydney Australia. We knew checkin was 3pm and had no expectation of the room being ready before then. We believed we’d have to suck it up and cope with roaming the streets in our tired states until then and were prepared for that. Instead we were told that while our room wasn’t ready we could stay in another room until our room was ready. That is such wonderful service. It was amazing to be able to have a shower and change my clothes in the comfort of a room at the hotel that was at our disposal until our actual room became ready (which was early at around midday). We appreciated this so much. What a great way to make a wonderful first impression.Second - my husband managed to gouge his finger with his razor blade within an hour of our arrival. We were really worried about it. The concierges were so wonderful in helping us and showed such concern. It was so sweet and helpful and just what we needed. They set up an appointment at a medical centre for us on that very day where there was an English speaking nurse and doctor. I can’t emphasise the degree of genuine care and concern the concierge showed - it was so lovely. Then, the doctor wanted my husband to have a tetanus shot and the pharmacist told us these were “missing” in every pharmacy in Paris - which caused me great anxiety. We explained this to a concierge who got straight on the phone to the pharmacist and arranged for the vaccine to be available.I am really adoring this hotel and our stay here and will absolutely return here.
