Le Meurice Hotel in Paris, a Style Redolent of Louis XVI


Le Meurice Hotel in Paris has an unrivaled hotel location opposite the Tuileries Gardens and is a short stroll from Le Louvre in Central Paris.

The hotel is all about opulence and comfort — every room and suite is a spacious, peaceful oasis of calm, providing guests with the ultimate in luxury.

Each of the seven floors has a distinct style, with 160 beautifully appointed rooms decorated in a style redolent of Louis XVI. All rooms feature exquisite marble bathrooms with shower and bath.

The hotel has five especially adapted rooms for disabled guests with full facilities, as well as a special entrance in the hotel lobby.  They also provide custom bath products by Penhaligon’s and other personal accessories, and a twice daily maid service, including evening turndown.

Hotel Le Meurice also has two fine-dining restaurants on-site: Restaurant le Meurice (see our write up on it here), which overlooks the Tuileries Garden, and REstaurant Le Dali, which is fitted out under a monumental canvas (145 square meters / 1560 square feet) painted by famous designer Philippe Starck’s daughter, Ara Starck.

They also have a bar on site: Bar 228, which has a nice intimate atmosphere, where the decor is filled with deep leather armchairs and dark woodwork which make an ideal setting for socializing, people watching and enjoying exclusive cocktails. Oh so very Paris, oh so very trendy.

Highly acclaimed by food writers worldwide, three michelin star Chef Yannick Alleno cooks on-site. Rigorous and inventive, he only works with the best of Parisian products coming from the French terroir.
