Freshly renovated and recently awarded the distinction of “Palace” hotel, this icon of French neo-classicism epitomises timeless chic, reinventing a fresh Parisian spirit set between the 18th century and contemporary avant-garde.

The art of detail

It is often the small details that make a big difference. Art books and carefully selected ornaments: in the 78 Deluxe rooms, the intimate decor perfectly captures the essence of Parisian style. Originally a mansion house, the Hotel de Crillon preserves the connection with its origins as a private residence, commissioned by King Louis XV.

Chez Marie-Antoinette

The ten Signature Suites embody the new spirit of this historic Palace: contemporary elegance is fused with French classicism. For instance, in the suite Marie-Antoinette the elegant decor in pearl grey and powder pink recalls the 18th century vogue for these graceful colours.

A room with a view

It boasts a private terrace of 238m² with a stunning view over the Place de la Concorde and the Eiffel Tower. It’s impossible not to feel Parisian (or Parisienne) with this breath-taking panorama.

Nestled in the attic, three rooms have been designed as an invitation to experience the bohemian world of Paris artists. An homage to writers, artists and painters who have been inspired by the city of lights, the rooms are aesthetical and luxurious.
