Shangri-La Hotel, Paris
Originally built as the residence of Napoleon’s grand nephew, the newly restored Shangri-La Hotel, Paris offers breathtaking views over the Seine and Eiffel Tower and is within easy reach of the capital’s main cultural attractions. The lobby and public areas reflect the original purpose of the building as a meeting place of the Parisian aristocracy. The plush interiors are the work of renowned designer Pierre-Yves Rochon, and the stately home ambiance is enhanced by the hotel's welcoming team. Even the standard rooms are generously proportioned and offer the latest technology along with thoughtful touches such as heated bathroom floors and mist free mirrors. The 81 rooms and suites also portray the classical French style, encapsulating the charm of a private Parisian residence.
