A storied hotel with Parisian chic . Appearances in Sex and the City and The Devil Wears Prada put this ultra-luxe hotel on the radar of the world’s mainstream.
But, its connection to the world of fashion, and haute living run much deeper than that. Christian Dior named his collections after the hotel and launched his first fashion show within its opulent interiors. Marlene Dietrich and French actor Jean Gabin lived out their much-publicized Romance here, and Le Relais Plaza was the venue of choice for American troops after some R&R during the war. Nowadays, the Hôtel Plaza Athenée is still the hotel of choice for the city’s fashionistas and local elite. You can spot them dining at the excellent Michelin-starred Alain Ducasse restaurant, or sauntering past in the Dior Institut Spa ( the first of its kind in a hotel.) A prime location on Avenue Montaigne puts many of the cities leading fashion boutiques within walking distance ( yes, that includes the Christian Dior flagship) and touches like a harpist providing mood music in the halls, and those signature red awnings, give it a unique feel. For some of the best views over Paris a hotel room can provide, the Plaza’s Signature Eiffel Suite is second to none.

Located on the rarified Avenue Montaigne, this is high-roller territory, as evidenced by the liveried footmen who bestow access to everything from the hotel to the high-end designer boutiques lining the avenue. Snob appeal aside, there are plenty of top-tier museums within walking distance and you’re only minutes away from the Champs-Élysées and romantic strolls along the Seine. It’s just a 5-minute walk to Alma-Marceau and Franklin D. Roosevelt metro stations.
Dining can be a wallet-draining affair around here, however, aside from nearby sidewalk cafés, you can still find places that won’t make you blanche. Open all day, Bread and Roses (9-minute drive) is the perfect spot for a salad, sandwich, fresh quiche of the day and very good desserts. At La Maison de l’Aubrac (7-minute walk) you can dine with the locals on steak tartare, homemade foie gras and all the French classics.
Besides a glass of wine at a café terrace, never a bad idea in warm weather, the best bars around are in pricey hotels (Georges V, Prince des Galles, etc.). That said, Mini-Palais’s (11-minute walk) sprawling terrace and late hours make it a fine spot for a cocktail, or you can always pop over to the Crazy Horse Saloon (4-minute walk), a few minutes away, for some lascivious entertainment with your champagne.
