Le Royal Monceau — Raffles Paris

Splashy, modern Parisian style
Stepping through the traditional, dramatic entrance of Le Royal Monceau — Raffles Paris is like being transported into the imagination of Philippe Starck. In 2010, the famous French designer transformed the legendary palace hotel into a modern and spirited space, making it one of Paris’ most creatively designed hotels. But Starck didn’t completely erase the hotel’s past — you can still see some touches of its original grandeur, including the chandeliers hanging above the lobby’s staircase.  
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • Artists and art aficionados alike will love the hotel's art concierge, who can arrange for cultural outings, and La Librairie des Arts, a contemporary art bookstore filled with more than 700 items, including limited-edition books, art pieces and other unique gifts.
  • This elegant hotel also has its own 99-seat, state-of-the-art private theater, which is called The Katara Cinema.
  • The dining (including the popular Matsuhisa Paris) and drinking (the convivial Le Bar Long) options make Le Royal Monceau a draw.
  • Clarins & myBlend Spa offers a host of treatments as well as the largest pool (at 75 feet long) in a Parisian luxury hotel.
