The Plaza Athénée hotel is located on the famous Avenue Montaigne, the Mecca of Parisian fashion, showcase of the most famous luxury shops. The Champs Elysées is only few minutes away, as the Eiffel Tower is, on the other end, on the left bank of the Seine. Its history is intimately tied to the Dior brand. Monsieur Christian Dior was a regular customer, having opened its historic boutique next to it. The Plaza Athénée belongs to the very closed circle of Parisian palaces, like Le Meurice (the other Paris hotel belonging to the Dorchester Collection), Le Bristol, Park Hyatt Vendôme, Le Four Seasons George V, the Mandarin Oriental, Le Royal Monceau and the Shangri-La.
154 rooms and 54 suites that are available to allow hotel guests to enjoy the palace experience. The rooms overlook the inner courtyard of the hotel or the Avenue Montaigne. Some suites have a direct view over the Eiffel Tower which can be admired through a framed window, like a living masterpiece changing during the day. Each room at the Plaza Athénée is uniquely decorated with beautiful period furniture sourced from antique shops by Marie-José Pommereau (designer of the hotel). We thus find there all the warmth of an authentic Parisian apartment.
The Plaza Athénée is particularly suited to welcome families with many connecting rooms and a number of attentions and activities to the youngest. From the baby sitting to the concierge, the hotel offers a number of services to families.
The complete hotel catering offering is under the management of Alain Ducasse, one of the most famous chefs in the world. The restaurant Alain Ducasse at the Plaza Athénée is a three star restaurant. You can taste there the quintessence of French cuisine. Famous Parisian brasserie managed by the iconic Werner Kuchler, Le Relais Plaza is a fashionable place where people come to enjoy fine cuisine in a beautiful Art Deco setting. In the gallery, one can discover the desserts of Pastry World Champion, Christophe Michalak, including its famous tea time which includes all its finest creations.
Another unique place in the hotel, the Plaza Athénée Bar, with its woodwork and its warped ceiling, offers a unique setting perfect for encounters and recreation. Flash codes allow guests to directly place orders from their smartphones.
The Plaza Athénée is the only hotel to feature a Dior spa. Customers can therefore benefit from exclusive and personalized treatments. Indeed, each treatment begins with a skin diagnosis to find out the most appropriate treatment. All treatments are delivered with Dior products. The hotel also has a fitness room where a coach is available to set a personalized training program.
You can get to the Plaza Athénée in less than 45 minutes from Roissy airport. The hotel can arrange transfer with a limousine.
