Hôtel de Crillon, a Rosewood Hotel

Near the Champs-Élysées, the Hôtel de Crillon, a Rosewood Hotel is one of the world’s oldest Palace hotels

Opened in 1909, this hotel at 10 Place de la Concorde underwent extensive renovation from 2013 to 2017. Architect Robert Martinet enhanced the 18th century building, with its listed facades and salons originally created by Ange-Jacques Gabriel.

A balance between tradition and modernity, this century-old 16,749 m2 hotel offers 78 rooms (between 32 and 45 m2), 36 suites and 10 Signature suites (between 51 and 350 m2) with marble bathrooms, mirrors with built-in televisions, high-end bedding, a butler service and more. Masterminded by decorator Aline Asmar d’Amman, the interior design is an homage to French savoir faire. On the 4th floor, the Grands Appartements conceived by Karl Lagerfeld offer stunning views of the City of Light. These two exceptional suites blend the fashion designer’s chic, modern vision with the history of the Palace. The hotel’s suites, some boasting terraces, strive for the utmost beauty and refinement, with bespoke art and furniture in the Suite Jardin and meticulously-restored original decor in the Suite Marie-Antoinette and the Suite Duc de Crillon.

Frequented by celebrities from all over the world and steeped in history, the legendary Hôtel de Crillon, a Rosewood Hotel knows how to provide the utmost comfort for its guests with a range of amenities: a spa offering traditional beauty rituals, a pool beneath a sumptuous skylight, a hair salon, a 24-hour fitness studio, luxury cars and chauffeurs on request and more.

It is worth noting that the hotel’s historic salons can be hired as event venues equipped with cutting-edge technology.

A Michelin-starred gastronomic restaurant and a French brasserie

L’Ecrin, directed by chef Christopher Hache, bears a Michelin star. This gastronomic restaurant can seat 26 in a contemporary and refined setting and serves inventive and delicate cuisine inspired by the chef’s many travels throughout the world. In the wine cellar, 43,000 bottles have been selected by sommelier Xavier Thuizat from some of the world’s greatest vineyards.

At Brasserie d’Aumont, chef Justin Schmitt invites guests to rediscover classical French cuisine. The Brasserie’s Crudo Bar even offers oysters fresh from Finistère, farmed specially for the hotel.

For afternoon tea, visit Jardin d’Hiver for a taste of ‘Le Goûter des Ducs’, an homage to Marie-Antoinette prepared by the hotel’s pastry chef Pablo Gicquel.

Les Ambassadeurs, the hotel’s cocktail bar with a view of the Obelisk in the Place de la Concorde, offers over 130 champagnes in a musical atmosphere created by live concerts.
