Hotel de Crillon

Paris, France

SWIPE THROUGH GALLERY

"The perfect balance of French opulence and contemporary luxury."

vibe

Parisian Chic. From the moment I arrived at the hotel, I was completely blown away. It was Christmastime, and the towering white Christmas trees framed the entrance to the most beautiful building on the Place de la Concorde. The head butler Alexei greeted me upon arrival, reminding me that we last met in Turks and Caicos a few years ago, when he was working at a property there. I was speechless, and continued to be surprised by these special little touches throughout my stay.

rooms

Even the entry room has gorgeous high ceilings, beautiful marble bathrooms (the hotel uses 55 different types of marble throughout the property!), and the yummiest beds you'll ever see or sleep in. The hotel partners with Saatchi and Saatchi to display unique works of art in each room, and special little touches included having my initials embroidered onto the pillow cases as well as hand towels in the bathroom, a full complimentary minibar (including select alcoholic beverages in the suites), and whimsical board games and yo-yos and books placed around the rooms. They even have little models of their antique house car, which they incorporated into the welcome amenity, crafting a chocolate replica of the car along with a mallet and a note that said "Break Me." However, nothing beats the 3 bedroom Karl Lagerfeld suite, whose master bedroom has a bookshelf that magically opens into a walk-in closet, and whose master bathtub was actually lifted by a crane and slid onto a giant block of ice in order to get it into the upper floor bathroom. I deem it the most beautiful bathroom in Paris, and I challenge anyone who has seen it to disagree.

pool & gym

The pool is subterranean, but the designers cleverly included a skylight to let in natural light, which brings out the soft cream of the chairs and the beautiful blue and gold touches on the wall. The gym is close by, filled with the latest equipment to help you burn off that extra Pierre Herme macaron should you decide to indulge a little bit (it IS Paris after all!).

spa

After running around Paris to get all of your shopping done, you must come and relax at Sense Spa. I had a deep-tissue massage, and my therapist was incredible. The facilities themselves were so spacious, more like a spa-suite than a treatment room. The boutique also had a few excellent pieces that caught my eye. I realized later on in the day I had left my earrings in a corner of the bathroom, but didn't bother to say anything about it, and they still managed to magically appear back in my room by the time I came back from dinner!

restaurant

The fine dining restaurant, L'Ecrin, has a chef who has been with the hotel since before the renovation, and who has traveled around the world during the 4 years of the hotel's closure to perfect his culinary prowess. A fun touch of the place settings in this restaurant is that the wine glasses have stems and no base - another legacy of Marie Antoinette, the ultimate reveler, who designed the glass so that they would not be put down until they were empty. I had breakfast in the restaurant my first morning, and the menu was excellent, with many healthy options like fresh pressed juices, as well as gourmet items such as eggs with shaved truffles. They did not yet have a buffet option, but that is to develop in the coming months. Another plus is that breakfast is served 24hrs through room service, and this is included in your Virtuoso/Rosewood Elite amenity!

bar

The bar at the hotel, Les Ambassadeurs, is in what used to be the fine dining room at the previous iteration of the Crillon. They kept all of the beautiful elements of the former dining room but brought it into the 21st century, and it has become a favorite with visitors and locals alike. They have a signature cocktail, called the 10, an homage to the hotel's address at 10 Place de la Concorde. It is an intoxicating mixture, with cognac, port, lime cordial, and orange liqueur. This is also available as part of the pre-mixed cocktail selection in the room minibars (complimentary for those staying suites). Another they did that I loved was the chamomile tea service at turndown. This was an especially nice surprise my first evening, when I didn't land in Paris until midnight, and was so happy to find it placed thoughtfully on my nightstand, welcoming me to bed.

kids

Rosewood is a great family-friendly brand, and The Crillon is no different. Friendly service, along with a bunch of suites and connecting room options make this a no-brainer for families.

getting there

You could not be more central in Paris, walking distance from the Louvre and the Musee D'Orsay, as well as all of the great shops by the Opera. I took an Uber from Paris Orly, which only came out to 40EUR.

Agent Tips

Rather than go to Cafe Angelina or Cafe de Flore for their "famous" hot chocolates, order it with the room service here. The chef creates his own concoction of various special chocolates, and in my opinion it rivals any of the best in Europe.

The bath amenities make for a great something to take home, made exclusively for Hotel de Crillon by Buly. The packaging is beautiful, it smells amazing, and the soap dish was even molded exactly to the shape of the soap.
