A prime spot on ritzy avenue Montaigne, steps from designer shops and close to L'Arc de Triomphe
On the famous Avenue Montaigne in the 8th arrondissement, the luxury Hotel Plaza Athenee is just steps from the Champs Elysees and the Theatre des Champs Elysee. Guests will know they've arrived when the hotel's iconic red awnings and chestnut trees come into view.
Within walking distance are Paris's most exclusive designer shops, including Christian Dior, Chanel, Max Mara, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Céline, Valentino, Calvin Klein and Hermes. It's a shopper's paradise here, but that's not all -- the hotel is walkable to the Grand Palais, the Theatre des Champs-Elysees, and L'Arc de Triomphe, among many restaurants and cafes.
The world-renowned luxury hotel Plaza Athenee -- a part of the Dorchester Collection -- is synonymous with Parisian elegance and good taste. Iconic red awnings and chestnut trees welcome guests to the historic setting, on the upscale Avenue Montaigne location with direct views of the Eiffel Tower. It's all about luxury here, inside and out. The avenue is lined with high-end shops such as Christian Dior (guests have access to the Dior Institute for a full range of quality beauty and spa treatments), Prada, and Chanel. And inside, the 146 rooms and 45 suites are decorated in classic Art Deco style with modern touches like flat-screen TVs and marble baths. With six distinct restaurants, a large fitness center, and a can't-miss daily breakfast in a leafy garden, the Plaza Athenee doesn't miss a beat. But it comes at a high price -- and Wi-Fi isn't even included in that cost.
