Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • World-renowned hotel exuding classic Parisian style
  • Gorgeous, luxurious rooms and suites
  • Fabulous Golden Triangle location with views of the Eiffel Tower
  • Walking distance to high-end designer shops
  • Access to the Dior Institute for a range of spa and beauty treatments
  • 6 restaurants and bars including the Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athenee
  • Flat-screen TVs
  • Bathrobes, slippers, and marble bathrooms with tub/shower combos
  • Business center and large, modern fitness center
  • Some suites have Eiffel Tower views; some have balconies

Cons

  • Luxury comes at a high price
  • Daily fee for Wi-Fi
  • Hallway and neighboring room noise can be heard at times

Bottom Line

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.

A prime spot on ritzy avenue Montaigne, steps from designer shops and close to L'Arc de Triomphe
