Shangri-La Paris

Paris, France

Eiffel Tower views, 18th-century architecture and an elegantly melded East-meets-West philosophy – there’s a lot to love at the Shangri-La Paris. The Hong Kong luxury brand strayed from its typical signature style when taking on this history-filled pad: the brand's first European address is a dazzling dalliance into the past. Formerly a palace owned by Napoleon’s grand-nephew, the building boasts vaulted ceilings, a world-famous stairway, marble at every corner and striking stained glass windows. Reopened under the Shangri-La name in 2010, that regal character was rigorously preserved, with only light touches like silk wallpaper and high-tech bathrooms added to 100 rooms (of which nearly half eyeball the Tour Eiffel), melding the Hong Kong hotel behemoth's intimate, elegant style with classical, regal beauty. More typical Shangri-La pizzazz shines in the dining department. Locals rave about Shang Palace – the first Cantonese spot to earn a Michelin star in France – while Christophe Moret’s culinary oversight of both L’Abeille and La Bauhinia have earned further acclaim. Those tower views, and the hotel’s proximity to top sites, has made it a hotspot for anniversary stays and proposal city breaks – evident in the Botaniste bar being a romantic rendezvous spot of choice for doe-eyed couples.
