The renowned luxury hotel, Plaza Atheneea 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 with direct views of the Eiffel Tower. It’s all about luxury — 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 beauty and spa treatments), Prada, and Chanel. And inside, the 146 rooms and 45 suites feature modern touches like flat-screen TVs and marble baths. Plus, the Art Deco Suites were recently updated with state-of-the art bedside lamps designed to cure jet lag symptoms through soothing lights and sounds, and other suites are now hooked up with high-def music systems. 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. Check out more amazing photos of the hotel after the jump or read the full review here >>
