What's Special About Le Bristol:
Guest Rooms at Le Bristol:
- 161 guest rooms
- Period furniture from the 18th century, a plush bed in muted jewel tones and an overall Parisian parlor ambiance in my huge room made me feel like I was stepping back in time at this posh Paris address.
- The spacious mirrored marble bathroom off the boudoir, stocked with decadent Hermes orange flower-scented products, was the perfect place for readying myself to emerge into Le Bristol's haute-society lounges and gardens on the ground floor.
- My room looked onto the hotel's inner courtyard garden, so there was no street noise to hamper the elegant quietesse of the place.
- Rates: $$$$$

Dining at Le Bristol:
- My summertime stay meant I was privvy to one of Paris' most esteemed dining experience -- eating under a parasol in Le Bristol's beautiful garden courtyard (the glassy conservatorium is an elegant alternative on rainy days).
- Winter dining takes place surrounded by Baccarat crystal chandeliers and ornate tapestries in a sumptuous space that was formerly a private theater.
- The restaurant has two Michelin stars and tres Francais menus always reflect the season, with game in the autumn months and seasonal vegetables come spring.
Activities and Amenities at Le Bristol:
- The hotel's ANNE SEMONI Spa is a pampering place for the Paris elite, with 60-minute pedicures by Bastien Gonzales the legendary treatment.
- I felt like I was on the pool deck of a restored yacht at the hotel's swimming pool, where nautical murals and sleek wood decks and walls are haute-mariner style all the way. The pool is enclosed in a solarium, and I was disappointed that the only place for sunbathing outdoors was a small deck with just a few chairs.
- 10,764 square feet of meeting and event space includes five super-luxe function rooms that can host up to 500 guests.
Good to Know About Le Bristol:
- I appreciated being able to pop into the small business lounge, where computers offered free internet access -- a better option than the wifi available in the rooms, where daily rates are through the roof.
- Forget booking an airport taxi with the hotel - you'll pay exponentially more for the service, and taxis pass frequently on the busy street just outside the hotel's door (it's about 50 euros to CDG airport).
- Food and drink in the hotel are very, very expensive - with the exchange rate, think upwards of $40 for a club sandwich from room service. More reasonable bistros and cafes are a short walk away.
