There are few Parisian addresses more enviable than that shared by La Réserve - a 19th-century hotel separated from the Champs-Élysées only by the Jardins des Champs-Élysées. It is not hard to understand why it is so beloved by A-listers and keen shoppers alike: this hotel emanates Belle Époque glamour and calm in equally expert measure.
Opulent salons with deep armchairs, roaring fires and gilded antiques serve a generous dose of grandeur; while its spa, indoor pool (hard to find, in Paris), wine cellars and two sharp restaurants (one Michelin-starred), make an authoritatively polished mark.
Nor can La Réserve’s apartment-style rooms and suites fail to impress, each an utterly chic creation full of sleek marble, ornate damask, velvet accents. Contemporary yet exquisitely characterful, all have dedicated butlers and many possess magnificent views of the Eiffel Tower. A masterly establishment, as intoxicating as the city itself.
