Named after the 4th Earl of Bristol, a traveller whose love of comfort and high standards was legendary, Le Bristol opened its doors during the Roaring Twenties just as Paris became a hub of culture, art and celebrity. The hotel's celebrated art de vivre continues. Fine dining is close to the hotel's heart and they are justifiably proud of their four Michelin stars. Epicure is the hotel's triple Michelin-starred gastronomic restaurant, sitting adjacent to the French-style garden and overseen by Chef Eric Frechon. The hotel also now has a fourth Michelin star for its brasserie, 114 Faubourg, where Chef Eric Desbordes reigns.
The 188 rooms are spacious, light and elegantly furnished in classic 18th century style, with original paintings and beautiful fabrics reflecting the exquisite taste of its art collector family owners. Children are well looked after, with cuddly toys, welcome booklet, childrens' bathroom amenities, a specially designed menu, treasure hunt, as well their own club, Les Amis d'Hippolyte. Classic in style yet bang up-to-date, the hotel is timelessly elegant with a guest list to match and located in an area noted for the boutiques that make Paris the world's haute couture capital.
