Hotel Plaza Athenee

Paris, France

Why You Will Love It

Hotel Plaza Athenee simply projects luxury and elegance – and that only makes sense considering its location on the prestigious Avenue Montaigne near Dior, Valentino, Chanel, and Louis Vuitton.

True to its extraordinary city, Hôtel Plaza Athénée is no ordinary hotel. Here, on prestigious avenue Montaigne, the tree-lined boulevard of French fashion, the hotel has proudly offered guests the best of Paris since 1913.

Defining Factor

The hotel is simply made to be photographed, with its views of the Eiffel Tower and La Cour Jardin, our oasis of greenery, and even the 1,900 red geraniums gracing the façade. Inside, chic Art Deco and classical Parisian rooms are each as unique as the city that surrounds them. This is where a century of designers and artists have found their inspiration, including Christian Dior, who chose to open his first spa at our hotel.

Don't Leave Without

At Dior Spa au Plaza Athénée, you’re invited to a world of bliss, where a philosophy focused on reactivating youthfulness delivers both instant and long-lasting results.Tranquil treatment rooms, steam rooms and a relaxation room create a haven of calm away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
