Why You Will Love It
Dating back to 1835, Le Meurice simply exudes French elegance. From the enviable location on the Rue de Rivoli to the exceptional service to the perfect combination of classic design and contemporary touches, there are many reasons why this hotel has been the host of kings, artists, celebs, and Brownell Travelers for years and years!
The original palace hotel in the heart of historic Paris, Le Meurice with its splendid newly-restored rooms and suites is the very epitome of quiet elegance and is alive with the artist’s soul of wit and magic.
The Style: When you stay at Le Meurice, you know you are in Paris. Traditional French décor (think: Louis XVI-style furniture, gilded accents, and marble) pays homage to the hotel’s rich history while modern pieces (it was recently renovated by acclaimed designer Philippe Stark) keep it current and fresh. And don’t miss the artwork! Inspired by famous guests like Salvador Dali, Le Meurice brings Paris’ artistic history into the design and décor.
So much more than a luxury hotel, this is a gallery, an adventure, and the very first Parisian palace, where the world’s artists and thinkers have found their inspiration.
Here in the heart of historical Paris, the Tuileries Garden is before you, while the city’s iconic landmarks and designer boutiques of Place Vendôme and rue Saint-Honoré are just a few minutes’ walk away. The rooftop garden of our newly-restored Belle Etoile Penthouse Suite with Terrace makes us the only hotel in Paris with 360° views across 18 of the city’s monuments.
