It's a delight to be right by the leafy Jardin des Tuileries - perfect for that romantic stroll beside the River Seine.
You can't get more central than this; you're right by the Musée du Louvre, Palais Royal and fashionable rue Saint Honoré. Musée d'Orsay is just across the Seine.

Style & Character
Perfect for lovers, gastronomes, flâneurs, devotees of the serious spa, couples and families with something to celebrate: anyone who adores the finer things in life. We loved the sense of heritage; this is a hotel where Picasso held his wedding lunch, Coco Chanel put on fashion shows and everyone from Queen Victoria to Beyoncé has checked in.
