“Charming Hotel in a Great Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

This hotel is well located in a great part of Paris. It's on one of the main high end shopping streets and is very central so easy to get to any of the tourist attractions around the city. The service is excellent. In particular the concierge who really went way beyond what I'd usually expect from a 5 star hotel. The rooms are traditional but very luxurious. Room service is excellent but quite over priced!

Our trip in September to The Plaza Athénéé was exceptional in every category reflecting classic luxury style and lovely relaxed sophistication! Besides a great location, the entire Concierge Staff is outstanding – warm, welcoming, efficient and attentive to details requested, they were extremely accommodating making the best recommendations for restaurants and cafes while considering our dietary needs. The rooms are superbly well appointed with tasteful décor and comfortable. One of the managers, Sébastien Chebaiki is top notch in trouble shooting any situation with finesse and responding with such grace making guests feel very welcomed as if you are at home. He really knows how to make a guest feel welcomed and cared for. This was our first stay at Plaza Athénéé and we will be returning many times again. We travel extensively and unlike our very disappointing experience at the Four Seasons Hotel George V on our previous trip to Paris whose service and room appointments was less than adequate, the Plaza Athénéé exceeded our expectations and we were able to decompress from our very busy life in New York. We look forward to seeing the renovations soon!

This hotel is the epitome of Parisian luxury. Get a room with a view of the Eiffel Tower! Near exclusive shopping. The hotel sent up chocolates with American flags and congratulated us, as Americans, on the 4th of July! The staff was very friendly (none of that famous Parisian aloofness.) The food in the hotel restaurant was excellent. Our bed was very comfortable. Worth every penny.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the Eiffel Tower.

Stay in this hotel in summer. The service is excellent, the bellboy help with my bag, once I arrived in their hotel ( very rare in Paris, normally I have to carry it myself, even in other 6 stars hotel!). The concierge always try to help, I got my ticket for a play from their concierge. The room is very artistic and yet cozy and bright. The breakfast is fresh and yummy.
The hotel was full, but I can tell that the staff try their best to help on what you need.
The location, ooh location is perfect! Your in the middle of city surrounded with all high end boutiques and top cafés. You can easily stroll out and enjoy your afternoon, no need taxi or scary metro to go elsewhere.
Not mention their amazing resto in plaza athenee hotel, food was overwhelming great, wine, presentation, decoration, and ambience it's excellent! I still dreaming about it!
I had the best stay in Paris in this hotel! Bravo to all the staffs and management!
Absolutely will come back and recommended!

Just go, you will not be disappointed.
I would go back tomorrow but unfortunately they are closed until spring 2013.
They make you feel at home. The staff is wonderful!
They treat you like family.
Great location as well.
Do not hesitate, just go.

Arriving at the.Plaza Athenee, is definetly the best experience, they remember your name, bring you your favorite drink and put the fruit you like in your room without asking. The lobby bar a and Le Bar are always filled with very nice people. Ever time you leave your room, they refresh it. Their Concierge department gets you always into the best restaurants in the city. Alain Ducasse has a restaurant there, what else can I say?, they service is impeccable. it's worth going to Paris, just to experience this Jewel.

I was elated when I checked into the Hotel Plaza Athenee and was told after 11 hours and one connection that our room was ready for us, and even better that we'd been upgraded to a suite . . . this meant two bedrooms (one for our two boys and one for me and my husband, and two bathrooms). It was like going back in time . . . and truly heightened the experience of being in Paris - so much better than the backpacking trip 20+ years ago! The breakfast was amazing . . . and every morning a new little chocolate surprise. Since we were there over Easter, the chocolate and pastries were ALMOST to beautiful to eat - but my sons will confirm their deliciousness . . . not a morsel was left. I almost forgot to mention that at check-in they delivered warm chocolate chip cookies for the boys and a bottle of champagne for the parents.
The staff and especially the concierges are terrific - with the children we didn't venture to any of the michelin star restaurants, but they found the perfect pizza place and the best bistros, so everyone was truly happy. They were also able to arrange tickets for the Louvre and the Musee D'Orsay so we didn't have to wait in the long lines, which was well worth the ticket price.

It was wonderful and magical . . . and the best part is that our boys recognized the hotel in the Smurf movie!
