When my husband and I moved to Amsterdam, we had planned many trips. For his 60th, which was Nov 15th 2022, we planned a fabulous celebration. We would go to Paris again, but stay at one of the most luxurious hotels. We decided on the Plaza Athenee and I was not disappointed. When I arrived there was champagne and a gift for my husband, which was an amazing thought. After finding out that my husband had passed, the staff was comforting and accommodating. They made the experience even better. I had dinner at Le Relais and enjoyed every bite. The entire staff and even a guest help me celebrate my late husband in style, class and luxury.
It has been 6 years since last stay at this property........ As with many, COVID created a long pause in our overseas travel. I wrote about how EXCELLENT this property was 6 years ago. It is as FABULOUS as ever! Just finished a week there and everything....... rooms, food, people, service was superb. If you are looking for a great luxury hotel is Paris--- this is hard to beat.
Not much to say, this is really one of the best properties in Paris. Absolute tier 1 service, amazing rooms (although old-school) and good views either towards the streets or into the lovely courtyard. Lovely spa and decent gym. Breakfast is great, especially the bread basket but service was somewhat spotty given they did not have enough staff for the guests on some of the mornings and special requests were slightly more difficult to process. Slept like an angel and enjoyed a really top notch room service as well, beautiful china and cutlery and stunningly presented quality food - excellent choices. Smooth check out and help with luggage etc. as you would expect
Very excited to take a much deserved tea break in the foyer at the Plaza today. We ordered a tea, a water and une tarte aux peche. After being served our tea and water,we waited for 30 minutes and the tarte never showed up. It very conveniently showed up on the l’addition. When we bought it to the server’s notice, the hostess ( who took our order ) conveniently showed up with it. Alas our afternoon experience was ruined and we asked her to cancel the order. Later when my wife used the toilette next to the Spa in the lobby, she was aghast to find it extremely dirty. It’s a pity that standards of hygiene and service at the Plaza Athenee have slipped to such lows.
Hôtel Plaza Athénée is in an unbeatable area of Paris. From the moment you walk in, you are greeted with typical Parisian high-service. The staff here are attuned to listen to clients and deliver a top-tier experience. The lobby restaurant had great food, and the the Rose Royal was a wonderful drink. If you like fashion, this is the region to be in!
Unreal service. Best hotel ever, anywhere. Front office staff genius all around. And that amber smell in the reception area! Omg. Had to buy some of that and bring it home. Amazing. Real risk to this hallowed place is the Dorchester Collection ownership. Nowadays, you can feel the corporate hand in various places: for example, bathrobes used to be from a French supplier. Now from a generic dorchester collection place. Same robes as they have at their other properties. And same as most hotels. Bring back the French supplier! Plaza needs its own robes. Also the coffee!! Used to be made The old fashioned way. Sublime taste and texture. Now you can tell they have an automated machine (like most places). Generic coffee is the most beautiful breakfast room in the world? Noooo! And please, keep the corporate people away from the bakery. Still producing unreal pastries. And the Relais plaza restaurant still going strong with a new chef. Amazing pate and tomato pie. Don’t believe me? Try it. And not expensive either. I wish I lived there. It’s that good!…
The view is unbeatable but the room condition is very normal compared to the price paid. We have been waiting for 3 hours to check in after the scheduled check in hour. Thus our dinner appointment has to be postponed. And there is an additional 129.5Eur under "contribution employe" upon checkout, the staff had never informed us this is optional and just included it in the final invoice. We only found out from booking site later that this isn't part of tax or room charger they agree with. We have tried to contact Hotel Plaza Athenee for a clarification, but we didn't receive any reply after 7 days.
Iconic Hotel in Paris, Incredible staff, outstanding room, best concierge team, great location. My room view was facing the Ave du montage balcony, it was spacious for a couple or for a family of three. The concierge team helped us to find everything we needed. The hotel is located near the luxury designers brand stores in Paris.
Hotel is simply beautiful. Location is hard to beat. Got a triple upgrade upon arrival to a stunning suite. Everything was perfect, from front desk personnel , perfect and sumptuous breakfast, extremely cleanness everywhere . The only complain that I could hear noises from the rooms upstairs so sound proofing is not as great. Room service food was amazing and the views are magical . Will def return .
45 minutes to receive a glass of wine and a cocktail. The staff are so scared of the bratty customers they have no idea if they are coming or going. We would never stay here after experiencing the calamitous service and bratty clientele. One guest actually said ‘you better watch out’ to a member of staff after he seemingly lost his table.
