I've stayed at the Le Pavillon de la Reine three times in the past 10 months, with plans to be there again twice in April 2014. It is, quite simply, one of the finest hotels I have ever stayed at.
Located on Place des Vosges (arguably the prettiest Place in Paris) in the heart of the Marais (arguably the most interesting and alive part of Paris - esp for history, culture, food, shopping, and central to the rest of Paris - PDLR (shorthand) is first class in every way. From the stunning courtyard as you enter from the Place - a courtyard always featuring wonderful, whimsical sculpture from the art gallery next door - to the elegant and serene living room with an excellent honor bar just inside the front door (graced by beautiful orchids), to the welcome at the front desk, the entire initial impression is very magical. Oh, and it's next to impossible to carry your own bags from the cab, as the bell service is wonderfully attentive and professional
As for the property itself, as the name implies, it was indeed a royal living quarter of sorts, dating from Louis XIV. But it's been thoroughly updated, without losing any charm. Every room I've stayed in (a superior and two different Jr Suites) has been unique and delightful . Excellent bathrooms and beds, very tasteful decor, and all with huge French windows opening out onto either the outer courtyard or an inner one
Little details abound - a wonderful honor bar; an excellent breakfast (optional), a great spa, a bottle of wine upon arrival, super-fast internet (free) ......
Last, the service is superb across the board. But a special mention must be made of the concierge service, in particular M Rudy Weber and M Arnould. There is no impossible request that they cannot fulfill, and fulfill in style. Simply awesome
Do not miss this gem if in Paris
