How shocked were we to find Hotel De Crillon will close next year 2013 for a complete refurb. expected to take 2 years,
We have been staying here for maybe 10 years and love it as our bolt hole in Paris.
Our dilemma where shall we stay in the meantime? Why? because we love this hotel, yes its expensive I am sure that a great room can be found for half the price, but where would you find decor like this ? Rooms thats are spacious and bathrooms to die for, we can only hope the refurb doesn't over run and the new Crillon is as before. We hope that we shall find the marble still gleaming as usual and the same staff who are so fantastic waiting to greet us again.Nothing is too much trouble for them and our great friend Thioulf on the front desk always greats you with a smile.
If you can fit in a stay, then do before the hotel closes.

Commissioned by King Louis XV in 1758 and built by Ange-Jacques Gabriel, the greatest architect of his time, it would later come to be the personal residence of the family of the Count of Crillon before becoming a palace hotel in 1909. Over the years, this legendary palace has captivated generations of guests including royalty, heads of state and luminaries drawn to the City of Light. Located at 10 Place de la Concorde in the heart of Paris, Hotel de Crillon’s past provides a rich backdrop to its modern-day story.
