Hôtel Le Meurice

First Arrondissement
FINE HOTELS & RESORTS MEMBER

There is first the location: front and center on the Rue de Rivoli, across from the Tuileries and steps from the Louvre. It can be busy on those streets (the line to get into Angelina’s alone can get frustrating) but once inside, the Meurice is perfection. The Philippe Starck–designed public areas have added a contemporary twist to the hotel, even though the rooms, including the recently renovated Pompadour Suite, are still hallmarks of the opulent Louis XVI style. Stay in one night and have dinner from Alain Ducasse’s Michelin two-star kitchen and don’t miss tea time in Restaurant Le Dalí, where you can sample pâtissier Cedric Grolet’s innovative takes on the classics, like a lemon tart flecked with finger lime and a St. Honoré with honey. (Rooms, from $895)
