FINE HOTELS & RESORTS MEMBER

A major renovation and expansion in 2014 has given this grand dame on Avenue Montaigne, near Fendi, Valentino, and Dior, a new lease on life. The verdant courtyard and geranium planted exterior remain, but guest rooms by Marie-José Pommereau feature warm tones and sumptuous materials like damask and embroidery, and the Michelin three-star Alain Ducasse restaurant has a glittering ’60s-inspired interior by Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku that features banquettes in stainless “domes” and solid oak tables. Le Bar serves some of the world’s most inventive—and beautiful—cocktails in hand-blown Murano glasses: Think Bellini martini popsicles and Cosmopolitan jelly shots. For a next-day detox, there’s a Dior Institut spa downstairs offering an exclusive deep tissue massage technique. (Rooms, from $905)
