Hôtel de Crillon, a Rosewood Hotel

10 Place de la Concorde, 75008 Paris, France
+33 1 44 71 15 00

This hotel is on our list of The 15 Best Hotels in Paris.

Steeped in history, this Parisian landmark was commissioned by King Louis XV in 1758, though it didn’t open as a hotel until 1909. Since then, it’s seen such notable guests as Franklin D. Roosevelt, Leonard Bernstein, Madonna, and more pass through its doors on Place de la Concorde. Designed in the grand, neoclassical style, it reopened in 2017 as the Hôtel de Crillon after a significant four-year renovation, which revamped most of the public spaces in the luxurious 124-room building. The new lobby feels airier—thanks to higher ceilings—yet more intimate, made possible by converting the formerly open space into a series of sitting rooms. Also new to the hotel is the 28-seat fine-dining restaurant L’Ecrin, a Sense spa with treatments inspired by centuries-old French remedies, and a jewel-like, glass-ceilinged pool. Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld even designed the two most luxurious suites, the fourth-floor Les Grands Appartements, adding bespoke furniture, his own artwork, and over-the-top bathrooms and dressing rooms.

A Louis XV icon

Few hotels in Paris are as historic and beloved as this Louis XV icon and the former residence of the Duke de Crillon, which overlooks the Place de la Concorde. Hôtel de Crillon has been a landmark since 1909, drawing dignitaries and performers from Roosevelt to Madonna over the years, the Palace hotel underwent a four-year transformation by the Lebanese architect Aline Asmar d’Amman, who overhauled the Eiffel Tower’s Jules Verne restaurant.

The property reopened in 2017 as a Rosewood hotel. A team of designers and craftspeople preserved landmarked features, including a staircase, mirrors, and heritage salons, and then imbued it with a warm, residential feel. Each of the 124 guest rooms comes with butler service, French Buly 1803 products, salon-level hair dryers, and custom furnishings. Two Karl Lagerfeld–designed suites called Les Grands Appartements feature white brocade wingback chairs and marble fireplaces, while a deluxe room honors the designer’s cat, Choupette.

On-site dining and drinking establishments include the first French project for chef Paul Pairet (of the three-Michelin-star restaurant Ultraviolet in Shanghai), while the spa’s offerings include treatments by Sisley and Maison Caulières, a full-service David Lucas hair salon, and rotating monthly workshops and experiences with local experts for everything from meditation to neurofeedback, open to both guests and Parisians. Don’t miss a dip in the subterranean, gold-accented skylighted pool.
