Hotel Barrière Le Fouquet’s
Hotel Barrière Le Fouquet's surrounds the famous Fouquet’s café that opened in 1898 on the avenue des Champs Élysées as a footman’s hangout and evolved into a high-society spot where Marlene Dietrich and other early cinema stars signed contracts. Part of a French luxury chain, this stylish small hotel draws celebs (Beyoncé and Jay-Z, George and Amal Clooney); French entertainers stage variety shows in the salons; and movie companies book rooms done in elegant off-whites, grays and understated golds by Jacques Garcia (all renovated in 2017) as backdrops for film-promotion interviews. Butlers on duty 24/7 offer guests star-worthy private concierge service. Excellent soundproofing lets anyone sleep through the noise of revving sports-car engines and screaming fans at the front door.
