Hôtel Plaza Athénée Paris, Paris, France

By Will Grice

A beacon of storied luxury in the city of love, Hôtel Plaza Athénée has received the Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (Living Heritage) label and the Distinction Palace. Since opening in 1911, the magical hotel has welcomed loyal Parisians, politicians and royalty. The decor is stunning and the epitome of Parisian glamour, especially the famous courtyard with its ‘Plaza-red’ parasols.

There are five restaurants, but we love Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée — the cuisine is as delicious as expected from this celebrated chef, and the dining room is a sight to behold: Futuristic silver pods sit beneath crystals dripping from the ceiling.

Top suite: Royal Suite from $31,300 per night

If you do one thing: Visit the wine cellar for a tasting. Hosted by master sommelier Gérard Margeon, sample some of the 35,000 bottles on offer including Grandes Marques champagnes.
