This contemporary hotel on Rue Saint-Honoré offers a modern and calming feeling, which can be a welcome change from the city’s classic hotels. Here, clean lines, Art Deco-inspired design and the chic Mandarin Oriental touch set the tone for a bit of urban zen. The hotel’s dining continues the contemporary feel, whether it’s an elegant lunch in the courtyard garden, modern cuisine in Camélia or a gourmand experience at Sur Mesure par Thierry Marx, which holds two Michelin stars. There is also a whimsical patisserie, the aptly named Cake Shop, which you can enjoy in Camélia or in your room. The spa boasts a 46-ft pool, seven spa suites with treatment from Guerlain and Aromatherapy Associates, a steam room and a well-equipped fitness center.
