A re-creation of Haussmannian-era architecture, positioned in the most alluring and elegant neighborhood of Paris, the hotel is dazzling, eye-catching, and festooned in a palette of rich colors. An astonishing creation, this Hotel is a juxtaposition of worlds. The unexpected shapes and materials’ décor that is modern yet baroque. In the lively city of lights, the property is also a sanctuary with its luxurious spa.

Up a flight of marble stairs, the Diane restaurant is a veritable showcase. It sits within a circular space that opens onto a stylish terrace. A world that is both conventional yet daringly contemporary. Le Diane restaurant is a confection of sophisticated pale colors and muted tones, emphasized with brilliant orchids and serves modern cooking that is rich in local produce, exclusive ingredients and is seasoned with an array of international flavors. Jacques Garcia’s golden reinterpretation of the hotel’s splendid wall designed by Edouard François forms the doorway to the Joy Gallery. A very new, Parisian, totally timeless venue open throughout the day and offers some delectable food.

The Le Lucien Bar is cozy and magical. It is connected with the Joy Gallery and has a rich collection of fine wines, champagnes, cocktails, whiskeys are many more. The Fouquet’s -Fouquet’s restaurant was obtained by the Lucien Barriere Group in 1998 and was completely renovated by Jacques Garcia. It is now, more than ever before, a durable symbol of French cultural life and is an expression of the Lucien Barriere Group’s and Desseigne-Barriere family’s pledge to the world of the big screen. Fouquets ‘à la carte’ is a perfect coalition between cuisines that is light and traditional, or inventive and refined.

    I stayed here in the Fall of 2008 on my way home from Africa. Beautiful, small, simple place. Rooms very hip (this is the opposite of the Four Seasons George V) and the spa in the lower reaches is quite amazing. It’s huge, it’s beautiful and probably about the nicest I’ve seen.
