A night at Hôtel de Crillon, A Rosewood Hotel

In the heart of one of the world’s most romantic cities is a luxury masterpiece. Hôtel de Crillon, which is part of the illustrious Rosewood Hotel collection, represents an intricate balance between attentive architecture and decadent amenities. The hotel offers the perfect depiction of Parisian elegance.

Hôtel de Crillon has a rich history that dates back as far as 1758. Only a short walk away from the Champs-Élysées, Grand Palais and Palais Garnier as well as the Louvre museum, Musée d’Orsay and Arc de Triomphe, the hotel’s location couldn’t be more ideal. Hôtel de Crillon is known for attention to detail and this is exemplified in its stunning rooms and suites. A combination of style and tremendous stature, the signature suites set the bar astronomically high. 

The Ateliers d’Artistes are three extraordinary suites located on the 7th floor of the hotel, nestled under the mansard roof of the palace. Each of the Ateliers d’Artistes feature an element that echoes different forms of art, Le Poète, L’Ecrivain and Le Peintre.

The trio of Ateliers d’Artistes all boast sumptuous queen or king-sized beds, walk in rain showers, underfloor heating and balconies offering unforgettable views of the Parisian skyline and the Eiffel Tower.

Slightly lower on the 4th floor you can find the prestigious pair of Les Grands Appartements, part of the artistic legacy of the late Karl Lagerfeld, one of the most celebrated designers in history and an 18th century connoisseur. Lagerfeld offers a masterclass in his famous personal vision of elaborate French chic teamed with unparalleled modernity. The Les Grands Appartements also offer beautiful views of Paris, including the Eiffel Tower, Place de la Concorde and Grand Palais.

The Les Grands Appartements are characterised by bespoke furniture, unique bathroom décor, a private dining room and state-of-the-art dressing rooms. The Les Grands Appartements are 176m squared and 125m squared respectively but can be joined together as via an conjoining bedroom illuminating the complete experience with one of the most magnificent three bedroom apartments in the city.

A sign of a truly great hotel is the quality of the breakfast and as expected Hôtel de Crillon offers the feast of a lifetime. The generous breakfast buffet is laden with indulgent treats; towers of exotic fruits, freshly baked pastries and yoghurts. However, at the heart of the room is where the magic happens. There is a chef station where you can choose from crepes and French toast and topped with any choice of ingredients your heart desires.

Hôtel de Crillon is famed for their iconic culinary approach which goes far beyond just breakfast. Le Boudoir is the crown jewel when it comes to decadent sweet gourmet delights, offering a plethora of Hôtel de Crillon’s finest patisseries and desserts. Highlights include the Cake Moelleux Chocolat-Noisette, soft and rich chocolate and hazelnut cake and the vibrant Cake Citron Coeur de Cassis made with lemon and blackcurrant.

Aside from extravagant aesthetics, Hôtel de Crillon holds wellness at its heart. There is a fitness studio, hair salon by David Lucas and the star of the show, Sense, a Rosewood Spa offers a bespoke approach to personal wellbeing, in a heavenly setting where palatial treatments using prestigious skincare lines including EviDenS de Beauté, Maison Caulières and Sisley provide the bedrock for an unforgettable experience.
