Le Bristol Hotel Paris is often described as an intimate palace combined with refined elegance and extraordinarily attentive, gracious service. Opened in 1924, the hotel now stands grander and more elegant than ever, after a recent re-furnishment project. Built in Eiffel style, Le Bristol Hotel Paris features original art and Gobelin tapestries throughout the hotel. Everything is understated and quite luxurious: polished white Carrara marble floors, Baccarat crystal chandeliers, Savonnerie rugs in muted green and royal blue, eighteenth-century Gobelin tapestries on the walls, Louis XVI sofas and armchairs upholstered in velvet and silk brocade. Le Bristol Hotel Paris is at a short walking distance to the Opera, business district and big department stores.
