Imperial Suite LE BRISTOL PARIS 8TH ARRONDISSEMENT
A delightful mix of an original grande dame hotel and a modern marvel —be sure to spend time in its maritime-inspired sixth-floor pool with views of the city skyline — Le Bristol has welcomed guests since 1925. Rather than closing for an extensive renovation, the hotel gradually expanded through the years by acquiring new buildings, and underwent a six-year renovation while remaining open. In the Imperial Suite, revealed just a few years ago, casual French elegance abounds. The two bedrooms are full of feminine touches, including matching floral drapes and bedding. Both the living room and dining room have a traditional French ambiance, with classic artwork, handsome wood furniture, gilded mirrors, crystal chandeliers and plush couches in sumptuous fabrics. The dining room overlooks the garden through large windows and the suite has a private kitchen for your chef, making an evening in a must. L’Art de Vivre Le Bristol played a starring role inWoody Allen’s Midnight in Paris. Retrace the characters’ steps in a chauffeured vintage Citroën Traction Avant and sip champagne during your private tour. Or take a cruise along the Seine in a Venetian boat as the sun sets for a unique vantage point to the city’s most iconic sights.
