HOTEL CHECK FRANCE, Le Meurice, Paris

Louise Lundius has returned from a weekend in Paris at one of our new Select Collection hotels.  Le Meurice drops famous names like Philippe Starck and Alain Ducasse. And that is not its only claim to fame...

Traditional opulence 

Le Meurice is an impressive traditional/classic property with chic modern touches. Philippe Starck was involved in the renovations, which you can see in details throughout the hotel, like the frozen mirror in the lobby and the large glass boxes with candles and floating mirrors. His daughter Ara has done the murals in restaurant Le Dali. The area around the reception, restaurants and lobby is beautifully luminescent.

Rooms with style

We stayed in a junior suite on the first floor which was great. Like many other buildings it’s a houseman building which means that the rooms on the first floor have the highest ceilings and on floor 2,3 etc the height of the ceilings gets lower and lower. So I would definitely recommend booking rooms on the lower floors.

Our junior suite with tall ceilings

Each of the seven floors has a distinct style, with 160 rooms decorated in the style of Louis XVI,
all with modern amenities. Then the truly fortunate may stay in the the beautiful Belle Etoile Royal Suite with a 360° terrace of 250 sqm.

Short walk from the Louvre

The hotel has a very good location and everything you need is close by. To get to Le Louvre its only 7 minutes walk and the concierge help you with tickets so you can avoid the line. All the nice shops and restaurants are just around the corner.

And many other delights...

The hotel has one kitchen for all their restaurants and the head chef is Alain Ducasse so as you understand the food is amazing.


Don’t miss The Bar 228 which is a really nice intimate place to get together with delicious drinks...

Not to miss

They have a Valmont spa which is a really good product line. I had a massage there. If you´re going for a spa treatment at Le Meurice you should definitely go for a facial since they work with the luxurious brand Valmont, which is really good.

In a nutshell

This is a top 5-star property and perfect for a romantic weekend. Just a few hours away...

Light and elegant
