Welcome to the luxurious world of Paris's Le Bristol
Question: Where in Paris can you spot Brad Pitt, George Clooney, über-model Natalia Vodianova, couture designer Christian Lacroix AND Leonardo DiCaprio? Answer: the famed, chic and extravagant Le Bristol.
Located just a Fendi bag’s throw from the Champs-Élysées, this grand hotel has played host to a myriad of Hollywood names and fashion darlings over the years, but thankfully has more than enough rooms to suit mega stars and mere mortals alike. Granted, not all of us can afford the opulent presidential suites, but even in the basic (and we use the word loosely) rooms you’ll find marble bathrooms larger than the average London flat, mile-wide beds and stunning floral arrangements.
What really marks Le Bristol out from the competition, however, isn’t the bedrooms or even the two Michelin-starred restaurant (although that’s definitely something to savour), but its beautiful, sun-drenched garden – for those who spend their days wearing down the cobble stones between Gucci and Louis Vuitton, it’s the perfect place to kick off your Louboutins and relax.
