After booking a flight and reserving a car rental in Paris
, the next step for travelers is to choose the right hotel. For a historic, artful and luxurious stay, visitors can find rooms at the Paris Le Grand, situated in the heart of the city.
Built in a Napoleonic palace style in 1862, the establishment stands out among the dozens of shopping, theater and banking districts in the area and lies close to famous French attractions including the Opera Garnier, Place Vendome and the Louvre Museum. Since its establishment, it has been refurbished to stay up-to-date with modern technology while maintaining its historic charm.
Even before travelers hit the streets for days filled with sightseeing, they can tour the grand hallways of the hotel, which are adorned with incredible and elaborate paintings by renowned artists from earlier centuries.
Another reason that guests love the elegant Parisian hotel is the Cafe de la Paix, which opened the same year specifically to serve hotel guests. To feel as elegant as the ambience of the cafe, guests can order one of their exquisite fashion pastries. Infusing fashion and design with delectable flavors, master pastry chefs, with the assistance of world-famous designers, have concocted the most stylish desserts to serve their patrons.
Travelers with kids in tow will want to make sure they hit up the cafe's Sunday brunch, a well-known party to hotel guests and Parisian natives. Each patron has an array of fluffy waffles and homemade ginger bread at their disposal, which they can top with a mountain of Tagada strawberries, syrup and marshmallows for the little ones or the young at heart. Chef Christophe Raoux concocts crispy Viennese pastries, piping hot crepes and a dessert buffet that parents may need to hide from the kids, as it is loaded with an avalanche of candy.
Older eaters can take advantage of the savory buffet, which includes seafood, carved meat and a set of family-style dishes. Kids can play in the designated "children's corner" while parents mingle amongst each other and sample delectable bites and their complimentary glass of rose champagne. From 12:15 to 3:30 p.m., families can enjoy live music and delicious fare before they embark on an adventurous tour of France's capital city.
Guests who book a car rental in France
will have the city of Paris at their fingertips when they stay in this magnificent establishment ingrained in the nation's history.
