From the royal Place Vendôme, a showcase for top luxury jewellers, to the splendid Second Empire Palais Garnier, home to the Paris Opera, the Hôtel Athénée has some grandiose neighbours! The nearby boulevards, covered galleries, and secret passages celebrate luxury and take you on a trip through time. Stroll under the arcades in the Palais-Royal gardens, built in the early 17th century, admire the gilt dome of the opera house, its majestic cupola painted by Chagall and decorated with heavy crystal chandeliers… everywhere you look, there is majestic, opulent architecture, a testament to time.
Ideally located in one of the most prestigious districts in Paris, Hôtel Athénée is close to the Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay, the Tuileries, and just a short metro ride from the Champs-Élysées. For shopping, you will find top luxury labels, prestigious department stores, and the best of French gastronomy: Place de la Madeleine is famous for macarons and other gourmet treats!
Art, History and Lifestyle… the three ingredients that give Paris its unique alchemy. But it is far from being set in stone: Paris is a living, vibrant city! The area around Hôtel Athénée is buzzing with top restaurants and small bistros, bijou boutiques and performance venues, like the legendary Olympia concert hall and the world-famous Comédie Française… The Place Vendôme and Opéra district captures the very essence of this prestigious aura.
