You have already the plane tickets but still don’t know where to stay in Paris? Maybe you’d like to consider Le Meurice since it embodies the perfect French palace hotel. It has also been ranked among the most elegant hotels in the world, combining exceptional 18th-century opulence with contemporary chic, and including eye-catching interiors by Philippe Starck.
Le Meurice has been completely redecorated by that incomparable genius of design, Philippe Starck, and his talented daughter, Ara. They have added a modern twist whilst preserving the special atmosphere of luxury that is the very soul of the establishment. Franka Holtmann, General Manager of Le Meurice, has chosen Philippe Starck to restore Le Meurice’s heritage to its rightful prominence, and in doing so exalt its riches and beauty. His response is an «invisible transformation» with considerations of colour and light, a new interpretation of furniture, a play on transparency and movement while Ara Starck has painted a monumental canvas.

Located between Place de la Concorde and the Louvre, Le Meurice is ideally situated for visiting the finest art that Paris has to offer.
The public spaces were regenerated by the acclaimed French designer Philippe Starck. Starting with this well-preserved architectural gem, Starck and his design team have given us a great visual gift. The hotel’s original historic features have been restored and the interiors reinvigorated in glorious French fashion. The creative license given to Starck has produced irresistible public spaces that appeal to both international and French clientele.
