Hospes Lancaster – Paris

Posted on 12 July 2011

If you want the luxurious without being obvious in Paris, I’d suggest the Hospes Lancaster. A hotel rich in history and a favourite with royalty and with the art and show business celebrities. Two steps from the Champs-Elysées and the Arc du Triomphe, the building was built in 1889 for Spanish nobility and was later acquired by Emile Wolf, the famous hotelier responsible for its transformation and inauguration as a hotel in 1930. In 1996 it was again remodelled according to the philosophy of its creator, the perfect harmony between the old and the new. The interior holds a vast collection of artworks and antiques, from clocks to candelabra, including tapestries, crystal and porcelain. Utmost attention to detail has been given and one experiences a classical and elegant setting, replete with comfort and good taste. At La Table du Lancaster, a one-star Michelin restaurant of more modern lines, or at the adjacent Zen garden, a gourmet experience is recommended. Michel Troisgros, the chef, has taken his inspiration from his travels and origins in Italy to create a menu with a characteristic style that surprises with its lively, remarkable and sharp flavours. Become acquainted with the Hospes Lancaster, witness its attentive service and experience the charm that captivated King Humberto of Italy, Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo or Sir Alec Guinness. Accept the invitation to be the next famous person to stay at the suites with a view onto the Eiffel Tower
