WHERE IN THE WORLD
LA RESERVE, PARIS
Tucked away behind the Champs Elysées near the Elysées Palace, overlooking the Grand Palais, the Eiffel Tower, the Pantheon and the Concorde obelisk, La Réserve is the epitome of Parisian chic. Owner Michael Reybier strives to make the guests of his hotels feel like they are in a home away from home and we can agree, the lobby felt more like the a 19th century bourgeois Parisian apartment, the décor unabashedly and unmistakably Parisian.
THE REASON WHY
"PARIS IS ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA" - Audrey Hepburn, 1954
Katy, Director of Travel, loves nothing more than finding hotels which offer more than just the ordinary, places which resonate within their city of origin and offer guests a truly authentic experience. Offered a chance to stay at this Parisian gem is it any wonder she jumped at the chance?
THE STAR DUST
The amazing thing about Hotel La Réserve is the feel of the grand dames of Paris although so intimate – like you have the run of a very exclusive house. You can feel the history of this stunning palace as soon as you walk into the lobby and it feels intimately glamorous in a very Parisian way. Jacques Garcia has converted this old palace into the pleasure house of your dreams.
The Butler service is unparalleled. Opening my suitcase to find it packed to perfection with every item wrapped in tissue paper and every pair of shoes in their very own branded bag – just another level of service!
THE WORLD SAID
“Never will you feel more beautiful than sitting up at their Ernest Hemingway-esque bar drinking your first cocktail of the night. Intimate corners or more sociable depending on your mood. The restaurant is out of this world and the staff from heaven. Honeymoon, secret rendezvous or to fill this place with all your friends would be the most fun and sophisticated event imaginable.”
