The Westin Paris - Vendôme
The Westin Paris - Vendôme has hosted royalty from yesteryear (Empress Eugénie and her husband Napoleon III) and today (Monaco’s Princess Grace and the Dalai Lama), but this 440-room hotel is known for panoramic views of the city, including the Tuileries garden, Place de la Concorde, Seine River, and Eiffel Tower. The exterior’s Palladian-style arches exude elegance. Inside, the hotel’s public spaces are filled with Second Empire exuberance and priceless objects d’art. Sybille de Margerie designed guest rooms and suites in with plush fabrics and rich colors such as purples and golds.
