Hotel Barriere Le Fouquet's Paris
Style in the City
What it is
A just redone 81-room retreat with a glitzy brasserie, a spa and an indoor pool that’s the envy of—well, Paris.
What it isn't
Slovenly. Work of your four croissants a day in the gleaming fitness center, where coaches linger to help tailor-make your workout.
What we think
The Paris of our Deco-inspired dreams *does* exist, and it’s right here. Guest rooms designed by Jacques Garcia are as luxe as they come, with mahogany and leather finishes and a calming palette of neutrals on blacks; we love that high-tech features mean you can control your lighting needs from the touch of a tablet. Book the 700 square foot Prestige Champs-Elysees Suite for a prime overlook on its namesake, plus soundproof walls and a king size bed that all but demands you sleep in.
You're here because
Service is legendary, with butlers, porters, valets, nursery attendants, and basically any other staffer you might need to feel like you’re ensconced in the Ritz.
Locals beeline behind a secret bookshelf to get to Le Marta, the hotel’s hush-hush nightclub, where DJ’s spin until 3 a.m. Luckily, you’ve nabbed a purple velvet seat by the fireplace to nibble what is arguably the most swoon-inducing caviar you’ve ever tasted—alongside a tipple of Veuve, of course.
