Mandarin Oriental, Paris

Parisian sophistication wooed by zen tranquility

What it is

A sleek and utterly upscale retreat with flawless service.

What it isn't

A charmingly cramped boutique on a narrow Left Bank side street.

What we think

The Mandarin Oriental claims one of the swankiest addresses in town; flanked by the fashion world’s haughtiest haute couture, the 138-room hotel fits right in. Guests walking in from the fashionista-packed streets are greeted by a lovely staff and a glossy marble lobby, but the striking factor is the rear wall of glass exposing the hotel’s rather magnificent central courtyard garden. That sky-high glass wall sets the tone: sophisticated opulence, refined poise and a distinction that “top of the line” is the only acceptable ranking here. Interior designer Sybille de Margerie mixed the Mandarin’s serene, Eastern-influenced aesthetic with Paris’ rich, elevated style and the results inside the 1930s Art Deco shell have that enviably perfect Parisian je ne sais quoi. As with all Mandarins, the Parisian post’s dining is impeccable (and glowing under its Michelin stars,) but the crown jewel of the property is dedicated to relaxation and rejuvenation: the massive subterranean spa is a verified temple of serenity.

You're here because

You want the best of the best. A margin of error that sits at zero, no-expenses-spared sophistication and a sense that serenity is the highest form of luxury.

The Moment

At Thierry Marx’s Sur Mesure, you sink into the curved seat. The restaurant is spotlessly white: thick fabric drapes the walls and ceiling, the chairs, table, even the floor is a subdued white. As the third course of the tasting menu arrives, you realize that the white acts as a blank canvas, giving all the attention to the plated masterpieces.

Location

Sitting on posh Rue Saint-Honoré, the Mandarin Oriental is a three minute walk from the Tuileries Gardens (entering at Rue de Castiglione or Rue Cambon) and 10 minutes (by foot) from the Louvre of the banks of the Seine. The international airports are both about 20 minutes away.
