Hôtel de Crillon: Reserve Paris’s finest for €300 million
After several glamorous years welcoming the world’s glitterati through its doors, the luxurious Hôtel de Crillon is set to switch hands.
Some of the world’s leading lights of politics and show business have occupied rooms alongside royalty in this French residence.
Gracing an enviable position near the Champs Elysées on Place de la Concorde, the Hotel is perhaps most famous for its opulent Leonard Bernstein Suite.
Situated on the fifth floor, the room features a wrap-around terrace and one of the late maestro’s personal pianos. It even offers exceptional views of the Eiffel Tower.
On the top floor can be found the Louis XV Suite with its painted wood panelling, silk furnishings and view over the whole of Paris.
Former guests of the world-class residence include the Dalai Lama, Winston Churchill, Elizabeth Taylor, Mariah Carey and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Commissioned by Louis XV and built in 1758 as a government building, the Crillon was converted into a hotel 100 years ago.
The hotel has been owned by investment firm Starwood Capital since 2005.
Reasons for the sale are unknown.
