Unlike boutique hotels, super-smart, five-star business hotels were in rather short supply in Paris before the Mandarin Oriental opened on Rue Saint Honoré. A stone’s throw from Place Vendôme and the Jardin des Tuileries, this hotel offers everything the business traveller requires and more to get on with the job at hand.
True to the brand’s reputation, the Mandarin Oriental’s spa, pool, steam room and fitness facilities are just as stylish, modern and well attended as its conference and meeting rooms, while babysitting services can also be arranged with 24 hours’ notice. In summer, the lobby’s central courtyard restaurant Camélia takes the power lunch outside.
Housing the Louvre, Jardin des Tuileries, Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Place Vendôme, Palais Royal and perhaps Paris’ most famous style strip rue Saint-Honoré, the 1st arrondissement is situated principally on the Right Bank of the Seine. As one of Paris’ oldest areas it also showcases some of its most spectacular public buildings, hotels, restaurants and gardens.
