Pierre Le Duck X Le Royal Monceau

I was thrilled when Le Royal Monceau invited me to spend a day experiencing this legendary hotel. I adore a Parisian palace as much as the next person, but I knew this one was going to be special, given the stunning architecture, tradition, and a contemporary interior by design guru Philipp Stark.

I’m not a fan of over-the-top interiors, and thankfully Le Royal Monceau strikes the perfect balance. Every room feels and looks exceedingly tasteful and comfortable, not a single detail out of tune. Art works abound, and you wonder if you’re in an actual hotel or at a friends home (you know, that very wealthy and stylish art collector friend of yours). Each guest is assigned his own personal butler, so you don’t have to bring your own.

Among the many unique features is a private in-house movie theater, the Katara Cinema. It sits 99 people, and is a dream venue not only for movie going: picture yourself staging a press conference or hosting a meeting here. I did enjoy a movie with a glass of champagne and some popcorns made by the Picasso of Pastry himself, Pierre Hermé. And as my followers know, once you go Pierre…

Foodwise, I specially loved the Michelin starred Il Carpaccio. Boasting the loveliest garden pavillion, it is probably the best italian eaterie in the city. Desserts are a special treat, as again Pierre Hermé gives his own twist to italian classics.

The Clarins Spa is a true urban retreat. The pool, huge and filled with natural light, is a heavenly sanctuary of pampering and relaxation.

But what really makes Le Royal Monceau stand above in the parisian hotel scene is the top notch level of service. I came to realize that the beautiful building, the fabulous interior design, and the incredible facilities are just the magnificent backdrop for a perfectly written and rehearsed play about the exceptional care and attention you get from the staff. And that’s why I’d like to call it home.
