Hotel Plaza Athenee - Luxury Paris Hotel

Having celebrated its first 100 years, Hôtel Plaza Athénée in Paris is looking ahead to the next century. In keeping with Dorchester Collection’s continuous investment in taking the luxury experience to new levels, the iconic hotel will undergo a partial restoration to integrate additional buildings creating six new guest rooms, eight suites, a ballroom and two event spaces.

Over the past several years, Hôtel Plaza Athénée has had the opportunity to purchase three buildings surrounding the hotel. These include a townhouse to the right of the hotel on 29 avenue Montaigne; a townhouse on rue Clément Marot; and the building where Le Relais Plaza is located.

Despite every effort to maintain the hotel’s activity during this period, François Delahaye, COO of Dorchester Collection and general manager of Hôtel Plaza Athénée, has resolved to close the hotel to preserve the guests’ comfort and convenience whilst the developments take place, commencing on 1 October 2013. This summer 2014, Hôtel Plaza Athénée guests will rediscover the warm, refined surroundings of the hotel ready to embrace its next century. In the meantime guests will be welcomed at our sister hotel Le Meurice, also part of Dorchester Collection.
