The Plaza Athénée is offically recognised by the French government as a Palace hotel since May 2011.

Hotel Plaza Athénée is a true symbol of traditional Parisian style, located in the heart of  Paris on the famous avenue Montaigne, just steps from the Champs Élysées and the Théâtre des Champs Élysées. With its views of the chestnut trees lining the full length of the Avenue Montaigne, panoramas of the Eiffel Tower, Montmartre and the sweep of Paris rooftops, Hotel Plaza Athénée is the perfect luxury Paris hotel in which to be based.

At the centre of Paris fashion, business and tourism, Hotel Plaza Athénée is surrounded by Paris's most exclusive designer shops on avenue Montaigne that include Christian Dior, Chanel, Max Mara, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Céline, Valentino, Calvin Klein and Hermès. The hotel is also within easy reach of Rue Faubourg Saint-Honoré.

Paris is regarded as one of the most romantic, stylish and exciting cities in the world, and Hotel Plaza Athénée is perfectly placed to discover numerous Paris attractions. Midway between the Arc de Triomphe and Place de la Concorde, not only is Hotel Plaza Athénée ideally situated for shopping but it is also close to several Paris museums and galleries including the Louvre, the Musée d'Orsay, the Grand Palais and the Eiffel Tower.

Music and theatre lovers will be delighted to discover that Hotel Plaza Athénée is also close to the Théâtre des Champs Élysées, which regularly features visiting international orchestras, opera and ballet companies, and the famous Théâtre de Marigny and Théâtre du Rond-Point are also close by. Palais Garnier, at the top of avenue de l'Opéra, has regular ballet performances and occasional operas.
