Hôtel Plaza Athénée
The Haute Couture address in Paris
What better place for a hotel with fashion at its heart and a love of all things Haute Couture than on the prestigious avenue Montaigne.
Chic, stylish and fashion-loving, Hôtel Plaza Athénée has enjoyed a long love affair with Haute Couture.
Hôtel Plaza Athénée stands proudly on the city’s famous avenue of couture, surrounded by some of the world’s most luxurious fashion brands. For decades, this area has inspired artists and given designers an elegant showcase for their exceptional craftsmanship. On our doorstep you’ll find all the big-name boutiques including Dior, Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Prada.
Our Dior connection
Back in 1946, Christian Dior opened his first boutique on avenue Montaigne, inspired by the idea of attracting our elegant guests. In homage to his love of the hotel, his collections included creations called Plaza and Athénée. The legendary Dior Bar suit was even inspired by the chic women who frequented our bar. Continuing this long relationship, our spa is a Dior Institut decorated with fashion sketches by Christian Dior and photos of his fashion shoots at the hotel.
Haute Couture Suite
All our beautifully crafted rooms and suites are designed to offer you the same feeling as an Haute Couture creation. We’ve personally selected the finest fabrics and furnishings to offer you a truly elevated experience. Our Haute Couture Suite is dedicated to Dior, something that’s reflected in its signature grey and pink tones. Subtle details like a mannequin, Dior books and a chocolate treat in a fashionable form, all add to the unique appeal.
Favoured by fashionistas
Paris Fashion Week is undoubtedly one of the highlights of our year. We literally roll out the red carpet for our guests and decorate the hotel in increasingly creative ways. We’re well-known for fashion parties, catwalk shows and many of our suites are used by well-known designers for showcasing their latest collections. Our ‘lady in the red dress’ personally greets you and adds a fashionable flair all of her own.
All in the detail
From the dramatic flowing fabric on the ceiling of our bar to our Salon Haute Couture event space and the bespoke Bruno Moinard fashion-themed watercolour paintings, we’re proud of our innate passion for fashion. Our spa is a Dior Institut, decorated with fashion sketches by Dior and photos of his fashion shoots at the hotel. And if it is designer fashion shopping you’re after, well you know all the best boutiques are just a few steps away.
Tailored to you
Just like a talented designer or skilled seamstress working tirelessly behind the scenes, our dedicated team strives to ensure a seamless experience. We tailor each stay to suit your own exacting requirements. Be it the creativity of our florists, the care of our concierges or our chefs’ perfectly presented cuisine, it’s all for you.
