Located between Place de la Concorde and the Louvre, Le Meurice is ideally located for a range of activities, whether you’re after fine dining and shopping or simply want to explore the city of romance and culture.

Decorated in the extravagant Louis XVI style and featuring stunning interior styling in the public spaces and restaurants from the renowned Philippe Starck thanks to a refurbishment in 2016, each of the hotel’s seven floors has its own distinct theme.
