Hôtel Westminster: The Duke’s Home In Paris
Located on the prestigious rue de la Paix in a perfect position between l’Opéra Garnier and Place Vendôme, Hôtel Westminster’s very British name belies its French pedigree as one of the city’s most historic hotels. Named in honour of 19th-century resident the Duke Of Westminster, the property is more than 200 years old and remains a smart choice for travellers looking for comfortable accommodation in a superconvenient location. Aside from the grandeur of l’Opéra and the deluxe boutiques of Place Vendôme, Hôtel Westminster is also very close to the legendary Parisian department stores, Galeries Lafayette and Printemps, located only a few blocks away, placing a day’s haul of purchases within easy reach.
Of Hôtel Westminster’s 102 newly renovated rooms, 22 are suites in a variety of sizes and configurations, most of them decorated in a tastefully traditional style updated with contemporary flair. Rooms can be combined to create suites with multiple bedrooms as needed by families or groups of friends travelling together. The elegance ambience is not limited to the guestrooms; the hotel’s public areas are likewise well appointed, with the Michelin-starred restaurant Le Céladon offering fine dining with an Asian touch in a counterpoint to the ultra-British surroundings of the Duke’s Bar; with its green club chairs, fireplace, and library, the Duke’s Bar is a classic club in the British tradition.
A flagship property of Warwick International Hotels, Hôtel Westminster is also a Parisian favourite for meetings and conferences. Five meeting rooms in different sizes are available. The connection to Charles de Gaulle Airport via the Roissybus service departing from Place de l’Opéra makes Hôtel Westminster easy for international visitors to reach. Easy to reach, yes…but when the time inevitably comes, oh so hard to leave. There is an intangible air of domestic reassurance here, not only a material comfort but a mental comfort of being at home; few hotels achieve this to the successful extent of Hôtel Westminster.
