Êtes-vous fatigué? Hotel Plaza Athenee on Avenue Montaigne has just added more glitz to their gilded accommodations. Guests who choose to rest their heads in any of three exclusive signature suites at the Parisian five-star hotel will also receive all-access passes to whip around town in one of two fresh-from-the-factory Aston Martins.
The new Rapide, four-door, four-seater is all about respect and muscle, with a V12 under the hood, six-speed automatic transmission, and four “swan song” doors that will crook the necks of passers-by and avid admirers. The other option, at just three meters long, is the four-cylinder, 1.3-liter Cygnet, a renegade sports car for those not toting extra guests and baggage.
Decorated in Louis XVI or Regency style, rates for the Signature Suites at Hotel Plaza Athénée, with unlimited access to one of two new Aston Martins, begins at 8,000 euros ($11,642). Guest room rates begin from 750 euros ($1,092) for a superior room per room per night.
“The world’s young, rich, and titled check in here to check out one another, disporting themselves in one of the city’s hottest bars and two of its highly rated restaurants–the gorgeous Art Deco Relais Plaza (Yves Saint-Laurent is a regular) and Alain Ducasse, where an extravagant breakfast is also served (the pastry basket is so copious it requires its own printed guide). – Conde Nast Traveler
The Dorchester Collection hotel offers the full-service Spa Dior, Michelin-rated dining, pet-friendly services, and exquisitely-appointed suites that conjure the essence of former residences, making its guests feel as if the suite was theirs to keep. Situated on fashionable Avenue Montaigne, with its lauded designer promenades, shoppers can indulge in high-end brands such as Christian Dior, Prada, Balenciaga, and scores of other fashionable names just a walk away.
