The new La Réserve Paris Hotel & Spa occupies a Haussmann-era mansion previously owned by Pierre Cardin, just off the Champs-Elysées at 42 Avenue Gabriel. The 8th Arrondissement location is a cobblestone’s throw from the Palais d’Elysée and Place de la Concorde, with views of the Eiffel Tower, Grand Palais, Pantheon and the Luxor Obelisk.
La Réserve Paris is a serene escape from the bustle of France’s capital city. Décor in the 26 spacious suites (including four Presidential Suites) and 14 rooms pays homage to the style of the Belle Époque. The large rooms feature period antique furniture, rich fabrics, regal colours, and muted lighting.
The exclusive spaces beyond the rooms and suites include facilities such as a private lounge, bar, courtyard, smoking parlour, library. And because you’re in France, particular attention has been paid to the cuisine. The seasonal French restaurant Le Gabriel is helmed by Jérôme Banctel, former Chef du Cuisine of Senderens, with two-Michelin stars to his name.
