Le Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris has been officially awarded “Best New Hotel 2012” by the prestigious TATLER magazine in its latest Travel Guide, celebrating the hotels that attract guests from the sheer force of their personality. Compiled by a highly regarded network of travel editors and contributors, the annual tome is the must-have guide for travellers seeking the epitome of luxury hotels and resorts.
Le Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris reopened in October 2010 as a new generation palace after a dramatic and complete two year transformation by designer Philippe Starck. The hotel has 149 luxurious rooms and suites and is just minutes from the Arc-de-Triomphe and the Champs-Elysées in Paris’ 8th arrondissement. Art is a key feature of Raffles Paris – Le Royal Monceau. Food and drink are an art form too – from the buzz of the Long Bar on the ground floor, to the two restaurants, La Cuisine for gourmet French food and Il Carpaccio for the best Italian in Paris. Not to be missed are the creations by Pierre Hermé, the Picasso of patisserie or the recently launched Spa My Blend by Clarins.
