When the building that now houses Paris’s Hôtel de Crillon was built in 1758, the French Revolution hadn’t happened and the Eiffel Tower wouldn’t be constructed for another 130 years. Indeed, to call the Place de la Concorde structure “historical” almost feels like an understatement. It also explains the anticipatory buzz surrounding the hotel’s reopening after being shuttered for four years to undergo an ambitious restoration. Now a Rosewood property, the refreshed Hôtel de Crillon boasts two Karl Lagerfeld–designed suites, an intimate restaurant called L’Ecrin (seating just 22), and the opulent Salon Marie-Antoinette—designated a heritage landmark, the room boasts original 18th-century ceilings.
