Lovingly named after the Duke of Westminster, the historic Warwick Westminster has played host to luminaries, dignitaries, royalty, and celebrities over the last 200 years. Evoking a quintessentially Parisian feel, this four-star Hausmannian-built hotel is centrally located in the heart of Paris, in the most prestigious high fashion shopping district of the city, and is within walking distance of the Louvre, Opera, Place Vendome, and Tuileries.
After undergoing a massive renovation, the Signature rooms are the latest incarnation of contemporary Parisian décor at its best. Rooms are awash in a soothing neutral palette with soft fabric-covered walls, sumptuous velvet furnishings, and Egyptian cotton linens. State-of-the-art bathrooms feature luxurious amenities and refined facilities. Enjoy the comforts of home with a personalized coffee and tea maker, in-room media hub, complementary hi-speed wifi access, and flat screen televisions featuring over 80 channels. Other special touches are a welcome cocktail and personalized check-in services.
To truly bask in Parisian luxury, book one of the suites that evokes the regal ambiance of France's opulent past, paying homage to the 200 years of rich history enjoyed by the Westminster. Befitting of French royalty, the 65-meter squared Vendome suite has the feeling of a luxe Parisian pied-a-terre, from the crystal chandelier to the marble fireplace, antiques, sitting areas and balconette overlooking Rue de la Paix. The Vendome is elegantly decorated with rich brocade fabric walls and draperies, classic French art, and outfitted with state of the art amenities such as two flatscreen TVs and double glazed soundproof windows. The oversized white Carerra marble bathroom is also appointed with Bvlgari amenities and features a separate shower and bath.
Enjoy a quiet drink or gather with friends at the cozy Duke's Bar, which has a decidedly English gentlemen's club atmosphere and features nightly live jazz. The walls are decorated with black and white portraits of English writers, with plush leather chairs surrounding mahogany tables and gothic wood paneled walls.
For the last 20 years, Le Celadon has earned a Michelin star and is regarded as one of Paris' premiere dining destinations. Chef Christophe Moisand has created a creative menu centered around fine French cuisine, with a contemporary flair and beautifully presented compositions. The décor combines French sophistication with an Asian influence amidst a color palette of pale green and accents of Celadon porcelain, crystal, and silk. Experience Parisian life at its finest and live in the lap of luxury at the Westminster Hotel.
