Tourists have a new way to see Paris: cruising the streets in an Aston Martin. The luxury carmaker is providing two of its newest models—the Rapide and the Cygnet—for guests of the Dorchester Collection’s Hôtel Plaza Athénée. The complimentary service is available for those who book the Parisian hotel’s Royal Suite, Art Deco Suite, or one of three Eiffel Suites, each of which feature views of the Eiffel Tower (starting around $11,300 per night). During their stay, guests have unlimited access to drive either the four-door, four-seat Rapide, which has a V-12 engine and a 6-speed automatic transmission; or the compact, 4-cylinder Cygnet, a two-seater with a handcrafted interior. The hotel concierge is available to map out sightseeing routes. (800.650.1842, www.plaza-athenee-paris.com)
