Shangri-La Hotel, Paris

Just before the turn of the 20th century, Prince Roland Bonaparte, a grandnephew of Napoléon I, constructed a grand family residence just across the Seine River from the then-new Eiffel Tower. This past December, after a four-year restoration, the 115-year-old structure opened as the Shangri-La Hotel, Paris.

The hotel—the first in Europe from the Hong Kong–based Shangri-La group—is the work of architect Richard Martinet and interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon, who transformed the former residence into a collection of 54 guest rooms and 27 suites. The accommodations range from 376 to 2,938 square feet—sprawling by Parisian standards—and some afford views of the Eiffel Tower or the Louvre. (Guests should indicate their preference when booking.)

The setting also allows easy access to the Avenue du Président Wilson market, where visitors can sample farmer Sandy McKeen’s goat’s milk cheeses. Chef Philippe Labbé oversees the hotel’s dining options, which will include L’Abeille, a classic French restaurant, and Shang Palace, a Cantonese eatery run by chef Frank Xu. Both restaurants and a wellness area are set to open in the spring. Shangri-La Hotel, Paris, +33.1.53.67.19.98, www.shangri-la.com
