Hidden between the Golden Triangle and Place de l'Etoile, Hotel Vernet has maintained its splendour and elegance for almost a hundred years. The entrance and elevator are a vision of wood and glass, surrounded by stunning stained glass windows. The corridor to the rooms is bright with light carpets and graphic-style furniture – this is tasteful luxury at its best. The apartments are very zen, with Carrara marble basins, glass mosaics and brass fittings.
In the evening, rendezvous under the sublime stained glass dome designed by Gustave Eiffel at the V, the hotel’s restaurant, dedicated to enlivening the senses. The open kitchen allows a window onto the skilled chefs working their magic. Expect classic French gastronomy with a touch of innovation to wow your tastebuds.
Then comes the marble-decked sumptuous bar, which has a gallery feel to it, best enjoyed cocktail in hand. A ceiling fresco by artist Jean-Michel Alberola adds a touch of madness to this otherwise haute-gamme elegant spot.
Luxury, calm and pleasure: this is Hotel Vernet’s credo. It’s close enough to the hustle and bustle of the Champs-Elysees, yet a world away.
