Expert Review

When Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) hits Paris for the show's finale, the role of "the world's most romantic room with an Eiffel Tower view" is masterfully played by the Plaza Athénée's gorgeous 1,615 square-foot Suite 609. Since its thorough 1999 renovation, this 191-room Art Nouveau hotel in the tony (but not terribly hip) 8th arrondissement has successfully fashioned itself as Paris' clubhouse for the chic and famous. Don't even think of showing up in less than your best designer attire at either of its two world-renowned restaurants – the Relais Plaza and 3-Michelin star Alain Ducasse – or at the hot Bar Montaigne. As for the rooms, each features marble bathrooms with separate bath and shower, large closets, and plush furnishings. The quietest rooms overlook the leafy interior courtyard, but for the best views, request something on a high floor facing Avenue Montaigne. Five fire-engine red bicycles – complimentary for guests – are the perfect way to explore Paris.
