Expert Review

Housed in a stately 18th-century mansion (in a neighborhood full of stately mansions), Radisson Blu Le Dokhan’s oozes elegance and Parisian charm. Formerly a private residence, the interiors were transformed by French interior designer Frédéric Méchiche, merging neoclassical design and Empire furnishings with whimsical touches such as an elevator made out of a vintage Louis Vuitton luggage trunk. The 45-room hotel, with its cozy salons (one with a wood-burning fireplace), antique wood floors, and cheerful striped wallpaper, feels more like a private home than a 4-star hotel. Radisson Blu took over the property in 2009, adding top-notch service and deluxe amenities as well as refurbishing the exterior and interiors. Rooms, though a bit on the small side, are pure comfort: fluffy bathrobes, free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, Nespresso machines (in some rooms), and quite possibly the most comfortable beds you’ve ever slipped into. If you’re looking to splurge, book the lovely blue-and-white Ming Suite; located on the sixth floor, it has a beautiful oval window overlooking the Parisian rooftops and a perfect view of the Eiffel Tower from the bathroom. A must-visit (whether you are staying at the hotel or not) is its jewel-box Champagne bar, all celadon green and gold, with plush velvet chairs and soft candlelight. Le Dokhan’s Bar offers 50 types of Champagne (many of them sourced from unique, small producers) and nightly tastings. Snacks and chocolates are also available, as well as seasonal sparkling cocktails for those who don’t like to drink their bubbly straight up.
