The Hotel Plaza Athénée last month unveiled its renovated Royal Suite by interior designer Mari-José Pommereau. The Royal Suite tops the list as the most spacious, luxurious and most expensive hotel suite in Paris.
Paris's largest suite, the Royal Suite at the Hotel Plaza Athénée, recently underwent a renovation, led by interior designer and co-founder of the French edition of Architectural Digest magazine, Marie-José Pommereau.
The 4,843 square-foot space comprises four bedrooms, four bathrooms, two lounges as well as an office and a kitchen space.
The first lounge of the suite is filled with shades of purple, blending traditional and modern styles.
Italian marble, specially selected for the Royal Suite in the quarries near Verona, has been used for the bathrooms.
The suite overlooks one of the main landmarks of the city, the Eiffel Tower. It also has views onto the famous Avenue Montaigne and its luxury shops.
The renovated suite features a Parisian design blending classical and modern styles. The furniture dates from Louis XV and Louis XVI periods and includes golden and purple finishes for a contemporary look.
The bathrooms are fitted with Italian marble sourced from Verona. One of the bathrooms includes a steam room and Jacuzzi.
Rates in the Royal suite start from €20,000 (about $26,000) per night.
While maintaining the classical feel of the rooms and furnishings, Marie-José Pommereau has given the suite a more modern appearance.
The four-floor Presidential Suite at the Raj Palace Hotel in Jaipur, India, came in second place. A former residence of Maharaja, the suite has a roof terrace, swimming pool and its own private museum. Rates begin at $45,000 per night.
The most expensive suite in the world, according to CNN's ranking, is the Royal Penthouse Suite at the Hotel President Wilson in Geneva. For $65,000 per night, the suite offers panoramic views of Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc. The 12-room suite has a private fitness center, a library and a billiard room.
On CNN's ranking, established before the revamp of the Royal Suite, the room came in as the 11th most expensive in the world.
