It continues, “If you desire views of the surrounding city, upgrade to one of the property’s Prestige Suites. Each honors a Parisian landmark, time period, or well-known individual. Noteworthy suites include the Suite Impériale, which is listed as a historic monument, and the Suite Coco Chanel, the former Parisian home of the famous designer. After settling into your accommodations, previous guests recommend grabbing a cocktail in Bar Hemingway or a meal at L’Espadon. You can also take a pastry or gastronomy course through the hotel’s cooking school. Or, if you’d rather lounge poolside or relax during a massage, visit the Ritz Club Paris spa.”
