A STAR DORCHESTER COLLECTION PROPERTY, LE MEURICE PARIS OFFERS ELEGANCE AND ENJOYMENT IN EQUAL DOSES. he fabled Le Meurice Paris has the distinction of being one of Paris’ five palace hotels, a prized ranking that says much about its style – and pedigree. Located in the chic and richly historic 1st arrondissement, Le Meurice sits opposite the Tuileries Garden and is just a short stroll from the Louvre, Musée d’Orsay and Opera Garnier, in a cultured quarter of Paris. The grandeur continues inside, with 160 rooms and suites appointed with Louis XVIstyle furniture, oversized marble bathrooms and private entrance foyers, plus deluxe furnishings and amenities, including a twice-daily maid service. Many rooms have views of Paris’ most iconic sights.

The Meurice has two acclaimed restaurants – Le Dalí, with its furniture inspired by Salvador Dalí and a ceiling painting by Ara Starck, and the three Michelin-star rated Restaurant Le Meurice, all gilt-edged and chandelier-decked. Both are renowned for their refined and inventive cuisine. At Bar 228, an intimate nook, head sommelier Estelle Touzet offers monthly winetasting events, and has guests sipping the best wines from the world over. Several cultural events are slated for this northern winter. The Meurice Prize for contemporary art, held in October, draws the cream of emerging French artists who compete for the €20,000 prize. In January 2014 is the Le Meurice Galette des Reines, a now-annual culinary event held

in appreciation of the hotel’s many glamorous women guests. Purchase a galette pastry and inside you will find a limited-edition charm created by our jewellery partner of the year. In February, the Meurice hosts its 6th children’s carnival to date – an afternoon of activities including dance, magic shows, face painting, a parade and much more.
