Hôtel de Crillon, Paris

The Sofitel Royal Lyon stands in the Place Bellecour, just minutes from the Perrache train station. In the centre of the Old City, with its architectural treasures, the Sofitel Royal Lyon is the ideal hotel for a tourist getaway or a business meeting. The city's points of interest radiate around the Sofitel Royal Lyon, including its fine museum collections, luxury boutiques, the famous Lyonnais "bouchons" and business centres. The historic hotel offers 80 rooms and suites with varying decors such as marine, contemporary, canopy bed, large scale or French atmosphere.

The Sofitel Palm Beach is situated in a unique setting, giving directly onto the sea, with a spectacular view of the Bay of Marseille and the islands of Frioul and Château d'If. Located just a few minutes from the Palais des Congrès and the Prado business district, the Sofitel Palm Beach Marseille is a prestigious spot where work can be pleasantly combined with relaxation. The hotel has become indispensable to all those seeking luxury, quiet and sunshine and the Mediterranean exception, where everything is blue, gold and ochre. Each of the hotel's 160 rooms, including 10 suites, has a terrace facing the sea.

Even if you are one of those people who feel a hotel is just a place to sleep at night, what fun it can be to stay in a hotel from the 17th century, full of the details that only the French seem to do so well: the decor of the rooms, beamed ceilings, a view of an ivy-covered, paved courtyard out your window. Or to breakfast in a tiny enclave downstairs with fresh croissants and fragrant coffee that you will dream about once you get back home. The fact is, Paris is loaded with hotels like this. [HOTELS OF CHARM]

Located in the district of the prestigious French high fashion design houses, near the Louvre, the Opéra and the famous Place Vendôme, Castille Paris Sofitel Demeure's decor is inspired by the French and Venitian styles, with its magnificent fresco done in the patio. 86rooms and 21 suites. 4 non-smoking floors. "Il Cortile" Italian restaurant, under the guidance of Alain Ducasse. Bar and library lounge. 2 meeting rooms for up to 100 people.

Situated in the heart of the City of Light on the world-famous Place de la Concorde, Hôtel de Crillon is steps away from the luxurious boutiques of the Faubourg St.-Honoré, and is within walking distance of the Champs Elysées, the Avenue Montaigne, the Louvre, the Tuileries Gardens and many more of this famous city’s most acclaimed attractions.
