Staying at the Trémoille

So, to wrap up my series on the three wonderful hotels we stayed at in Paris and Amsterdam, here is my post-trip report on the five-star Hotel de la Trémoille. I knew it would be terrific, but it exceeded my expectations in every respect. The hotel is an elegant bastion of refined service, classic French decor, with lovely rooms and appointments.

In our forthcoming revised fourth edition of Open Road’s Best of Paris, which is due out in print next month and which you can pre-order now at amazon by clicking here, we selected the Trémoille as one of our favorite hotels in Paris. Here is the full review from our guidebook:

“La Trémoille is located not far from the Arc de Triomphe, a few blocks from the Champs-Elysées in what is known as the “Golden Triangle.” Originally built in 1883, La Trémoille is now a modern hotel that underwent extensive renovations ten years ago. There are 93 elegant rooms, including 13 suites, decorated in more than 30 color schemes.

“And here’s something you don’t see everyday: they have installed a private compartment (a “Hatch,” they call it) in each room opening up to the hallway, so that room service can be brought to and from your room without their staff entering your room. Now that’s privacy! The rooms are refined, comfortable, spacious and sound-proofed. You will find plush fabrics, Molton Brown bath products, a small terrace or, if you book a suite, you’ll be treated to panoramic city views from a private balcony.

“There is a fitness center (really a workout room), spa, and sauna. The bar and sitting area just off the lobby (see photo above) is a welcome amenity after a long day of tramping around the city. And the hotel’s restaurant, Louis 2, is a good alternative if you wish to stay in for the night, although there are plenty of other good restaurants within a five-minute walk.

And that’s our write-up for this wonderful hotel. We had such a great time here we’re sure you will too. Consider the luxurious Trémoille next time you’re in Paris.
