- Grand Hotel du Palais Royal


Reopening on 1 December 2012, the five-star Grand Hotel du Palais Royal is adjacent to the Palais Royal Garden, just a minute's walk from Le Louvre and just off the Rue Saint-Honore, making it ideal for high-end incentive groups. The interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon has overseen the refurbishment of the hotel, which has 69 rooms and suites and is a member of the Preferred Hotel Group.
