The 1928 Art Deco-style property, part of Starwood's Luxury Collection of hotels, is scheduled to reopen in the first quarter of 2013 following a complete refit. The hotel has 168 rooms and six meeting spaces, the largest of which, the Salon Panache, can seat 200 delegates. The hotel's fine-dining restaurant, Le Jardin des Cygnes, boasts an outside patio and the hotel will have a new fitness and health centre when it reopens. It is located on the Avenue George V.

- 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.
