Hotel Type

Small Luxury Hotel

Long a name in the higher echelons of boutique hoteliers, Michel Reybier's La Reserve has proven its small-hotel luxury aesthetic in cities like Geneva and St. Tropez. Building on its collection of private luxury apartments in Paris's Trocadero, La Reserve brings a new hotel concept to a convenient location between Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré and Avenue Montaigne. Designed as a more private residence-style hotel, its protected 19th Century façade is tucked behind a hedge of mature trees with red lacquered doorway. Inside, the Jacques Garcia-designed lobby that takes you to another era with its original marble mantles, ornate tapestries and textured upholsteries that ooze an aristocratic glamour you'd expect to find at nearly Elysées Palace and not at a hotel. With just 40-guest rooms and a guest-only policy for most common areas, the feeling of a private mansion prevails throughout the paneled library, in-house restaurant Le Garbiel and basement spa complete with a swimmers lap pool lined in candlelight.

The Room

While many will compare La Reserve to its nearby Plaza Athenee and Le Bristol competition, a more intimate hotel experience awaits with collection of just 14 guest rooms and 26 suites. Outfitted by Jacques Garcia, historic architecture is mixed with silk trimmed walls, herringbone parquet and baroque detailing that exude a timeless grandeur. Bathrooms are lined in Carrara and Turquin blue marble with oversize rain showers and separate baths. Details like private wine cellars and in-room bars are well curated with premium vintages and gourmet items with a local flair.
