THE LEGENDARY HOTELS.  THE VERY ELITE, LA CRÈME DE LA CRÈME.           

BY MAXIMILLIEN de LAFAYETTE 

Not because, they offer their guests, the state of the art computers gadgets, communications facilities, fitness and training centers, Tantric massages,  Yoga lessons, and all the silly stuff and mimics "nouveaux riches" are impressed by. Non, cher monsieur. The classy aristocratic hotels in Paris  are not crafted for those who made a fast buck on Wall Street or traded online while joking around Central Park. These hotels are the jewels of Paris. They are the world's very elite, because they have class, aristocratic flair, a real blue blood signature...because they did not change their Louis XIV chandelier for  high tech light spots and buzzing neon...

They are the real thing! Furnitures  are of "de l'epoque", the culinary flair is Cordon Bleu de rigeur with "un soupcon" de Babette...Because every single detail, from the curve of an antique Louis Treize chair, to the  Style Empire linen broderies, and from the signed Gobelin's friendship with an unspoiled historic hanging wall...and from the choice of art objects to their discreet marriage to the colors whispering in the fire place and the fatale scent of Parisian coquettes...Madame, Monsieur, because of that and this, and this and that, and for these Parisian hotels  never changed since la joie de vivre and "mysteres de Paris" were born. Everything is impeccable there.

Even the doorman will talk to you about Baudelaire, Proust, Kafka and Madame de Pompadour...It is perfection, ladies and gentlemen. It is the French culture and the intoxicating Parisian allure, style and delightfully treacherous French sophistication...and I love it. This is why, I am bringing to you, on a silver dish with one million wishes trembling in champagne and scandals...I am brining to you, the World's Hotels Elite! The unmercifully stunning and blue blood Parisian hotels...
