Le Bristol Paris is the best hotel in France!
The first fully renovated Parisian hotel, showcase of the French art de vivre, Le Bristol Paris has, for the second year running, been included in one of the most prestigious American listings: the World’s Best Awards of Travel+Leisure magazine.
Following a swift climb in recognition, Le Bristol is nominated best French hotel in the category “Top Large City Hotels” in Europe, dethroning defending champions the Ritz Paris and the Four Seasons George V, placed second and third, respectively.
This recognition, which follows 2013’s triumph of coming top in Condé Nast Traveller’s ranking of European hotels, confirms Le Bristol Paris’ position at the top of French hotels.
Our unique location, exceptional gastronomy supervised by head chef Eric Frechon, who runs two restaurants, with one and three Michelin stars respectively, the biggest hotel garden of Paris, and above all, the exemplary service of our teams are the secret of our success.
Travel+Leisure, a magazine dedicated to travel and the best destinations makes a yearly list of the best hotels of every country in the world. The selection is made mostly through an online questionnaire filled out by readers.
The results are great news for French tourism, as five Parisian hotels are listed: Le Bristol Paris, the Ritz, the Four Seasons George V, the Plaza Athénée and Le Meurice all appear in the list of the top 15 hotels in Europe.
Didier Le Calvez, CEO of Le Bristol Paris is “most honoured by this distinction. To be France’s top hotel at the World’s Best Awards in Travel+Leisure was one of our objectives and testifies to our teams’ commitment to the hotel, and especially that of Chef Eric Frechon. Travel+Leisure here acknowledges Le Bristol’s recent renovations of over 150 million euros, a moment of rebirth for our establishment, through which we have retained our original elegance and French art de vivre, which have brought the hotel such great renown.”
