Expert review of Hôtel Lancaster

Marlene Dietrich's gloriously romantic Parisian hotel hideout.

My favourite place to stay near the Champs-Elysées is perfect for a quiet weekend à deux. Built as a private house for a Spanish aristocrat in the 19th century, it was extended and converted into a hotel in the 1920s and although there are now 57 rooms and suites it still feels wonderfully intimate. This is luxury with class, with courteous service, all the mod cons you could want and a chauffeur-driven car on hand.

Location: 

A side street just off the Champs-Elysées: well placed for luxury shopping or business but without the brashness of the Champs itself.

Bedrooms: 

Beautiful, individually styled rooms are decorated with antique ormolu clocks, marquetry furniture, old master paintings and opulent satin fabrics. The standard rooms are perhaps a little small for the price but still impeccably tasteful. Prize for sensuality goes to the languorous lilac-toned suite where Marlene Dietrich hid out for three years.
