Seldom does reality exceed our expectations and when it does -- well, that’s Paris. For a city this intoxicating a stay at the Grand Hotel du Palais Royal is de rigueur. Nestled in a magnificent 18th-century building, it’s just steps away from the Louvre, rue Saint-Honoré and the Tuileries Gardens. With rooms designed by Pierre-Yves Rochon, a Carita spa and balconies that overlook the effervescent nights of Montmartre, leaving to explore Paris might be harder than you think.
