When you step into the Hôtel Plaza Athénée, it’s like magic. Surrounded by stunning floral arrangements and glittering chandeliers, you can’t help but fall in love with the most beautiful hotel in Paris!
I’ve had several opportunities to shoot at the Plaza and couldn’t ask for a dreamier backdrop for photos. When planning my shoot with Sacrebleu Paris (a concierge company here in Paris that can put together an amazing itinerary for your trip to Paris – and which I highly recommend!) we knew the Plaza just had to be one of our locations. One of their suites was famously featured in Sex and the City, where Carrie Bradshaw stayed in Paris!Located on the famous Avenue Montaigne, we enjoyed a lovely breakfast with the most incredible view of the Eiffel Tower from one of their gorgeous balcony suites. Decorated with their iconic red geraniums, can you imagine waking up to that view?! In fact I was lucky enough to do just that a little over a year ago, one of my best hotel experiences ever…if they would let me I would probably move in! At that time my visit included a tour of the hotel, getting a peek at the stunning Alain Ducasse restaurant…truly a sight to see! Although I haven’t dined in the restaurant, I imagine it would be a memorable experience.
The history of the Plaza is also linked to M. Christian Dior. He opened his couture atelier near the hotel, and showed his inaugural collection there. Today, the Hôtel Plaza Athénée is home to the Dior Institut salon and spa.
As this is one of my favorite hotels in Paris, I hope you enjoy the images that we created!Model: Alma Bremond
