Paris hotel with views of Montmartre and the Paris skyline

With a base near the Champs-Elysees, Hotel California Champs Elysees maintains timeless elegance with modern flair. The hotel overflows with glamour, starting with the luxurious lobby with sky-high ceilings and sparkling chandeliers. Rooms capture the romance of Paris with high-end furniture and accessories, plus views of Montmartre and Paris rooftops. Beyond the rooms, guests have more motivation to linger, especially when the reason is a cocktail at Le Rouge Marine Bar or a fine French meal by the courtyard fountain.

Highlights
  • Glamorous Paris hotel near the Champs-Elysees
  • Elegant bar and restaurant serving French favorites with a twist
  • Wi-Fi access
  • Multiple room types for families and singles
Location

As its name suggests, Hotel California Champs Elysees is in a prime spot near Paris' most celebrated street. Guests take advantage of all the major monuments in the area, including the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe and the Tuileries Gardens.

 

Rooms

Guests unwind in style at Hotel California Champs Elysees. Rooms showcase the finest linens, handsome wood furniture and tasteful accents to create visual drama. Glamorous accessories burst with color, including lipstick red throw pillows and blankets with bold black and red Greek key designs. A bounty of room layouts caters to all types of travelers, from singles to families. Regardless of room type--duplex suite, family room or otherwise--patrons find comfort in these standard amenities: free Wi-Fi, marble or modern bathrooms, safe, mini bar and satellite TV.

Dining

When hunger strikes, guests don't have to leave Hotel California Champs Elysees for fine dining. Le Cadre D'Or, the on-site restaurant, dishes up traditional French cuisine with a twist. Signatures like pork cocoa-flavored filet taste even more delicious in the grandiose setting. Think crystal chandeliers, white tablecloths and a charming courtyard complete with fountain.

 

For cocktails, visitors belly up to Le Rouge Marine Bar, which is open from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. during weekdays and 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. on weekends.

Dining

Lounge Bar
A superb place to start or end your evening in a softly lighted musical atmosphere. The impressive selection of whiskies (over 200 brands) tells a lot about the bar's history. Comprising a veritable encyclopedia of malt and popularized for over eighty years by well-known American journalists, who made it the annex of their newspaper until the seventies, the Htel California bar is an iconic landmark. Hollywood actors like Clark Gable or the Elizabeth Taylor-Richard Burton duo, as well as authors like Orson Wells and Ernest Hemingway, enjoyed stopping by during their stays in the French capital. It's also the place to have a warm drink at any time of day and relax in a prestigious setting.
Restaurant Le Cadre d'Or
All day long, the inventive cuisine of chef Gilles Courtin, who brilliantly combines the best of local French produce and products, offers a captivating and creative menu selection
Patio
An intimate, relaxing setting just steps from the bustle of the Avenue des Champs Elyses. The patio is open for lunch and dinner or for sipping a cocktail in the shade of a parasol next to a tinkling fountain. Tables are arranged around the patio in such a way that they provide intimacy within a harmonious layout. The arrangement is ideal for business meals, which are served with the necessary speed and discretion. Open from April to October, depending on the weather.

We had a wonderful trip!

When we checked in, our concierge treated us exceptionally well! He was gracious and listened to our requests! We were treated like royalty! We love Paris and can't wait to return. Especially to the Hotel California.

Will not repaet staying in this Hotel

I have booked a superior room in this hotel. Surprisingly I found the room in a very poor condition (Room # 127). On the following day new reception staff had understood my complain and agreed to change the room. I found most of the reception staff were helpless and mostly un smiled face except a very few of them. I will never ever repeat the mistake of selecting this hotel.

5 Stars for Hotel California, Paris !

From the moment we arrived at front door our experience was exceptional! The doorman, desk reception, room maid, bar/lounge, breakfast staff were so polite and accomodating to our lack of the French language! We would definately recommend Hotel California Champs Elysee to our family and friends!

Bad ending

We chose a family room -- it was cramped compared to what was shown in photos. Lobby area was great but the room rundown, the bathroom door didn't shut all the way, and the bathroom flooded with each shower as there was only half(?) of a shower door. They only put out 3 towels for 4 people. The keycards to our room stopped working. I couldn't remember whether breakfast was included and asked the front desk- they said it was and so we ate at the buffet the second morning. At checkout-- you guessed it --not included -- they charged 100 euros for the 4 of us (I had coffee and a croissant). With lots of discussion at numerous levels they reduced it to 75. Would not go back or recommend.
