Moulin Rouge and Le Crazy Horse Provide Sizzling Parisian Entertainment

Jul 29, 2014  |   Contributor: Sean Hillen

After feasting on tasty patisseries, fine wines and French gourmet food, fancy something different in the City of Light? An evening’s entertainment at the Le Crazy Horse or Le Moulin Rouge in Paris might just be the ticket. The Féerie show at Le Moulin Rouge involves between around 40 male and female dancers on stage (often altogether) dressed (sometimes not so dressed) in costumes ranging from flamboyant ostrich feathers to transparent silk to colorful military uniforms. The performances make for a wonderful experience, transporting one back to the days of the late 19th century La Belle Époque and Henri... Read More

Jul 28, 2014  |   Contributor: Sean Hillen

Location, location, location — if what the property experts say is true, then the Grand Hotel Du Palais Royal on Rue Saint-Honoré in central Paris couldn’t be more well-placed. Standing on our narrow fifth-floor balcony, a delightful view of La Basilique du Sacré Cœur de Montmartre can be seen to the right, and to the left, the Louvre. A short, three-minute walk brings one to the famed museum's glass pyramid, Comédie-Française and the banks of the Siene, and right into the heart of the fashion district.

Jun 17, 2014  |   Contributor: Sean Hillen

Formerly the home of Napoleon Bonaparte’s grand-nephew Roland, Shangri-La Hotel Paris is as elegant a hotel property as you’re likely to find in the City of Lights. From its tall, impressive black cast iron gateway on Avenue d’Ilena, domed entryway and giant Ming dynasty-inspired porcelain vases to the intricately-ornate ceiling of the grand ballroom and perfectly-proportioned staircase leading to it, the 101-room (including 36 suites) Shangri-La oozes class.

The First Bikini Debuted Here in '46 & Today This Hotel Looks to Return to its Glory Days

Jun 11, 2014  |   Contributor: Nicolle Monico

If you lived in Paris during the late ‘20s and early ‘30s, you may remember the Art Deco Piscine Molitor hotel in the 16th arrondissement, one of the most popular properties in the city at that time. It was opened by Olympic swimming champion and actor Johnny Weissmuller, who played Tarzan in the 1930s and 1940s. But the hotel made its name for itself for another reason; it was there that the first bikini designed by Louis Réard was debuted at the pool in 1946.

Mandarin Oriental Hotel Combines Oriental Serenity with Unmistakable Parisian Elegance

May 28, 2014  |   Contributor: Sean Hillen

Gazing out through my sixth floor window at the inner garden courtyard of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Paris, I was intrigued to see several beehives on a ledge, their flighty inhabitants innocently at play. I later learned that the hotel hosts around 50,000 bees, which thrive in the pesticide-free Parisian environment and help pollinate the sweet-smelling flowers in the garden terrace (where the Camélia restaurant is housed). They also provide more than 30 kilos of delicious honey for chefs’ use in desserts and other dishes.

Apr 11, 2014  |   Contributor: Nicolle Monico

France is remarkable; a place known for its pastries, luxury shopping and storied past filled with artists such as Picasso, Monet, and Degas; and at one time was one of the most powerful countries in Europe.
