Hotel InterContinental Paris le Grand: Grandeur in the Heart of Paris

What Do the Rooms Include?

A historic landmark overlooking the majestic Palais Garnier opera house, Hotel Paris le Grand embodies the luster and poise of its Opéra neighborhood setting. Lavish guest rooms replete with Napoleonic motifs, chandeliers, and Second Empire-style furnishings are appointed with flat-screen TVs, luxurious linens, and fluffy robes. Rooms overlooking Rue de Madeleine can be noisy.

What Amenities are Available?

Built in 1862 and a dead ringer for a Napoleonic palace, the hotel's sumptuous original features seamlessly coalesce with leading-edge amenities: a 24-hour fitness center, rooftop terrace, full-service spa, and outdoor terrace facing Opera Square. As in many Paris hotels, you will find two restaurants: the iconic Le Café de la Paix and Le Verriere, a winter garden haven.

How Much Will a Stay at Hotel InterContinental Paris le Grand Cost Me?

Small, classic rooms cost upwards of $832 per night. It's worth upgrading to a larger (377 square feet) superior room or an executive suite. The much-coveted VIP Club is the prized perk of a Club room reservation ($950). The best rooms (with a second-mortgage price tag of $1,200) are junior suites which feature marble bathrooms, antique furnishings, soaring ceilings, balconies, and jaw-dropping views of Palais Garnier.

What Does the Neighborhood Offer?

The hotel is a five-minute walk from Opéra Garnier/Opéra Metro stations and a stone's throw from Paris' must-see attractions, luxury boutiques, and department stores, including the fabulous Galeries Lafayette. At every turn, elegant boulevards and commemorative monuments speak to the city's Belle Époque. The Louvre Museum, Place Vendôme, and Avenue des Champs-Élysées are within one mile. A 15-minute stroll uphill stands the artist's enclave of Montmartre and earthy Pigalle.

What's the Botttom Line?

In 2003, the InterContinental invested over $1.5 million on renovations, and it shows. As with many hotel grand dames, some rooms have their foibles; quirky dimensions often compromise functionality. InterContinental brand devotees eulogize over the VIP Club with its epicurean delights: foie gras, free-flowing champagne, and smoked salmon. Due to its scale, the hotel can feel anonymous and the service, while generally flawless, is a little erratic.

Expert Reviews
Michelin Guide
A true grand hotel typical of the 19C, the Intercontinental stands on the Place de l'Opera in the heart of Haussmann's Paris.
Travel + Leisure
Since its doors first opened in 1862, Le Grand has welcomed more than a few illustrious guests—queens, kings, and maharajahs among them.
Time Out
The space under the vast verrière is one of the best oases in town, and the hotel's restaurant and coffeehouse, the Café de la Paix, poached its chef, Laurent Delarbre, from the Ritz.
For a relaxing daytime break, head to the I-Spa for one of its seawater treatments.
