Slated to open its doors in 2018, La Clef Champs-Élysées Paris is located in the 16th arrondissement, in the quaint five-storey Haussmann-style building along Rue de Bassano. Few locations capture the heartbeat and wonderment of Paris quite as well as Paris’ 16th arrondissement, a charmingly romantic area between Trocadéro and the Avenue des Champs-Elysées, where one of the most iconic monuments in the City of Lights lies - the Arc de Triomphe.
Exploring the beautiful area is best done on foot. A short 5-minute stroll from the suites will lead you to the world-famous Champs-Élysées shopping belt where high fashion houses sit among high street labels. Lying just a stone’s throw away is a veritable variety of classic French bistros, restaurants and bakeries, or as it is known to the French, boulangeries. Treat yourself to a meal at one of Paris’ hottest dining spots, L'Atelier Etoile de Joël Robuchon, and satisfy your sweet tooth with the macarons from the well-loved Pierre Hermé located in the Publicis Drugstore just two blocks away from Rue de Bassano.
For your culture trip, amble along the Avenue George V and you’ll find yourself transported to a picturesque 19th-century cityscape crisscrossed by wide boulevards and the River Seine. Beyond the Alma-Marceau sub-way station is a plethora of museums and landmarks, including the Paris Museum of Modern Art, known for their 20th-century art and contemporary exhibitions in eastern wing of Palais de Tokyo, the engaging Quai Branly Museum located across the river and of course, the single most ironic Parisian monument, the Eiffel Tower. Pack a light picnic of croissants and baguettes from the Josephine’s Boulangerie sitting on the avenue adjacent to the serviced suites, and settle down on the grass in the park surrounding the tower.
At the end of a beautifully fulfilling Parisian adventure, return to La Clef Champs-Élysées Paris apartments to rejuvenate yourself. Set in a 19th-century building designed by architect Ricardo Bofill, La Clef Champs-Élysées Paris is a contemporary embodiment of the Parisian art de vivre.
