Touches of Shangri-La in Paris

Five star hotel, Paris

Shangri-La dining in Paris

Oh, let us dream a little.  We love Paris.  We plan to take a trip … soon.  Shall we plan to visit the home of a Bonaparte relative?  Don’t be too hasty or negative with your reply!

The fictional Shangri-La emerged in Lost Horizon, the 1933 novel by James Hilton; but there is a real Shangri-La in Paris – one every bit as appealing as Hilton’s harmonious valley.  Said to be “a royal reception in the legendary city of lights”, the Shangri-La Hotel once was home to Napoleon Bonaparte’s grandnephew, Prince Roland Bonaparte, proving absolutely that rank indeed has its privilege.

In our favorite city, with a multitude of fine hotel offerings, the Shangri-La Hotel represents a beacon of refined style with an attentive staff that mirrors their good taste in serving guests.  Reflecting European Empire taste with subdued ecru, blue and white décor; the hotel is beautifully appointed with a stunning mix of textures and custom furnishings.

And I didn’t even mention the spectacular views of the Seine and Le Tour Eiffel.  Paris obviously enjoys quite a number of five-star hotels, and the Shangri-La well deserves its ranking among the best.  When the weekend approaches, isn’t it delightful to imagine remarkably beautiful places?

We’d love to hear from you!
