  Hotel de Crillon with limousine.

At the place de la Concorde, on the left corner of the rue Royale leading to La Madeleine, stands one of the prestige hotels of Paris.
It was a palace commissioned by King Louis XV in 1758 (architect Louis-François Trouard) and was acquired by the Count of Crillon one year before the revolution of 1789. It is said that Queen Marie-Antoinette came here for piano lessons. She could not imagine that she would pass under the guillotine in front of this palace.
The Palais de Crillon was confiscated by the revolution but the family Crillon got it back and sold it in 1907 to the Société du Louvre controlled by the family Taittinger who sold their interests in the group to Starwood. The Crillon hotel belongs now to Rosewood Hôtels and is closed for renovation.
Therefore I regret I can not give any comments about the confort of the rooms!
The Presidential suite (90 sqm, a minimum for me) at 3820 ?/night was not free during my last stay in Paris. Ordinary rooms did cost between 550 and 700 ?/night, ordinary suites between 1400 and 2200 ?/night.

On the other corner is a similar palace by the same architect. This building belongs to the French Marine and houses the Etat-Major.
