Belle Etoile Royal Suite (300 sq m/3230 sq ft)
Nothing compares. The Belle Etoile suite is quite simply the most stunning in Paris.
Located high above the rooftops on the seventh floor, this unique suite lays Paris and its monuments at your feet. The 250 square metres (2691 sq ft) of private terrace offer an extraordinary 360° view from Notre Dame to the Musée d'Orsay, from the Eiffel Tower to the Grand Palais, from Place de la Concorde to the Arc de Triomphe, from the Opera to the Sacré Coeur.
Equally spectacular are the dimensions of the suite: 275 square metres (2960 sq ft) of magnificence and light, decorated in a nineteenth-century style, with private elevator access, sitting room, dining room, walk-in closet and bedroom with a bathroom in exquisite Italian marble. There is also a pantry and a kitchen for a butler and personal chef.
The suite's architecture recalls such Parisian landmarks as the Eiffel Tower and the Petit Palais, a characteristic style of the late nineteenth century in which metal and glass combine with the green patina of zinc roofs.
The master bedroom features a spacious bed with a midnight-blue canopy from which to admire the Place Vendôme column, the Opéra Garnier and the Sacré Coeur. The bedroom leads into a magnificent, 25 square-metre walk-in closet and, from here, a magical bathroom. This precious marble jewel is appointed with a whirlpool bath and multi-jet shower. It too offers an unforgettable view of Paris. Sink into the tub and admire Montmartre and the Sacré Coeur on one side, the Musée d'Orsay and the golden dome of the Invalides on the other.
The Belle Etoile suite communicates with two bedrooms on the sixth floor to form a duplex, or with a bedroom on the seventh floor. With the addition of these rooms, the Belle Etoile suite forms a single 370 square-metre space with four bedrooms.
When at night the city lights merge with the twinkling stars, and the full moon hovers above the Louvre, the tableau is complete. The Belle Etoile suite is Paris' brightest star, which Le Meurice dedicates to the kings and queens of our world.
