The Hôtel de Crillon in Paris is one of the oldest luxury hotels in the world. Situated in the heart of the City on the world-famous Place de la Concorde, it is steps away from the luxurious boutiques of the Faubourg St-Honoré, and is within walking distance of the Champs Elysées, the Avenue Montaigne, the Louvre, the Tuileries Gardens… The hotel was the favorite of the Joseph P. Kennedy family and royal families. In 1758, the eminent architect Jacques-Ange Gabriel drew up the plans, in 1788, the Comte de Crillon acquired it, and gave it his name. The Crillon remained a family home until 1907, before being turned into a hotel in 1909. This property belongs to the Louvre Hotels Group.
