Hotel of the week: Le Meurice, Paris
At this 177-year-old Paris institution, the Eiffel Tower is visible from every room.
The hotel that Owen Wilson stays at in Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris just might be the film’s “most beautiful character,” said Stephen McGinty in the Edinburgh Scotsman. Located on the famous Rue de Rivoli opposite the Tuileries Garden, the 177-year-old Paris institution sits a five-minute walk from the Louvre, but guests can’t be faulted for staying in to enjoy their views of the Eiffel Tower, which is visible from every room. Downstairs, the Restaurant Le Meurice offers more than a three-star Michelin rating. With its “starched napery, crystal chandeliers, and marble fireplaces,” it just might be the most gorgeous room in the world. lemeurice.com; doubles from $640
