From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
Since the new Paris Hilton is a real ocean liner of a hotel—with 525 rooms, it's the largest to be built in the City of Light since World War II—it makes sense that designer Alexandre Danan resorted to the same Art Deco decor that made the French Line's fabled La Normandie feel both luxurious and intimate. The profligate use of expensive materials—rosewood, black and green granite, marble (in the mosaic work)—doesn't hurt. Sure, standard doubles are a bit snug, but they work, from the reproduction Arte drawings and quality beds and bedding to a tempting 24-hour room service menu and all the requisite twenty-first-century technology. A great location, a lavish Carita spa and well-equipped gym, a happening lounge bar, and a surprisingly good restaurant, Le Safran, reveal a Hilton unshackled from the rest of the chain.—2005 Hot List
