The 109-year-old Sofitel Legend Metropole has been entertaining dignitaries and celebrities for decades with its old-world charm, antiques-filled rooms, and Parisian-style cafés. Now, a four-year, $20 million renovation has tripled the room count to 364, introduced a full-service spa, and effectively created two distinct properties that function as one: the original building, whose colonial allure has been subtly retouched, and a new seven-story wing that evokes the drama of the nearby Opera House, from the crimson velvet drapes behind reception to the ubiquitous bouquets of red roses. Brocade upholstery, gilded mirrors, and silver lacquer vases heighten the sense of grandeur, and even the corridors are swoon-worthy, with black-and-white-striped wallpaper and red-and-yellow floral carpeting. Rooms include comfortable beds with chocolate-brown leather headboards and cherry-red velour armchairs, beside which macaroons are left at turndown. With additional upgrades like a business center and Clef d'Or concierges, the re-do merits thunderous applause. Only the new Italian steak house, Angelina, is a flashy disappointment (stick with the original Metropole eateries).
