December 11, 2015 | talktraveltome | Leave a comment Paris is a city that has captivated visitors with it’s undeniable sense of style. It can be seen while watching Parisians walk along the busy streets, around every corner and down hidden side streets. This sense of style has been embodied by Hotel Chavanel, located in Le Madeleine, arguably one of the most chic and luxurious neighborhoods in all of Paris. Hotel Chavanel, a family owned boutique hotel, brings that Parisian sense of style alive the moment guests walk through door. As we entered the hotel, we were greeted with an almost pop-up looking boutique clothing shop. Although we are no fashion experts, the racks of clothing gave us a glimpse into the latest fashion trends. After checking out the clothes, we made our way into the cool lounge area complete with a birdcage seat and a calmness created by the blue and tan color scheme. This 27-room boutique hotel also subtly showcases the French style throughout all six floors. The room decor includes custom made French lace curtains, cashmere throws and unique lighting that ranges from funky table lamps to backlit headboards. The design of the headboard in our Deluxe room was definitely on of our favorites, as well as the flower light outside all the rooms. Besides the beautiful decor, there is also an emphasis on the importance of eating organically. This was the first hotel we’ve stayed in that boasts a 100% organic breakfast. Their organic breakfast buffet, located in a stone walled vaulted cellar, focuses on fresh and high quality produce that guests can enjoy when starting their day! For those looking to do a little shopping in Paris, Hotel Chavanel is also in the perfect location. As mentioned above, it’s located in the Le Madeleine neighborhood which is filled with luxury department stores and boutiques. We spent much of our time walking around the streets, taking in the sights and doing a little window shopping. Around the corner from Chanvanel is the Galeries Lafayette flagship store located on Boulevard Haussman. The Galeries Lafayette is an upscale department store with tons of shops to browse. It’s also beautifully decorated during the holiday season, so be sure to visit if your in Paris that time of year. Hotel Chavanel is also in a historical part of Paris and only a few minute walk from the Palais Garnier. The Palais Garnier, also referred to as the Opera, is considered by some as the most famous Opera House in the world and a historic symbol of Paris. While we might not agree that it is the most famous opera house in the world (in our opinion that distinction probably belongs to the Sydney Opera House), there is no arguing that it is definitely a historic monument and absolutely worth seeing while in Paris. While staying at Hotel Chanvanel we felt they seamlessly incorporated the chic Parisian style into their hotel, allowing for the perfect atmosphere for us to explore this beautiful area of Paris. Thank you Hotel Chanvanel for hosting us during our stay in Le Madeleine neighborhood. As always, our opinions are our own as we Talk Travel.
