112, rue du Faubourg Saint-Honore,75008 Paris, France
When the Beckham brood stays at a hotel for a full five months, you know it has to be special. Try competing with a Parisian family-friendly hotel that boasts of a hard-to-find kids’ club, treasure hunts for the little ones, a garden courtyard, not one but two Michelin-starred restaurants and a clientele that includes Charlie Chaplin and Grace Kelly of Monaco. Did I mention it is also France’s first hotel to be declared a Palace?
