Grande Dame of Luxury Le Bristol Paris’ Josephine Baker Suite

For nearly a century, the iconic Le Bristol Paris has seduced the world’s elite from its prominent location at 112 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, near the Élysée Palace.

The first hotel in Paris to be classified as “Palace,” a notch above 5-star, Le Bristol Paris is part of the family- owned Oetker Collection, whose portfolio also includes the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc and Eden Rock St Barths.

Le Bristol Paris’ classic 18th-century design can be experienced in its 190 rooms and suites, including the recently renovated Suite 1925—also known as the Josephine Baker Suite—on the 7th floor boasting an enviable view of the Eiffel Tower and Parisian rooftops.

Situated in the Matignon wing, this jewel box of silk, cashmere and precious materials, also features photographs taken at the hotel of Josephine Baker, an habitué of Le Bristol Paris. In fact, it was at Le Bristol Paris that Josephine Baker celebrated her 50th birthday with Sophia Loren, Mick Jagger and Princess Grace of Monaco in April 1975.

Over the years, Le Bristol Paris’ reputation for outstanding service and utmost discretion has continued to attract a loyal clientele and the hotel recently had the honor of winning the Leading Hotels of the World “2019 Happy Guest” Award.
