The first hotel on our list is the Hotel Le Meurice in Paris. The elegance of the hotel is unrivaled with a refined juxtaposition of 18th century opulence and contemporary chic. In addition to the aesthetic pleasure that one feels when entering the hotel, there is a rich history and culture prevalent as the hotel has been around since 1815. Renowned artist Salvador Dali was a common inhabitant of the hotel and stayed there so much that they created a restaurant, “Restaurant Le Dalí” which was created in homage of the legendary figure. Other dining options include Two-Michelin Star restaurant le Meurice Alain Ducasse. The hotel’s long lasting relationship with fine art and literature are representations of how it truly embodies the essence of Parisian culture.
Not too far away is the prestigious Hotel Alfonso XIII in Seville, Spain. The hotel has been in service since 1929. Architecturally the hotel embellishes on the aristocratic identity of the hotel as it was originally designed for the Ibero-American exposition of 1929 where the residents included kings, presidents and dignitaries. The fine carpets, coffered hanging lamps and tall arches and columns all accentuate the affluence of the hotel and its inhabitants. In addition to cultural appeal the hotel now has implemented contemporary amenities so that residents will be able to live in comfort while still soaking in the extravagance of the hotel and city.
The final hotel on our list is The Dorchester in London, United Kingdom. The hotel opened in 1930 in the affluent Mayfair district and while it has been modernized on the exterior, the interior furnishings remain as chic as ever. Past residents of the hotel include Lords, celebrities and royalty from nations around the globe. It is a large staple in pop culture with numerous references in film and entertainment. In addition to the lavish amenities that are seen immediately the hotel further extends its luxury to the dining experience as it has five restaurants, with tone of them being “Alain Ducasse,” which is one of three 2 star Michelin restaurants in all of the United Kingdom. For visitors wanting to truly immerse themselves in British culture, staying at The Dorchester is most definitely a perfect start.
All in all, Europe has always been the top destination for foreign tourism, however without identifying the institutions, which imbibe the culture of each respective country, one is merely scratching the service. Staying at the aforementioned hotels is the perfect way to immerse oneself in European culture and give visitors the ability to enjoy the authentic luxuries that Europe has to offer.
