The Bristol, a palace with a garden

December 14, 2011

The last but not least episode of our saga dedicated to Parisian palaces. Opened in April 1925, the Bristol was named after the Count of Bristol, a British gentleman. During World War II, the hotel became the official residence place for American expatriates as it was the only hotel in Paris that had an anti-gas shelter. In the following decades, the hotel gained a worldwide prestige but suffered from a growing competition from surrounding hotels and palaces. The management decided to strike back and launched a spectacular renovation in 2004. They capitalized on the French garden (the largest of all Parisian palaces) and totally revamped the design of the 256 rooms (including 70 suites). The new setting is stunning

Chef Eric Frechon who runs the Bristol restaurant has been awarded three Michelin stars. His divine cuisine will treat the most demanding gourmets with mouthwatering dishes such as the Pigeon from Bresse or the milk chocolate mousse. He has himself defined his cuisine as a mix of tradition and modernity, in sync with the hotel new positioning.
