LODGINGSThey're the biggest names in European hotels

- much celebrated and synonymous with

luxury and grandeur. They've weathered

wars, launched trends and hosted

royalty, now Square Meal gives

you the lowdown on the most

glamourous digs in Europe

WORDS MARK C O'FLAHERTY

Le Bristol, Paris

Oetker-run Le Bristol opened during the Roaring

Twenties under Hippolyte Jammet, who named

it after the sybaritic 4th Earl of Bristol. The ornate

lift alone is worth a visit and the courtyard

garden has the best people watching in the 8th

arrondissement. Eccentric touches include the

well-groomed house cats Fa-Raon and Kléopatre

- omnipresent on branding but rarely seen - and

bedroom chintz that could only work in a plush

palace hotel in the fanciest part of Paris.

Best room: The Royal Suite has elaborate painted

walls, damask hangings by Rubelli and Louis XV

and Louis XVI reproduction furniture.

Signature cocktail: The Bristol Old Fashioned

No 1, a twist on the classic featuring maple syrup

and coΠee.

Chef: Eric Frechon's three-Michelin-star L'Epicure.

Classically French, with refreshing modern twists.

The macaroni stuŒ ed with foie gras and tru’ e

is a favourite.

Guest list: Woody Allen stayed while • lming

Midnight in Paris. Josephine Baker, Sophia Loren,

Mick Jagger, Orlando Bloom, Nicholas Sarkozy

and Carla Bruni are previous visitors.

Double room B�B from £675 per night. 112 rue du

Faubourg Saint-Honoré, 75008 Paris, France;
