- Converted from a 19th century sandstone townhouse, the Hotel Lancaster is a graceful and intimate hideaway at the heart of Paris. Located just off the busy Champs Elysees, this small property set around a courtyard garden feels more like a luxurious private home than hotel. Guests are encouraged to relax as though they?re personal guests and make the most of the hotel?s elegant salons, garden and cozy bar. There are just 46 rooms and 11 suites, which are beautifully decorated with traditional furniture and textiles, antiques and classical paintings while at the same time being equipped with modern amenities such as air conditioning, WiFi and plasma TVs. Dining at the Lancaster is a not-to-be-missed gastronomic experience ? from the hearty, fresh breakfast through to the fine dining menus created by the hotel?s very own master chef.
