Visitors to Paris are familiar with the Champs Elysées — the broad, tree-lined boulevard connecting the Place de la Concorde and Arc de Triomphe — and all the fashionable streets that lead from it, including Avenue George V. The flagship Louis Vuitton store and the red awning at Le Fouquets are the two gatekeepers to this stylish street, which boasts chic Hermes, Bulgari and Kenzo boutiques — and elegant hotels, including Prince de Galles, a Luxury Collection hotel.

This Art Deco hotel has welcomed sophisticates since 1929 and reopened after a total renovation in 2013. Curvaceous lines, Makassar ebony and mosaic designs mark its neo-Art Deco interior, where corridors lined with an impressive collection of photography from Vogue, published during the era, lead to 116 rooms and 43 suites.

The newest, the Lalique Suite, launched in 2019, shortly before the COVID-19 shutdown. As interpreted by German designer Patrick Hellman, the Lalique Suite showcases one-of-a-kind pieces, including iconic glass panels and the Seville Chandelier, as well as amazing views of Sacré Coeur. Réné Lalique (1860–1945) may have been born in the small city of Ay, in the Champagne region, but his name became famous worldwide for glass art creations, from glorious perfume bottles, chandeliers and vases to automotive hood ornaments. Today, Lalique extends to a luxury lifestyle brand that includes decorative objects and interior design.

The hotel also offers a fitness room and an exquisite Olivier Lecocq Wellness Suite, where the duo treatment room is ringed by mosaic-clad walls in the dressing room, shower and hammam. Bar 1920, which boasts an impressive cognac collection, also serves breakfast and small meals, and Akira, the new restaurant, will soon open behind the flower-filled lobby.

Time to Unwind

I recently returned from my second annual golf trip to Kiawah Island, where we enjoyed fantastic weather. Upon arrival, the group met for lunch at The Ryder Cup Bar, located at The Ocean Course, one of the top-ranked courses in the country. Luckily, we were not playing that day, as the wind whipped up and brought unscheduled douses of rain. As one of the caddies told me, wind gusts of 35 mph made the course unplayable. But some players braved the conditions as we sat comfortably inside enjoying our first lunch of the trip while chairs cascaded outside and players tried to keep their shots on track.
