THINGS TO DO IN PARIS
Enjoy each other’s company before your bundle of joy arrives and spend your Paris babymoon at the luxurious five star Le Royal Monceau, Raffles Paris.
Le Royal Monceau, Raffles Paris is in short chic, sophisticated and surprising. The hotel represents the next generation of Palace hotels in the heart of Paris. Within walking distance of the Arc de Triomphe, Champs Elysées and beautiful Parc Monceau, it is now, as it has always been, one of the essential spots in which to experience the beauty, style and social buzz of this truly extraordinary city.
