February 25, 2011 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Le Royal Monceau, ParisArt lovers traveling to Paris won't want to miss a stay at Le Royal Monceau, the legendary palace hotel that recently got a top-to-bottom makeover by design guru Philippe Starck. The hotel itself resembles a contemporary art gallery with fantastic pieces on display in the garden and public areas, and custom-designed decor and artwork in the guest rooms. There's also an in-house cinema and a contemporary art bookstore, soon featuring screens broadcasting live feeds of international art auctions. But Le Royal Monceau goes one step further for art aficionados. The hotel also offers an Art Concierge to arrange personalized art-themed itineraries to Paris museums and galleries. And the hotel itself morphs into a gallery to showcase cutting-edge artists. Check out the hotel's Art for Breakfast blog for the skinny on the latest happenings around town, plus interviews with leading artists.
