Virtuoso Traveler - October/November 2017 - 14
The City of Light shines a bit brighter these days, thanks to the return
of the iconic Hôtel de Crillon, a Rosewood Hotel in the place de la
Concorde. After a four-year, multimillion-dollar renovation, the 124room hotel reopened its neoclassical doors in July. Master craftspeople
and French artisans took meticulous care to preserve the palatial
1758 building, while giving it new life via revamped guest rooms;
sophisticated, art-driven public spaces; an indoor pool with a glass
ceiling; and the new Les Ambassadeurs lounge. Doubles from $1,410;
Virtuoso travelers receive breakfast daily and a $100 dining credit.

while avoiding the traffic on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge."

with the inn's resident expert."
