Location. This classic 1930s Art Deco building houses a boutique hotel in the Right Bank's exclusive 17th arrondissement, less than two kilometres from the Parc Monceau, the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Elys?es. The nearest airport is Charles de Gaulle Airport, 30 kilometres away.
Hotel Features. Many of the hotel's original 1930s Art Deco architectural details have been preserved, such as the large stained glass panels by the sculptor Gr?ber which decorate the lower level breakfast room and bar. The lobby lounge is styled with a 1930s club atmosphere, with deep sofas, low lighting, dramatic sculptures, and a large selection of international fashion and business magazines. Guests can plan a day's sightseeing using the hotel's high speed computer station (surcharge) in the lobby lounge, or quiz staff at the 24 hour front desk for tips on local attractions.
The stylish breakfast room features Art Deco stained glass windows, tall ceilings, orange walls and chrome detailing; a buffet breakfast is served daily for a fee.
The Parc de Monceau, less than one kilometre from the hotel, is a popular place for jogging in Paris, and has play areas for children.
Guestrooms. The Best Western Mercedes has 37 air conditioned guestrooms on eight floors. All rooms have white walls hung with framed prints or paintings, and dark wood Art Deco style furnishings. Amenities include LCD flatscreen TVs with satellite channels, direct dial phones, high speed and wireless Internet connections (surcharge), safes, and minibars. Tiled bathrooms have chrome fittings, mosaic tile details, hair dryers, and slate floors.
Expert Tip. The hotel is one metro stop away from the Parc Monceau, with its manicured gardens designed in the romantic style of the late 1800s. Overlooking the gardens are two of Paris' lesser known museums: the Mus?e Nissim de Camondo is the reconstruction of an 18th century aristocratic mansion, and the Mus?e Cernuschi contains the municipal collection of Chinese arts, restored and reopened in 2005.
