Book Virtuoso Hotels Online

We hear from clients that there are times they want to book a Virtuoso hotel on the weekend or at night when we are not available.  Other clients have said they don't want to "bother me" with a quick hotel booking.  While I am never "bothered" by a client's request for a Virtuoso hotel booking, I do agree that sometimes you just want to quickly make that booking on your phone or computer.  In order to receive the exclusive Virtuoso amenities, however, you have to make that booking through us. 

We have responded to the needs of our clients and have recently introduced the option of booking your Virtuoso hotels on your phone or computer while still ensuring your VIP treatment by the hotel staff and access to the exclusive amenities you can only get by booking through us. 

It is really easy to make your hotel booking and still receive our personal service.

La Réserve Hotel & Spa Paris

La Réserve Hotel & Spa Paris embodies romance and elegance.  As a guest of this hotel, you experience authentic Parisian hospitality in the former 19th Century home of Pierre Cardin.  It truly feels like you are a guest in someone’s home.  You sit in the living room to check-in and get to know the wonderful staff.  By the end of your stay, you feel you are leaving a friend’s home.  If you can stay in a room with a view, it is a Million Dollar view.  You can overlook the Eiffel Tower, the Grand Palais, Pantheon and the Concorde obelisk.  Gabriel Avenue is set back on a very quiet, lovely street a stone’s throw from the Champs-Elysées.  At the end of a long day exploring the city, you feel like you are returning home to be pampered by the staff with a glass of wine and a fabulous meal.  A rare treat in Paris, La Réserve has an underground pool with stunning red lacquer décor.  It is a great way to escape the bustle of the city to experience a spa treatment and dip in the pool.

Once settled in our room, our wonderful butler took this picture in our room.  What a view!!

I had the pleasure of experiencing this fabulous hotel during my last stay in Paris.  It was December, and the holiday decorations were so pretty, and the hotel had such a warm, cozy feel to it.  We checked-in with a roaring fire in the living room.  Our butler spent so much time helping us get settled into the room.  She also set up our phone to the entertainment system, helping us feel right at home.  Our room was so beautiful, and the bed was ridiculously comfortable.  

Our stay at La Réserve was much too short.  It is the perfect hotel for a romantic stay in this beautiful city.
