Upping its art game even further, the hotel has just joined forces with the exhibitions whizzes at the nearby Grand Palais on the Champs-Elysées to offer an exclusive VIP package to art lovers (from €5,500). Guests will be given insider access and private tours of shows, as well as lunch at the museum at times when it is closed to the public.
