 The History of the Hotel De Paris is one that is closely linked with the very best in luxury and Monaco. Founded in 1863 the enterprise has played its part in the birth of Monte-Carlo and the Societe des Bains de Mer, and has continued to be fundamental in modern developments and in introducing new lifestyle trends. It was Prince Charles III, who had ambitions for the town of Monte-Carlo. The Societe des Bains de Mer Casino was to rise and around this there were plans for some of the finest luxury hotels and gardens to be built.
 The hotels would beat those in Paris, London and New York. The Casino opened in 1863 and it was to become a great success. Francois Blanc, arriving from Homburg, bought the property from Societe des Bains de Mer and Cercle des Etrangers de Monaco. He went on to keep the wishes of the Prince in mind and reinforced all of the principles of Monaco, a place of luxury lifestyle and comfort.
 Along with the Casino, the Cafe de Paris and the Hotel De Paris, gardens and villas sprang up and transformed the Plateau des Spelugues, at this time it was decided that the town should have a fitting name. In 1886, Prince Charles III declared the Commune of Monaco that was between Sainte-Devote and a pathway known as "Francosi", the main road from Monaco to Menton and the seafront from this moment on would take the name, Monte-Carlo. The Hotel De Paris quickly became one of the very best of luxury hotels in Monaco. Only the most famous of interior architects were selected during the construction of the hotel to ensure the very best of amenities.
It was not long before an extension was built onto the luxury hotel, and the first guests to stay at the hotel were dazzled by the luxurious lifestyle design. The Cafe de Paris opened in 1868 and along with the Place du Casino completed the "Magic Triangle". Monaco soon rose past all expectations with the help of the Hotel De Paris, when in 1969, it saw over 170,000 tourists and became home to prestigious clientele. At one point in the history of the hotel between the two World Wars, there were 7 Kings staying at the Hotel De Paris.

 It is often very hard to find a luxury 5-star hotel that actually lives up to expectations. However, with its state of the art facilities in an amazing location and first-class service, the Hotel De Paris does live up to that reputation. The rooms with breathtaking sea, port and castle views are large and luxurious offering every comfort and luxury, one could ever wish for, the bathrooms, superb in design with large shower and double sinks. Staff is always very attentive, with a butler at your disposal on arrival to show your room and around the facilities, in short one of the very best levels of service possible.
 Choices of restaurants are superb, for instance the "Cote Jardin", the "Grill", the "Salle d'Empire" and the superb Louis XV all of them with one of the finest selections of food on their menus. Unforgetable are the cocktails in the "Bar Americain" with it's pianist playing great tunes till late in the evening. The Hotel De Paris does not disappoint, and provides guests lifestyle with a 5-star luxury experience that can be very seldom found.
