Suffering from chandelier overload!

I generally prefer modern hotels over “classical” ones, and I’m still trying to figure out how I feel about this one. But I can’t help but notice that it has three chandeliers, which is a new hotel record for me.

I’m still trying to figure out whether the rest of the decor is worthy of Louis XIV or Hugh Hefner, though..

  1. Hotel Bristol? Was there last March and loved every minute. Slept with the windows open in the dead of winter in the most comfy bed ever!!!

  2. lucky, technically [per the hotel web site] you are “Living like an empress: The Elisabeth Suites are named after the great empress, consort of Emperor Franz Josef I”

    Louis XIV would never consorted in such a spare environment…just saying.

    You should find the chandeliers most empressive!

  3. Love the Imperial Hotel, their FHR breakfast is also pretty spectacular if I recall. Although the room key situation is fairly strange.

  4. Where’s a W when you need one? This is classic, fake old style favored by American tourists staying in American chain hotels. Smart European either does it properly or has moved on. Try the Hotel Zacher if you want to see it done well (although do avoid the endless admonishments to buy their overpriced cake).

  5. This reminded me of a room my wife & I had at the Raphael in Paris. For us, it was a fun “escape” from our typical hotel room experience.
