Discerning travelers know to expect impeccable service at any Mandarin Oriental. It’s comforting to know that the Mandarin Oriental Paris treats its four-legged guests in the same wonderful manner as it does those customers on two legs. The Jet Set Pets checked into the luxe property on rue Saint Honoré, one of Paris’ most fashionable streets, and found an array of pet amenities sure to please the most fickle feline or pampered pooch. A chilled glass of champagne for the humans and a chilled bowl of water for Lucy awaited us in the lobby of the Mandarin Oriental Paris, which opened June 28, 2011.
Surrounded by the leading names in fashion and minutes from Place Vendôme and the Tuileries Gardens, the Mandarin Oriental Paris boasts 138 rooms and suites that are among the most spacious in Paris. All the rooms feature a panoramic window, and some have a terrace overlooking the indoor garden.
In our Mandarin Oriental Paris Suite:
- A welcome letter from the Mandarin Oriental Paris mascot Archie Lewoof, a border terrier whose pet parent Philippe Leboeuf is the hotel’s GM
- A linen mat with Lucy’s name embroidered in pink
- A pink charm with Lucy’s name engraved on one side and the Mandarin Oriental Paris’ signature butterfly on the other
- A bottle of Evian water
- Two stainless steel feeding dishes adorned in butterflies
- A comfy satin dog bed with the word “Happy Dog”
The Mandarin Oriental Paris not only has an in-room dining menu for dogs and cats but welcomes well-behaved pets in its restaurant Camélia, an all-day French restaurant revisited by Thierry Marx. (Sur Mesure par Thierry Marx, the formal dining restaurant in the Mandarin Oriental Paris, is a gourmet Michelin-starred restaurant.)
Being that the Mandarin Oriental Paris is located in one of The Jet Set Pets’ Top 10 Pet-Friendly Destinations, there are a slew of pet-friendly activities for dogs within in walking distance and upscale boutiques with fabulous finds for felines and canines.
