From the hotel, the stroll to the Grand Palais is a real treat for the eyes! After taking the Esplanade des Invalides and crossing the Alexandre III Bridge, a protected historical monument, the majestic silhouette of the Grand Palais comes into view with its magnificent metal and glass vaulted-roof, the biggest of its kind in Europe (13,500 m² floor area in the Nave).
It is a Parisian monument on the edge of the Champs-Elysées, separated from the Petit Palais opposite by Avenue Winston-Churchill. Its 77,000 m² regularly host prestigious trade fairs and exhibitions. The greatest painters, including Monet, Picasso, Goya, Delacroix, Rembrandt, Cézanne and Velásquez have all been exhibited in this cultural temple.

Both buildings were built for the Universal Exhibition of 1900 and have been devoted by the Republic to the glory of French art.
