Hôtel Plaza Athénée on Architectural Digest Online
Talk about suite coverage. Thanks to our outreach with writer Laura Itzkowitz, including images and information, Hôtel Plaza Athénée was the focus of a pretty little feature on Architectural Digest online. Posted March 21, “The Most Requested Suites at the Hôtel Plaza Athénée in Paris” gets right to the point, positioning the historic hotel as the most luxurious destination in Paris, with details of opulent design, exceptional service, great restaurants and recent renovations. The piece highlights Eiffel Suites 361 and 878 as the most requested, with imagery and the come-hither subhead: “It probably comes as no surprise that the most popular rooms have excellent views of the Eiffel Tower.” Not to us! Architectural Digest needs no introduction as a big media score, though we’d love to meet each of the 1,091,480 unique visitors who check out its website every month.
