i'm with you UA
i LOVE foie gras! though it is possible to be served too much in one entree. it is just so rich, that too much is just--ugh.
the hotel is actually barely 100 years old. weird though, since it seems and feels so steeped in history, which it is. but 100 years in french history is a speck on the timeline.
i have been fortunate to stay there three times, twice with parents who footed the bill in the coco chanel suite, and again in the elton john suite (kind of plain in comparison to the coco chanel), the third time on my own for one night only in a normal run of the mill room with a friend i had gone to school with. i'd go back in a second had i the time and if i didnt see a problem with paying thousands to stay in a room each night i mean when i travel i use the room very little, mostly just to sleep. i cannot see much justification for that honestly.
