When The Continental, as it was first called, came into being in the 1870s it formed one part of a golden triangle of Parisian palaces along with the nearby Louvre and Grand hotels. A favourite of Empress Eugénie, The Westin Paris is a symbol of the beauty and glory of the French Second Empire. Housed behind a set of arcades, its architectural style is typical of Baron Hausmann's Paris. Inside, its salons bear testimony to the wonders of nineteenth century French interior designers, with works from the likes of Laugée, Faustin-Besson, Mazerolles and Delaplanche.
