Sitting elegantly next to Rue de la Paix, which is of course the most expensive property on the Paris monopoly board, The Westminster has a rich history dating back to the days of the Ancien Régime before the French Revolution. The building was once a convent and still contains in its cellars the graves of the Mother Superiors of its past incarnation. Then, in the 19th century, it became an inn frequented by the Duke of Westminster. It has been a deluxe hotel since 1905 and the rich collection of antique clocks and furnishings that adorn it today give it an air of old world Parisian chic.
