Ritz Hotel closing for renovations

I just read that the Ritz is closing this summer for renovations. I was really looking forward to going there for our 30th anniversary. Now trying to decide between Meurice and Crillon. Any suggestions or recommendations for another hotel?

What about the Plaza, the Shangri La or the Peninsula?

Georges V gets voted best hotel in Europe fairly often and has a similar decor to the Ritz, so you may enjoy that.

Of the 7 palace hotels that the three of us have listed, I have a strong preference for the Crillon. I love its location on the Place de la Concorde, I love the wide open space and all the light pouring in, near the Tuileries gardens and St Honoré shopping. I love the breakfast there, too. I find the Shangri-la to be kind of in the middle of nowhere and the Plaza Athenée too near the Champs for my tastes (the Georges, too, for that matter). The Peninsula is a construction zone right now, so sleeping would be difficult and I hear the builders refuse to serve breakfast on the girders. I find it depressing coming out of the Meurice in to the Rivoli arcades with all the tacky tourist shops.

Ditto to phread's comments about Le Crillon's location. We stayed there several years ago, and it was lovely.

Georges V is the other 'iconic' Paris Hotel. Sadly I have absolutely no idea what it is like!!
