This late 20's style, very centrally located hotel on boulevard Haussmann, is a first class, four star historic hotel featuring a truly Parisian atmosphere, with crystal chandeliers, paintings and antiques. The property has a renowned gourmet restaurant and piano cocktail bar. The Hotel Ambassador stands nearly on top of the site of the “Hotel Tetebout” (in today's Ninth Arrondissement) where Thomas Jefferson, his daughter, Martha, and his slave, James Hemings, spent most of their first year in Paris.

It was at the Hotel Ambassador that Charles Lindbergh was feted after he made the first solo flight across the Atlantic from a rainy airstrip on Long Island to Paris in 1927.

Location: 

Surrounded by Baron Haussmann's celebrated boulevards, the Hotel Ambassador is in a quiet oasis for business and leisure. A pharmacy, post office, newsstand, and many interesting small shops and restaurants of all sorts are within a few minutes walk of the hotel. 


Attractions within one mile/3km: Champs Elysee, Notre Dame, Opera Garnier, Place Vendome, and the well known traditional grands magasins (department stores) Galeries Lafayette and Au Printemps, and the Stock Exchange. The Louvre Museum is a 15-20 minutes walk south and the charming Montmartre area is a 10 minute walk north (the view of Montmartre's monumental Sacré Coeur from the corner of Rue Laffitte and Boulevard Haussmann, just east of the hotel, is breathtaking). 


There are also a number of early 19th century Passages/Galeries (arcades), including the extensive Passage des Panoramas, near the hotel. As the Eyewitness Travel Guide to Paris says: "At the time of their construction, the Galeries represented a new traffic free area for commerce, workshops and apartments. They fell into disuse but were dramatically revamped in the 1970s and now house an eclectic mixture of small shops selling anything from designer jewelry to rare books. They have high, vaulted roofs of iron and glass."
