On the banks of the Seine, less than half an hour by metro from the hotel, the Musée d’Orsay showcases mainly French art produced between 1848 and 1914. Housed in a cavernous former railway station, the museum displays a huge collection of Impressionist works, along with sculpture, photography, architectural drawing and decorative arts. After admiring paintings by such celebrated artists as Cézanne, Monet, Renoir and Van Gogh, take your pick from a choice of lunch spots. In the restaurant, you can sit down for a traditional French meal on brightly coloured chairs beneath chandeliers and a soaring ceiling. Or head to the Café Campana, designed by the Brazilian Campana brothers, for Parisian brasserie fare. Café de l’Ours serves light lunches and snacks. Save time by buying your museum tickets in advance online using the hotel’s free WiFi. All visitors enjoy free entry on the first Sunday of each month.
