1. Top luxury category

2. 25 th wedding anniversary

3. A great bar in the hotel

4. Best location for walks and sightseeing

5. Great restaurant in the hotel

6. Top shelf service.

Thoughts?

Sarastro's suggestions are great.

One that meets all your criteria and has the best location for walks and sightseeing is Le Meurice.

Based on your criteria, I think the Ritz on Place Vendome is your best option: top of the line; the very best bar in Paris (bar Hemingway with the legendary Colin Field as head barman: http://www.forbes.com/2001/05/30/ritzbar.html / http://tmagazine.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/03/04/the-insider-colin-peter-field/); well, as for location, you ARE on Place Vendome with its dozens of high end jewellers.

Restaurant may be ever so slightly below that of other Parisian palaces (we are still in the "top notch" category though), but you are anyway about 500m from the said Palaces, or other 3 star Michelin restaurants (most such Parisian restaurants are in the same arrondissement, the 8th one).

Be aware though that the hotel will close for major overhaul starting early July, and for 27 months at least. In case your planned trip is after this date, the newly opened Shangri La brings raving reviews on most of your criteria, though its location is not as top notch

My idea of a luxury hotel that meets your criteria is the Plaza Althenee:

Your wife may know it as the hotel from Sex in the City, when Carrie goes to Paris. Famed chef, Alain Ducasse, is the Executive Chef for the hotel, supervising all their restaurant menus.

George V or Le Meurice.

I'm not mentioning Crillon (although I just spent my second NYE there) simply because Les Ambassadeurs cannot compete with Le Meurice's main restaurant.

Ritz will be closing for a 2 year renovation, so check before you book.
