Le Royal Monceau: historic luxury hotel reopens in Paris

Now managed by the Raffles Group, Le Royal Monceau was originally designed by Louis Duhayon and has since become very popular among artists and celebrities.  Notable guests have included Winston Churchill, Madonna, and Michael Jackson. Other artists and celebrities such as Walt Disney and Coco Chanel have used it as a meeting point since its opening. The hotel was founded by Pierre Bermont and  André Junot who owned many French luxury hotels such as the Miramar in Cannes and the Carlton in Paris.

The newly renovated hotel includes 150 luxury rooms instead of the 260 which now includes 54 suites and 10 prestige apartments.  This remodeling allows for even larger and more luxurious rooms which are not enclosed in one style but composed of many-in-one through distinctive lighting and furnishings.   The suites are designed as private home-away-from-home for worldwide trekkers and following its artistic mood, it comes with a signature “Royal Monceau” acoustic guitar and rooms are filled with works of art, art books, and an artist’s work desk.  There is also WiFi and a mobile sound-recording studio available upon request.  The rooms are redesigned by Phiippe Starck and he makes each room feel like it is lived in, filled with a past life, and a story that the traveler is invited to pursue.

The cuisine is sure to impress with pastry master, Pierre Hermé, who created a new menu of pastries for the 5 restaurants and cafés.   The Spa My Blend by Clarins is a unique blend of luxury and well-being with its contemporary yet timeless elegance that includes a a 26-meter swimming pool, the largest hotel pool in Paris.

If you are intrigued by art and fashion, this is the place to stay.  Rates start from 730 EUR and reservations can be made online.
