The Squeeznet publishes: The Mandarin Oriental in Paris has opened its doors at 251 rue Saint Honoré; in the heart of this capital, with the Garnier Opera, the Louvre and the Tuileries Gardens all close by. AFP talks of “Invasion” of asian hotels in Paris.
The hotel’s 138 rooms are some of the largest in Paris, providing comfort, space and light. The architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte supervised renovation of the building, facade and patio. Sybille de Margerie imagined the interior design and decoration of the rooms, spa and public spaces, while Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku lent their talent to the bar and restaurants. The hotel’s vast indoor garden of oriental inspiration was created by Wilmotte and Associés, in association with the landscape artists François Neveux and Bernard Rouyer.
Dining facilities include two restaurants, a live cooking counter, a bar, Cake Shop and a Garden that offer a variety of settings and moods.
To celebrate the launch of this luxurious new city hotel, the ‘J’aime Paris’ opening offer is now available for stays between 17 July and 28 August 2011, with rates from EUR 765 a night inclusive of a EUR 300 credit per room and EUR 500 credit per suite that can also be redeemed at the hotel’s spa or restaurants.
Maison Martin Margiela has announced its first foray into the world of Parisian hotel design. Pairing with the Exclusive Hotels Group, the house has designed 7 suites and 10 guest rooms for the new Maison Champs-Elysées Hotel. Among the mix are several junior suites, deluxe suites, and one full-service suite, all to be opened officially on April 1, 2011.
The Parisian fashion house has also designed the ground floor of this 57-room hotel, which will include an haute cuisine restaurant and a lounge bar.
“The Maison is happy to reinterpret another maison for its first hotel project in Paris,” said an anonymous representative of the house, not via fax. “Maison Martin Margiela creates a theatrical environment where reality and trompe-l’œil are mixed together. The result is several sets, with intertwined references giving an atypical ambiance, harmoniously opposing past and present.”
Built in 1866 by the Duchess of Rivoli, Princess of Essling, the Maison Champs-Elysées is located minutes away from the avenue Montaigne and the usual fashion show locations like the Grand Palais, at 8 rue Jean Goujon, in the eigth arrondisement. The launch event will be celebrated in May 2011.
Paris has recently seen a flurry of 5-star hotel openings, which includes the Philippe Starck-designed Royal Monceau Raffles Paris, opened in October, and the forthcoming Shangri-La, slated for an opening on December 17. The new Mandarin Oriental Paris will also open in the summer of 2011. In other words, consider branching out from the Ritz, Meurice, and Crillon during fashion season—or at least negotiating more recession-friendly rates.
Ecco la prima pietra.
