In the city synonymous with haute couture, the Sofitel Paris Le Faubourg has unveiled a collection of 21 Didier Gomez-designed suites, which match his already iconic reputation.
Top Pick: The Couture Apartment has our vote as the hotel’s most toutable digs. The 1,075-square-foot suite, on the top floor, is accented by ivory tones, satins and marble.
Nice Touch: The bedroom is outfitted with gilded panels, covered with glass cabochons portraying the sun and moon. We also love the Hammam shower and balneotherapy bathtub in the bathroom. For clients hosting dinner parties, the dining room seats 10. Art Appeal: Certain walls are covered with fashion photos by Cathleen Naundorf.
The other new suites, while not as large, are equally luxurious, done up in the style of salons in couture houses (think 18th-century opulence combined with today’s comforts). They include 17 430-square-foot Collection Suites and four Opera Suites at 550 square feet each. All suites, which form a third of the hotel’s 147 guest rooms, have iPod docks and 42-inch flat-screen TVs. Contact Laurence Seguin (firstname.lastname@example.org) with queries.
