Paris hotelier Jérôme Chevalier has created a family of lovely hotels- including the Pavillon de la Reine, the celebrity hideaway off the Place des Vosges in the Marais, and Le Pavillon des Lettres, the literary-themed hotel that’s a stone’s throw from the Élysée Palace in the eighth arrondissement. Now the collection has become a triumvirate, after the recent acquisition of the Hotel du Petit Moulin.
Situated on the corner of Rue du Poitou and Rue de Saintonge in the hipper-than-thou upper Marais, the boutique hotel opened in 2005 with 17 guest rooms designed with whimsy and flair by Christian Lacroix. The façade of the historic-listed 17th century building is especially noteworthy, since it used to be a bakery and the beautiful “boulangerie” sign has been preserved. It's a discreet address- and each of the colorful rooms has its own individual personality (some walls have sketches from Lacroix's own sketch pads). Small pets are allowed, and in-room massages can be arranged.
