When the Mandarin Oriental Paris opened its doors on fashionable Rue Saint-Honoré earlier this year, we fell head over heels in love. Now the hotel has gotten even better with the debut of 39 opulent suites-- visualized by celebrated French designed Sybille de Margerie in a haute couture style. The seven duplex suites-- perched on the hotel’s seventh and eighth floors-- have private terraces overlooking the City of Light. These suites include the Royale Mandarin Suite, Royale Orientale Suite (fusing East and West in the décor), Cabochons Suite (filled with fashion photography), Broderies de Cristal Suite (silks, pearls, and sequins, oh my!), Couture Suites and Atelier Suites (resembling Parisian pieds-a-terre’s perched on the hotel’s top floor).
Particularly noteworthy: The two-level Royale Mandarin Suite, encompassing a cool 3,767 square feet. Like the decoration of all the guest rooms, only the noblest materials were used. Think silk, gilded oak, marble, and a sprawling bathroom with gold cabochons imprinted in the floor. The headboard was embroidered by Maison Lesage to capture Man Ray’s "Neck"- a 650-hour task. Soak in the bath tub overlooking the Eiffel Tower, then entertain guests over dinner on your private terrace with views on the Garnier Opera (pictured).
Test drive one of these luxe new accommodations and get a slew of added benefits with the “Suite Temptations” package. Stay three nights and you’ll get the fourth for free. Also included: daily American breakfast for two, a spa credit of $134, a special VIP welcome, and complimentary internet access. For further information, visit the hotel's website.
