Jean-François Legaret, mayor of Paris’ first arrondissement joined senior executives from Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group and Societe Fonciere Lyonnaise today to officiate at the opening of Mandarin Oriental, Paris.
Design details: We hear the original Art Deco façade of the hotel is matched by the swank interiors. The hotel’s 138 rooms are some of the largest in Paris, with plenty of light, art deco details and oriental touches.
The architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte supervised the renovation of the building, facade and patio. Sybille de Margerie developed the interior design and decoration of the rooms, spa and public spaces, while Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku worked on the bar and restaurants. The hotel's indoor garden was created by Wilmotte & Associés, in association with the landscape artists François Neveux and Bernard Rouyer.
Foodies, take note! Mandarin Oriental, Paris has two restaurants and a bar along with a cake shop, all led by Executive Chef and Culinary Director Thierry Marx: Sur Mesure is a haute-couture restaurant for 40, Camélia serves light French cuisine and we hear that the "vibrant" Bar 8 is a place to "see and be seen." The hotel has a holistic Spa at Mandarin Oriental complete with a 151-foot swimming pool, a fitness center and a range of event spaces.
To celebrate the opening, Mandarin Oriental, Paris is offering an enticing opening package, "J’aime Paris." Available from July 17 to August 28, each reservation includes a cash credit of $431 for any room reservation, or $718 for suite reservations. These credits may be redeemed on rooms or at the spa, bar or one of the restaurants. A minimum length of stay may be required on certain dates.
