Rosewood Hotels & Resorts has been appointed to manage the Hôtel de Crillon in Paris. The Rosewood portfolio includes both contemporary classics and historic properties such as Rosewood London and The Carlyle, the quintessential New York hotel. Hôtel de Crillon is currently closed while it undergoes a complete restoration lasting two years and will reopen in 2015.
“We strongly believe that the hotel aligns perfectly with Rosewood’s core ethos of A Sense of Place and we look forward to drawing upon our expertise and experience to help write the next chapter in the history of this iconic property,” says Radha Arora, president of Rosewood.
Hôtel de Crillon overlooks Place de la Concorde. The current restoration will add a contemporary polish to the hotel while remaining respectful of its traditions and faithful to its character. The architect is Richard Martinet and three Paris-based decorators, Chahan Minassian, Cyril Vergniol and Tristan Auer, overseen by Lebanese artistic director, Aline d’Amman, will be creating the new interiors.

The announcement comes shortly after the launch of Rosewood London. Housed in a grand Edwardian Belle Époque building, the hotel opened in October and received praise for its transformation, service and interiors. Rosewood has expanded globally with a particular focus on Europe and Asia. In 2014, the brand will open hotels in Beijing, Riyadh and Baha Mar with further openings already announced including Phuket, Bali and Bangkok.
