Headed to Paris in the near future? From refreshed designer suites to brand-new properties, we've rounded up some exciting new luxury hotel options to check out during your stay.
The Sofitel Paris Le Faubourg recently debuted interior renovations by designer Dider Gomez, timed to coincide with Paris Fashion Week. At the inaugural event we got a peek at Prestige Suite No. 302, which showcases the redesign’s bold artwork and touches that draw on the neighborhood’s couture history.
If you’re in the mood for something new, consider La Reserve Paris, which just opened this past January. With just 26 suites (with individual wine cellars), 14 rooms and 10 apartments, all by designer Jacques Garcia, the property follows in the footsteps of Michel Reybier’s other properties in Geneva and Ramatuelle.
Another January debut to try could be the Hilton Paris Opera, which opened following a $50 million restoration of the former Concorde Paris Opera. We hear the room to go for is the 900 square-foot Maria Callas Suite, which combines a living room with high ceilings with a master bedroom with a king bed, and a second bedroom with twin beds. Both bedrooms have private bathrooms.
The Hotel Plaza Athénée recently debuted an expansion that added three buildings to the property, bringing it to a total of 154 rooms and 54 suites. A particular standout among the new suites, which were designed by Marie- José Pommereau, is the suite directly above the avenue’s Harry Winston boutique, which has embroidered pillows by Lesage and Calacatta marble bathrooms with excellent lighting.
Finally, the new Peninsula Paris recently passed its six-month anniversary. The hotel, which officially opened in August 2014, is steps away from the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Elysée – perfect for those wishing to stay in the heart of the action.
