By the top of the Champs-Elysées, just off the Arc de Triomphe and the Golden Triangle is the Château des Fleurs, a new luxury boutique hotel set in a 1910 building and imagined by the Barcelona-based design firm Quintana Partners as a tribute to the Paris balls of the 19th century. Olivier Bertrand, who, along with his sisters owns two Relais & Châteaux properties, Relais Christine and Saint James Paris, has extended their collection of Parisian hotels with the opening of Château des Fleurs. By 2025, the group will open three more new hotels in the capital.
The boutique hotel offers 37 rooms, a bar-restaurant, a gym and spa. At the entrance to the Château des Fleurs is the light-filled lobby; next to the Reception is a square bar in veined marble and dark wood with brass shelving, surrounded by precious items and more rustic references, such as velvet bench seats and contrasting red floor tiles, and Murano glass chandeliers accompanied by a mixture of furnishings unearthed in antique stores. For more privacy, guests can head for the lounge, which can be privatized. It has fringed armchairs, bookshelves with columns of wooden balls, Persian carpets, and a fireplace adorned with brass. F&B options include Restaurant by OMA, helmed by Korean chef Ji-Hye Park, and a bar.
In the hallways on all five floors, the wooden doors to the 37 rooms "reject the rigor of straight lines" in favor of curves evoking the style of Antoni Gaudí. Inside the rooms, the atmosphere is cozy with gentle lines, rounded bedheads, bedside tables and ceiling reliefs. The rooms offer wardrobes, Murano glass lamps, a tailor-made lounger near the window, and a hidden minibar.
Throughout the property, Quintana Partners have added a few references to the French capital: Cable pattern carpeting, red floor tiles in the bathrooms, Parisian shutters and flowery window boxes for all the rooms. As a bonus, an equally delightful Parisian experience includes an excellent night’s sleep beneath sloping attic roofs in one of the split-level Junior Suites on the fifth floor.
The gym is located in the basement and has Technogym equipment and a punching bag. On the same floor, the spa at Le Château des Fleurs has partnered with Omnisens to offer a range of personalized treatments.
