Overlooking the Seine, in the heart of the French capital, Cheval Blanc Paris will be opening its doors on September 7, 2021. The contemporary boutique hotel will have 72 accommodations— 26 rooms and 46 suites—to go along with four restaurants. It marks the fifth hotel in LVMH’s ultra-luxe Cheval Blanc portfolio, following Courchevel, the Maldives, St. Barth’s and St. Tropez.

The former La Samaritaine department store, an Art Deco landmark on the Seine, has been remodeled by architect Edouard François, while the listed building’s décor was reimagined by architect Peter Marino in the style of a Parisian residence. Despite the low room count, there will be 11 room categories. Guests of all rooms can expect such features as marble bathrooms, home to a separate tub and dressing area, a reading nook alongside bay windows, and Parisian Chic Poudré and Parisian Chic Boisé-scented amenities (Cheval Blanc Paris’ signature fragrances created by François Demachy, Maison Dior’s perfumer).

Good to know: Select suites offer views of such Paris landmarks as the Louvre, Notre-Dame and the Eiffel Tower. Other rooms offer balconies or terraces, multiple bedrooms, private projection rooms and more. The Quintessence Suite—the top digs—has a reception room and dining space, as well as a swimming pool, hammam, sauna, treatment room and fitness suite.
