Hôtel des Grands Voyageurs, the new Parisian lifestyle hotel is located in the Left Bank Quartier of Saint-Placide, has opened its doors. The 138-room hotel, designed by Fabrizio Casiraghi, takes its inspiration from "the Golden Age of Travel" and will offer guests the feeling of entering the private residence of a Parisian art collector. The new hotel offers a chic brasserie restaurant, a clandestine bar, an avant-garde style gym and meeting rooms.
The hotel is filled with a curated selection of art from all over the world, paying homage to the antique dealers’ square in St-Germain-des-Prés. The artwork includes lithographs from Gustav Klimt and Marc Chagall, bespoke mirrors by artist Osanna Visconti di Modrone and bas-relief sculptures by François Gilles.
At the hotel’s heart sits Grands Voyageurs, a vibrant dining experience in the form of a transatlantic brasserie. The menu combines French and American influences with a focus on seafood. Downstairs is Poppy, an intimate underground bar for cocktails to be enjoyed late into the night.
Guest bedrooms range from Classic Rooms to Junior Suites with in-room amenities by Diptyque. Additional spaces include a gym, two meeting rooms and underground private car parking.
The nearby historic streets of Saint-Placide are home to bustling bars and avant-garde gastronomic destinations, all set against the Rive Gauche. Right on the doorstep of the hotel sit the city’s acclaimed shopping destinations, including department store Le Bon Marché, and its culinary companion, La Grande Épicerie.
