New Details About the Fauchon Hotel, Opening in Paris on September 1

As one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, Paris has no shortage of thrilling hotel options, and 2018 is seeing a bumper crop of new and exciting properties that have tongues wagging. As if the overhaul of two legendary grande dames (the Ritz and the Hôtel de Crillon) wasn’t enough for the Paris hotel market, this year will see an influx of addresses bound to thrill the hotel nerds among us.

One that we’re excited about is the Fauchon Hotel, a first venture into the hospitality business for the famous food emporium that dates to 1886. As we reported in 2015, the brand renowned for its high quality fare (caviar, designer eclairs, foie gras) is developing a hotel next to its current digs on the Place de la Madeleine. The former Baccarat shop at the corner of Boulevard Malesherbes will open as the Fauchon Hotel on September 1, 2018. 

Here’s the latest news. Architect Richard Martinet is overseeing the design of the hotel inside the Haussmannian-style building. A member of Leading Hotels of the World, the Fauchon Hotel Paris will have 54 rooms including 11 suites. Expect a contemporary design, with bespoke furnishings and rugs, sliding doors and balconies, herringbone parquet floors, and exceptional views of the city (including the Eiffel Tower). A nice touch will be the personalized “Gourmet Bars,” which replace in-room mini bars.
