There’s a new general manager at the helm of La Réserve Paris, the boutique palace hotel that opened inside a Haussmann-style mansion in 2015. Romain Meiran brings to the job more than 25 years of experience in the luxury hospitality industry. Prior to the appointment, he was working on the pre-opening of Cheval Blanc Paris (slated for next year) after working as the general manager of Cheval Blanc Courchevel for five years. He also oversaw the opening of the Royal Mansour in Marrekech. He knows the Paris hotel scene well, with previous roles at a number of the city’s palace hotels, including Hôtel Le Meurice, Hôtel de Crillon, Hôtel Plaza Athénée and Ritz Paris.
That’s not the only news; La Réserve Paris is rolling out the red carpet for guests to Paris this season. The talk of the town is the Leonardo da Vinci exhibition at the Louvre, and the hotel has devised a package with two VIP fast-track tickets along with da Vinci-inspired cocktails at Le Bar. What’s more, there will be an exclusive dinner on November 19 celebrating the 30th anniversary of IM Pei’s iconic Pyramide du Louvre. Chef Alain Ducasse will be preparing the meal underneath the famous pyramid. The hotel can arrange a couture gown and tux along with a chauffeured car and private tour of the exhibition.
Looking for an over-the-top Christmas Eve celebration?
