The boutique hotel is an iconic example of Haussmannian architecture featuring 54 rooms including 11 suites. The property was designed by architect Richard Martinet, a virtuoso in luxury hotels and palaces, in collaboration with the Atelier Paluel Marmont.
Interiors offer bespoke furniture and carpets, herringbone flooring, French doors and balconies complemented by the latest technology including in-room tablets and mobile Wi-Fi hotspots, plus elegant bathrooms combining quality, functionality and design with Carita amenities.
