Situated at 247-251 rue Saint-Honoré (1st), The Mandarin Oriental is ideally situated a few steps fromPlace Vendôme, the Tuileries Gardens, the Louvre and the Orsay museum.
Opened in June 2011, this palace has 99 bedrooms and 39 suites some of which have a private terrace. The loveliest is the Royale Mandarin: an elegant 350 m² duplex on the top floor which offers a 360° panoramic view of Paris.
All the spaces fan out around a huge interior green and peaceful patio. The building’s art deco facade was restored by French architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte. Sybille de Margerie decorated the bedrooms and public spaces, and Jouin Design decorated the bars and restaurants.
The restaurants Sur Mesure and Camélia
As well as its so-called "Parisian, chic and modern" decor, the palace boasts two quality restaurants directed by starred chef Thierry Marx: the gastronomic cooking at the Sur Mesure and inventive cooking at the Camélia with its "45 minutes-45 euros" menu. In 2012, the Sur Mesure was awarded two stars in the Michelin Guide.
The Mandarin Oriental has four reception rooms and meeting rooms with a view of the garden. Like all palaces, the establishment has a spa with private spaces including three suites for couples, a steam room with plants, showers with a raindrop effect and body and beauty treatments inspired by traditional Chinese medicine. Body and beauty treatments are open to non-residents.
Finally, a 14-metre-long swimming pool and fully–equipped fitness centre round off the facilities. The hotel is directed by the former managing director of the Crillon, Philippe Lebœuf.
