Glamorous hotels

Romantic and intimate establishments, designed for lovers.

To help lovebirds to say ‘I love you’, some designers have designed hotels that are so romantic that they transform their guests into princes and princesses, during their stay or even for just one night.

To appeal to clients looking for a poetic touch, some designers bring an intimate and romantic touch to a hotel. The architect and decorator Jacques Garcia, for example, stamped his hallmark on the Hôtel Costes, whose Napoléon-III style reflects his love of precious and antique objects. The intimate atmosphere, set off by a few touches of gold, is much appreciated by hotel guests, which include celebrities and members of the jet set.
The Napoléon-III style is also that chosen by Bambi Sloan, responsible for the interior design of the Hôtel Saint-James. Celebrated for her kitsch and offbeat interiors, the Franco-American decorator has in her words devised a ‘crazy chic’ style. This queen of eccentricity diverts the classical codes to mix elegance with extravagance … Finally, at the Hôtel Lumen, the architect Claudio Colucci has chosen to surprise guests by introducing them to new ways of perceiving their environment. Light, notably, is a fundamental element of the decor of the hotel.

Let there be light! Architect, designer and scenographer Claudio Colucci likes to surprise visitors and imagines new ways of perceiving places. He has applied his art to the Hôtel Lumen, where he has made light the focus. Far from being simply functional, it is a core element of the decor, thanks to an omnipresent play of nuances. Marble tiles, reflections of mirrors, the choice of lights, the sparkle of metal and crystal, the contrast of black and white … The name (lumen means ‘light’ in Latin) and reflects the style of the hotel well. Backing on to Saint-Roch church, it offers a wonderful view of Paris and of the Tuileries gardens.
The service reflects the decor of the hotel: refined, discreet and brilliant. The restaurant, run by Philippe Gasmand and Frédérick Grasser Hermé, offers a tasty and creative menu every day.

Platine Hôtel

The term ‘Platine’ is a reference to the hair of one of the most famous Hollywood actresses: Marilyn Monroe. More than a simple tribute, the Platine Hôtel offers its clients a stay in a setting that evokes her personality and the atmosphere of the 1950s.
It is to interior designer Vincent Bastie, who has worked on numerous hotel projects (the Five, the Hôtel des Académies et des Arts, etc.), that we owe this boutique hotel, entirely devoted to the mythical actress. Lit with spotlights, the lounge resembles a cinema studio; on the walls are some of the finest photos of the star and some quotes by her … The 1950s-style furniture takes the guest back to another era, whilst the restaurant has the look of a typical American diner.
Marilyn Monroe accompanies guests right to their bedroom. Like the other rooms in the hotel, their decoration is refined and evocative: wallpaper printed with rolls of film, bedside tables in the formica of the time, glamorous armchairs in bright fabrics, red and black bathroom (the actress’s favourite colours), rose petals sprinkled on the bed …

Situated at the heart of the Left Bank, in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés district, L’Hôtel is one of the most mythical establishments in the capital. For more than two centuries, it has been a favourite meeting place for famous names in literature and theatre. Oscar Wilde died here; Mistinguett was a regular; Sarah Benhardt received her lovers here; Jorge Luis drew his inspiration here …
The French interior designer and decorator Jacques Garcia was responsible for the refurbishment of the hotel. The challenge: bring an air of freshness and modernity, while at the same time conserving its personality. An objective that has been achieved by this designer with a passion for art objects, who has chosen antique furniture and huge wall frescoes for the room of Oscar Wilde; black canvases, velvet armchairs and  lampshades in that of Mata Hari; arts deco mirror and designer furniture in that of Mistinguett. Every room has its own personality.

Hôtel Costes

The Hôtel Costes has the reputation of being highly popular with celebrities and the jet set. But the establishment has other attractions, in particular its design, the work of designer and art collector Jacques Garcia. It is decorated in the Napoléon-III style: hushed atmosphere, ultra chic decor in warm colours, brought out by gold. The bedrooms, with their intimate and luxurious atmosphere, reflect the taste of the designer for vintage and precious objects.
The attentive service is always impeccable. The restaurant is well worth trying: lounge atmosphere with a menu offering a large selection of world cooking.

Hôtel Thoumieux

Although Thoumieux is famous for its brasserie and succulent head of veal, today, it is also a restaurant with a very singular design. The tone is set! The joint-directors recruited talented architect and designer India Mahdavi to decorate the 15 hotel bedrooms, which are colourful and comfortable with handsome printed wallpaper. Imitation leopard-print rugs and furnishings. A confidential address that is getting more and more popular.
