Hotel des Grands Boulevard, Paris
Built shortly before the French Revolution and recently brought back to life in true French grandeur, Hotel des Grands Boulevards is ‘The Experimental Group’s’ latest hotel project in Paris. Tucked away in the heart of the 2nd Arrondissement, the hotel marries Romanticism with 18th-century Parisian elegance using avant-garde interiors and a sophisticated palette.
Also responsible for London’s, Henrietta Hotel and Paris’ Hotel Panache – interior designer, Dorothee Meilichzon describes the hotel as “a play with splendour”. Meilichzon creates a refined and contemporary aesthetic for the hotel, cleverly referencing the era of Louis XVI with magnificent canopy beds with textural linen, “bronze sconces with timeworn patina”, provincial furniture and deep red marble features. At the heart of the hotel is a cocktail bar and restaurant orchestrated by chef Giovanni Passerini who has opted to revisit the great classics of French-Italian country cooking in a refined setting.
Hotel des Grands Boulevards is set in the centre of the bourgeois districts – an affluent region neighbouring the Sentier and in close proximity to the Faubourg Montmartre’s Theatres as well as an array of fine dining venues.
The Hotel des Grands Boulevards offers a slice of history with the luxuries of contemporary design. Whether you spend the night or simply dine in the restaurant, the guest experience is spectacular, to say the least, and offers an example of a modern Paris at its finest.
