Style and Character
Situated in a grandiose 18th-century property, Le Meurice boasts extravagant decor and Versailles-style grandeur. In 2011, Le Meurice was the first hotel to be awarded an official “Palace” Status. To keep its opulent Louis XVI style, the hotel has undergone a number of renovations including the last one in 2007 made by the acclaimed interior designer Phillipe Stark. The designer has completed a major refurbishment of the hotel’s restaurant, the bar, and the public areas, and has added a number of decorative elements to some of the old interiors.
With its crystal chandeliers, marble floors, Doric columns, and rare pieces of furniture, it doesn’t come as a surprise that the hotel has often been referred to as “Hotel des Rois”(Hotel of Kings).
The Bar 228 is decorated with fresco panels by Alexandre Claude Louis Lavalley and the ceiling at Restaurant Dali was hand-painted by artist Ara Starck.
Each of the hotel’s 160 rooms is luxuriously decorated to evoke authentic Parisian living.
The lavish decor in the Pompadour suite was inspired by Marquise de Pompadour herself and offers an expansive view of central Paris. The room features a king-size bed, rich trimmings by Maison Declercq, and chandeliers by Lucien Gau designed to echo Louis XVI decor.
The Belle Etoile Penthouse Suite located on the seventh floor features hand-crafted details, Garnier Thiebaut linens, a whirlpool bathtub, and a vast terrace with an unparalleled 360-degree view of Paris.
With unique artworks, damask wallpapers, floor-to-ceiling windows, decadent furnishings, and rare pieces of furniture, the rooms at the hotel are an epitome of elegance. All rooms are equipped with spacious Italian marble bathrooms, minibars, air-conditioning, and flat TV screens. The bathrooms are equipped with luxury toiletries by Maison Francis Kurkdjian.
