For a complete experience of one of the most stylish and beautiful cities in Europe, where you stay is every bit as important as the restaurants you dine at and the shops you spend your hard-earned at. Paris is widely famed for its many grand hotels, full of palatial splendour that has been built over centuries of extravagant spending by their ruling classes. However, for those who want a somewhat less ostentatious affair, Hotel La Trémoille mixes the perfect location and luxurious rooms with a personal touch and discreet service best provided by boutique hotels.
Hotel La Trémoille is a private hideaway in the heart of Paris that provides a boutique hotel experience with many of the services and facilities found in far larger hotels. Guest can expect a full spa set-up, including a sauna, fitness studio and wide range of beauty treatments. The 19th century Haussman building is also home to 93 guestrooms and suites, and is situated just footsteps from fashionable Avenue Montaigne and the Champs Elysées. This also means that many of Paris’s main attractions are a 20 minute scenic walk away, including The Eiffel Tower, The Louvre and The Arc de Triomphe. Music fans will also appreciate that the hotel was widely recognised during the 1960’s as the hub of the Paris jazz scene and the meeting place for Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong.
The contemporary and elegant interiors compliment the original features including sculpted wrought iron balconies, marble fireplaces, a grand sweeping staircase and an Art Deco lobby. The spacious guestrooms maintain the elegant feel with a use of luxurious textures and shades. We would also recommend ensuring you book one of their many balcony rooms, as they will provide you with your very own romantic view over Paris.
In terms of the dining experience, Le Louis² bar and lounge has an innovative cocktail list, all day dining and live jazz musicians. Like the rest of the hotel, the restaurant provides an intimate and romance inspiring experience, with small alcoves and well spaced table to make diners feel as though they have the room to themselves. The menu comes courtesy of the recently appointed head chef Yann Frohn (previously from Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée), who has put together an exquisite French inspired collection of dishes such as Grilled foie gras with baked apple; Oriental-style shoulder of lamb and Chocolate & caramel pudding.
