Proving that exquisite things come in small packages, Paris’s L’Hotel has all of the glamour of a precious gem. Its history is as colorful as its fashion-forward palate, and every detail captures the spirit of Bohemian Paris.
To truly experience the Left Bank, visitors should acquaint themselves with the artistic and philosophical traditions that shaped the neighborhood. There is nowhere better to base your explorations than L’Hotel. The final home of Oscar Wilde might be the quintessential space to understand the paradox of glamour and free-spirited exploration. Both faces of the Left Bank are captured in the hotel’s latest reincarnation under Jacques Garcia.
Each of the 20 rooms at L’Hotel are named to capture the essence of cozy luxury with bold colors, warm lighting and luxe linens. Mignon, meaning delicate, and Bijoux, meaning small gem or trinket, are just that: finely detailed quarters for a romantic getaway or private time. Grand and Chic rooms move into the plush luxury associated with Paris’ luminaries, and the Oscar Wilde Suite and the Apartment harken back to the living space of the enigmatic and singular writer.
The hotel restaurant, Le Restaurant, is honored with a Michelin star. Chef Julien Montbabut creates a menu in keeping with the playfully chic attitude of the hotel. Fresh, modern ingredients and technique pair well with the overtly romantic surrounds of the restaurant. The silk and marble hint at opulence, while still tempered by the pure romance of the picturesque terrace and verdant greenery.
The hotel’s underground hammam pool and steam room are available to guests by appointment to ensure that your experience is exclusive and relaxing. The stone walls and warm waters will usher you into a rare tranquility after a day of bustling streets.
At nearly every point in history, the Left Bank has been a hub of cultural activity, and while there’s no question that Paris itself is the main attraction here, the hotel adds its own contribution to the city. A First Thursday Jazz show in the chic Le Bar will transport you, cocktail in hand, to the days of Oscar Wilde and his contemporaries, the “swinging sixties,” or any of the inspiring eras before or since.Request Information
