From the birthplace of the brand, Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts has marked a milestone as its first-ever hotel and celebrated flagship in Paris revealed the completion of its multi-million dollar renovation.
Following the hotel’s transformation, the property now boasts reimagined guestrooms, suites and the transformation of the hotel’s public spaces, including the legendary Jazz Club Etoile and brand’s signature lobby concept: Le Méridien Hub. Design was by interior architect Jean-Philippe Nuel.
“With a stronger and more globally diverse portfolio than ever before, Le Méridien has hit its stride with guests and locals as well as owners and developers around the world,” said Brian Povinelli, Global Brand Leader, Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts. “We are delighted to have the crown jewel of our brand shining brightly once more in the City of Light, as Le Méridien returns to its roots with distinctive design and bold Destination Unlocked positioning.”
Located in the 17th arrondissement, anchored by Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Elysées, the hotel is the largest hotel in central Paris. The redesign of the hotel’s rooms was led by French interior architect Jean-Philippe Nuel, while London-based firm Michaelis Boyd restyled all the public areas; both draw inspiration from the brand’s mid-century modern design aesthetic.
