Le Grand Mazarin in Paris, will be the fourth hotel to be added to the Maisons Pariente collection of luxury boutique hotels in France. With interiors by designer Martin Brudnizki, the hotel begins its original and eclectic story in Le Marais, a neighbourhood beloved by Parisians and travellers from around the world…
The latest addition to the Maisons Pariente little black book of addresses is just a stone’s throw from the Hôtel de Ville and the Seine, and expands the collection and offers guests a luxurious and serene setting in the heart of Paris. Le Grand Mazarin is both unexpected and endearing, a place that reflects the values of Maisons Pariente, through an original hotel story with an exceptional location – a location which is part of the canvas of the cultural history of the capital. Le Marais has crossed the centuries to become the epicentre of new trends. A lively and avant-garde district, sparkling with creativity, vibrant by day and by night, the district represents the art of living joyfully. Taking its lead from the location, inspired and elegant, the décor is imagined by the Swedish interior designer Martin Brudnizki. Le Grand Mazarin revisits French classicism with a breath of refined modernity. In the 61 guestrooms, including 11 suites, the design plays with discrepancies in a virtuous way to create a grandiose universe that is both whimsical and deliciously warm.
“I love the concept of the literary salon of yesteryear and this was one of the main sources of inspiration when designing Le Grand Mazarin,” explained Brudnizki.”We wanted the hotel to feel as though it has always been a part of Le Marais’ landscape so we sought inspiration from the great houses of the aristocratic era, where figures from literature, art and music gathered in sumptuous residences, exchanging ideas and thoughts. Our concept of Le Grand Mazarin was to reignite this ambience for the modern day, where guests feel as though they have arrived home and have the freedom to express themselves.”
Everything has been brought together to make Le Grand Mazarin the essential destination for a unique Parisian experience, at any time of day: a delightful restaurant, a surprising bar where each evening is a new experience, an extraordinary swimming pool, and excellent service that is always attentive yet discreet.
“Le Grand Mazarin is a hotel that is above all for Parisians, a place where they can meet. It’s a real bias that you won’t find anywhere else,” said Leslie Kouhana, President, and Kimberley Cohen, Artistic Director and Co-Founder of Maisons Pariente. “It will be the first urban hotel in our collection to embody our DNA, the Maisons Pariente spirit of simple, warm hotel luxury and sincere, generous service. We imagined Le Grand Mazarin as a place to live with multiple influences, a place to meet and share, a showcase of elegance where refinement sublimates the mix of styles and eras with fun.”
The Maisons Pariente portfolio has been making its mark on the boutique hotel landscape in France with an impressive roll out from Crillon le Brave in Provence to more recently Le Coucou in Méribel. Located in extraordinary places, each hotel is designed as an elegant private house and reveals a unique and arty personality, in perfect harmony with its environment. and with Le Grand Mazarin, the spirit of Maisons Pariente is embodied in a modern vision of Parisian luxury.
