SO/ prides itself on taking travelling in style to a whole new level, and now the glam group has landed in the fashion capital of the world. As part of the newly inaugurated La Félicité Paris, Sully-Morland complex, which has just transformed a former municipal building – the Cité Administrative de Paris – into the capital’s new hospitality hub, the SO/ Paris hotel is housed in a 1966 structure designed by architects Albert Laprade, Pierre-Victoire Fournier and René Fontaine, and features urban arches created by architecture firms David Chipperfield Architects and CALQ.

SO/ Paris features 140 guestrooms and 22 suites, designed by the architectural firm RDAI represented by Denis Montel and Julia Capp. Elegant, warm and vibrant, the guestrooms and suites echo the SO/ spirit of redefining Parisian luxe with style. Filled with life and light, the interior decor is inspired by the origins of the city of Paris itself, a total immersion into contemporary art inspired by our destination’s iconic fashion sense. The très chic Parisian location celebrates a love for the joy of dressing up, where great tailoring meets a backdrop of considered construction and flawless accessorising.

Fashion designer Guillaume Henry, the artistic director of La Maison Patou, has infused his own creative vision into the hotel’s avant-garde design and signature style. The hotel also welcome an iconic guest star: the view. Its panoramic perspective is both romantic and stunning. On the top two floors of the hotel, Bonnie is the hotel’s restaurant, bar, club and smoking room. Design and location combine flawlessly, making it the new place to rendez-vous for memorable Parisian nights. The creative, sensual and sultry allure on show here is the work of interior designer Jordane Arrivetz, founder of the Notoire agency. The interiors are wrapped in masterful works from Studio Other Spaces’ ‘The Seeing City’ by Olafur Eliasson and Sebastian Behmann, which like a kaleidoscope of sumptuous mirrors, reflects all of Paris’ beauty.

Leaving no element of luxury unturned, SO/ Paris offers guests the ultimate interlude for a Parisian pause at the Maison CODAGE Spa. On its very Zen-en-Seine programme are an array of healing face and body treatments. The spa features all the essentials for beauty, youth-boosting and fitness treatments as well as access to the Ô Zenhit sports club and its 20-meter long pool.
