The Marignan is a discreet hideout, tucked away from the throngs of tourists on the nearby Champs-Elysées. You might pass by without even noticing it, but behind the enormous black double doors, lies a masterpiece of a Parisian hotel. As you might expect for such a prestigious establishment, the building is steeped in history. It began as a town house, then became an embassy but it wasn’t until the 1920s that it was turned into a luxury hotel.
The building was completely redesigned by Pierre Yovanovitch – the architect’s first hotel project and is refreshing with trendy seventies-inspired, but not flashy decor. It’s a much-needed injection of youth into the hotel, with a resolute contemporary graphic style.
Our second floor suite’s doors are over four metres high, giving a good idea of the majesty of the living room and bedrooms. Even in this grandiose space, the attention to every subtle detail is key: lighting, numerous technological accessories, walls dotted with artworks, books by Godard lying around, a view onto the street, Guerlain products and a cloud-like king size bed. You’ll feel so at home that leaving is guaranteed to be a struggle.
Besides the impeccable breakfast and the much-hyped restaurant-bar, the most remarkable feature is the cinema. Like the Royal Monceau, the Marignan has its very own cinema room which is available for private hire, proving that the Marignan is an establishment unlike any other. Full of life and vibrancy, expect this to blow all your previous hotel experiences out of the water.
