Located on one of the most beautiful squares in Paris, the Pavillon de la Reine seems like it's always been there. Staying the night at this luxury hotel is a real treat, like a slice of paradise in the middle of Paris’s beating heart. Expect to feel at ease as soon as you walk in; with an entry situated between two art galleries and a cosy private terrace, the building gives off an alluring charm. It would be easy to while away the hours here, just taking in the surroundings. Or in the ground floor library, sipping fine wine or whiskey while flicking through one of the many antique books.
Adding to the seventeenth century style, the team hired decorator Didier Benderli to give each room its unique character, modernising it without detracting from any of the elegance. The Queen’s Suite (Suite de la Reine) looks like an hotel particulier, complete with two bathrooms – one for the shower and one for the bathtub and its TV, separate toilets, a living room with sofa, desk and coffee table and of course the bedroom, TV and dressing room. Yes, you read that right – there are three televisions. Everything is designed with comfort in mind – the soundproofed silence is even a little unsettling at first. Then there’s the fruit basket, private parking, spa, wifi, minibar, room service, concierge, valet parking, 24-hour reception etc.
This is the idea stay for travelers in search of discretion and luxury in the Marais and with irresistible charm. It would also be an incredible gift for a birthday or wedding – and guarantees to provide an unforgettable night.
