The spirit of Marilyn Monroe has been kept alive in the 15th arrondissement, not far from the Beaugrenelle shopping complex. A true shrine to the star, the hotel catapults you into a world of fifties sass with Vincent Bastié, architect and renowned hotel decorator at the helm. Think pastel yellow accents, diffused lamps, vintage furniture and black and white checkerboard floors – not to mention, Marilyn in video and photo form.
The 46 rooms and suites have multiple Marily references, from the wall portraits to round beds in her signature polkadot print, with scattered petals of her favourite flowers. For those who want a little less Marilyn, opt for a Deluxe room, where the only reference to the star is the fact it is number 5 – after her Chanel perfume.
It’s a retro journey pimped with all the mod cons – there’s a spa guests can use at any time, as well as an original bar where you can make your own cocktails. The Platine offers a Hollywood escape lodged somewhere between the past and the present, in excellent company.
