Impeccable

New owners, new energy and new decor for the Champs Elysées Plaza, but if eighteen months of renovations have brought an irrefutable breath of modernity to this discreet institution, founded in 1909, its Haussmannian heritage has fortunately not been jeopardized.

Quite the opposite actually, interior designer Christine Gerondeau has adamantly persevered in building connections between solid Haussmannian comfort and more contemporary pleasures.

The result is elegant and chic, and in line with the investments ventured.

The mouldings and wood panelling have been conserved, but repainted in subdued, up to date colours. Similar evolution for the large volumes, enlivened with contemporary art, the severity of the era spiced up with a touch of glamour, or, again, the richness of the materials enhanced with modern technology.

And so as soon as we pass the establishment's entrance, protected by a sumptuous awning, we come across a modest-sized lobby with reception on the left, opening to reveal what looks like a small sitting room, and the library/dining hall placed underneath a beautiful glass canopy. To the right-hand side of the lobby is a bar stretching in a long line all the way to the salon situated in the corner of the building.

The immediate overall effect is one of warmth: wood and carpet in shades of chocolate, offset by tints of rose, fuchsia or lilac. The only downside perhaps, to have hidden the magnificent period mosaics under a carpet whose snug thickness is the only justification.

Numerous other historic details have been left in place and enhanced, however, like the wrought-iron elevator, or the luminous painting of an aristocrat at the hotel's entrance, which evokes the sober and intense style of the American artist J. S. Sargent.

The 35 rooms and suites are all spacious and highly equipped. If they appear serious at first glance, the charm of their decoration is soon obvious: All the furnishings, fabrics and accessories come from the very best houses and together weave a luxurious patchwork.

The bed-heads are swathed in leather, as are the closets. There is much attention to detail, like the Nespresso machines present in every room. But beyond the materials, the colour co-ordinations suggest a patient ardour and give each room a sense of atmosphere. Delightful, the bathrooms in Art Deco style are embellished with every contemporary comfort.

There are three room categories: executive, junior suite and suite. Weighing in at over 30 square metres, these rooms count amongst the most voluminous in Paris.

The establishment also proposes a beautiful gym, below ground level but of an excellent size, and a hammam.

Open since the beginning of 2008, the hotel's restaurant completes an already impressive list of services for a lodging with less than 40 rooms.

On the corner of the rue d'Artois and the rue de Berri, the Champs Elysées Plaza enjoys a tranquil environment just a few paces away from the frenzy of the Champs Elysées.

Close to the financial establishments of the Boulevard Haussmann, the art galleries of Avenue Matignon, and some of the best Epicurean restaurants in Paris, the hotel's location should satisfy every whim and fancy.
