Chic & Romantic

The Walt opened late 2003 following several months of work, giving the vibrant, traditional Ecole Militaire quarter the modern four star hotel it was missing.

Despite being at the head of an important financial group in the United States, when the Hall family developed this hotel, and the Marquis, its older brother on the other side of the Champ du Mars, they were not looking for a pure financial investment but rather to indulge themselves and their guests. This is borne out by the materials used and the custom-made furniture which combine to create a décor which is both contemporary and timeless, as the interior designer, Paul Sartres, intended.

With the exception of huge headboards depicting works of art from the Louvre, the rooms are decorated with discretion and warmth: elegant wood furniture, sober colours and parquet flooring. The works were painted by artists from the Van Rijn studio to add personality to the rooms, with emphasis on reproducing the general spirit of the paintings rather than the finer details. The paintings, where love is seldom absent, the animal prints of the bedspreads and the voiles in the public areas add a touch of romance and mystery to the neat, rather sober décor.

The public areas open up onto a pleasant patio, the team is young and the service relaxed. In short, the Walt is a lovely, friendly place to stay in one of the nicest quarters of Paris close to the Eiffel Tower.

The clientele

The clientele attracted by the hotel is fairly young, international and conservatively chic, mainly business travellers during the week and leisure travellers at weekends. Lots of couples choose the Walt as a honeymoon destination so they can gaze out over the top level of the Eiffel Tower or quite simply because it is close to this famous monument. The Walt is a pleasant, welcoming hotel, ideal for those looking for some character, but nothing over the top, in one of the nicest areas of Paris.
