Le Royal Monceau-Raffles Paris The arty Palace hotel
With great interior designed by Philippe Starck and an artistic atmosphere, this trendy palace is like no other. It features apartments that are among the most spectacular of Paris and welcome the famous chef Nobu Matsuhisa for a new culinary experience.
Le Royal Monceau-Raffles Paris has been reinvented and redesigned as a glamorous and luxury hotel. In 2010, after two years of colossal renovations and a spectacular transformation by Philippe Starck, the reopening of this legendary hotel (that has been home to the likes of Joseph Kessel, Walt Disney, and more recently Céline Dion), located just steps from the Arc de Triomphe, shook up the rather classic world of Parisian luxury hotels. 149 ultra-posh rooms and suites, art everywhere, an often iconoclastic décor, a renewed sense of creativity and service, a vast festive and culinary offering and even a private movie theater… everything is designed to incite dreams, savoring and living to the full… In 2013, Le Royal Monceau was awarded the official Palace rating as well as one Michelin star for its Italian restaurant Il Carpaccio. A richly deserved award for chefs Laurent André and Roberto Rispoli whose cuisine is so highly appreciated by their French and international clientele. This year the famous chef Nobu Matsuhisa has opened the exclusive restaurant Matsuhisa Paris. In a totally redesigned place with a contemporary and zen spirit, the restaurant offers a new culinary experience fusing savors from Japan to Peruvian cuisine. Since its opening, it is the new place to be for both Parisians and demanding travellers who are looking for an exotic dining in the City of Light. Besides the restaurants, this member of the Raffles Hotels & Resorts group is pervaded by the French spirit and permeated by a culture devoted to core elegance. With a selection of exceptional, almost private suites unprecedented in Paris, Le Royal Monceau resolutely propels its philosophy of fine hotels into the future: luxury is unveiled at its peak. This quest for the ultimate experience is what Le Royal Monceau defends above all. The five-story hôtel particulier located at 41 avenue Hoche houses several suites, including three presidential suites designed as apartments with service that only the most luxurious establishments maintain. The largest of these modular suites boasts a Turkish bath, fitness room with personal trainer and a highly elaborate home cinema, along with all of the services that have built Le Royal Monceau’s reputation, such as direct access to the 1,500 sq.m “My Blend” by Clarins Spa. More than a hotel, it is a residence in the full sense of the word, where everything is devoted to caring for guests who discuss their tastes with the chef to determine what they want lunch or dinner. True luxury lies in total freedom, in the power to fulfill one’s imagination. It’s clear that Le Royal Monceau-Raffles Paris meets this high demand for excellence.
