Hôtel Le Meurice Continual re-enchantment

Opened in 1835, the pioneering Parisian luxury hotel Le Meurice remains ahead of the field thanks to its art of reconciling classicism with modernity. That is what has attracted the most famous figures throughout its history, from Dalí to Jay-Z.

With its recently renovated 29 suites and rooms including the royal suite La Belle Etoile, Le Meurice sweeps us away in its perpetual motion, enhanced by a designer duo brought in by the establishment’s interior designer, Charles Jouffre. The Lally & Berger studio had already made a strong impression two years before with their work on the Pompadour suite, both a showcase and a jewel. Now, they have repeated the achievement in these private areas, which present a view of the City of Light and the landscaped treasures of the Tuileries Gardens below. There is an echo of the royal spirit that has reigned over the area for nearly two centuries, revitalized by modern touches. Luxurious but refined, classical but connected, the rooms present a combination of custom-made furniture produced by the greatest workshops and manufactories, and unique artworks and textiles created by distinguished fabric and soft furnishing artisans. On the 7th floor, the Belle Etoile suite is more than 620 sq. m. of infinite luxury, with its home cinema, dining room for ten, impressive marble bathroom and terrace of nearly 300 sq. m. planted by Pierre-Alexandre Risser.

The 8th edition of the Meurice Prize for contemporary art

The refurbishment works followed those done three years before in the lobby, the Bar 228 and the two hotel restaurants. One of the most acclaimed restaurants in Paris is the 2 Michelin-star le Meurice Alain Ducasse. In the majesty of the restaurant room overlooking les Tuileries gardens, Chef Jocelyn Herland offers a unique experience of a modern and elegant cooking where prime ingredients are magnified by the chef’s skill. In a creative and luxurious setting imagined by Philippe Starck, Le Dalí is the other gourmet option to taste combining classic and inventive dishes.

Those two restaurants offer the unique privilege to enjoy the fabulous desserts of one of Paris’ masters of pastries, Cédric Grolet. Elected World’s Best Pastry Chef 2018 by the Club des Grandes Tables du Monde, the man is an artist. The generous flavors of his trompe-l’œil fruit are equaled only by the precision of their forms and shades. They are not only presented in Le Meurice when Cédric Grolet holds his Tea Time, but also in La Pâtisserie du Meurice par Cédric Grolet, open to all, where delicious aromas of kouglof and madeleine flatter the nose while the eye is drawn by the appetizing realism of the five Signature du Jour creations nestling under glass bells. Always ahead of the trend, Le Meurice created a first-class spa more than ten years ago, with steam baths decorated in Bisazza mosaic, a mixed sauna, a hi-tech gym and so on. The Spa Valmont is now a reference in its field, not only for the quality of its product range by Valmont, an eminent Swiss brand founded in 1905, but also for the variety of its personalized care services provided by expert hands.

The unique establishment embodies the very definition of the French luxury hotel. It is time to take a new look at Le Meurice!
