GARDEN // 19TH CENTURY // INSPIRING // CALM
Does the name Marcel Proust mean anything to you? In this room, we feel like we're in the author's very own writing room! This ground-floor suite runs along the immense private garden of the hotel. You instantly feel like you've gone back in time, sheltered from the frenzy of the city. And the exceptionally friendly hotel staff makes you wonder if you're actually in Paris... ;-)
The suite itself is absolutely delicious. A tad old-fashioned, the decor is romantic, very 19th century, with walls in shades of gray and brown, deep brown crown molding, and curtains that make you thirsty for a latte.
Separated from the living room by heavy curtains, the bedroom features copper and wood accents, and dark tapestries. Wait... What's that on the bedside table? Oh! An iPad! We're definitely in the 21st century.
What we loved the most was the desk in the living room. Leather and wood, it looks like the desks our grandfathers had, and makes you feel more like writing a novel than text messages. The huge windows look out on the garden. Daydreams and inspiration guaranteed.
Ultra-modern bathroom with shower and bathtub.
A ritzy RESIDENTIAL neighborhood! Silver spoon-fed youth and WELL-MANNERED grandparents walk their Labradors in the tree-lined side streets of this residential area where tourists rarely venture.
The local: Tod's shoes on the feet, a silk Hermès scarf around the neck.
