The iconic Hôtel du Louvre has officially reopened its doors in Paris, following a full renovation.
As part of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt, a collection of distinct hotels with their own narrative, Hôtel du Louvre sits in the heart of the city’s Palais-Royal district, surrounded by the Musée du Louvre, the Comédie-Française, the Palais Garnier and Palais Royal. The hotel’s 164 rooms and suites have been fully redesigned to reflect the original Parisian style, with high ceilings, elegant moldings, marble floors reminiscent of the Opéra Garnier and chic Parisian furniture.
Colourful and evocative illustrations by Emmanuel Pierre lead guests from the rooms to the lobby and dining areas, which have been reimagined by renowned architect, George Wong.
“Once again this magnificent, historic building will open its doors to guests looking for a sanctuary of calm within the bustling city,” said general manager, Hôtel du Louvre, Fanny Guibouret. “We invite independently minded guests to experience the joy of slowing down and embracing Paris. Whether that means joining a local game of pétanque in the Palais Royal, lunch on the grass in the Tuileries Gardens or leisurely walks through the streets and alleyways of the capital, we invite guests to join us for an unconventional stay.”
Hôtel du Louvre has also welcomed to its offering the Brasserie du Louvre – the first Parisian ‘Brasserie Bocuse’ serving traditional French cuisine, with recipes developed by Paul Bocuse, known as the ‘Chef of the Century’. The restaurant is part of Bocuse’s Restaurants et Brasseries de Lyon, which have been embodying Lyon’s gastronomy and French expertise for the past twenty-five years.
Meanwhile, L’Officine du Louvre Bar, which is located under the hotel’s glass roof, serves unique herbal-based cocktails celebrating Napoleon III’s love of botany.
Eight meeting rooms, which are designed like studios, are available at the property, each decorated with a different theme around the famous personalities who shaped the hotel’s rich history. They range in size from 19 to 137m2 and are all equipped with the latest technology.
Located on the mezzanine level of the hotel, guests can take advantage of the 24-hour fitness centre with a range of the latest technology and equipment suitable for a complete workout. The fitness centre has also undergone renovation as part of the hotel’s refurbishment.
Hotel du Louvre is the fifth property in Europe to open as part of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt. It joins Parisi Udvar Budapest Hotel, Hotel Martinez Cannes, Hotel Sofia Barcelona and Nish Palas in Istanbul.
