The Luxury Collection has welcomed the grand opening of Hôtel de Berri, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Paris.
Owned by the Dokhan family, Hôtel de Berri offers eclectic, bold and refined designs devoted to the Parisian way of life.
Meticulously styled by designer and artistic director Philippe Renaud, Hôtel de Berri features 75 guestrooms, including 35 suites, as well as Italian restaurant Le Schiap and cocktail bar Le Bizazz.
The hotel’s preserved 3,000 square metre landscaped garden is a precious legacy of the building’s illustrious past.
Situated on Rue de Berri, the hotel sits in one of the most sought-after addresses in Paris, home to aristocrats, royals and prominent leaders in French society since the 19th century.
Hôtel de Berri draws inspiration from the trailblazers of the French Decorative Arts period including painters, designers and stylists from Coco Chanel to Salvador Dalí, with interior designs reflecting the Art de Vivre ethos made famous in the heart of Paris.
Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, the property was a private mansion for luminaries including princess Mathilde and fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli, Hôtel de Berri today aims to tell its storied history through the design of its rooms and public spaces.
“As one of the world’s most desirable destinations, Paris continues to be the global epicentre of art, culture, gastronomy and fashion,” said Anthony Ingham, global brand leader, The Luxury Collection.
“We are thrilled to welcome global explorers to enjoy a truly indigenous Parisian experience.”
Following the demolition of the property’s private residences at 18, 20 and 22 Rue de Berri, including the home once inhabited by fashion designer and 1930’s icon Elsa Schiaparelli, a vast office building designed by architect and city planner Maurice Novarina was constructed on the site.
This unique building reveals an expressive, dream-like Parisian world within.
