From the street, Monhotel Lounge & Spa appears to be a stately Parisian townhouse, complete with ivy spilling from wrought iron window balconies. Behind the stone façade, though, the mood is decidedly playful. In the lobby you’ll see a bowl of rainbow-colored sweets, poster-size Warholesque prints and a chandelier encased in a red cylindrical shade from Dutch design firm Moooi.
Bed and Bath
Lighthearted design touches can be found throughout the 36 rooms and suites. Each has a print of a Hollywood star (George Clooney goofing around, Marilyn Monroe at her sultry best), Philippe Starck table lamps and Alcantara wall coverings. Executive Rooms, which occupy a privileged position at the corner of the building, feature open-plan slate bathrooms with stand-alone tubs and separate rain showers. Brew yourself a potent café with your Nespresso machine and soak up the view of prestigious Avenue Foch.
When it’s time for an aperitif, hit the bar, where the staff is known to shake up some killer drinks in a candlelit lounge setting with classic films projected on a screen. The spa treatment room is a rarity in a hotel this size. Painted black, its ceiling studded with starlike lights, the spa room is ideal for a couples massage in the dark — as if your stay in Paris weren’t romantic enough already.
