Five-star Sofitel within earshot of the city’s elegant opera house
French interior designer Jacques Grange is responsible for the look of these rooms, which combine a classical elegance with all the comfort of modern amenities. The foyer is impressive, hung with large crystal chandeliers and equestrian sculptures in homage to the Jockey Club, founded here in the 19th century. The restaurant and bar offer ambient and cozy spaces on deep, comfortable sofas. Meanwhile, murals in the hotel corridors celebrate the luminaries who trod these floors in times past: the Russian impresario Serge Diaghilev, dancer Josephine Baker and the Lumière brothers, to name a few.
Bed and Bath
With 213 rooms and 13 suites ranging from superior to luxury and prestige, there is a large array of comfort on offer. Rooms are carpeted and quiet, in graceful tones of beige, cream, brown and apricot. The cherry on the cake is the Sofitel MyBed, which offers a dreamy night’s sleep with duck down mattress toppers and duvets. Bathrooms are standardized in gray marble and white tile, and all offer bath and shower facilities with lavish Hermès accessories.
You don’t need to go far to eat well. The light and spacious in-house restaurant, appropriately named Le Lumière in homage to the Lumière brothers (who screened their first film here), is in the inventive hands of Michelin-starred chef Sebastien Crison. The 1 T. Rue Scribe tearoom offers such delicacies as house-smoked salmon and foie gras, or you could go for some honey from the hotel’s own rooftop hives. And when you need to work off the gourmet indulgences, the hotel has a fitness center and a spa, complete with Jacuzzi, hammam and massage rooms.
In the Area
Even if you’re not a fan, the proximity of Paris’s prestigious 19th-century Opéra Garnier means a visit is almost obligatory; check out the famous ceiling decorated by Marc Chagall. This area is running over with chic boutiques; you’re a stone’s throw from Paris’s most famous department store, the Galeries Lafayette, and a few minutes' walk from the wall-to-wall designer boutiques on the Rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré. The Palais Royal, on the Rue Saint Honoré, houses a historic theater as well as an elegant park. But if you really want greenery at the heart of this city, head over to the Jardins des Tuileries for a walk among sculptures by such artists as Rodin, Henry Moore and Jean Dubuffet.
