Posh Art Deco mansion with sophisticated styling and its very own jazz nights
This hotel was built in 1927 as a private mansion for the poet Theodore de Banville, a friend of the poets Baudelaire and Victor Hugo. Since 1967 it has been in the singer Marianne Day’s family and was ultimately re-imagined as a 38-room boutique hotel with the help of her husband, architect Laurent Moreau. While it’s far from the madding tourist crowds, Paris veterans may appreciate the off-the-beaten track locale, while jazz lovers will relish the intimate Thursday night performances by Day and her musical contemporaries.
In the Area
The hotel is situated near the gentrifying northeastern part of the 17th arrondissement, known as Batignolles, where ethnic restaurants and colorful produce markets abound. A 15-minute walk takes guests to the Arc de Triomphe and the hustle and bustle of the Champs Elysees, while the more central parts of the district are known for serene boulevards lined with just-so Haussmann-era private mansions. While there are few tourist-magnets here, the petite, impeccably groomed Parc Monceau is a must-see.
