Cheval Blanc Paris: A New Bar for Luxury Hotels is Set

“Cheval Blanc Paris raises the bar for luxury hotels in Paris”

Opened in September 2022 in a desirable setting along the Seine River in Paris, the Cheval Blanc Hotel is a new temple of luxury in the City of Light. Completing the project was not an easy task for the owners, the LVMH group. But after years of negotiations with local authorities,  this perfect cocoon of luxury is now open to travelers.

 

Views of the Seine River are just one thing to love about Cheval Blanc Paris

Location! Location! Location!

A five-minute walk away from the Louvre Museum, and within the iconic department store La Samaritaine. A 19th-century temple of commerce, where the bourgeoisie could buy everything from clothes to toys, the Belle Époque beauty with its wrought-iron balconies around a soaring, glass-ceilinged atrium is one more piece of Paris eye candy you’ll want to savour over and over again.

Cheval Blanc Paris occupies the south side of the compound, in an Art Deco building overlooking the Seine River and Paris’s oldest bridge, the Pont Neuf.

The hotel is just steps from everything you want to see and do in one of the world’s most exciting cities.

Rooms & Suites

Almost all of the 72 rooms, 46 of which are suites, overlook the Seine. The Winter Garden Suite has amazing views from Notre-Dame Cathedral to the Eiffel Tower, as well the river and its famous winter garden suite. This private perch offers views from Notre-Dame Cathedral to the Eiffel Tower, as well as of the river and its famous bouquinistes (or booksellers).

Large windows bring Paris inside

 Large windows fill the rooms with light and frame Parisian panoramas. If you feel it too hard give up the mesmerizing views, guests can ask their private butlers to arrange breakfast, lunch or dinner in the privacy of their rooms and suites.

A corner suite with lounge and dining room

The suites set on the corners of the hotel are exceptionally large according to Parisian standard and they all have a lounge plus a private dining room. On the top of the hotel is the two-story “Quintessence Suite,” a 700-square-metre urban oasis with its own swimming pool,  dining room, a cinema, a private terrace and a secured private access. Swoon!

Pieces of art and contemporary creations are on display all over the hotel. Lithography by Sonia Delauney, an immense blue canvas by Georges Mathieu, a marquetry wall by Lison de Caunes, chandeliers and lamps by Philippe Anthonioz, metal weaving by Sophie Mallebranche. A stay at Cheval Blanc Paris is like sleeping in an art gallery.

On the occasion of the hotel opening, François Demachy the perfume designer of the House of Dior created two different fragrances. Whether woody or powdery, they are the signature room fragrances of Cheval Blanc Paris.
