The Left Bank Address For St. Germain des Pres
Once upon a time in Paris there was a hotel. LUTETIA HOTEL takes advantage of its unique place in the history of Left Bank Paris. It was originally built at the height of the Belle Epoque period in the new Art Deco style. The Bon Marche department store and many world class boutiques are just nearby. Restaurants and cafes are within walking distance. The bustle of the city noises disappears as you walk through the central hall and enter the rare world of a historic palace hotel. The sound of a piano from the Bar Josephine located off the lobby is already the place to be and has hosted many glittering personalities during the roaring twenties. On our recent visit, it was clear that the patina of the LEFT Bank Paris ‘glitteratti’ was in full swing.
The Lutetia was remodeled from its original elegant ruins revealing its former glory throughout the hotel. What glory? A hidden hand painted mural and an extraordinary stained glass ceiling just to start.
This past month the hotel was awarded with Palace Hotel status. What makes the hotel a Palace? Could it be the olympic sized pool below the hotel? Chic suites that overlook the Paris skyline? Ultra relaxing spa services designed to transform you? A host of artists and craftsmen re-imagined the original French Art Deco style evocative of both the past and the present and the results are glorious. As you enter this hotel the hush of quiet elegance overtakes you and the journey begins.
