I have been curious about the five-star Parisian hotel La Trémoille since I first heard about it some years ago, and so this time I decided it was time to give it a try. La Trémoille is located not far from the Arc de Triomphe in the 8th arrondissement on the Right Bank, very close to the Champs-Elysées in what is known as the “Golden Triangle.” I will have a lot more to say about this hotel after I stay there, but I wanted to give you a flavor of the place now.
Originally built in 1883, La Trémoille is now a modern hotel that underwent extensive renovations ten years ago. There are 93 elegant rooms and 13 suites decorated in more than 30 color schemes. And here’s something you don’t see everyday: they have installed a private compartment (a “Hatch,” they call it) in each room opening up to the hallway, so that room service can be brought to and from your room without their staff entering your room. Now that’s privacy!
The rooms look great to me: refined, classy, and comfortable. Below are two examples of the wonderful room stylings at this hotel:
Rooms are spacious — a hard to find commodity in Paris — and are also sound-proofed, so I think we’ll sleep well! You will find plush fabrics, Molton Brown bath products, Wi-fi, flat screen TVs, radio DVD players, an iPod base, and the like. Suites offer panoramic city views with private balconies.
Amenities abound here: there is a fitness center, spa, and sauna. The hotel sports a critically reviewed restaurant, Louis 2, where they are going for a Thirties’ feel and look. “Impeccable service & creative cuisine,” wrote one satisfied diner at TripAdvisor. Qype Paris says: “Excellent service, excellent food, and stunning surroundings.”
We are very much looking forward to our stay here next week. Again, I will be blogging in more detail about La Trémoille when I return at the end of this month. For now, check out their specials and see if this great hotel is your kind of place!
