We love: Hotel Des Grands Boulevards

Following the success of Grand Pigalle in Paris and Henrietta Hotel in London, the Experimental Group introduces its third seductively elegant offering.

About Hotel Des Grands Boulevards

Set back from the bustling streets of Paris’ lively 2nd arrondissement, you’ll find the Hotel des Grands Boulevards in an impressive French Revolution era building.

Inside, designer Dorothée Meilichzon has struck a fine balance between the pomp of the grand siècle, with red marble and decorative canopy beds, and a more pastoral aesthetic of lime-washed walls, worn linens and rustic furniture, all inspired by Marie Antoinette’s farm. With further highlights including its Franco-Italian cuisine and a hidden courtyard, this is a great base from which to explore Parisian life.
