The hotel’s Art Deco swimming pool first opened in 1929 and has a reputation for being perhaps the best pool in Paris. That groundbreaking style continues to be an intrinsic part of the hotel and spa, and amidst the design it also offers a wealth of space, which is unusual for a city hotel.
In addition to the design, the hotel has its place in history as the original home of the famed Clarins skincare brand – trailblazers in the field of plant-based beauty. Founded in 1954, the brand is a fusion of beauty and medicine – plant science and technology – described as ‘aroma-phyto’ body care.
From facials to hot stone treatments and Japanese Hinokibo massages, there are 13 treatment rooms as well as a private suite, dual treatment rooms, a hair salon and beauty area. The service of the spa is very much designed for a city life with style however, so think yoga classes and boxing as well as the array of facilities. Vogue’s advice? Take a good book and relax on a lounger by the poolside.
For those who have the opportunity to stay here, the Sofitel brand that reopened the hotel in 2014 have brought cool, calm and contemporary rooms and suites, and if you just happen to be popping by for the afternoon then cocktails on the roof terrace as the sun sets over Paris makes for the perfect date, catch up spot with friends, or just an ideal place to congratulate yourself on your own exquisite good taste.
