For more than 100 years, this historic Paris gem has been welcoming visitors through its doors. And on 4 January 2019 the Hôtel Grand Powers reopened after a major refurbishment. Baroque Travel has all the details
Reopened to the public on 4 January 2019, the Hôtel Grand Powers, which is a member of the prestigious Leading Hotels of the World, has undergone a complete transformation to celebrate its centenary. The result is spectacular, with modern elements evident, whilst still maintaining an historic character and elegant ambience. Original features such as marble fireplaces, wooden floors and decorative moldings are still evident, but the furniture has been replaced with bespoke pieces and some of the 50 guest rooms, which are spacious with high ceilings, large windows and marble bathrooms, offer magnificent views of the Eiffel Tower from private balconies.
This majestic hotel close to the famous Champs Elysees in Paris’ Golden Triangle has always been known for its personalized, intuitive service. When it opened in the 1920s, the hotel was located alongside famous fashion boutiques and stately residences. Little has changed, and the area remains as picturesque and stylish as ever. The hotel’s interior is different, though, harmoniously blending European design of a bygone era with contemporary pieces.
Hôtel Grand Powers offers every pampering facility for a luxurious Paris getaway, including an excellent brasserie-style restaurant and a state-of-the-art spa that boasts a Jacuzzi and rejuvenating massages on the menu. This peaceful haven also offers steam room and 24-hour gym with the latest Technogym equipment.
The concierge knows exactly where to direct guests for dining in the area, and the hotel is located close to major designer stores such as Chanel, Saint Laurent and Louis Vuitton, making shopping a dream. Guests especially enjoy spending time browsing the latest collections in the boutiques on Avenue Montaigne and Avenue George V. Close by are the medieval streets of the Marais, offering an historic look back at Paris pre-Haussman. And in the hotel itself, the lounge bar offers a selection of cocktails, the perfect pre-dinner drink.
Dining at Hôtel Grand Powers is a stylish affair for light dining options for breakfast, lunch and supper. Here, Chef Maxime Raab and his team create fresh, healthy, sophisticated dishes.
