Paris: Prince de Galles, a Luxury Collection hotel, re-opens in May
The hotel's signature restaurant will be led by Executive Chef, Stephanie Le Quellec, who is considered one of the most promising talents in the French culinary scene and will create an exquisite gastronomic experience that captures every moment of the day: from breakfast to the bar menu, as well as in-room dining. Simplicity and authenticity will be the defining characteristics of the restaurant's distinctive, seasonal dishes, which will also evoke the signature favours of the south of France.
Designed by Andre Arfvidson, Prince de Galles welcomed its first guests in 1929, during the peak of the Art Deco movement. The restoration of the interiors of Prince de Galles is led by two internationally acclaimed French designers: Pierre-Yves Rochon and Bruno Borrione.
Bruno Borrione, in close collaboration with Le Quellec, will bring his contemporary and distinctive touch to the hotel's signature restaurant and bar to create indelible culinary moments. A show kitchen, with a chef's table next to it, will be the center of attention in the restaurant, as guests dine at minimalist white marble tables. The hotel's magnificent patio, which features extensive Art Deco-style mosaic, will be re-designed to create an environment that will heighten guests' sensorial and culinary voyage.
Great attention to detail characterizes the work of Pierre-Yves Rochon, who is leading the design for the lobby, as well as the hotel's 115 rooms and 44 suites which have been reimagined as private apartments reminiscent of the Art Deco style from the 1930s. The rooms and suites will feature exquisite materials and design accents -such as unique furniture, elegant furnishings in Macassar ebony wood, Saint Laurent marble floors and intricate mosaics artwork- that are created by renowned luxury French 'maisons' and top craftsmen under the leadership of Pierre-Yves Rochon. The hotel's luxurious 1776 square feet penthouse offers the ultimate Parisian romantic getaway, complete with breathtaking panoramic views over the City of Lights from a private terrace.
Situated on Avenue Georges V in the heart of the Golden Triangle, which boasts some of the most beautiful boutiques, and no more than two steps from the Champs-Elysees, the business district and cultural venues, the hotel embodies the grandeur and spirit of the French capital's great tradition of hospitality. Prince de Galles will continue to offer its unique and personal touch, together with authentic experiences, as the destination authority in Paris when it re-opens in May.
