After 2 years of renovations, one of the most prestigious Parisian hotels – Le Royal Monceau – opened its doors in October. With suites and private apartments, restaurants and bars, a spa by Clarins, a 3D cinema, kids room and a‘Royal Eclaireur‘ boutique, the new Royal Monceau is by now the most trendy hotel in Paris. Designer Philippe Starck completely transformed the place during two years, and re-invented its spirit so as to make Le Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris the first hotel in a new generation of Parisian palaces.
Le Royal Monceau oroginally opened in 1928, immediately becaming the favorite haunt for artists and intellectuals. Parisians and foreigners alike loved the garden, the immense bar, the rooms set aside for bridge, ping pong and billiards—not to mention the hair salon.
