FAUCHON L’Hotel Paris has naturally found its home in one of the most beautiful Haussmanian buildings of its kind in the city. Under the direction of Paris architect, Richard Martinet, the original moldings, doors, balconies, and other design elements were preserved. To customize the space and incorporate Paris aesthetics with a modern touch, the Atelier Paluel Marmont, incorporated the iconic FAUCHON pink and black palette along with a style mixing contemporary and classicism to represent Parisian charm. In the guest rooms and suites, the design alternates powder-pink velvet accessories with straight curves and rock variations, black herringbone floors, and carefully restored Parisian shutters. Everywhere, a selection of artwork represents the characteristic cheekiness of Maison FAUCHON. Small touches incorporate the charm of FAUCHON: gold threads run inside the shower screens, carpets have been custom designed with the graphic fonts of the house, and light fixtures have been sourced to provide a mood that combines functional intelligence with ambiance to recreate an entirely different ambiance as day evolves into evening. A variety of unique pieces were commissioned for the hotel including a dual-purpose TV/secretary unit where the TV seems to disappear. It also functions as a small desk — a modern and exclusive version of the former secretary. Additionally a variety of contemporary French artists were commissioned to design pieces to customize various public spaces throughout the hotel.


GUEST ROOMS AND SUITES
Just like the many districts of Paris, the accommodations at the FAUCHON L’Hotel Paris each have their own personality. With a total of 54 guest rooms and suites — 37 rooms and 17 suites — they have varying character traits including valuts, balconies, bow windows, etc., yet all have a common luxury: Paris city views. Some rooms feature Boulevard Malesherbes views, others offer a window onto the Place de la Madeleine, and the duplex suites enable guests to see the Eiffel Tower. Designed to replicate typical Parisian apartments, some suites have their own lounge (which adapts to accommodate a chef) and enables a Chef FAUCHON to come into the suite and demonstrate their gastronomic talents by preparing a special meal en suite.


THE GOURMET BAR FAUCHON
L’Hotel Paris has disrupted the hospitality industry by reimagining the typical in-room “mini bar.” The epitome of the hotel’s commitment to creating a centerpiece of gastronomy, the Gourmet Bar is a custom pink armoire designed by Sacha Lakic and produced by the House Roche-Bobois. As attractive as it is functional, this stunning piece of furniture (also available for guest purchase worldwide) enables incomparable gratification. Within the many doors and drawers, guests can enjoy unique moments of pure decadence as they seek and savor favorite FAUCHON delicacies. As our special gift, FAUCHON offers complimentary FAUCHON creations upon arrival to suit your taste preferences. We will customize the contents according to your preference: salty, sweet, or tasting (a combination of both). The Gourmet Bar includes a “fresh product” cabinet for pastry, chocolates, and foie gras, as well as a preview of other FAUCHON specialties all kept at the ideal temperature. The “drinks” cabinet is the perfect spot to hold wine, spirits, champagne, water, juices, and soft drinks. As well as an area to enclose the hot water kettle and Nespresso coffee machine for FAUCHON tea, and coffee. The FAUCHON items in the Gourmet Bar are complimentary and guests are invited to take any unused items home to share with friends and family or as a reminder of their stay. Behind a small partition there are soft drinks, beer, and wine, which are available for a fee.


THE GRAND CAFÉ FAUCHON
With a unique combination of glamor, culinary innovation, and continuous service at the corner of boulevard Malesherbes and Place de la Madeleine, The Grand Café FAUCHON is already taking its place as an exceptional address in the 8th Arrondissement. With a total of 60 seats, it offers guests unique experiences inside and out. Inside, it is the personification of Parisian chic with a separate entrance, huge windows letting in natural light, long tables, and a bar which is the centerpiece of creativity. Here, the mixologist explores different tastes and combinations as well as an ever-changing collection of seasonal delights. The Grand Café FAUCHON combines the traditional classics of the Parisian brasserie — including some “family-style” dishes with a contemporary twist on the weekend as well as the freedom to taste “plates.” The philosohy is more or less sophisticated, sometimes revealing the raw product in all its nobility or on the contrary, cooked according to the inspiration and the season — in the desired order or at the same time. Without constraint of quality of the products, since the price is “on the plate” whatever the dish chosen. Anxious to favor the product whatever the time and the tasting method, The Grand Café FAUCHON has selected the best hams from here and there including Breton, Sardinian, Corsican, and others. Other specialties include Salmon, especially French, smoked on the spot. The vibrant outside terrace is a spot to sit in the shadow of the Madeleine Church and watch the world go by. After a day of business or sightseeing, we invite guests to come celebrate “Glam’Hours,“ with us — what we like to call Gourmet Happy Hour. During the Glam’Hours, the city’s finest wines are paired with sophisticated delicacies to create a Gourmet Happy Hour experience as only we can delight. Enjoy truly fabulous wines, FAUCHON tea-based cocktails, and small plates of delicacies.
