I took a tour of this hotel when it first opened about 18 months ago, and really fell in love with the cozy, private townhouse feel to it. The lobby is decorated like a living room with Chinoiserie wallpaper, fluffy chairs and sofas in satiny jewel tone fabrics, and Moroccan tables and screens. There’s a little restaurant and bar just off the lobby, same exotic décor, with room for about 25. I heard they were starting to serve brunch all day long, seven days a week, a rarity in Paris! But I was more in a tea mood so I invited my friend Sylvia, who had seen the hotel on the cover of one of her decorating magazines, for afternoon tea. A pot of Mariages Frères for €7 and a selection of Ladurée pastries €15 in a beautiful setting is always a nice place to keep in mind for these cold and grey February days! Located just off the Champs-Elysées. Check out their reasonable lunch and dinner menus on their website.
