Mandarin Oriental Paris
Refined elegance and inherent serenity - the heart of Mandarin Oriental — debuts in Paris with a contemporary context in historic surroundings.
In 2011, Mandarin Oriental established a new home in Paris and continues to distinguish itself as a distinctive, luxury hotel brand. In a city whose architectural heritage is recognized and loved around the world, the Mandarin Oriental Paris is a modern, new building. While it is noticeably contemporary but does not offend or draw attention away from its historic neighbors. To step inside this hotel, however, is to experience both the daring and the creative side of modern French design, with just the right suggestion of Mandarin Oriental’s Eastern origins.
French architect Jean Michel Wilmotte successfully met the objective of privacy and a connection between interior and exterior. The hotel lobby features dramatic high ceilings and full-height window walls that overlook a large, open garden. The lively and varied interiors, in an array of contemporary styles, were created by designers SM Design and Patrick Joulin.
The hotel offers 99 rooms and 39 suites — a high ratio of suites given the hotel’s total number of rooms. This is representative of Mandarin’s exclusive brand of luxury. Mandarin in known for its hotel design, amenities, guest services and personal attention. The hotel offers views of the Eiffel Tower from many of the guest rooms in varying room categories.
There are two restaurants, “Sur Mesure par Thierry Marx” and “Camilia”, both overseen by Chef Thierry Marx. In his career Marx has earned 2 Michelin Stars, and Sur Mesure marks his restaurant debut in Paris. Sur Mesure’s visual setting is museum-like contemporary and all white, which, of course, highlights the presentation of the cuisine. Chef Marx offers his adaptation of traditional French cuisine in casual, all-day dining at Camilia. Bar 8, designed by Patrick Joulin, provides a dramatic and striking bar setting, a clear aesthetic departure from other areas of the hotel.
And no hotel should be without its own pastry shop. The Mandarin notes that its street address, Rue St. Honore, is named after the patron saint of bakers and pastry chefs, and thus they too should have a patisserie. We love the justification and couldn’t agree more!
Meeting rooms at the Mandarin are contemporary, light-filled, and many overlook the interior court garden. In the warmer seasons, private dining is offered in Le Table le Jardin. The Garden Table is a strikingly beautiful design, comprised of a circular white banquet set in a tubular, iron-framed, trellis of extraordinary height.
The Spa at Mandarin Oriental is designed for guest privacy, with both individual and couples suites. The setting is natural and understated, reflecting the Eastern philosophy of well being.
