Make the most of your journey in the City of Light by checking in to the historical Hotel Lutetia.
Get ready to be whisked away and charmed in the most romantic city in the world. Behold, Hotel Lutetia in Paris, reminiscent of the city’s style in the first decade of the last century having been built in 1910. Strutting its architecture and design, which at the time was considered quite daring, moving from the art nouveau era to the emerging art deco style, Lutetia is truly a sight to behold. Standing proud in the dynamic Saint-Germain-des-Prés area, Lutetia is an iconic landmark and the only lavish grand hotel on Paris’ Left Bank.
The hotel was initially opened by the advisory board of the department store Le Bon Marché to accommodate their important clients – and this is just a speck of colour from Lutetia’s vibrant history. In no time at all, the hotel became a social hub for the famous and infamous, the artists, philosophers, and the who’s who of the social scene at the time.
Strategically located in the heart of a very popular area, Lutetia makes a perfect home amidst the City of Light. Must-visit destinations are in close vicinity, from opulent boutiques for brands like Hermés, Berluti and Guerlain, to the quintessential Parisian cafés like Brasserie Lipp and Café de Flore.
Before strolling around the city, bask in the exquisite details at Hotel Lutetia and really take in its unmistakeable Parisian finesse. Sheer elegance – a quality embodied in the city itself – is what makes Lutetia. Offering a wide selection of lush and extravagant guestrooms and suites, it’s more than just a home away from home. From the Superior Room and Eiffel Deluxe Room with Balcony, to the Junior Suite with Balcony and Lutetia Suite, the hotel has outstanding accommodation for varied preferences.
While in Paris, however, go big and choose from one of Hotel Lutetia’s Signature Suites with different décor and designs. The Suite Amour and The Joséphine Baker Suite each boast a chic terrace overlooking the iconic Eiffel Tower, while The Saint Germain Penthouse by Coppola and The Eiffel Penthouse offer 360-degree roof terraces.
More than just a hotel, the Lutetia is also a gastronomic paradise, offering haute cuisine and an unrivalled ambience where great memories are made and memorable conversations are held. Lutetia Brasserie is a stellar dining destination, offering Mediterranean delicacies courtesy of the highly respected, three Michelin-star chef Gérald Passedat. Le Saint Germain opens its doors for fine-dining cuisine – crafted by esteemed chef Benjamin Brial – complemented by the hotel’s exclusive extra brut Champagne. For inspired nightcaps, Bar Joséphine and Bar Aristide are sultry after-dinner hangouts with premium concoctions.
After taking in every mesmerising corner of Paris and taking advantage of the delicious, decadent delights the hotel’s restaurants and bars have to offer, the next appropriate stop is Akasha Holistic Wellbeing. A haven where the healing arts take centre stage, Akasha offers beauty treatments, fitness training and healing therapies and is complemented by a state-of-the-art gym, an alluring full-length swimming pool, meticulously designed treatment rooms, and even a secluded hammam area.
