ZURICH—Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has launched its first hotel in Paris in the city’s Neuilly district.
Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts took over the hotel on December 19. From summer 2013 work will begin on the remodelling of the hotel’s 281 rooms and 19 suites as part of a multi-million-euro refurbishment project. The renovation will be carried out on a floor-by-floor basis to ensure in-house guests are never disturbed during their stays.
Each room will celebrate Parisian style with custom designed chaise longues, soft tone French-made fabrics and unique three-dimensional wall features inspired by traditional moulded wall coverings.
A key feature of the renovation will be the cutting-edge shower room with discrete glass panels allowing natural light to flood through from the bedroom. The glass shows an abstract frosted image depicting a map of Paris. Combined with integrated high-tech work spaces, the new rooms come from a design concept created by London based international company Ara Design.
“The hotel is already a magnet for local residents as a result of the relaxed ambience and modern flavours of the Victor Hugo brasserie as well as the busy 58 Bar & Lounge. With Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts we are looking forward to building on this success,” said Pascal Leprou, general manager of Mövenpick Hotel Paris Neuilly.
The Mövenpick Hotel Paris Neuilly brings the European portfolio of Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts up to 22 properties and a global portfolio of 77 hotels, resorts, and Nile cruisers currently in operation.
