With 172 bedrooms set over five floors, a modern French brasserie, bar, and two courtyards to escape the capital’s hordes, The Hoxton Paris has flung open its doors, introducing the world to the decadently-stylish brand’s largest hotel to date.
Comprising of three buildings, and listed as a ‘monument historique’, the 18th century hotel particulier was originally built by architect Nicolas d’Orbay for Etienne Rivié; undergoing many changes before standing empty for the past ten years. Collaborating with design studio Humbert & Poyet; Soho House; and Ennismore Creative Studio, The Hoxton have turned out a splendid space that revels in a grandeur of contemporary hipness, where heritage and the weight of Parisian majesty collide with the sort of sublime modernity their name has become synonymous with.
Located on Rue du Sentier in the city’s 2nd arrondissement — within easy reach of Jardin des Tuileries; Le Louvre; and the cobbled streets of Le Marais — the hotel’s bedrooms (Shoebox, Cosy, Roomy and Biggy) feature locally-designed furniture; bespoke chevron timber floors; bold feature walls and plenty of sex appeal. The Hoxton’s usual, much-loved perks have found their way to the French capital, too.
So much more than just a place to rest your head for the night, The Hoxton Paris’s public spaces are the real spots you’ll want to spend your time getting to grips with: Jacques’ Bar, an intimate space with killer wallpaper and a Moroccan-inspired drinks list; and Rivié, serving all-day French-inspired dishes alongside some Hoxton comfort food classics, join a design-minded lobby and The Hox’s renowned cultural programming in forming too many reasons for you to avoid those fancy chequered sheets upstairs.
