The Marquis Faubourg Saint-Honoré is the favorite of those enchanted by Paris. The most beautiful city in the world is at your doorstep; explore its refined art of living and remarkable cultural treasures.
WE KNOW THE FRENCH ARE VERY GOOD AT MANY THINGS. Where would the world be without the croissant, the Louvre, the double entendre or Gauloises? Among these skills they are also experts at the art of the small hotels, which are invariably charming, well considered, with an easy-going sense of style. They reassure you on a small scale (you wake up ready for a wonderful day), and they impress you on a grand scale (what a culture that creates such a place!).
“A civilized home in the most civilized city.”
The Marquis Faubourg Saint-Honoré rises to that tradition, and is a perfect addition to a city full of terrific hotels. Situated around the corner from Rue du Faubourg-Saint-Honoré, street of refined shopping (including Gallic classics, Hermès and Goyard), near the place Vendôme, the gardens at the Tuileries, the river Seine, the Louvre. You already know Paris is beautifully laid out, and at the Marquis, it’s right outside your door.
BUT THE MARQUIS HAS PLEASURES WITHIN. An 18th-century mansion that was the former home of marquis de La Fayette, the hotel is intimate, just fifteen suites. Completely designed, with original furniture and textiles, by the Florence-based architect and interior designer Michele Bönan, some rooms are pale grey and restrained, others are deeper and more vivid, all are civilized. A few suites have balconies that are the perfect setting for breakfast or an aperitif.
“It feels like your own discreet townhouse.”
The Marquis is ideal for people who know Paris — it feels like your own discreet townhouse, you come and go with ease. It’s not bustling, full of crowds and noise. It’s elegant and restrained, a civilized home in the most civilized city. You enter the lobby and pass a bar cart that conveys a welcome level of relaxed hospitality. You can enjoy a whisky by the fireplace or the book-lined dining room. Nothing could be more natural.
The Marquis is the perfect setting to reconnect with Paris. To know this city is to love it and never more so than right now.
