Hotel Vernet | Paris, France | Right in Etoile, off Avenue Champs-Elysees. Hôtel Vernet, Hotel de luxe 5, is the brand new property (inaugurated March 2014) by Besse Signature Group. LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION plus understated luxury, with plenty of intimacy and sophistication. Feeling like your own apartment, right in the heart of Paris. My Deluxe Suite was super cozy, comfortable and true to the classic Parisian style and soul, with cool touches of chic modernity by architect François Champsaur revealing a symphony of colors and materials enhancing the feeling of luxury and wellbeing.
My Suite has a well thought layout and include a large dressing. Bathrooms with noble finishes such as sinks and walls in Carrere marble and wood, brass taps and mosaic floors create an atmosphere of opulence and French chic. Such a shame I was only there for one night, since I would have love to have Hôtel Vernet as my pied-à-terre in Paris, for a few days. Watch the video of my suite.
The Hôtel Vernet is a sumptuous Parisian building in the legendary and true « Haussmann » style. An institution which has seen centuries of change, situated in just about the most perfect location, between the golden Triangle of Paris and the Place de l’Etoile on the Champs-Elysées. The 5-star Hotel Vernet celebrates its 100th birthday by entering the age of modernity.
Entirely renovated and refurbished in 2014 by its new owners, the French family owned hotel group « Bessé Signature », the Hotel Vernet revives the tradition of the great Parisian establishments of the chic 8th arrondissement of Paris by offering itself the distinction of acontemporary interior created by Interior designer François Champsaur, who pays tribute toParisian elegance and French craftsmanship.
Under its monumental stained glass dome designed by the famed Gustave Eiffel, the restaurant of the Hotel Vernet is devoted to the pleasures of the senses. The kitchen is visibly accessible through a large window, creating discrete and uninterrupted activity. The eye is drawn around the room, attracted by the many original works of art from contemporary artists, as if wondering in a true Parisian collectors’ residence. Same room, where you will enjoy breakfast every morning.
At Le V Restaurant, only simplicity and the precision of taste are to be found. The dishes, designed by Executive Chef Richard Robe highlight the origin and quality of the chosen ingredients, selected to the highest standards. Reinventing in order to rediscover the best of traditional French and international cuisine, such is the mission of the V, the restaurant of the Vernet. My choices for my evening were: Les Nems de Torteaux (French Crab spring rolls with mesclun salad and soja vinaigrette) EUR 28. Le Risotto Carnaroli (Calamari, squid ink and fresh Parmesan cheese) EUR 25. Tarte citron Laduree EUR 14.
Light and shimmering, the bar of the Hotel Vernet offers an atmosphere, which is intimate, and as light as the sparkle of a champagne glass.the materials are noble, such as the virgin white Carrera marble counter, which with it’s rounded edges seems to be floating. The ceiling is covered with a fresco, painted by internationally celebrated Jean-Michel Aberola, which seems to be reflecting the dynamics of the carpets designed by the same artist.
The spirit of the place is tangible, surprise and seduces the Parisian and International clientele with the utmost sophistication, whether it be for a drink, a meal, or during one of the many parties animated by their resident DJ.
Hôtel Vernet, without a doubt my new Parisian obsession. Complimentary WiFi. No fitness center, but their Les Clefs d’Or Concierges, can assist you booking one in the neighborhood. Looking forward to my next visit or dinner, next time with more time to unwind and enjoy. Active hotel member of LGTNetwork. Next visit to Paris, give it a try, it won’t disappoint you.
