And now after four years and extensive renovations under the direction Jean-Michel Wilmotte, infrastructure upgrades and the requisite elements of a 5-star palace. the Lutetia is back and ready to resume its rightful place as a destination for artists, writers, actors, directors and us.
The lobby seating area, breakfast dining room, restaurant with companion atrium dining reflect the art nouveau history but sparkle. And coming in time for the holiday season the Brasserie Lutetia will open under the suoervision of 3-star chef Gerald Passedat whose Marseilles Relais Chateaux hotel and restaurant attracts gastronomes from all over the world.
And as befits a luxury hotel of this caliber there is a full spa and pool.
There is much to see and appreciate so I suggest you visit the hotel and stop for un verre or tea at the Bar Josephine (Baker.) La Baker was a regular and Thursday-Saturday a jazz trio is likely to play one of her signature songs.
To paraphrase Greta Garbo in Ninotchka, there are fewer but better rooms.
Elegance, chic, heritage; everything that makes Paris special is reflected in our guest rooms and suites. Experience exceptional contemporary luxury in one of the city’s most historic hotels, where tradition blends seamlessly with modern technology and comforts.
