Hotel Lutetia

Paris, France

Everything you want a luxury hotel to be, and more.

CHECKED IN LAST

Rebecca Alesia

Property overview

There really isn’t anything else out there quite like Lutetia. The hotel itself is over 100-years old but has been restored in the most unique fashion possible. You can stand in the grand marble lobby and gaze in awe at the original frescoes dating back to 1910, and then turn a corner only to walk into a whimsical library-style brasserie with the most breathtaking stained-glass ceiling.

The combination of restoring the hotel’s history combined with every modern luxury you could desire has resulted in an enchanting experience throughout the common spaces and guest rooms. The combination and contrast of colors as you move through the hotel is exquisite. Not to mention the service, as one would expect in a hotel of this caliber, was above and beyond attentive.

Rooms + Suites

All rooms are technologically savvy, featuring LCD touchscreen controls for the lights, temperature and window coverings.

My recommendation is to consider the junior suite, as they are completely spacious and elegant. You’ll even have two massive double closets! If you do opt for the entry-level rooms, though, you won’t be disappointed. These too are chic, featuring whimsical touches like hand-blown Murano glass sconces designed in a celestial fashion.

The beds are massive and swoon-worthy, with yummy crisp sheets and welcoming down comforters. The bathrooms are exquisitely appointed, featuring Hermès amenities (did I mention that Hermès is right next door to this property? Non? OUI!) and marble that is so creamy it looks like ice cream.
Wellness

The pool — tranquil and dramatically lit by natural skylights — is accessed through the spa.

The pool — tranquil and dramatically lit by natural skylights — is accessed through the spa. For travelers with with children, the facility is available to families at two time periods daily. The gym is ultra modern, outfitted with ample equipment. Personal training and fitness classes are offered daily.

The spa is extremely luxurious. The facility affiliates itself with three renowned brands: Carita, Cellcosmet & Cellmen and Aromatherapy Associates. Designed in soothing taupes and beiges, it houses six treatment rooms allowing for both single and couple options. The space also offers guest a sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi.
Restaurants

With several restaurants, guests have plenty to choose from during their stay.

With several restaurants, guests have plenty to choose from during their stay. Le Saint Germain was a top contender for me. This expansive library-style room features the hotel’s crown jewel, a custom stained-glass roof by artist Fabrice Hyber. For those looking for even more upscale dining, Brasserie Lutetia is helmed by legendary three Michelin-star chef Gérald Passedat.
Bar

Here you can enjoy live music played nightly and a mixology wall that nearly reaches the ceiling.

As a jazz bar tribute to Josephine Baker — a famous patron and passionate artist, Bar Joséphine is a cool spot that combines its classic features with a fun vibe. Here you can enjoy live music played nightly and a mixology wall that nearly reaches the ceiling. It was packed and buzzing on our Friday night stay!

Agent Tips

  • Take note of the eclectic contrast of original art deco features combined with modern touches. Surrounding the hotel are outstanding shops, from Hermès to local bookshops and award-winning chocolatiers.
  • The one true architectural change made to the structure of the hotel was the addition of a beautiful courtyard behind the Le Saint Germain tearoom. This spot is sunny and private, a lovely spot to enjoy an afternoon coffee or aperitif.
