Hotel Le Meurice – Paris

Belonging to the Dorchester Collection, with the two-star , it is one of the most exclusive hotels in the French capital.

 

There is much to tell (and to see) about this iconic Parisian hotel. In fact, over two hundred years of history are the basis of the legendary aura that surrounds it.

Everything stems from the idea of a “postman” from Calais, Charles-Augustine Meurice, who already at the end of the seventeenth century decided to open an inn to accommodate (with modern criteria) the increasingly numerous travelers across the English Channel.

After a few years, having moved to Paris, he had already created “Le Meurice” on Rue Saint Honoré, which in 1838 reached its definitive location on the Rue de Rivoli, beside the Jardins de Le Tuileries.

Gorgeous furnishings, impeccable and avant-garde services for the time, the central position and “names” of the personalities who began to frequent it, soon contributed to creating its fame, which since then and still, rivals the Ritz for the record of best Paris hotel.

As always in these cases, the number of famous guests belonging to the royal houses, to the world of finance, politics, art and entertainment is incalculable. We will mention only, by way of example, Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dalì.

In over two centuries of life Le Meurice has undergone several extensive renovations, to keep pace with the changing needs imposed by changing times. The last one was entrusted to one of our “old acquaintances”, Philippe Starck, in 2007 and 2016.

But still this year, new “adaptations” and remakes are on the agenda. The “Pompadour Suite” is a paradigmatic (and lavish) example.

We would really like to talk for hours about the history and magic of this Hotel, but obviously this is not the context, given that we want to inform our readers, but we do not claim to be encyclopedic.

We then summarize the main features and leave to the images the task of making them dream.
