The Royal Monceau Revisited

After undergoing important renovation work since 2007, the hotel Royal Monceau in Paris has reopened its doors on October 18th. To recreate the luxury hotel, Philippe Starck, Alexandre Allard and one of the world's leading luxury hotel firms, Raffles Hotels and Resorts, have been embarked together on a great human adventure, to transform the Royal Monceau. Although it has been renovated from top to bottom, the hotel has kept its historic past, naming rooms for prestigious guests who once stayed there, such as Ray Charles, Andre Malraux, Josephine Baker among others. Today, the new Royal Monceau is an hotel reinvented, redesigned, a destination where art and culture are omnipresent. Artworks by emerging French and international artists provide a strong presence of contemporary feel in the hotel. In-house collection of photographs are exhibited throughout the various rooms and suites.
And not to forget Pierre Herme, the king of macaroons, who is in charge of concocting all the pastries and sweets for the new Royal Monceau.
