After Shiseido, the products used in the massages and aesthetic treatments that Hôtel Barrière Le Fouquet's Paris proposes are currently from the French laboratory Kos Paris, a luxurious and exquisite brand of cosmetics based on natural products. Like the spa, the present owners of space are anything but modest when they describe it. "Our hotel represents absolute luxury," they say.
The contrast of tones and aesthetic chains that marks the decoration
In spite of being a modern hotel, its aesthetic features tend to be classic. Both in the common spaces as well as in the bedrooms and suites, the chosen colors favor the darker tones, complemented by rich and delicate fabrics, precious skins, top quality woods and distinctive and original decorative pieces. Many of the houses have over-sized dressing rooms and bathrooms.
The garden in the inner courtyard of Hôtel Barrière Le Fouquet's Paris is another of its secrets and there are even those who have a habit of going to the two restaurants and three bars of the hotel to admire it. The fine cuisine of Fouquet's Paris, a typical brasserie with ambitions to the extent of the hotel's sumptuousness, contrasts with the contemporary cuisine of Le Joy, also decorated by Jacques Garcia.
The festive atmosphere of the L'Escadrille bar and Le Marta Paris, which hides behind a discreet bookshelf, contrasts with the peace and quiet that many guests look for in Le Joy's bar. It is there that, before retiring in the rooms or suites, many like to go for a glass of wine or a cocktail. As Paris is a city with much to do, it is not uncommon for those who lie down early to rest.
In the comfortable, elegant, modern and spacious rooms, equipped with the latest technology, the straight lines and the contemporary forms, the whites, the browns and the beige with touches of gold predominate. The bathrooms are marble and, among the many pampering they offer and the luxuries they provide, there is even a perfume, an exclusive fragrance, named after the hotel.
The price to pay for luxury and refinement
Some of the more luxurious rooms, located on the higher floors, allow you to see the roofs of the buildings that surround the Champs Elysees. From the presidential suite, an apartment with 210 square meters, available from € 7,900 per night, you can see the Eiffel Tower. The 19 author rooms that are being operated to open doors at the end of 2018 will have views of George V. Avenue.
The most accessible rooms, such as the one we stayed in, can be booked from € 632 per night. From € 664, you can purchase special packages that include access to the spa, three days of detox treatments, roses and champagne. The famous Arc de Triomphe and the renowned shops of the avenue Montaigne are two of the nearest tourist attractions. George V Metro Station is just 70 meters away.
In addition to the Hôtel Barrière Le Fouquet's Paris, the Barrière group, which owns over 30 casinos and 18 luxury hotels and resorts, also owns the Hôtel Le Majestic and the Hôtel Le Gray d'Albion in Cannes, Hôtel Barrière Lille, the Hôtel Les Neiges in Courchevel, Hôtel Barrière L'Hermitage in La Baule, Castel Marie-Louise and Hôtel Le Barrière Le Royal, Hôtel Le Normandy and L'Hôtel du Golf in Deauville, Normandy.
