Rosewood has been appointed to manage the legendary Hôtel de Crillon in Paris, the hotel is currently closed while it undergoes a complete restoration lasting two years and will reopen in 2015.
 
“Hôtel de Crillon is more than just one of the world’s most majestic hotels.  It is a landmark that personifies the poise, elegance and spirit of Paris,” says Radha Arora, president of Rosewood.  “We strongly believe that the hotel aligns perfectly with Rosewood’s core ethos of A Sense of Place® and we look forward to drawing upon our expertise and experience to help write the next chapter in the history of this iconic property.” 

“It was essential for us to find an operator who was able to grasp the uniqueness of this iconic property,” say Ramzi Wakim and Laurent Dusonchet, managing partners of Avangard Advisory, the owner’s representatives. “We were seduced by Rosewood’s tailor-made approach, its A Sense of Place® philosophy and its understanding of true luxury. We are thrilled to have them as partners and we are confident that the Hôtel de Crillon will set new standards among the palace hotels.”
 
Originally built in 1758, Hôtel de Crillon enjoys an unrivalled position overlooking Place de la Concorde, the most enviable address in Paris. Its walls are alive with history and the building has stood through the reign of two French Kings, the French Revolution, the rise and fall of the Napoleonic Empire and the birth of the League of Nations.   The current restoration will add a contemporary polish to the hotel while remaining respectful of its traditions and faithful to its character. The architect is Richard Martinet and three Paris-based decorators, Chahan Minassian, Cyril Vergniol and Tristan Auer, overseen by Lebanese artistic director, Aline d’Amman, will be creating the new interiors.

This announcement comes shortly after the launch of Rosewood London.  Housed in a grand Edwardian Belle Époque building, the hotel opened in October and received great acclaim for its sensitive transformation, seamless service and rich interiors.  Rosewood has embarked upon an ambitious global expansion with a particular focus on Europe and Asia. In 2014, the brand will open hotels in Beijing, Riyadh and Baha Mar with further openings already announced including Phuket, Bali and Bangkok.
