Mandarin Oriental Paris

Sara Fifi Castany

Perfectly located just off Place Vendôme on rue Saint-Honoré, this Parisian luxury hotel does it up in haute-couture style. From the Lesage embroidered headboards to the artful photos of Man Ray, interior designer Sybille de Margerie has designed each suite in the Mandarin Oriental, Paris with opulent French flair. “In this hotel, you won’t find standard things, almost everything is bespoke design,” said de Margerie.

For the hotel group’s first destination in Paris, they brought in Philippe Leboeuf as General Manager, one of luxury hospitality’s best-known expert in France and Europe. “We are flying the flag for the brand in Europe, so we have aimed to create a magical experience for international and local guests, combining the highest standards of service with a warmth and kindness that can sometimes be missing at this level,” said Leboeuf.

To this custom experience add dreamy views of the Eiffel Tower and Montmartre, an interior garden, private dinners on the terrace, a holistic spa, and sensuous oriental brushstrokes throughout the decor. And at the helm of their restaurant Sur Mesure, is one of Paris’s best-known chefs, Thierry Marx, offering gourmands an award-winning dining event. Without a doubt, the Mandarin’s stamp of excellence has created an ideal luxury retreat, perfectly suited for a modern romance in the city of love.
