The restoration will be a creation of a new courtyard, spa, pool and a rooftop villa with private garden and pool, alongside a remodelling of the existing rooms and suites.
While the remodelling takes place, a limited number of guests are being given the opportunity to stay in a still-accessible part of the hotel as occupants of a “pop-up” suite developed in collaboration with Champagne brand Dom Pérignon.
Suite 321 is available to book from March 14 to May 30, 2016, appealing to those champagne connoisseurs. After a welcome cocktail at the hotel’s Bar Américain guests can retreat to their rooms to enjoy a bottle of Dom Pérignon Vintage 2006 and a five-course dinner inspired by the menu at the hotel’s lauded Le Louis XV-Alain Ducasse restaurant, paired with more champagnes.
After dinner, guests can also explore the hotel’s Dom Pérignon wine cellar in private.
