Hôtel de Crillon, a Rosewood Hotel has reopened its doors today following a comprehensive four-year renovation.
The historic Paris property first opened in 1909, in an 18th-century mansion on Place de la Concorde. It was taken over by Rosewood Hotels and Resorts in 2013.
Architect Richard Martinet led the restoration of the façade and first-floor reception rooms, while a team of Paris-based interior designers have worked to “respect [the property’s] history while simultaneously injecting a modern attitude and a touch of Parisian irreverence”. Karl Lagerfeld has designed two suites.
The number of guestrooms has been reduced from 147 to 124 to create more space. They include 36 suites and ten signature suites. Starting from 32 sqm, they have been decorated in residential style.

Food and drink venues include 28-seat gastronomic restaurant L’Ecrin; Brasserie d’Aumont, which has indoor and outdoor courtyard seating; Jardin d’Hiver, for tea and pastries; and Les Ambassadeurs bar, which offers nightly live music. La Cave holds the hotel’s fine wine collection and can be used for food-and-wine pairing dinners on request.

Event spaces include Salon Marie-Antoinette, Salon des Batailles and Salon des Aigles, which are all listed heritage landmarks. In combination, they can host 220 guests for cocktails or 130 seated.
There is also a new 12-metre swimming pool, as well as a spa, gym, barber and hair salon.
Rosewood now has 19 properties in its portfolio, with plans to double that by 2020. Due to open this year are hotels in Sanya, Phnom Penh and Phuket.
