Shangri-La Hotel, Paris has opened the new botanically-inspired Garden Wing, which offers more room options and facilities, including a French garden in its inner courtyard.
The garden is adjacent to the hotel’s two-Michelin-star restaurant L’Abeille, and is also open to non-staying guests. It features a large composition of flower and plants, a rarity among Paris hotels. Landscaped as homage to Prince Bonaparte, the wealth of flora compositions includes Japanese maple, Persian ironwood, shadbush and eucalyptus.
The new wing is created as an extension to the hotel’s main lobby and is directly accessible from the main building. Through this extension, Shangri-La Paris offers 11 new rooms and nine suites, bringing the hotel’s room count to 101. Half of them overlook the imposing Art Deco-era Palais d'Iena, while the other half faces the Eiffel Tower.
Guestrooms on the lower floors of the wing feature high ceilings, curated selections of Asian art, and fabric prints that harmonise with the garden outside. Basic amenities include complimentary wifi, dressing rooms, bathrooms with separate bath and shower, fogless mirrors with integrated flat screen televisions and heated marble floors.
