Starwood‘s nascent Tribute Porfolio has added two hotels in Paris. Le Metropolitan and Le Dokhan’s are both dropping their existing Radisson branding. Previously 70,000 Club Carlson points under Radisson, both are now bookable for 20,000 SPG points per night. Starwood was not short of Paris options, however, so there is no new ground being broken here.
Both are marketed as niche boutique hotels:
Designed by French architect Francois Champsaur, Le Metropolitan’s elegant and modern aesthetic brings the essence of Paris to life in a traditional 19th Century Haussmann-style building. The rooms and suites feature a soothing color palette complemented by hardwood floors, beautiful local artwork and inspiring views over the city. Guests can relax in the hotel’s pool and wellness center before sampling local and Mediterranean cuisine in the property’s glamourous restaurant.
Originally conceived as a private townhouse, Le Dokhan’s (pictured below) retains the feeling of an intimate Parisian residence. The hotel’s interior design was crafted by celebrated local designer, Frederic Mechiche, who stayed true to the property’s neo-classical style. A treasure trove of antiques, the hotel features an original Louis Vuitton lift cabin, hand painted friezes, custom made fabrics and works of art by Picasso, Klee and Matisse. Le Dokhan’s is also home to the city’s very first Champagne bar, where guests can still choose from more than 200 different varieties of premium champagne.
Details of both can be found on the Tribute Portfolio website.
