Saint James Paris Paris, France

Saint James Paris
Paris, France

Style: Classic Luxury. Built: 1892. Remodeled: 2011. Rooms: 48. Suites: 30.

This grand neo-classical mansion was built in 1892 on Paris' first airfield from where hot air-balloons used to take off, to be a foundation hosting the French students. After a hundred years, it became the very exclusive Saint James Club as well as the only chateau-hotel of the capital, offering tailored services to each guest.

Located in its own private gardens, at a few minutes' walk from the Arc de Triomphe and Trocadéro, the Saint James Paris has just been redesigned by the dream-maker Bambi Sloan who added her touch of extravaganza to its neo-classical features to create the atmosphere of an eccentric family house where guests are welcome like friends.

The 48 spacious rooms & suites are all individually decorated, each of them with its own story. At the guests' disposal are an impressive Library Bar, a fine cuisine restaurant and its summer terrace in the garden, and spa with an extensive fitness room, steam rooms as well as massage parlours offering treatments based on gems by the exclusive French brand Gemology. Whether on a business trip or for leisure, you will enjoy the Saint James Paris for its taste of exclusiveness and luxury in a warm and friendly atmosphere.

Note Bene
The 48 rooms and suites are large, quiet, and luminous and look either onto the fountain or the garden.They are all individually decorated with different shades of wall coverings, styled or design furniture, and antique or contemporary paintings. On the top floor, each room has its private terrace, skylights radiating light, secluded with walls of bamboo. From the modern, minimalist suites to the Superior Rooms with big wooden doors, sloped ceilings, tall windows, and antiques juxtaposed with modern flourishes (like a flat screen tv)-- each room is tastefully decorated by the owner, who meticulously designs as if the hotel was her own home, with Parisian boutique furniture.
