Hôtel Le Bristol, Paris undergoing transformative renovation

Get ready for a new—and improved—Hôtel Le Bristol, Paris. The hotel is currently undergoing a $33 million renovation, led by Maja Oetker, whose family owns the hotel, and Pierre-Yves Rochon, which includes a new French-style spa, an extensive redesign of the property’s signature three-Michelin-star Gastronomic Restaurant and the addition of two new suites.

Set to debut in late July, the new two-bedroom Honeymoon Suite will encompass the hotel’s entire eighth floor. Designed for couples, the suite will offer dual views of the oval courtyard and garden, and shopping landmark rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré. Casted in in champagne and red, the living space features a dining area, with seating for eight, kitchen and office space with a balcony, providing panoramic views of the Eiffel Tower, the Invalides and the Grand Palais. The first bedroom offers his and her bathrooms equipped with a shower, steam room and soaking tub, while the second is complete with two balconies, as well as a bathtub with Eiffel Tower views.

In addition to the new suites, the French-style Le Bristol Spa will double in size to more than 6,000 square feet and will offer a relaxation area and eight treatment rooms, including a wet room for hydrotherapy treatments and a double treatment room complete with Jacuzzi. Several treatment rooms will also offer serene views of the courtyard.  Along with the spa, the hotel will offer a fitness center with a separate area for children.

The hotel’s signature, three-Michelin-star Gastronomic Restaurant, whose location within the hotel changes seasonally, will move into one permanent space, the restaurant's current summer venue. It will seat up to 50 guests and is undergoing an extensive redesign to include a marble fireplace and floors, as well as expansive views of the hotel garden and outdoor terrace. Le Bristol Spa and Gastronomic Restaurant are slated for completion in mid-October.
