Studio Putman, IGLOO re-imagine Sofitel Paris Arc De Triomphe

Sofitel Luxury Hotels unveiled the newly-renovated Sofitel Paris Arc de Triomphe, Sofitel's flagship Paris hotel as imagined by the Studio Putman in collaboration with architectural agency IGLOO.

The new Sofitel Paris Arc de Triomphe, near the Champs-Elysées and the Arc de Triomphe monument, was designed to look like a Parisian pied-à-terre. The property has a preserved Haussmanian façade and contemporary interiors. Soft colors, sleek lines and an array of textures welcome guests into an atmosphere inspired by French designer Andrée Putman and the City of Lights.

The guestrooms were designed using blue tones, contemporary furnishings and Parisian touches to oversized bathrooms and MyBed (Sofitel's exclusive bedding concept with an all-feather bed).

The public spaces include the lobby, the lounge complete with a fireplace and the Gallery that connects the lobby and lounge to the restaurant.

Sofitel Paris Arc de Triomphe is home to L'Initial, a 64-seat restaurant where head chef Thomas Bruno offers modern French cuisine. The Sofitel Paris Arc de Triomphe's bar, the first that José Da Rosa designed for a Paris hotel, has the deli-café concept established by Da Rosa. The tearoom, the first created by Da Rosa, has 26 varieties of tea and six French pastries from Parisian chefs such as Jean-Paul Hévin, Philippe Conticini, Angelina's tea room and Michael Boivin.

For events, Sofitel Paris Arc de Triomphe includes Sofitel’s InspiredMeetings concept and four adaptable function rooms named after women who had an influence on Andrée Putman. The rooms can accommodate up to 60 people.

The hotel's SoFit fitness center is open 24/7.

The Sofitel Paris Arc de Triomphe has 124 rooms, including 27 Superior Guestrooms, 66 Luxury Guestrooms, 13 Junior Suites, 11 Premium Junior Suites, five Prestige Suites and two apartments.
