France: European hospitality company EQ Group has opened its latest lifestyle property, the Hôtel des Grands Voyageurs in the Left Bank Quarter of Saint-Placide in Paris.
The 138-room hotel has been designed by Fabrizio Casiraghi. It is located next to Cherche-Midi and in the centre of the sixth Arrondissement.
Casiraghi has curated a global selection of artwork on display throughout the hotel, paying homage to the antique dealers’ square in St-Germain-des-Prés. The collection includes lithographs from Gustav Klimt and Marc Chagall, bespoke mirrors by artist Osanna Visconti di Modrone, and bas-relief sculptures by François Gilles.
Amenities at the hotel includes the brasserie Grands Voyageurs, serving a menu which combines French and American influences with seafood. Downstairs is an underground cocktail bar Poppy.
The hotel can cater to meetings and events for up to 50 people, and it also offers a gym with Technogym equipment.
A member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts, Hôtel des Grands Voyageurs is an independent hotel managed by EQ Hotels. It is the sister property of Hôtel Dame des Arts, also located in the Left Bank and which opened in spring this year.
In the UK, EQ Group has also revealed the launch of The Store, Oxford in February 2024.
