Hôtel Plaza Athénée: THG Luxury Featured in Parisian Grand Dame Property
In Paris, if you’re looking for a hotel that radiates undisputed comfort and opulence along with old-world elegance, look no further than Hôtel Plaza Athénée. Having won over international clientele with decades of unmatched luxury and service, this is one grand dame hotel that will not disappoint. Notably, the Hôtel Plaza Athénée’s interior features THG luxury bath fittings: the refined Spirit collection. As artisans of ultra-luxury, custom-crafted faucetry and bath fixtures, THG is well suited as the fitting of choice for the Hôtel Plaza Athénée, given that the brand is found in the world’s finest hotels, residences, yachts and other high-end properties.
Impressively situated between the Avenue des Champs Elysées and the Eiffel Tower, in the heart of Paris’ fashion, entertainment and business center, Hôtel Plaza Athénée serves as urban oasis of luxury. Owned by the Dorchester Collection, built in 1911 and renovated in 2009, the 191-room hotel entices guests upon entrance with its warm terra cotta, gold and bronze lobby. The hotel’s sumptuous decor is destined to satisfy discerning guests; recently renovated and fragrantly infused with amber scents, the 146 spacious rooms and 45 suites showcase traditional-contemporary French style. Décor is either in Louis XVI style with decorative materials such as taffetas, and velvet and golden embroideries, offering the touch of a real Parisian home, or Art Déco style with prevailing macassar, ebony and mahogany woods. Bath environments are done in opulent marble or “faïence” – a fine tin-glaze on a delicate pale buff earthenware body. The baths benefit from THG’s Spirit collection designed by Pierre–Yves Rochon. THG has enjoyed a fruitful relationship with the world-renowned contemporary interior designer; he is responsible for numerous THG collections including Faubourg, Frivole, and Froufrou. Rochon has also created numerous, award–winning luxury interiors, among them, the Four Seasons, Ritz–Carlton and Sofitel. In the case of the Hôtel Plaza Athénée, it is the inherently streamlined 19th century classic design of Rocha’s Spirit fixtures that allow the interiors to shine.
Ultimately, THG’s Spirit luxury faucetry collection is an ideal choice for the Hôtel Plaza Athénée – a grand dame property that goes out of its way to lavish its guests with the finest in accommodations, services and amenities.
