Sofitel Paris Le Faubourg

Fashionable high style in Paris
An 18th-century private mansion and former home to the French Marie Claire magazine, Sofitel Paris Le Faubourg is located in a highly elegant area of Paris, on a street close enough to the American Embassy to require round-the-clock police guards.

Steps away from the Tuileries Gardens and Grand Palais Galeries, this newly renovated hotel has glamour that will leave you swooning. Walk inside to a bustling bar area, where shoppers converge and guests take a coffee or wine break and sink into Louis XV-style armchairs to absorb the surrounding gallery of larger-than-life prints of fashion icons.

The lovely courtyard is another option to absorb the charming Parisian atmosphere.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • Thanks to famous photographers Horst P. Horst, Chaloner Woods and Irving Penn, a fashion show atmosphere ties the neighborhood (namely Rue du Fauourg Saint Honoré) to the Sofitel, a plan orchestrated by local designer Didier Gomez.
  • Beyond the fitness room with walls covered in leather and past the golden globe fountain is a spa-like area with a hammam for women and one for m.
  • If more relaxation is in order, the concierge will happily book a massage (given an hour’s notice) so that you may enjoy the eco-friendly Kos Paris products. The spa is next to the fitness room, but double doors create a barrier of silence.
  • A library dedicated to fashion and haute couture overlooks the lobby. It features bold and sumptuous couturiers exhibitions.
  • You will be lulled by the trickling fountains in the patio, one of the loveliest secret gardens in the heart of Paris.

Things to Know
  • Can’t decide which decadent dessert to pick at Blossom restaurant? Pick one favorite ingredient and the rest is a work of edible art in action as the chefs prepare a tailor-made dish.
  • Gomes’ retro ’60s and ’ 70s vision is carried forward with black-and-white photographs of fashionable women, then painted in pastels and displayed in each room; many of the images are placed over the bed.
  • Fashion is the design inspiration at this chic Parisian hotel. One of the rooms has a diamond-shaped cocktail table, while another boasts leather covering on closet doors.
The Rooms
  • Amenities in all rooms hail from Balmain, whether in the deluxe category or second room category (size is the difference).
  • The suites of the Sofitel were architecturally designed to emulate a Parisian home, with royal molding over thresholds and color schemes of neutrals mixed with yellow and gold tones.
  • Every room has a Nespresso machine, and all the linens and accents coordinate with the pastel artwork on the walls; a sense of haute couture is felt throughout the house.
  • In some accommodations, the entire wall is a photograph of a glamorous Barbie-like woman with an hour-glass figure dressed in a fitted black dress with a white frilly chiffon shrug and black gloves — it is also the door entrance to a closet.
The Restaurants
  • With seasonal, local, sustainable and mostly organic ingredients, Blossom restaurant entices gastronomy lovers.

  • On a terrace that surrounds the glass roof of the hotel lobby, Blossom chef Anaïs Foray grows aromatic plants, vegetables and a few edible flowers she uses in her plating. 

  • Le Bar du Faubourg is a hip spot to gather and eye the warm clubby, black-and-white décor and fashion photography, as well as indulge light bites and a couple excellent cocktails.
