history, the 116-room Renaissance Paris Hotel Le Parc Trocadero recently
completed its first phase of renovations and officially became part of the Renaissance Hotels & Resorts brand of Marriott
International. It is the third
Renaissance-branded hotel in Paris.
Almost a century old, the Le Parc Hotel was formed by the merging of two main buildings and three annexes surrounding a leafy courtyard.
The first, at 55-57 Avenue Raymond Poincaré, was built in 1912 and immediately became a privileged residence for the elite of Parisian
society. The second and oldest building, the Hotel Particulier at Number 59, was the former residence of Alfred Nobel. It was rebuilt in 1910
in the Art Nouveau style by architects Charles Letrosne and Camille Garnier and is a designated French historical monument. Behind these
buildings are three ”Anglo-Normands” buildings that once housed the bronze and glassware
workshops of La Maison Bagues, the firm which specialized in exquisite chandeliers and sconces. They now contain guest rooms and conference facilities overlooking the inner
garden and courtyard.
The hotel joined Marriott International’s lodging portfolio in fall 2007, under a management agreement signed with Strategic Hotels &
Resorts Inc. It was closed in January 2008 for renovations to the lobby, bar and guest rooms, which were refurnished and installed with flat
screen televisions, high-speed Internet access and video on demand. The hotel has been
equipped with the finest technology and latest life and fire-safety equipment, while retaining the
authentic charm of a beautiful French residence and high standard of service. A further
redesign of the hotel will be completed by 2010.
Fine Dining and Unique Conference Facilities
The kitchens of the hotel restaurant, Le Relais du Parc, are directed by Romain Corbière, a chef trained by Alain Ducasse at the Louis XV in
Monaco. In addition to dining in the restaurant, guests may enjoy a relaxing lunch or dinner by moonlight, outdoors in the 1,200 meter
The Renaissance Paris Hotel Le Parc Trocadero has 600 square meters of function space comprised of 12 meeting rooms, most with
sunlight and direct access to the courtyard. The hotel can host conferences or private lunches and dinners for up to 400 persons (400 at
cocktail receptions, 300 in theater seating and 150 in a classroom setup). Six meeting rooms are situated around the garden. Private
lunches and dinners can be hosted in the listed part of the hotel in “Les Salons Privés du 59 Poincaré”.
The Marriott International hotel portfolio includes eight hotels in Paris with the Le Parc Hotel: the Paris Marriott Champs Elysees, the Paris
Marriott Rive Gauche Hotel & Conference Center, the Renaissance Paris La Defense, the Renaissance Paris Place Vendome, the Courtyard
by Marriott Paris Neuilly, the Courtyard by Marriott Paris Defense West - Colombes and the newly rebranded Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport
Marriott Hotel. A ninth Paris hotel, the 118-room Renaissance Paris Arc de Triomphe will open in 2009 on Avenue Wagram, about 300 meters
north of the Arc de Triomphe.
