Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Friday, 19 June 2009

Marriott recently opened its latest Renaissance Hotel in the beautiful city of Paris, France.

The 118-room Renaissance Paris Arc de Triomphe combines an ultra-modern design by renowned Paris architect Christian de Portzamparc with the best of the Renaissance brand experience.

Built on the site of the famous Theatre de lempire, the hotel is already causing a buzz in Paris design circles.

Portzamparc materializes values of modernity as well as comfort and quality. The hotels signature wavy, all-glass exterior pays homage to the historic architecture on the Avenue Wagram. Ground-floor retail shops, selling modern home furnishings, fit perfectly with the location which is quickly becoming a design hub in Paris. The hotel also has direct and exclusive access to Salle Wagram, the famous banquet and event venue built in 1865 that has been fully restored according to Portzenparcs design.

Just steps from the Arc de Triomphe and Avenue des Champs-Elysees, the Renaissance Paris Arc de Triomphe has spectacular views of Paris from its top floors.

The hotels guest rooms and 22 suites are fitted with VoIP telephones, wired and wireless Internet access, high-definition, LCD televisions and digital connectivity panel allowing guests to connect their laptops, camcorders, digital cameras, video games and more. Wireless Internet access is available throughout the building.

Opening rates begin at 289 per night.

Makassar Lounge & Restaurant combines the exotic with the familiar, blending French Provence bistro flavors with authentic Indonesian dishes, such as Be Pasih Mepanggang (marinated and grilled sword fish, sweet potato with shallots), Satau Ayam (brochette of marinated chicken, yellow rice) and Gendag Mekuah (papaya Soup, gambas, mussels and spices). The Sulawesi chefs table is an intimate private dining space.

Guest amenities include a 70-square-meter fitness center and a business center open 24 hours a day. For social events and conferences, the Renaissance Paris Arc de Triomphe offers 150 square metres of space that can be divided into two sections or five breakout rooms in varying configurations. A terrace of more than 200 square meters is available for cocktails and coffee breaks and overlooks gardens and the event venue Salle Wagram, which will once again be associated with music and trendy parties.

The Renaissance Paris Arc de Triomphe is our latest gem in a global portfolio of more than 140 hotels and resorts said Tina Edmundson, senior vice president, lifestyle brands and Renaissance operations. Set in the heart of Paris, the hotel provokes the guests sense of discovery, offering cutting-edge architecture, intriguing interiors and a restaurant and lounge that is undeniably Parisian all with a touch of the exotic.

Both the Renaissance Paris Arc de Triomphe and the Salle Wagram are owned by Empire SAS, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Altarea SA, a publicly traded French company. The hotel operates under a management agreement, with Alex Fiz as general manager and Daunia Cesari as hotel sales leader. 

The Arc de Triomphe hotel is the companys fourth Renaissance hotel in Paris.
