Tango Diva : Travel Stories for Women, by Women

by Suzanne Dunning

Amid Paris’ historic streets, just-off-the-runway fashions, and sinfully sweet pastry shops, the old-world glamour of the Hôtel de la Trémoille awaits you.

Tucked along a quiet street, Hôtel de la Trémoille is in the heart of Paris’ Golden Triangle (the area between the Champs Elysées and the Seine), within walking distance to Paris landmarks like Avenue Montaigne, La Défense business district, and the Palais des Congrès, as well as some of the hottest venues in Paris.

Having reopened in 2002 after a fifteen-month renovation during which designer Richard Martinet completely reconfigured the hotel’s layout, Hôtel de la Trémoille is more luxurious than ever, while still maintaining its architectural heritage and grandeur. Case in point is the hotel’s lobby, aglow with old-world lamps, delicate portraits, and plenty of plush, deep-crimson armchairs to sink into after a long day of sightseeing and shopping.

Upstairs, Hôtel de la Trémoille boasts ninety-three utterly decadent rooms, junior suites, and deluxe suites. Each room is carefully tailored with a blend of traditional and contemporary styling and one of over thirty harmonious color schemes. Luxurious fabrics like silk, faux fur, and mohair as well as rich tapestries, cream-colored walls, and fresh flowers will pamper your senses; private balconies and bay windows open up to views of the world’s most romantic city.

Le Louis, the hotel’s restaurant showcases the glamour of the 30’s. The equally fabulous menu changes with the seasons, inviting you to savour France’s freshest produce. Guests also have the option of retreating to private salons for more intimate meals.

For Divas who can’t be bothered to leave their rooms, Hôtel de la Trémoille offers an ingenious system whereby each room has a private compartment, or “hatch,” that links the room to the hallway, allowing you to receive room service without ever having to put on a bathrobe!

¡Vive La Trémoille!

93 rooms, including 23 standard rooms, 43 superior rooms, 14 deluxe rooms, 8 junior suites, and 5 one-bedroom suites.
