Hotel de Crillon in Paris, considered as the historic luxury palatial hotel, reopens on Wednesday after the massive architectural and artistic makeover of four years. The renovation was made with the aid of the team of 147 artisans, who were commissioned to architect the finest details of neo-Classical architecture, restoring the bygone Renaissance paintings, frescos, gold leaf trim and marble trappings- which look like a dazzling royal abode of 16th Century. The Hotel de Crillon is one of the world’s oldest luxury hotels in France. It outlooks the historic square where Louis XVI lost his head.
Hotel de Crillon in Paris was opened in 1909 after this palace was turned into a heritage hotel. The building was erected before the French Revolution in the year 1758. It has 103 guest rooms, and 44 suites with the restaurants, a bar, outdoor terrace, gym and health club on the premises. This archaic building was constructed after Louis XV commissioned the architect Ange-Jacques Gabriel to build two palaces in what would become the Place de la Concorde. Once Hotel de Crillon of Paris allured the stalwarts like Charlie Chaplin, Winston Churchill, Bill Clinton, Michael Jackson and Madonna. Now, the Rosewood Hotels & Resorts is managing the hotel.
The restoration of Hotel de Crillon in Paris lasted for two years longer than planned, partly because of the formation of a second underground floor with a luxury spa and swimming pool.
The room rates of Hotel de Crillon of Paris is ranging from 1,200 euros ($1,360) a night to between 20,000 and 25,000 for the Bernstein Suite, which is overlooking the Place de la Concorde, where Louis XVI was beheaded in 1793, after the successful end of the French Revolution and where German snipers fired on crowds during Liberation celebrations during the Second World War in 1944.
After the restoration, Hotel de Crillon now has 124 rooms, 33 suites and another 10 are the Signature suites of the greatest luxury designed by the German architect Karl Lagerfeld.
