Style, design and fashion-conscious groups, take note. The refurbished Sofitel Le Faubourg has taken inspiration from neighbouring high fashion houses in the Saint-Honoré district to model the hotel’s new look on a Parisian couture house.

The five-star, 147-room property's interior, showcasing 'the elegance of the 18th Century', is the work of designer Didier Gomez, who has in the past collaborated with the likes of Louis Vuitton, Dior and Kenzo.

Two new modular event spaces, equipped with the latest technology, accommodate up to 50 people for meetings, conferences and shows. Stylish interiors with artwork by Anish Kapoor are complemented by catering by Yannick Alléno.

Alléno, a renowned, triple-Michelin-starred chef, also oversees the hotel's new signature restaurant, STAY – 'an urban dining concept based on travel' – which features a communal sharing table and a pastry library showcasing the chef’s best-kept secrets. The fashion-inspired bar offers lunch and 'Couture Cocktails'.

The property's 24-hour wellbeing centre includes an 'Experience' steam room with special lighting effects, two hammams and a range of massage options and treatments using Cinq Mondes products. There is also a fitness centre and the option of 'Fit&Go' – a personal training session, massage and breakfast.

Among Le Faubourg's 147 rooms are 36 suites, the pièce de résistance being the Couture apartment, which commands spectacular views across the Parisian skyline.

Free wi-fi runs throughout the property.
