Luxurious Paris Boutique Hotel or French Country Chateau?

We were fortunate enough to stumble upon and tour the luxurious and historical Pavillon de la Reine in Paris a decade ago. (That’s the wonder of Paris…wander around and SHAZAM!) Seeing the star jasmine in full crimson glory climbing the walls in person was unforgettable. Someday I’ll stay as a guest in this boutique hotel, a former aristocratic mansion. Its breathtaking location is in the Place des Vosges in the Marais. Oh, the Marais! It was our favorite place to shop and stroll. What I found surprising was how relaxed and quiet this magnificent former townhouse felt in the middle of the city. Almost as if we had landed in the countryside! Let’s tour the Paris boutique hotel with its dramatic interiors designed by interior architect Didier Benderli of Kérylos Intérieurs.

Pavillon de la Reine is a boutique hotel in Paris located in Place des Vosges in the Marais.

Dramatic Interiors in a Luxurious Paris Boutique Hotel

Located in the Place des Vosges (which I adored!) is this breathtaking 17th-Century Parisian architecture in Le Marais.

How old is this building in Paris? Although he did not live long enough to see its completion, Henry IV ordered the construction of the Pavillon de la Reine, built in 1612.

Who was this mansion built for? In 1612, it was called the Place Royale as it was to be an official Royal Residence.

However, this mansion became a place for high society to gather.

Racine, La Fontaine and Molière are a few examples who were here!

How many rooms are there? There are 56 guest rooms and suites in the hotel, designed with classically elegant style. You can’t miss the rich color palette.

While many of the suites feel traditional with antiques, large mirrors, rustic beams, and toile fabric wall coverings, there is plenty of modern style too.

Perhaps my favorite rooms in the hotel are those with literary references.

What may surprise you is the presence of rusticity alongside all of the luxury. For example, the rugged exposed beams:

Rustic ceilings are juxtaposed with distinctive fabric wallcoverings with toile, damask, and geometric patterns.

These patterns have a modern feel because the scale is exaggerated.

In fact, this is where my fascination began with tree mural wallpaper for my own home.

It feels so timeless and anything but old fashioned to me.

Another detail I love in this upscale Paris hotel is the lighting.

Don’t we all need a reading light on our headboard as elegant and beautifully designed as the one above?

I also love the checkered flooring which feels both elegant and whimsical.

If you’re thinking about painting your interior doors black, this beautiful hotel certainly makes a case for them.

And by now in the tour, I’m sure you have noticed how gold with grey or black is a common pairing.

The architecture in this 17th-century mansion adds so much personality and interest…especially when it is celebrated with dramatic and distinctive fabric.

Isn’t it interesting that these exuberant patterns almost begin to feel like neutral backdrops?

Lounge & Restaurant Anne in Pavillon de la Reine

I love the concept of a lounge-library, don’t you?

My favorite luxurious boutique hotel in Paris: Pavillon de la Reine. #parishotels #maraishotel #boutiquehotels

Guests can settle into comfy armchairs with a book (art books or novels from French authors) from the shelf.

The menu at Anne (named for Anne of Austria) is designed by Mathieu Pacaud, and the setting is cozy von cozy.

Here’s a taste from ANNE:

I have French readers who email me and like to remind me that the French don’t decorate for Christmas. And maybe that holds for residential living, because…

That looks like Christmas decorating to me!
