Place des Vosges is the oldest square in Paris, and the heart of the Marais, the city’s oldest neighborhood. The 17th-century buildings bordering the plaza feature a vaulted arcade, an elegant walkway for pedestrians and are home to cafés and galleries. On the north side of the square, a subtle sign etched in stone announces the hotel, and another arched passage leads guests to the expansive courtyard of the Pavillon de la Reine. The grand Henri IV–style façade is cloaked in ivy, with red geraniums overflowing from the window boxes. On warm days, a few guests always seem to find themselves paralyzed in this sanctuary, despite the charming neighborhood steps away.

Moving indoors, the lobby and common spaces of the first floor feel like the comfortable library-esque living spaces of a members-only club. Velvet sofas grouped with tables and armchairs create gathering spots for the simple breakfast spread every morning, and transition to cozy nooks for reading or relaxing with a scotch late in the day. A small gym and petite spa on the lower level are another draw for guests.

The hotel has 56 rooms and suites—all of which are unique in design and décor, resulting in different room personalities. Pavillon de la Reine has a loyal following of regular guests, many of whom are savvy to a specific room they request time and again. For first time guests with particular taste, ask our team for advice, as this is certainly a property to be decisive with your requests. Some have toile wallpaper and exposed beams, while others have a modern French-gothic vibe with black chandeliers and trim. Bathrooms are mostly in black and white marble, though also come in various layouts. Hallways feature mod light fixtures.

Celebrity Chef Mathieu Pacaud (of Hexagone and Histoires) helms the hotel’s Michelin-starred restaurant, Anne, where the menu echoes the vibe of the hotel itself: elegant and understated, but excellent. Expect contemporary takes on French classics like filet of sole and streak frites, plus a four-course, carte-blanche tasting menu; while curated room service offerings incorporate elevated comfort food like truffle croque-monsieur.

Who Should Stay

Those who want the personality and buzz of a dynamic neighborhood and a boutique residential feel and don't need pampering service. Couples and small families will both be happy. The close proximity to the Musée Picasso, Centre Pompidou, and many of Paris’ finest galleries makes it an ideal hotel for art aficionados. Ultimately, this hotel is informal and down-to-earth, and best serves a clientele who is the same.
