Situated at 247-251 rue Saint-Honoré (1st), The Mandarin Oriental is ideally situated a few steps from Place Vendôme, the Tuileries Gardens, the Louvre and the Orsay museum. Opened in June 2011, this Palace offers 98 rooms and 40 suites, some with private terraces. The most beautiful is the Royale Mandarin Suite: an elegant 350 m2 duplex penthouse suite offering a 360° panoramic view over Paris.All of the hotel’s spaces are arranged around a vast, tranquil and green interior patio with over 100 trees and bushes. This eco-friendly hotel is the first to have received the HQE (Haute Qualité Environnementale) certification; in 2016, a vegetable garden was even installed on the hotel’s roof. The transformation of this 30s Art Deco establishment with its listed facade was directed by French architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte. The decoration of the bedrooms and public spaces was completed by the staff of Sybille de Margerie, and the bars and restaurants were entrusted to the design team of Patrick Jouin.

The restaurants Sur Mesure and Camélia

As well as its so-called "Parisian, chic and modern" decor, the palace boasts two quality restaurants directed by starred chef Thierry Marx: the gastronomic cooking at the Sur Mesure and inventive cooking at the Camélia with its "45 minutes-45 euros" menu. In 2012, the Sur Mesure was awarded two stars in the Michelin Guide. L’Honoré, for its part, is the chef’s detox and vegan restaurant. A gourmet wellness concept available from breakfast to mid-afternoon snacks.Mandarin Oriental has 4 reception halls and meeting rooms with views onto the garden. Like all Palace hotels, this establishment boasts one of the largest spas in the city: 900 m2 with spaces for private hire including three designed for couples, a herbal hammam, rain showers and treatments inspired by traditional Chinese medicine. The treatment space is open to non-hotel guest clients.

Finally, a 14 m swimming pool and a fully equipped fitness centre, presided over by the renowned personal trainer Nicolas Veret, complete the facilities. The hotel is directed by the former director general of Paris’ Hôtel Crillon, Philippe Lebœuf.
