Eiffel Blomet for PFW
I have to say I love staying in hotels. This upcoming fashion week if you haven’t booked your hotel yet, you might want to consider the Eiffel Blomet in Paris. The hotel has a sauna and a pool, so you can lie about saying you went somewhere hot. When I stayed at the luxurious boutique hotel it was just what I needed.
The Hotel Eiffel Blomet has reopened after a complete renovation. The hotel is ideally located just a few minutes from the Eiffel Tower and close to the Beaugrenelle shopping center. Not far from the Eiffel Tower, the area surrounding Hotel Eiffel Blomet has a lot history in the area.
Located on the street of the same name, which housed a famous cabaret club that welcomed the likes of Josephine Baker, Miró and sculptor Pablo Gargallo, Hotel Eiffel Blomet has undergone a renovation from the 30’s heyday.
Built-in 1931 at the height of the Jazz Age, the building has refound its Art Deco elegance. A team of well-known hoteliers has lent their expertise to the project, and the interior architecture has been created by Bruno Borrione (of the hotels Prince de Galles and Royal Monceau). The Art Deco theme is present but hasn’t been taken too literally either – it doesn’t feel like you’re walking into a jazz club/costume party.
The entrance is elegant and understated – to your left, the reception; to your right, a cozy bar area where you can help yourself to a drink and read the newspapers. Another reason I like hotels because they get newspapers. There is nothing better than sipping on a nice cappuccino and reading a daily paper.
The 78 rooms and 9 suites come in a range of sizes – catering for families, business trips, romantic city breaks. Nespresso machines, closet space, the softest cotton sheets you’ll find, and of course, given the renovation, everything is brand spanking new. Nuxe beauty products give a fancy shower or bath. Each room is carefully thought out and space has been optimised but no corners cut in terms of quality.
On the ground floor, you’ll find the breakfast dining area which covers all bases for a relaxing petit déjeuner before you start your day. You’re offered a buffet of yogurt, sliced meats, and cheese, bread and jams, the quintessential pastries. There’s a little leafy courtyard which is perfect for a drink or your breakfast
I was able to have meetings in my room with a common area and have drinks with friends on the built-in terrace. Afterward, we decided to take a late night dip in the pool and refresh in the sauna. How divine was our stay!
This is why I think it’s an ideal spot for your Paris Fashion Week home.
With plenty of room in your suite for all your luggage. Large enough to have an after hour fashion week model party with plenty of room to dance with a stocked mini bar until the troops arrive with more wine. I am always on the hunt for the latest fancy crash pad with a private terrace in the suite.
While staying at the four-star hotel I could not resist in doing a little photo shoot. The interiors and the long hallways begged for it. The warm, lively tones of brown wood and leather contrast beautifully with the pastel accents of furniture and fittings.
Everything is perfectly balanced and meticulously finished. All materials have been selected with care; from grained leather to raffia, from rosewood to bronze. The rooms are for James Bond and his latest conquest.
The Rooms Eiffel Blomet
After drawing the curtains and turning off the lights I slept like a baby in the enormous bed. It could easily sleep, four people. The bed is the central element in these large rooms and it’s enhanced by a luxurious quilt and cushions. Artful splashes of color ensure that linens, furniture, and carpeting complement the elegant Art Deco lines.
The bathroom is where all the fun happens. We were there for a romantic evening and the huge showroom with my favorite toiletries made the stay. We were able to get up to a lot of naughty things in the glass shower!
Suites at the Hotel Eiffel Blomet are comprised of an entrance, a cocoon lounge, and a beautifully exposed terrace. The elegant lines of the 1930s are in the spotlight; tailor-made furnishings recall the richness and inspirations of the Art Deco movement both in their warm subtlety and their ingenuity. And, for even more comfort, cozy bathrobes await you in the bathroom with NUXE RÊVE DE MIEL beauty and bath products!
