Situated between the city’s 2nd and 9th districts, the Kimpton St Honoré Paris enjoys easy access to some of the most famous spots in Paris. Duck into one of several cafes lining the streets on a stroll through the surrounding Opera neighborhood or venture further to find yourself at the doors of the Louvre, just a fifteen-minute walk from the hotel. For those who prefer public transportation, the Opera metro station is just five minutes down the road and connects guests to attractions like the Eiffel Tower (23 minutes by metro) or Champs-Élysées (17 minutes by metro).
The stunning art nouveau building that is now the Kimpton St Honoré Paris was built in 1917 and once housed a luxury branch of the famous La Samartiaine department store. After completing renovations in 2021, the Kimpton St Honoré Paris opened its doors, breathing new life into the century-old property. Guests can still see the building’s original staircases and mechanical elevators, designated as historical landmarks, inside the main lobby.
The property has 123 rooms and 26 suites, each individually designed by Charles Zana, who also spearheaded design projects for brands like Cartier and Goyard.
Guests can enjoy services at the hotel’s on-site spa, which features a heated indoor swimming pool and a steam room, and access to a 24-hour fitness center. There is also complimentary wifi throughout the hotel.
