After 159 years of life in Paris, the emblematic Sofitel the Scribe Paris Opéra hotel of the Accor group opens a new page by unveiling its transformation after two years of renovation.
On 6 April 2018, the Sofitel the Scribe Paris Opéra entered into renovation to offer its customers a brand new design inspired by its history in the emblematic city of Paris and the Parisian spirit. The mythical hotel is located in the heart of the capital and was built as part of the creation of the opera district. Those who stay here have the chance to be surrounded by the most beautiful streets of Paris such as the rue de la Paix, the place Vendôme, or by the emblematic districts including the royal palace, the Louvre museum etc…
To achieve this The Accor group decided to call on Wilson Associates a pioneer in the luxury design industry. Tristan Auer, the artistic director of Wilson Associates, with an inescapable reputation in terms of decoration and design, was able to give the Sofitel Le Scribe Paris Opéra a second wind. Thanks to his skills, the hotel is now synonymous with nobility and elegance associated with the Parisian art of living. The artist thus demonstrates that modernity and history can be combined, allowing the hotel to retain its heritage despite the renovation
“Wilson’s team is restoring the hotel to its former glory, inspired by its historic setting. The hotel, which has remained open throughout its transformation, aims to embody the spirit of Paris by focusing on its main assets, namely its location in the Opera district, as well as its new interiors and catering facilities” describes Wilson Associates.
Indeed, the Sofitel Le Scribe Paris Opéra hotel carries with it an important heritage, so it was essential that it be at the heart of the metamorphosis. It was the meeting place for the Parisian elite, famous figures and artists. Two years after its construction, the hotel was chosen as the headquarters of the Jockey Club which welcomed the elite of French and European society during the Second Empire. It was then chosen by the Enlightenment brothers, who in 1895 showed the world’s first cinema projection there. Many people chose this Parisian sanctuary as their home, including Louis Vuitton and Josephine Baker.
Therefore, Tristan Auer has decided to honour this warm meeting place by renovating the hotel with a certain masculine side that recreates a men’s club in a gentlemen’s spirit. The hotel then consists of 6 meeting rooms, a reception room, a 42-seat restaurant, a 49-seat bar and a 30-seat café.
To counterbalance this masculine atmosphere, the designer has adorned the 201 rooms and the “tea room” with feminine decorations, giving a heavenly and soft touch to this century-old hotel. Among the rooms are 39 luxurious suites and duplex flats, each of which can cater for different categories of guests.
Guests in the bar, restaurant and café are served by a catering team offering fine cuisine. In the restaurant, the service impresses its customers with dishes that are just as varied, adapted to the season, but above all with French and Mediterranean cuisine of course. Guests can enjoy a selection of tea and coffee at the hotel’s café, accompanied by refined and gourmet pastries.
