Art and design have always been important in Hôtel de Crillon's history. Located in the heart of Paris at 10 Place de la Concorde, the Hôtel de Crillon is one of the most historic and emblematic buildings of the French capital.
Numerous artists and craftsmen collaborated to revive the splendors of this palace, in harmony with the codes of the 21st century. All work was in keeping with Rosewood Hotels & Resorts' philosophy in which each property reflects the history, culture and sensibilities of its country and place. The guiding principle was respect for history, with an injection of modernity and Parisian irreverence.
The architect, Richard Martinet, a specialist in restoring iconic buildings throughout the world, elevated the 18th century building to divine heights—including the sumptuous heritage reception rooms on the second floor, listed as historic monuments. Art direction was managed by Aline Asmar d’Amman, responsible for ensuring the consistency of the decoration project between the four interior designers that worked together: Tristan Auer, Chahan Minassian, Cyril Vergniol and Culture in Architecture.
For the reopening of the hotel in 2017, 147 artists and 250 French craftspersons worked in collaboration.
The custom-built furniture and décor, as well as the numerous art pieces found throughout the hotel, give Hôtel de Crillon a residential style with the ambiance of a warm and friendly home.
