The staff is amiable and demonstrate cheerful demeanors. If you’re trying to practice your French, simply ask the staff to speak slowly en français or Pouvez-vous parler plus lentement s’il vous plaît? Nicholas, who showed us to our rooms, was truly patient and accommodating in this area and his eyes smiled behind his glasses while we failed to properly conjugate verbs. While the flooring resembles a beautiful assortment of white, blue and grey marble, it is actually a soft carpet. Once we arrived to our room we are delighted by the modern portraits on the wall, as well as the light grey with blue accent details throughout the room which coordinate to the entire hotel’s aesthetic. From the marble showers with gold hardware to the Maison Martin Margiela shampoos and lotions in the signature scent, Jazz Club, there is a romantic allure to this hotel matched with minimalistic luxuries. A classic novel (printed in French) is placed bedside in each room. We immediately relaxed in this Parisian building which somehow extended its energy to make us feel like we were transported back to a simpler time but with all the modern amenities.
