Hotel Sezz Paris
Tucked behind a classic Art Nouveau façade, Hotel Sezz Paris is a haute-design mecca that places extraordinary emphasis on service, shaking up the luxe Right Bank Passy neighborhood in the process. With a sweeping view of the Eiffel tower from its hillside location across the Seine, Design Hotel Sezz has one Parisian ‘must’ taken care of; but its intimate interiors, with color schemes calculated to echo Paris’ basic palette of beige stone, gray slate and blue-gray sky, offer a significant update on high-end French hospitality. The Sezz has become a fixture on international travel magazines’ Top 10 lists thanks to its design sharpness and intensely personal service, starting with the lack of reception desk: a personal assistant takes care of guests’ needs from the moment they enter the hotel, welcoming them with a drink. Philippe Starck’s protégé Christophe Pillet is responsible for the interiors, which feature a comeback for chrome and leather in the 26 guestrooms (including 12 suites and 1 Eiffel suite). Beds made of those two materials, chrome tables, red leather seating, glass chandeliers by Mazzega, and tubs for two all contribute to a more than slightly decadent, sharp-edged design feeling that harkens back to over-the-top decades past. The bar downstairs offers alcoves in the shape of rose petals as well as the first Veuve Cliquot bar in Paris, open from after breakfast until late. It all adds up to high-design indulgence that is steeped in its romantic locale.
