PARIS—The privately owned Hôtel Verneuil Saint-Germain completed renovations of the 26-room historic property.
Housed in a 17th Century building in Saint-Germain-des-Pres, Hôtel Verneuil Saint-Germain now offers a contemporary Parisian design for guests.
The revamped interior by design team Patrick and Caroline Leghima reveals the culture and history of the Saint-Germain-des-Pres arrondissement in its décor. Cream rolls of parchment adorn wall niches in a nod to the historical publishing houses of the Left Bank, while wooden beams and the use of faded green are an homage to the colored doors in the antiques district near the hotel. Exposed wood beams also line many of the guestrooms and baths, trompe l'oeil covers the ceilings, the elevator is lined in patterned tapestry and public spaces feature design touches by owner Nicolas Nonon.
The streets surrounding Hôtel Verneuil Saint-Germain offer an array of shops, cafés, art galleries and restaurants, the Seine and Musée d’Orsay. The Louvre is a short walk across the Pont du Carrousel over the river.
Guestrooms now feature air conditioning on all floors, larger bedding, showers, flat-screen televisions and free WiFi throughout the hotel.
The property also revamped its multilingual website.
