France”s renowned Hotel Le Parc Hotel ” Trocadero Paris, has joined Marriott International”s Renaissance portfolio.
Almost a century old, Hotel Le Parc will undergo major refurbishments and remain open throughout. On completion, it will be rebranded as the ”Renaissance Le Parc Trocadero Paris Hotel”.
Renovations will target the 116 guest rooms and suites, meeting facilities and public areas. The establishment”s restaurant, bar and fitness centre will also be updated.
The hotel”s conference and function space will be increased to 600m” (6456ft”), with 12 rooms of varying configurations. Renaissance Le Parc”s meeting facilities will cater for 400 standing, 300 in auditorium seating, and 150 in a classroom set-up. Six additional meeting rooms will surround the hotel”s gardens.
High-speed internet access will be available in conference and guest rooms, with wi-fi in meeting rooms. Plans for a fully equipped business centre are also in place.
The hotel was formed by the merging of two main buildings, one being the former residence of Alfred Nobel, renovated in the Art Nouveau style in 1910 and partially listed as one of France”s historical monuments.
Le Relais du Parc is the establishment”s famous one-Michelin-star restaurant, owned by renowned French chef Alain Ducasse. In the listed part of the hotel, the chef owns a restaurant which caters to private lunches and dinners, Les Salons Priv”s du 59 Poincar”.
The hotel cocktail lounge, Le Parc, has a jazz theme, with tables in the shape of musical instruments, designed by French sculptor Arman.
Hotel Le Parc will be the third property to join the Renaissance brand in Paris. Renaissance Hotels was originally founded as Ramada Renaissance Hotels, the upscale segment of Ramada Inns, eventually establishing itself as a stand-alone brand.
Renaissance is owned by Marriott International, that manages a significant portion of its hotels directly, while leaving some of them to operate as franchises.
