Marriott International has re-branded Paris' largest hotel convention centre following a complete restoration to all 757 rooms and public areas. The Paris Marriott Rive Gauche Hotel & Conference Centre brings the company's portfolio in the city to eight.
In keeping with Marriott's policy of not adding its name to a hotel until renovations are complete - as is the case with London's Grosvenor House, which gains its JW Marriott title next year after some £100m ($199m) in refurbishments - the Rive Gauche has actually operated as a Marriott since its acquisition in March 2006.
The property remains an all-business hotel and Marriott has endeavoured to instil a sense of ”business chic” throughout, with a duplex public space connected to the lobby that offers separate yet open ”nooks” for more casual meetings. R'Yves (bar pictured) offers breakfast, lunch, dinner, cocktails and snacks, along with wi-fi connection throughout.
Nearby, adjacent to the business centre, are two semi-private salons with flat-panel TVs and plug-in dataports for those who prefer a quieter environment. The hotel also boasts 48,883sq ft (14,900sq m) of conference space, the largest in Paris, which includes a 13,240sq ft ballroom with a pre-function foyer area of 6,781sq ft. A 160-seat auditorium and 40 banquet rooms are also available.
Guest room amenities include 24-hour room service and high speed wi-fi internet access, in addition to facilities such as a concierge, Elite lounge, parking and a beauty salon.
Located on the Left Bank in the 14th Arrondissement at 17, Boulevard Saint Jacques, the hotel is a 15 minute walk from Montparnasse, with links to the Arc de Triomphe, the Champs Elysees and the Eiffel Tower via a metro station at Saint-Jacques.
