FOUR ACCOR HOTELS IN PARIS
Alongside the two week French Open, the Accor Group will also be offering an exceptional opportunity to enjoy the magic of Roland-Garros and to visit Paris’ historical and cultural sites while staying in the heart of the city of lights.
Formerly an historic swimming pool, the Molitor (MGallery Collection hôtel) is located in the charming 16th arrondissement just a few minutes from the celebrated tennis courts by walk, this peaceful haven offers guests a chance to escape with the Spa by Clarins, and access to the two pools that made its renown of yesteryear.
For more indulgence, check out the exception Sofitel Paris Le Faubourg which is located in the luxury area of Faubourg Saint-Honoré. The hotel’s elegant year-long renovation project, conducted by the talented Didier Gomez – and its restaurant, Le Stay Faubourg, signed by Michelin Star chef Yannick Alléno – make Sofitel Paris Le Faubourg one of the city’s most beautiful gems.
With unobstructed views of Gustave Eiffel’s iconic masterpiece, Pullman Paris Tour Eiffel raises the standards for luxury hotel services and offers a subtle blend of architectural design and contemporary taste. Close to Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Pullman Paris Montparnasse houses a culinary workshop and a garden bathed in light, an oasis of calm that is completely detached from the frenzy of Paris.
