Built alongside Fouquet's Brasserie, a "Monument Historique" known for fine dining and a celebrity clientele, the hotel combines contemporary flair in a palatial theme. The design is not stuffy, eschewing the frilly and flowery for chic elegance.
The dramatically designed lobby, decked out with dramatic gold settees, oversized mirrors, and beaucoup orchids has an extravagant ambiance that one can't help but admire.
Serving as a grand centerpiece, a marble staircase sweeps down to the hotel's entrance, and cozy seating areas with golden drapes and glass chandeliers hug the front perimeter.
The 107 guest rooms at Fouquet's, which include 40 suites, boast a more classic design in handsome browns, beiges, and muted golds. Though richly decorated, the quarters do not forsake comfort for museum-like sophistication. Settees and sitting areas are for lounging, not ogling, and you'll find utility and ease in the attractive mahogany closets, vanities, and sharkskin-set desks.
The opulent décor and impeccable service at Fouquet's Barriere create a romantic haven of privacy, luxury, and convenience.
