Art World Insider

Explore the city’s myriad museums, galleries, and studios, with Le Royal Monceau–Raffles Paris
Luxury By Design

After a two-year overhaul by French interior designer, Philippe Starck, Le Royal Monceau–Raffles Paris has been revitalized as a luxury art hotel with playful design flourishes at every turn. Poetry is etched into the floor panels, and written behind mirrors; acoustic guitars and sheet music have been thoughtfully placed in guest rooms; and the state-of-the-art 99-seat screening, Katara Cinema, room features a single crimson seat amid a sea of taupe leather chairs.

And art now plays a starring role throughout the hotel with the addition of an on-site contemporary art gallery, Arts District, whose exhibitions rotate quarterly; as well as an extensive art bookstore featuring more than 700 titles, and a private art collection featuring nearly 1,000 works, primarily of fine art photography.

Contemporary art and iconic design intersect at Art District, Le Royal Monceau's on-site gallery.
