Hotel Banke takes Autograph Collection into Paris for first time
Hotel Banke has joined Autograph Collection Hotels, Marriott International’s collection of independent hotels.
The property becomes the first in Paris and the fourth in France to join the portfolio of one-of-a-kind properties around the world.
Located in the heart of the Parisian Opera district, Hotel Banke is moments from Galeries Lafayette, the city’s most exclusive shopping centre, and less than one mile away from the Louvre Museum.
The hotel occupies the former headquarters of Crédit Commercial de France originally designed by architects Paul Friesé and Cassien Bernard.
The elegant, stately façade of the 20th century building dominates the corner of Rue La Fayette and Rue Pillet, harking back to the French Belle Époque period.
Hotel Banke has an elegant feel throughout its 91 guest rooms and suites, with original features seamlessly blending with contemporary design touches, such as statement modern furniture and rich soft furnishings.
Every room has been meticulously designed to create the ultimate tranquil escape from the bustling streets of Paris.
John Licence, vice president, premium and select brands, Europe, Marriott International, said: “We are delighted to expand our offering of one-of-a-kind hotels to Paris with Hotel Banke.
“With its unique heritage as a former bank headquarters, and stunning design, Hotel Banke perfectly embodies Autograph Collection Hotel’s independent spirit.”
