BETHESDA, MD – Renaissance Hotels has opened its sixth hotel in the emerging neighbourhood of La Republique, Paris. Located near Le Marais and Canal Saint Martin, Renaissance Republique, a former home for traveling artists, is ideal for experiencing the City of Lights’ newest ‘it’ district in style.
Inspired by the bohemian soul of the Republique district, the hotel has been modelled by renowned interior designer Didier Gomez. Best known for his creations for Yves Saint Laurent, LVMH, De Beers, among others, his interiors give an overall contemporary feel with exotic woods and tawny leather contrasted with contemporary artwork in the guestrooms and public spaces. Gomez’s design, a generous melting pot fitting with today’s Paris, includes cross-cultural features including a sculpture from African in the lobby, furnishings from Asia in the guestrooms and local Parisian street art throughout. In his design, Gomez has brought the outside in with tree motifs in the guestrooms, cloud shaped ceiling lights and a specular vegetation wall in the hotel’s expansive outdoor terrace.
Renaissance Hotels recently announced its new global “Fearlessly Chic” design philosophy where indigenous touch points infused into the design of each unique hotel capture a spirit of wanderlust to inspire guests to explore the neighbourhood and discover the unexpected.
“Today’s Next Generation business traveler has a desire for discovery and wanderlust. We are so pleased to be adding the Renaissance Republique to our Paris portfolio, where Renaissance Hotels have been so well received, to enable our guests to discover this thriving area of the city.” says Amy McPherson, president and managing director, Marriott International, Europe.
