Once the private residence of cognac distillers, now a prestigious hotel
Built as a private residence by renowned cognac distillers – the Hennessy family in 1907, La Clef Champs-Élysées Paris is housed in a five-story Haussmannian-style building that has kept every bit of its character and charm over the century.
CapitaLand’s wholly-owned lodging business unit, The Ascott Limited (Ascott), has opened La Clef Champs-Élysées Paris in France, its third property under The Crest Collection – a prized selection of some of Ascott’s most prestigious and unique luxury serviced residences.
Located in the heart of Paris’ most iconic 8th arrondissement, housed in a building steeped in history, the new La Clef Champs-Elysées Paris residence offers discerning travellers extraordinary experiences with a sense of home.
The entrance to La Clef Champs-Élysées Paris is on Rue de Bassano, a few minutes from many of the French capital’s most sought-after attractions, including the Arc de Triomphe, Eiffel Tower, Grand Palais, Théâtre du Rond-Point and the famous Avenue des Champs-Elysées. The property is also a stone’s throw from Avenue Montaigne and Avenue Georges V with their luxury boutiques and fashion houses – the epitome of French glamour. The elegance of this finely preserved building stands out in its cornices, corbels, gilding, period molding and delicately chiseled ironwork.
Mr Lee Ngor Houai, Ascott’s Managing Director for Europe, said: “Ascott created The Crest Collection to distinguish an exclusive collection of serviced residences that offer a memorable experience through building heritage, architecture and location. Ascott has a strong track record of product development and design expertise, from preserving heritage buildings to converting offices to serviced residences. At the new La Clef Champs-Élysées Paris, which took us two years to conserve and enhance, our guests will feel at home and be able to experience the Parisian life, culture and history in a unique luxury residence.”
