Put on your acting hat; 5* Paris hotel Dupond-Smith is the new luxury location allowing you to let out your inner alias
One of the best things about going on holiday is that you can become whoever you want to be. And 5* Parisian hotel Dupond-Smith provides the perfect setting for you to embody the character you’ve always wanted to play.
Located within the heart of Paris’s Marais quarter lies the elite Dupond-Smith hotel: a mere hop, skip and a jump from the famed Île de la Cité that houses the city’s iconic Notre Dame Cathedral. Emulating the atmosphere of an exclusive members’ club, Dupond-Smith is the safe haven in which guests can experience “today’s greatest luxury”: unadulterated anonymity. Guests can feel as though they’re travelling completely incognito while they enjoy the hotel’s exquisite facilities.
Dupond-Smith is a sanctuary unto its own, a shelter from Paris’s bustling rues and avenues. Comprising five rooms and three suites — all named with the aliases of noted historical figures — the stunning and inconspicuous design of leading architects Anne Peyroux and Emmanuèle Thisy’s further enhances the 17th century mansion’s refined elegance. Although a mélange of eclectic styles, the hotel and its rooms are a seamless fusion of pieces and fittings from the world’s best artisans. Down to the last Conran armchair, the furnishings of Dupond-Smith encapsulate its essence as a place for evolving identities.
The rooms, Joseph L’Estrange and Lord R’Hoone, and the Saint Léger Léger suite, also offer guests six square metre-wide balconies overlooking the rooftops and hotel courtyard, with all of Dupond-Smith’s eight rooms fitted out with the usual mod cons you would expect from a 5* hotel, such as flat screen TVs with satellite access, free Wi-Fi, rain shower heads. While the mansion may be light on shared areas, it’s abundantly clear that Dupond-Smith’s accommodation possesses all the luxury you could ever desire.
