5-star Luxury boutique hotel – Affiliate with SLH
As the latest 5 star deluxe boutique hotel renovated in the heart of the Golden Triangle, we truly aim to become the symbol of boutique hotel luxury in our neighborhood for luxury travelers.
History & Story
When the hotel opened in 1920, travelling was reserved for the elite. Hotel Powers quickly became the favorite address for Englishspeaking clients, who stopped over in Paris before reaching the Riviera.
In keeping with the open-mindedness and joy of living of the 1920s, the Grand Powers still displays the unwavering love for the sobriety of Art Deco and the modernism of the 1940s and 50s inherited from this time. It pays homage to a time that dared to erase boundaries between the arts, where beauty and harmony merge and exceed all divides. At number 52 Rue François 1er, Hotel Grand Powers occupies a sumptuous corner building, emblematic of the splendor of the Haussmann style.
2018 – Fully renovated and orchestrated by the owner of the property, Alexandra Marang, with the creative association of the architects Arnaud Behzadi and Cathy Crinon.
