The Presidential ‘Carré Rive Gauche’ Suite with Terrace

Hosting heads of state for more than a century, the Lutetia has learned a thing or two about a royal welcome. One lesson is that in addition to discretion and delight, our guests also seek inspiration. This is why the Presidential Suite is more than a luxurious hideaway. The largest set of rooms at the Lutetia is also a world-class art gallery, library and salon.

At every turn, sophisticated elegance meets creative surprise, beginning with the rooms themselves. Graceful layouts and design details are the handiwork of renowned architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte. From oak-lined study to sunlit dining room, sumptuous master bedroom to hand-carved bath, each room is paired with landmark contemporary furniture, some personally created by Wilmotte. With majestic windows on two sides, the sun-dappled interior is the perfect place to entertain, or escape the pressing crowd.

In addition, each room is crafted to frame breathtaking original art. In a unique collaboration with Carré Rive Gauche,the leading alliance of art dealers in Saint-Germain-des-Pres, the Presidential Suite is an ever-changing private museum.

So the towering figure outside the master bath is not be part of the security detail, but Venus herself, resplendent in Italian marble, a treasure of 17th century sculpture. In the living room, a first century Bodhisattva stands watch over two sapphire blue Kangxi vases. From ancient artifacts to contemporary oils, the works span millennia, creating an artistic residence of beautiful contrasts, and refreshing imagination.

When duty calls, and visits to the Left Bank's famous landmarks and galleries are cut short, the Presidential Suite is one in its own right. With spectacular views, bespoke rooms and furnishings, and artworks from the royal courts of Europe, this is in every sense, a suite fit for a king.
