The 54-room FAUCHON LHotel Paris, a member of The Leading Hotels of the World, was the first property for the renowned French food purveyor as they, like other luxury brands, entered the hotel industry. At a time when many hotels are dialing back the culinary component of a hotel experience, one of the distinguishing elements of a FAUCHON Hotel is to leverage the brands 130-year-old legacy as innovators of fine Parisian gastronomy to create a domain of service excellence, decadent gourmet cuisine including the brands iconic Gourmet Bar, luxurious five-star hospitality, and tailor-made local experiences.
The FAUCHON Hospitality brands Unique Selling Proposition is easily defined as GLAM: GOURMET (the most creative Parisian patisserie adhering to the French culinary tradition); LOCATION (at the heart of the urban life of the city); ARTISTS (artisans and attentions with bespoke artwork and activities curated specifically for the hotel; and MESDAMES (a hotel always in tune with women featuring sophisticated lighting, Dyson hairdryers, properly sized bathrobes, Carita amenities, and more).
