Opened in 1927, this hotel has had many gifted intellectuals and artists grace its corridors, from Charles Lindbergh, who stayed here after completing his legendary flight across the Atlantic, to Jean Cocteau, the acclaimed French author of Les Enfants Terribles. For its interior, architects masterfully combined Belle Époque, Beaux Arts and Art Deco elements, creating the style of Années Folles (Roaring Twenties). Today, its main hall still retains many features from the past, such as its Art Deco lifts and furniture, grand pillars, as well as elaborate marble, wood and brass carvings. Crowning the hotel is also a unique glass roof cupola that allows for natural light during the day and welcomes the dazzling lights of the city by night.
