6 reasons to love the 6th floor

August 02, 2019

When reimagining the décor for the 6th floor of Le Meurice, interior design studio Lally & Berger decided to create something a little different. Here’s what to look out for during your stay here.

Classical curves

Located high up in the eaves, under our famous Mansard roof, the classically curved ceiling of our 6th floor rooms gives you a particularly Parisian feel from the moment you arrive. Large dormer windows let the light flood in and give way to the glorious view, some also have traditional shutters.

Wonderful wallpaper

As a distinctive standout feature, our designers teamed up with bespoke wallpaper experts De Gournay. Three exquisite designs were chosen for Le Meurice, all artfully illustrated by hand in a sumptuous chinoiserie style.

The choice is yours

The experts at De Gournay are known for their exceptional craftsmanship and their designs are said to create an aura of happiness and encourage relaxation. Take your pick from soft green chinoiserie or a bold dark blue backdrop, featuring colourful peacocks and ripe pomegranates for a real taste of the exotic.

Step out balcony

In 1811, elegant arcades were built lining the Rue de Rivoli facing the glorious Tuileries Garden. These grand buildings were designed by esteemed architects Charles Percier and Pierre Fontaine, and all feature beautiful wrought iron balconies. On the 6th floor these balconies are large enough to step out onto, giving you another wonderful way to relax and admire the city.

The finest view

All 29 of our newly-renovated rooms and suites enjoy a glorious view over the Tuileries Garden but it’s the 6th floor rooms and the spectacular penthouse Belle Etoile Suite that enjoy the finest view from the top of the hotel.

Peaceful Paris

Being high up these are the quietest rooms and suites in the hotel. From here you feel a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city but still connected via the incredible vista. As soon as you close the door these elegant rooms become your own private Parisian retreat.

Times are changing at Le Meurice and it’s all waiting for you to discover.

It’s time to take another look.
