Original Hotel luggage label, c.1930. 135 x 85 mm.
The Hotel opened in 1919 and was designed by Architect Joseph Larregain in Haussman style. It is very similar in design to the Plaza Athenee Hotel in Paris.
During the first World War the building was used as a military Hospital but it would soon attract a massive influx of wealthy foreign tourists.
During the second World War the French resistance used the Hotel to hide Jewish refugees leaving for Spain. The Hotel underwent major renovations during the 1960's.
