The hôtel particulier Alfred Sommier, now a magnificent luxury hotel

Built in 1860 in the Madeleine district, the townhouse of sugar industrialist Alfred Sommier has just been renovated and transformed into a luxury hotel by a descendant of the family, whilst retaining the spirit of a family residence.

Once through the entrance porch, you are transported into the atmosphere of a grand 19th-century townhouse with original architectural details that have been preserved and enhanced in a ‘revisited classic’ style. In each of the 80 bedrooms, modern artistic creations give timelessness to quintessential French elegance. The 20 suites are light and airy with high ceilings, parquet floors, fireplaces, marble, and period mouldings.

Close to the big department stores, the Alfred Sommier hotel provides a unique setting for a reception with 5 reception rooms (up to 163 people) spread over two levels, with daylight, suitable for any type of event. The three reception rooms on the garden side are interconnecting (up to 90 guests). The largest reception room, the Salon des Archives, can host up to 60 people in theatre layout.
