IMG_7212 2Hyatt Hotels announced the reopening of the Hôtel du Louvre in Paris as part of its Unbound Collection, following a major renovation project.

The 164-key hotel opened its doors to guests in 1855 as the city’s first grand hotel. The guest rooms have been restored to their original Parisian splendor with high ceilings, elegant moldings, and marble floors. Some rooms offer balconies with views of the Avenue de l’Opéra and the Musée du Louvre.

Famous guests at the Hôtel du Louvre, which is near the Louvre, the Comédie-Française, the Palais Garnier, and Palais Royal, include Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Victor Hugo, and Sigmund Freud, who wrote, in one of the hotel’s suites, the book Leonardo da Vinci: A Memory of His Childhood.

Guests can dine in the Brasserie du Louvre, which serves traditional French cuisine in accordance with Paul Bocuse’s recipes. The restaurant is part of Bocuse’s Restaurants et Brasseries de Lyon group. L’Officine du Louvre Bar, located underneath the hotel’s glass roof, offers herbal-based cocktails that the hotel says are intended to celebrate Napoléon III’s love of botany.

The Hôtel du Louvre offers meeting rooms that range from 204 to 1,474 square feet (19 to 137 square meters) as well as a 24-hour fitness center.

Hyatt introduced the Unbound Collection in 2016. It is a group of higher-end properties with a “distinct character” and individual identity that are retained while participating in Hyatt’s guest loyalty program and reservations network.
