Paris Hotel Banke signs with Autograph Collection
Hotel Banke 5* has joined Autograph Collection Hotels, Marriott International’s distinctive collection of passionately independent hotels.
The iconic property is the first in Paris and the fourth in France to join the unique portfolio of one-of-a-kind properties around the world that champion Autograph Collection Hotels’ values of vision, design and craft.
Located in the heart of the Parisian Opera district, Hotel Banke is moments from Galeries Lafayette, the city’s exclusive shopping centre, and less than a mile from the Louvre Museum.
The hotel occupies the former headquarters of Crédit Commercial de France originally designed by architects Paul Friesé and Cassien Bernard. The elegant, stately façade of the 20th century building dominates the corner of Rue La Fayette and Rue Pillet, harking back to the French Belle Époque period.
Hotel Banke has an elegant feel throughout its 91 guest rooms and suites, with original features seamlessly blending with contemporary design touches, such as statement modern furniture and rich soft furnishings.
Every room has been meticulously designed to create the ultimate tranquil escape from the bustling streets of Paris. The hotel is home to a bespoke collection of jewellery and art displayed throughout the hotel, sourced from various corners of the world; a nod to the building’s history as safe keeper of luxury items.
John Licence, VP Premium & Select Brands Europe at Marriott International, said: “We are delighted to expand our offering of one-of-a-kind hotels to Paris with Hotel Banke. With its unique heritage as a former bank headquarters, and stunning design, Hotel Banke perfectly embodies Autograph Collection Hotel’s independent spirit.”
The Josefin, Hotel Banke’s restaurant is the heart of the hotel, its cuisine is a subtle blend of signature French dishes with Indochinese touches, and as cocktail hour strikes, guests can head to the hotel’s bar LeBar.
