SO/Paris Hotel is Mixing the Best of Both Worlds

Discovering the best parts of Paris at new, cutting-edge, luxury hotel

So, you have plans to visit Paris. But where to stay? You could opt for your go-to hotel, however, if you try something new you might be pleasantly surprised by what you may find. Tucked away in the 4th arrondissement on a quiet street along the Seine is the home to a 1960s architectural masterpiece known as the luxury SO/Paris Hotel.

With its tall glass doors open to guests for only four months, the 50-meter-high property–managed and curated by the bespoke hotel group, Ennismore–is operating at full capacity with 5-star excellence right out of the gate.

Contrary to its concrete, minimalist exterior, the hotel boasts eye-catching details, rich in style and intricate in unique design, from the lobby’s floor-to-ceiling tulip column architecture to the staff uniform designed by Guillaume Henry, Artistic Director of Patou (which I secretly wanted to sport myself).

Though my stay was short, it was sweet in more ways than one. I was there for business,  but their emphasis on “good vibes” made it all pleasure.

Buzzworthy enough to possibly get a glimpse of celebrity guests such as Doja Cat and Dua Lipa for Paris Fashion Week, or industry shakers frequenting the properties’ rooftop club, bar, and restaurant, The Bonnie.  Yet, the energy is cozy enough for a solo traveler to grab a journal and enjoy an outrageous aperitif (highly suggest the “Gimmie Gimmie”) in the good company of their friendly staff, whilst swooning over one-of-a-kind panoramic views of the City of Love.

The guest rooms exude a similar aura to the hotel, draped in warm hues and rich cedar, complementing the breathtaking views of a Parisian sunset. Visitors can expect to have all of their needs met within their quarters: steamer, blow dryer, vanity, Bluetooth speaker, and generous closet space that won’t make you regret packing that extra pair of Prada slingbacks.

For the wellness folks, I recommend combatting jet lag at their in-house spa, Le Maison Codage, after breaking a sweat in the fitness center or a few laps in their indoor pool.

Seek all of the best parts of Paris during your stay. Walk along the Seine, and get lost in one of the world’s most magical cities with a temporary home base that is just as memorable.
