About Hotel Regent's Garden
Located in the 17th Arrondissement between the Palais de Congres and the Arc de Triomphe you will discover the Hotel Regent's Garden, which is set within a former private mansion house dating from the 1800s that was presented to Dr Conneau by Emperor Napoleon III.
Dr Henri Francois Eugene Conneau was a family physician to the Bonaparte family, who became a good friend, companion, confidant and the personal doctor of Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte and hence the gift for his loyal and faithful service, which Dr Conneau continued until Napoleon III passed away.
Many decades later the mansion house became a small hotel, with modifications that had already been carried out and others to the facade etc, which continued throughout the 1900s with its different owners, until eventually it was acquired by the Astotel Hotel Group and turned into a boutique hotel, still retaining original features.
Now rated a 4 Star hotel in Paris, there is a courtyard set back from the road and in addition, there is a garden of around 400 metres squared that was designed by the gardener and landscape designer Xavier de Chirac, which is intimate with seating dotted in different areas, in a Japanese style even with water feature and always changing through the seasons with a wide variety of plants and flowers, all still in keeping with the former mansion house.
With Haussmann style architecture, you will still be able to discover original features that have been retained by Hotel Regent's Garden such as the breakfast room with its fireplace, mouldings, panelling and chandelier, although there are plenty of modern touches to create an unusual, but almost intimate hotel feeling.
