Fouquet's Barriere Hotel: Glamorous Generation of the Present

Wednesday, 23 June 2010

Fouquets Barriere HotelMost reputed hotels in Paris can boast with the rich history and traditions as old as the century ago. And this is quite simple since these hotels are located in the center of the capital of France and when you are in the center and look around, you will not go by the buildings that are the historical, cultural and architectural monuments. Actually, the area is totally occupied here. There are exceptions though and among the old and reputed hotels there appeared a young hotel which became one of the most popular establishments of the city for the shortest period. And this hotel is Fouquet's Barriere, which became one of the biggest hotels opened in XXI century.

Fouquet's Barriere quickly and quite unceremoniously had the position among the most prestigious hotels in Paris since it is located in № 46 building at the cross of the Champs Elysee and the street of St. Georg V. It is simple to assume that this is the core of the capital and in two minutes walk you find here the famous cabaret «Lido», five minute walk to the Triumphal Arch and ten minutes walk to the Eiffel Tower. Thus, Fouquet's Barriere made some clear attempts to make room by the extra class hotels located nearby such as Georg V. this is obvious, that the powerful financial resources of the Lucien Barriere Hotels & Casinos group played its role. The group possesses a network of restaurants, casinos and hotels throughout France.

However, the new hotel won the hearts of tourists very quickly. And the demand refers the natives of France as well since the hotel can boast with the successful location, though the neighborhood to the Eiffel Tower is not surprising and astonishing at present. The hotel is winning among the others since some works were done by Jacques Garcia, the well-known designers and decorator who has lots of glorified hotels in his portfolio who got the fame thanks to the interior design he created, including hotels in France. The master caught the wishes of the privileged public and added the glamorous appearance to the new hotel, rich and luxury interior of which attracted both tourists and native citizens. The luxury ancient materials used for decoration of the premises including white marble, specially aged golden tissue, black wood, silk, gabardine and velvet are perfectly matched with the fresh designer ideas which are trendy. Therefore, Fouquet's Barriere is the hotel not for everyone. The place is not visited by customary tourists who arrive to Paris to have a quick trip along the city and take pictures by the Eiffel Tower, to stand in the line to the Louvre for many long hours for the sake of several seconds of standing by Giaconda and disappear in the unknown direction. This is special and the cost of the most expensive presidential suite totals 8500 Euros per day. The point is that this huge amount of money allows possessing 535 square meters of luxury premises, though this is the other story.

Surely, all the other rooms out of 107 rooms of the hotel (40 of them are luxury suites) are not that expensive though even so, the prices are too high for the budget of an average European with the average income. The room design somehow matches the tendencies that are not able to be matched at all when the ponderous style of the luxury splendor of the first half of the century before last and the freedom-loving design that does not recognize the rules and restrictions of the atmosphere of the voluntary oriented Paris of students of the 60s.

The average set for every single room at the Fouquet's Barriere offers a TV set with the flat screen, video and audio equipment, four telephones (one stationary and three radio telephones), all the required computer and office equipment (including scanning machine and printer), mini bar and the separate cloakroom. Besides, the rooms where the shower and bathroom are separated, there are TV sets in there also.

As any reputed hotels with the perfect reputation of the high class, the hotel Fouquet's Barriere offers the highest number of the comfortable rooms, and moreover, it possesses the perfectly developed infrastructure.

The infrastructure of the hotel includes two restaurants, two bars, a business center and the spa complex equipped by the latest technologies, which apart from standard water procedures in the swimming pool or under the specific water flows; the guests are offered the various relaxing, restoring, rejuvenating and cosmetic procedures. And in this regards, the Fouquet's Barriere has the advantage to the French hotels of the old school, which are willing to propose the spectrum of the perfect hotel service but they are too short of possibilities.
