Emulating luxury and history throughout the later half of the 19th century, the Hotel Edouard 7 continues this rich tradition that the Prince of Wales has set. Named after the black sheep of Queen Victoria’s children, Albert Edward (ruling under the name of Edward VII during his rein of the British Monarchy) fell in love with Paris, even making this central Paris hotel his place of residence while in the city. With a defying persona of sophistication and an eye for fashion, Edward commanded the streets of Paris with great seduction. Hotel Edouard 7 portrays this persona of audacity, seduction, character, and theatricality throughout the hotel today.

Stepping into the hotel you are instantly transported into a modern twist on the Victorian Era.
