Designer bedrooms

Manor House Style
English Country Living in the Heart of Paris

Just a few steps from the Place de L'Etoile sits the Hôtel de Vigny, a sanctum of relaxed elegance and English country house charm. Antiques and lush fabrics create a warm, welcoming mood, which begins just inside the front door, in the library and cozy salon with its beautiful inlaid fireplace.

The hotel is a showcase for two high-profile designers. Nina Campbell is responsible for the 37 individually decorated bedrooms and suites, and Adam Tihany crafted the look in Le Baretto Restaurant and Bar. The restaurant serves traditional French brasserie-style cuisine and makes a pleasant spot for evening cocktails.

Among the hotel's amenities are soundproofed and air-conditioned rooms, 24-hour room service and concierge, direct phone lines, modem connections and more.
