The Scene:

Originally built in 1896, this palace is the former residence of French imperial Prince Roland Bonaparte. Since 2009, the most historic areas of the former Palais Iéna are listed with the French institution Monuments Historiques, an initiative undertaken by the Shangri-La group. Today, the iconic building once again welcomes Parisians and world travelers within its walls, 114 years after the prince first opened the doors of his residential palace to Parisian society.

The rediscovered history of the building and its cultural significance as the home of one of France’s most notable aristocratic families is at the core of this flagship hotel.

It all began in May 1891, when Prince Roland Bonaparte bought nearly 3,000 square metres (33,000 square feet) of grounds on avenue d’Iéna in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, which today remains the city’s most elegant neighbourhood. Situated between the statue of George Washington and the Eiffel Tower, the site was selected by the prince for its breathtaking views over the Eiffel Tower and the Seine River.

The prince commissioned architect Ernest Janty, renowned for his reconstruction work of the Louvre and Tuileries palaces for Napoleon III, to design an elegant home and reception areas in order to receive notable guests. Throughout its four years of construction between 1892 & 1896, the building’s design and construction caught the attention of Parisians for its blend of 17th and 19th century architectural, simply known as "eclectic style." The palace’s façade is inspired by the Louis XIV style, with intricate masonry of stone from L’Oise. Sculptors Steiner and Houguenade, who also rose to fame for their craftsmanship on the Louvre and the Tuileries Palaces, were commissioned to carve the façade’s "eclectic style," featuring the family’s coat of arms, lion heads and antlers.

On the 17th of December 2010 the group has opened Shangri-La Hotel, Paris, representing its first property in Europe, a flagship of intimate scale and local historic significance. Inspired by the legendary land featured in James Hilton’s novel Lost Horizon published in 1933, the name Shangri-La encapsulates the serenity and hospitality for which the brand is renowned worldwide. Shangri-La group’s tradition of service excellence started with the opening of Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore in 1971 and is based on the core values of sincerity, humility, helpfulness, respect, courtesy and selflessness. With 101 rooms and suites, three restaurants, one Bar and four events and reception rooms, Shangri-La Hotel, Paris cultivates a warm and authentic ambience, drawing the best from two cultures: the Asian art of hospitality and the French art of living.
