The storied Hôtel de Crillon (a Rosewood Hotel) unveils its reimagined Le Poète suite on Monday September 3 – an exhibition-cum-suite. Located on the top floor of the palace – originally commissioned by Louis XV and built on the Place de la Concorde in 1758 – the space (from €5,500 to €7,000 per night), curated by gallerist Emmanuel Perrotin and featuring sculptures, paintings and photographs, is one of the hotel’s sumptuous Ateliers d’Artistes created by noted interior designer Chahan Minassian for the Crillon’s relaunch in 2017, following a four-year renovation.
