The trailblazing Dutch hotel group citizenM opened a new property within the bustling business district of Paris, La Défense. This innovative brand describes its hotels as offering affordable luxury, smart technology and clever design.
The hotel’s full glass façades illuminate and fill the interiors with light. The upbeat, funky, yet relaxing atmosphere form the essential vibe of the place. The vast first floor “living room”, where visitors check in, features high-quality furnishings from Vitra, as well as specially commissioned frescoes. Floor-to-ceiling windows lead out onto the large sun deck, where patrons can enjoy a drink at the Marina table or Pantagruel picnic with a view of the impressive Grande Arche. Soaking up some sun at this terrace is the perfect antidote to a full day of business meetings.
