Hotel Café Royal, London enjoys an unrivalled setting, where the elegance of Mayfair, energy of Soho and sophistication of St. James combine. It's where history, culture, business and the stage are just steps away. That's one reason why, for 150 years, people who make a difference have made their way through these doors. For Oscar Wilde and Muhammad Ali, Winston Churchill and David Bowie Café Royal has always been the vibrant living room of London, the place to convene, converse and celebrate.
When the Boucicaut family opened the first modern department store, they changed how Parisians, and then the world, do their shopping. Once they had transformed retail commerce, their decision to innovate hoteliery was almost an afterthought. Their store was such a runaway success, that their many suppliers, bringing luxuries from afar, needed a comfortable place to spend the night. The board of 'Le Bon Marché' decided to open a modern, palace-inspired, luxury hotel in Paris, directly across from their famous store. Following a complete renovation and restoration, the Lutetia will re-open in late 2017 as a founding member of The Set hotels.
