An hotel-club away from prying eyes
At the heart of a private park from Paris 16th district, not far away from chic Victor Hugo Avenue, the Saint-James Paris is a charming mansion, Parisian monument that used to host the Thiers Foundation, important training center for rich and distinguished young people, standing out from the crowd with their spirit and knowledge. Today, the address hosts the Saint-James Paris, both private club and hotel with an half British, half Parisian atmosphere as well as a crazy chic spirit by trendy designer Bambi Sloan. Majestic fountain, huge hall full of masterpieces, corridors, subdued interior lighting and hot air-balloons everywhere (the place used to be a famous start point for balloons flights) : Saint-James Paris is a unique place where every corner has to be discovered.
All of the rooms and suites are really spacious, adorned with taste and fanciful touches in a Napoléon III style, enjoying bucolic views on the garden or the fountain. Both Pierre Lotti, the latest King of Scotland and Elizabeth from Austria, also known as Sissi, have a room named after them. For more space and intimacy, two private pavilions are ready to welcome the families. For relaxation, a sophisticated Guerlain Spa opens its arms with its treatment rooms, hammams and fitness center with a coach.
A sophisticated gastronomy
By day, Saint-James Paris club members and hotel clients enjoy a unique bar-library, full of woodwork, located in the former library of the Thiers Foundation, with nearly 12 000 books you can access from the spiral staircase. The bar menu offers a large selection of whiskies from different countries, including really rare Single Malt Scotch Whiskies and a large choice of Champagnes. The Chef barman also creates on-demand cocktails. By night, the gastronomic restaurant opens its doors to fine palates which taste buds are seduced by talented Michelin-starred Chef Jean-Luc Rocha, also "Meilleur Ouvrier de France", previously working with Chef Thierry Marx at Cordeillan-Bages. During summer, there's nothing like a drink, a cup of tea or a giant brunch on Saint-James Paris hidden terrace, haven of peace looking like a British garden with its giant hot air-balloon.
The restaurant is well-known to Cac 40 Bosses, heads of State and government, brilliant students, families and friends. The Saint-James Paris club membership gives free access for you and your guests, to all of the services proposed by the hotel but also to nearly 150 affiliate clubs worldwide as the famous Princeton Club in New York and Jockey Club in Hong Kong. Dinners, conferences and other manifestations are organized throughout the year.
