Hotel de Crillon Paris

The Hotel de Crillon in Paris has been around for more than a century, so it makes absolutely perfect sense for the owner, a Saudi prince, to shut it down for a couple years to make renovations to the landmark location. However, rather than an overhaul, the luxurious hotel in Paris will be making aesthetic fixes to preserve the site's original splendor.

PARIS — Since it opened to the public in 1909, the majestic Hôtel de Crillon has been an icon of French refinement. On Sunday, this iconic hotel, now owned by a senior Saudi prince, will close its doors for two years to undergo a major renovation intended to restore some of its former splendor.

The facelift will be directed by the Lebanese architect and designer, Aline d’Amman. Ms. d’Amman, whose agency, Culture in Architecture, has collaborated on various design and decoration projects in the Middle East, has hired three interior decorators based in Paris, Cyril Vergniol, Chahan Minassian and Tristan Auer.
