A Parisian Hotel that Begins with a Love Story – La Maison Favart
The endearing love story of Justine Favart and her adoring husband resonate throughout La Maison Favart today, as the hotel pays homage to their love story. A famous and most beautiful actress dating to the early 1800s, made the Opera Comique a magical place, along with her beloved husband and playwright, who scripted roles with her in mind.
Love is a universal theme in many ways, if one judges the near perfect guest reviews on TripAdvisor. To achieve its almost top 10 rating from approximately 2,000 hotels in Paris, this privately owned hotel is certainly exceptional for its class and doing many things right.
The personality of La Maison Favart is reflected in the history and enchantment of the Opera Comique. To visit Maison Favart is to enter a special romantic world. An escape on an imaginary journey into the enchanting world of theater. Location By some good fortune the property is located on a calm and quiet side street, in the busy and very central 2ieme arrondissement. The Opera Comique is across the street and the world famous Opera Garnier, home to the Phantom of the Opera, a short 5 minute walk away. Also close by are the famous department stores Galleries Lafayette and le Printemps, a guarantee of some wonderful Parisian shopping.
This boutique feels a lot like home, with a quaint, inviting breakfast room that also serves as a reading room and lounge. Return to the hotel after a long day of sightseeing and the lounge awaits, fully stocked for a self service glass of wine or cup of fresh brewed coffee and homemade gourmet French pastry. Rooms There is a charming and friendly attention to detail as every guest room evokes the imagination that takes the guests on a far away journey. Decor is refined and at the same tme coquettish, with all modern conveniences and amenities. Far from cookie cutter, each room, with its unique decor, takes on its own personality and playfulness, similar to an act in a play.
Room numbers are replaced by names that give the property a certain character. Rooms such as Mademoiselle Chantilly, the stage name of Justine Favart, offers soft pastel tones and elegant charm, much like the actress herself. The Costume Room, pays tribute to the authentic costumes of the time. The room named Trip to China, shows off the striking, vivid shades of red from the famous production. Other rooms that play with the imagination include the Dance Lesson and the Opera Roofs. A Daily Massage for Daily Wellness
