The Phileas hotel pays tribute to Jules Verne
For a while, the district of Saint- lazare station had been the departure point for a number of travellers heading to London or New York. It’s to pay tribute to this spirit and to the hero Jules Verne that the Philease Hotel adopted such style including using wicker lamps, woodwork and travel trunks. Here, everything is inspired by the author of ‘around the world in 80 days’, between the industrial revolution and the great transatlantic voyages. After having taken the lift, designed to resemble a giant gondola you can access one of the 39 rooms that balance leather, wood and soft materials. A tantalizing atmosphere, which cultivates dreams created by Marine- Agnés Louboutin and Patrice Henry is a real success. B.D.
