After competing renovations in 2017, Hôtel Le Louis Versailles Château, MGallery by Sofitel is now a 4-star hotel, offering travellers a chance to immerse themselves in the splendour of the Court of Versailles, as the hotel’s interior design was inspired by the neighbouring Palace of Versailles.
The redesign of the hotel was entrusted to the Russian architectural firm, Sundukovy Sisters, who decided to showcase the contrasting eras through décor that blends contemporary elegance with classical refinement. It reflects the harmony that exists between architect and nature, a powerful theme running through the hotel décor, echoing the gardens of the Château.
From the lights illuminating the façade at night to the impressive central glass roof, the majestic chandelier in the hotel bar and mirrored sconces recalls the name ‘Sun King’. In the 152 rooms (including seven suites), the past interacts with the present to create a plush and restful ambience, decorated with antique mirrors, conical lamps, classical LED chandeliers, carpets inspired by herringbone parquet flooring and elegant white marble bathrooms.
In the hotel’s bar-restaurant, L’Alcôve, guests and locals are immersed in the pure essence of Versailles through numerous references of the city and its Palace, such as the shades of dark green evoking the Gardens of Versailles, the stylised wallpaper reminiscent of the nearby gardens’ Orangerie and the statue of the Lion, the emblem of royal power. Here, the Head Chef gives top billing to seasonal produce and offers classic dishes, once again reinterpreted in the most contemporary way.
With Hôtel Le Louis Versailles Château, MGallery is expanding its collection of boutique hotels, which already includes 90 locations throughout the world. The brand also has 30 projects currently under development which, over the coming months, will include the MGallery Doha in Qatar, the MGallery Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, the MGallery Livorno in Italy and the MGallery Istanbul in Turkey.
