Located in the prestigious area of the Presqu'île peninsula, close to the Opera and the Theatre des Célestins, this legendary hotel, built in 1894 and under the aegis of Carlton since 1925, stands proudly in its completely renovated Haussmannian silhouette. Nicknamed the 'little Lyonnais palace' since the 19th century, it has managed to protect its incomparable splendour throughout its 122-year history. Its wrought-iron balconies, its resplendent dome, and its elegant rotundas demonstrate French excellence.
Its new look masterfully combines the legacy of its flamboyant past and the modernity of its more contemporary furniture. Its favourite colour, Carlton Red, is always in the spotlight, flirting with drapes, plush carpets, and tapestries, and is found in subtle combinations throughout. The intimacy of the rooms, which are each named after an actor, reveal the delicacy of the decor in luxurious comfort.
Added to the pleasure of gazing are the pleasures of the senses when you discover the room service menu developed by Michelin-starred chef Georges Blanc.
The hotel bar provides a wealth of different options, to be savoured in moderation of course, including the signature cocktail, Rouge Carlton, in a cosy lounge atmosphere under the glow of pearl chandeliers.
