When her husband, former President Adolphe Thiers, died, Élise Thiers built this townhouse for penniless students to be able to finish their studies. It then became a private club.
The Saint James now opens its doors to a clientele seeking calm and elegance. For dinner, gourmets will revel in the cuisine of Michelin-starred chef Jean-Luc Rocha, former chef at Château Cordeillan-Bages and Best Craftsman of France, who took the reins of the Saint James kitchen in September 2016. Delicious brunches can be enjoyed in the park as soon as the sun greets the flowerbeds. A Guerlain spa can also be found at basement-level.
Member of the Relais & Châteaux, the Saint James Hotel offers a prestigious experience spiced up by Bambi Sloan's touches of fantasy. The designer transformed the interiors into a trendy hotel, with ultra-private suites in the two pavilions of the courtyard, and large rooms in the main building overlooking the gardens.
