pershing hall

The pershinghall is situated at the heart of the golden triangle between the Champs Elysées, Avenue Montaigne and Avenue George V, a centre of business and international finance just a few steps from the luxury boutiques and the trendy clubs which have forged the reputation of one of the most beautiful avenues in Paris.

history of a famous townhouse.

Built by the Count of Paris at the end of the 18th century, this townhouse is still one of the most beautiful examples of Empire architecture from that period. Its facade, its large staircase, its room sizes and its elegant lines, only slightly altered over the decades, have helped the building to preserve the beauty and harmony of that period. When American troops were engaged in 1917, General John Pershing made it his general quarters before the building became the officers’ club of the American Legion in 1918.

A designer hotel renovated by the most talented contemporary architects.

Over the years, the pershinghall has undergone several changes. For its renovation in 2001, Andrée Putman redesigned the spaces with the grace for which she is known.

Behind a discreet facade, the various parts of the hotel radiate out from a patio that is open to the sky and contains a superb vertical garden that reaches up more than 30 metres. The garden includes more than 300 species of trees, shrubs and plants from the Philippines, the Himalayas and the Amazon... This remarkable creation is the work of Patrick Blanc, the famous botanist, who also created a wall garden for one of the facades of the Musée du Quai Branly in Paris. Hervé Versmersh recently created a light well in homage to James Turrell in the covered part of the restaurant. A layout plan on the walls consisting of mirrors and crushed velvet is delimited by amber light,giving the effect of drops of gold. This new feature helps to create harmony between the covered and open spaces. At the end of 2011 it was Olivia Putman's turn to add a touch of elegance with the Orgue de Lalique chandelier in theentrance stairway.

This world where various sources of light, colours and materials are combined, produces a refined atmosphere that is both muted and vibrant.

The pershinghall is more than a hotel, it is a place of encounters, meetings and events, simultaneously public and private.

The quiet and reserved atmosphere of the morning changes throughout the day to become glamorous and trendy at dinner and in the evening.
