I don t write review often but since it was kind of a special trip for us...
we booked a junior suite at the St James for our wedding night, and to be complete with the context we live abroad but are both Parisian
we only arrived after the party, late at night, hard to pay proper tribute to the scene when the bulky metallic doors open onto a dark garden with this huge hotel particulier subtly lit emerging from the night, the car turning around the fountain to reach the magnificent entrance, you feel like you are in a carouse arriving at a castle in another age
staff was of course perfect and helpfull
the starecase alone is woth a look with a subtle mix of true parisian classic and modern baroque quite an atmosphere
the room was huge and the staff had kindly left for us a bottle of champagne and draw a heart with rose petals on the oversized bed
(True luxury feels in the small details here it was the case, even the soaps are superb (lanvin vetiver))
one hidden gem is the restaurant. St James is a private club before being a hotel so instead of a busy / noisy restaurant you have access to a delicate private garden almost for yourself food is great but a tad pricey
