Le Méridien started in 1972 by Air France, a leader in design and innovation, with its first hotel, the 1,000 room Le Méridien Etoile in Paris. A new era began when Starwood Hotels & Resorts acquired Le Méridien in 2005. As an ever-evolving global capital, Pairs remains the inspiration for Le Méridien. Traditional European elements blended with contemporary design define Le Méridien’s ‘timeless chic ‘aesthetic. Complimented by curated cultural experiences centered around the arts and cuisine, the Le Méridien environment is perfectly choreographed to attract creative and curious minds. Le Méridien is known as much for its commitment to providing guests with a new way of seeing the individuality of each of its destinations as for meaningful experiences that inspire and stimulate creativity. Guests leave with a deep sense of community and affiliation. They discover more than just a destination, they discover a new perspective.
