‘JAZZ IT UP’ with Le Royal Monceau, Raffles Paris!
Monday, March 17, 2014
Paris, March 2014 - In tune with its position as a major cultural hub in the City of Lights, Le Royal Monceau, Raffles Paris is launching a new “JAZZ IT UP” package in its exclusive “Ray Charles” Lifestyle Suite, in which ‘The Genius’ resided for quite some time. A perfect option for music lovers or for a romantic getaway, this package offers a private jazz concert with a pianist on the suite’s grand Pleyel piano.
Its Mansard roof with a stunning view overlooking the City of Lights gives the Ray Charles Suite the quintessential ambience of a privileged Parisian apartment. Ever since the reopening of the hotel in 2010, it has been a favourite with celebrities in the music and entertainment industry.
This luxurious space (105 sqm / 1,130sqf) stands out amongst the city’s five-star suites, including a private entrance, sumptuous bedroom with a deluxe bed and walk-in closet, and a white marble bathroom equipped with an ample bathtub and shower. The open living room gives the ideal combination of culture and relaxation with its plush sofa and concealed large-screen television, hand-crafted furniture designed by Philippe Starck, Pleyel grand piano and an acoustic guitar.
The Ray Charles Suite also reveals unique Art Deco pieces from the hotel’s private collection and features a series of portraits of the artist by Arlette Kotchounian, a Paris-based photographer whose work captured behind-the-scenes and on-stage moments, often unpublished, of world-class musicians such as Ray Charles, Miles Davis or Stevie Wonder.

- Accommodation for two in the Lifestyle ‘Ray Charles’ Suite

LE ROYAL MONCEAU, RAFFLES PARIS reopened in 2010 as a next-generation Palace, after a dramatic and complete two-year transformation by designer Philippe Starck. The hotel has 149 luxurious rooms and suites and is just minutes from the Arc-de-Triomphe and the Champs-Elysées in Paris' 8th arrondissement. At Le Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris, art is omnipresent, with an exclusive service of Art Concierge, an Art Bookstore, a private Art Gallery, a 99-seat cinema theatre and an impressive private art collection. Food and drink are an art form here too – from the buzz of the Long Bar on the ground floor, to the two Michelin-star restaurants, ‘La Cuisine’ for gourmet French food and ‘Il Carpaccio’ for the best Italian in Paris. Not to be missed are the delicious pastries, macarons and chocolates by Pierre Hermé, considered by Vogue magazine as the ‘Picasso of pastry’.
