Accor Opens the 52-room Mercure Paris Voltaire in the Bastille Quarter

December, 2010 - Accor has opened the brand new boutique Mercure Paris Voltaire hotel in the Bastille Quarter, with stylish baroque interiors and exceptional views of Montmartre and the Eiffel Tower. Two floors of ‘Privilege Rooms’ provide a real taste of luxury with super-sized beds, panoramic views and special touches such as espresso machines, plush bathrobes and quality bath lotions and body salts – perfect for those who enjoy the finer things in life but without breaking the bank.
With 52 beautifully appointed rooms, this brand new hotel immerses guests in a contemporary, baroque atmosphere - poetic, elegant and conducive to reverie. It is ideally located close to the city's most popular tourist attractions, including the beautiful Bastille and the fashionable Marais neighborhoods. From the moment they arrive, guests are enveloped in an intimate setting cut off from the bustle of the city, but with views that remind them immediately that they are in the one of the most elegant and timeless areas of Paris. The magnificent Marais district with its fashionable boutiques, lively restaurants and bars and exceptional pre-Revolution architecture are at the hotel’s doorstep, as is the famous Bastille area, putting you right in the heart of the city.

The new hotel is a sign of the Mercure brand’s evolution, proving that elegance and sophistication can be provided at an affordable price.  The Mercure was conceived in every detail by Michel Héberlé of Cabinet MH Production who says: "For this contemporary, baroque hotel with its warm, uncluttered style, the guiding thread is harmony. Plum-colored tones…and metallic effects provide a subtle counterpoint to the designer furniture. Majestic baroque sofas and metal consoles complete the decoration. The world globe chandeliers add a surprising note, sending out shafts of warm and cool tones. Large Ingres frescoes are distributed throughout the space and echoed in the bed heads in the rooms."
