The original La Samaritaine building was unveiled in 1870, one of the first Paris department stores located right in the heart of the city, on the banks of the Seine, just a 6-minute walk from the Louvre Museum, a few steps to the Pont Neuf, a 10 minute walk to Sainte Chapelle on the Ile de la Cite, and about a 13 min. walk to Notre Dame. This will truly be an excellent location for visitors to Paris who want to be within an easy walking distance to key landmarks, museums, and even the Left Bank.
The Cheval Blanc La Samaritaine hotel will be very much a boutique property, with an Art Deco facade and just 72 residential-style rooms and suites. The new hotel will feature a gourmet restaurant, contemporary brasserie and a Givenchy Spa. There will also be adjacent offices and shops. Louis Vuitton is the better-known luxury brand, as not everyone is an oenophile or recognizes that Chateau Cheval Blanc is one of the top Saint Emilion wine producers, one of only a handful of Premier Grand Cru Classe wineries. But those in the know realize that Cheval Blanc’s luxury hotels are a fitting brand extension to the premium wines, as Louis Vuitton’s entry into experiential luxury.
