Pavillon des Lettres launches new Literary Room Service

Books worth getting into bed for 


With 26 rooms and suites each dedicated to a different letter of the alphabet – and in turn a great writer from European literary history – Pavillon des Lettres is Paris’ original literary hotel. This winter, the hotel is introducing a new literary room service menu, with books full on inspiring words and images, inviting readers to dream through the perfect night’s sleep – and giving guests the perfect excuse to stay ensconced the next morning.

Tucked just behind the Rue Faubourg St Honoré, Pavillon des Lettres sits close to some of Paris’ most fashionable streets, so learn the secrets of Parisian style with How to be Parisian or Parisian Chic: A Style Guide. Flick through Paris Avant-Après to see how the city was transformed by Haussmann or go further afield, to dive in to some of the world’s most spectacular swimming pools with Poolside with Slim Aarons – a collection of stunning photographs that will leave guests planning their next trip.

There will be tomes about French fashion greats – think Chanel, Lagerfeld, Helmu Newton and more – and global style icons – Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot and Carine Roitfeld Or go classic to be immersed in the words of some of the writers who lend their names to the bedroom doors of the hotel – Virginia Woolf’s Mrs Dalloway, Gustave Flaubert’s Madame Bovary, Voltaire’s Candide and many more… 

From A for Anderson (Hans Christian) through to Z for Zola (Emile) – via B for Baudelaire, H for Hugo, S for Shakespeare and more – each room at Pavillon des Lettres holds its writer integral to the design, with lines from poetry, prose and novels inscribed on the walls. This is the perfect homage to those writers this winter
