OUR story

Le Royal Monceau was founded in 1928 by Pierre Bremond and André Junot. It reflected the unique spirit of 1930s Paris, and was somewhere writers, artists and intellectuals came to dine, embrace art and culture and engage in eclectic conversation. In 2008 the hotel began a period of complete renovation, reopening two years later to great and lasting acclaim, attracting a new generation of distinguished guests.
