Pershing Hall, just steps from luxury boutiques and trendy clubs in the Champs Elysées /Avenue Montaigne neighborhood, is a 26-room hotel with a chic design and a chic clientele to match. Behind its discreet 18 century townhouse façade is a magificent vertical garden composed of more than 300 plant species from the Philippines, the Himalayas and the Amazon…and the rest all spirals out from there on.

The vertical garden, towering over 30 meters high, is the back wall of a magnificent atrium. Ambience and light change throughout the day.

The bar, located on the 2nd floor, is well-known amongst locals for its hip decor and top notch DJs.

Batida Maracuja/Morango (€19) – cachaça, green lemon, passionfruit/strawberries.

On the other side of the building is the residential area of Pershing Hall.

Here’s a standard room, which is quite small (around 25 sqm) and not particularly impressive in its design, but it does come with iPod dock, 24 hours room service, free wi-fi, and 2 complementary bottles of champagne pop.

From the window, a view of Parisian street scene.

Bathroom.

Welcome notes with cookies.

Breakfast at Pershing Hall can be served in the room or in the restaurant at any time. We had to wake up at 7am for breakfast on this particular day, and it was a pleasant surprise to find the atrium well-lit as if it were bright outside already.

Included in the room price are two breakfast choices: Continental Breakfast and Pershing Breakfast. Both come with viennoiseries (croissants, pain au chocolat etc.), seasonal jams, organic yogurt, fresh fruit juice, and coffee, tea, or hot chocolate, the only difference is that the Pershing Breakfast has an additional eggs course.

Pershing Hall is not for everyone. If you read the reviews on Tripadvisor, you will see complaints about room size, service, noise from the bar, etc. It is true that the room is not particularly spacious, and that music from the bar can be heard in the room (though this wasn’t a problem for us as we didn’t go to bed till 2AM after the bar closed), but service was surprisingly friendly. If you want to play safe, go for the big names like Four Seasons or Plaza Athénée, but if you are up for something stylishly different, Pershing Hall might be just what you are after.
