THE STORY: Smack dab in the center of the Marais neighborhood in the former Filles-du-Calvaire convent, you’ll find the latest addition to the Madeho hotel group’s roster, Hôtel Sookie. Named after the song Sookie Sookie by jazz guitarist Grant Green, recorded in the 1970s, this place will take you on a trip back through time, with just the right amount of modernity thrown in: on the ground floor, you’ll find a coffee shop done up with marble and bamboo, where everything is carefully sourced, featuring a few collector pieces gleaned here and there, like ceramics by Jacques Pouchain. Upstairs, the bedrooms, from the most simple to the most spacious ones, are all dressed in organic tones (saffron, tobacco, pistachio, terra cotta)… and furnished with fifties wares by the interior decorator duo Desjeux Delaye (marble and blown glass light fixtures, turned wood headboards, khaki corduroy sofas). It’s guaranteed to be a jazzy time! Double rooms starting at €240 a night.
TOILETRIES: Terre de Mars soap, shampoo and body lotion.
BREAKFAST: À la carte, with freshly squeezed juice, coffee or tea, viennoiseries, bread with butter and jam, granola, fresh fruit, eggs Benedict… or you can opt for the brunch option for €26.
LITTLE LUXURY: Make the most of their collab with the Charme d’Orient spa, located a mere 450 meters from the hotel, and take some time to pamper yourself.
