Le Dokhan’s, A Tribute Portfolio Hotel in Paris is the perfect place to stay during Paris Fashion Week.
I visited Le Dokhan’s a Tribute Portfolio Hotel in October, during famous Paris Fashion Week and I couldn’t recommend this luxury hotel enough…
About Le Dokhan’s Boutique Hotel in Paris
The hotel itself is situated in my favorite area of Paris: the iconic 16eme arrondissement, located across the Seine from the Eiffel Tower in the southwest corner of Paris. This prestigious area is home to many foreign embassies and renowned museums, including the Fondation Louis Vuitton and the Palais de Tokyo which was one of the major hubs during this year’s SS21 Fashion Week. So it was an ideal location for Marzena, Bella and I, as the hotel was within walking distance from several of the main fashion week events we went to. It was so amazing as we were close to everything. Although we were not so lucky with the weather, Paris in the rain is dreamy and poetic in its own way. What’s more, the hotel was well stocked with big sturdy umbrellas at the entrance for hotel guests which was super practical.
This Parisian boutique hotel dates back to the beginning of the 20th century. Le Dokhan’s offers 45 chic guest rooms, including 4 suites, that are accessible by a famous Louis Vuitton elevator created from old Louis Vuitton trunks. The hotel is highlighted by authentic works of art by Matisse and Picasso and the delicate scent of their custom-made fragrance.
It is a truly elegant hotel reminiscent of Belle Époque that is part of the Marriott Bonvoy. Indeed every element of the hotel is thoughtfully considered and utterly original including the parquet floors and wainscoting from a 17th-century château. Each of their guest rooms is individually decorated by the famous French interior decorator Frédéric Méchiche in a neoclassical style.
About Our Room: The Eiffel Tower Suite
The Eiffel suite we stayed in had the most breathtaking view of the iconic Parisian landmark. Equipped with a walk-in closet to accommodate all our Paris Fashion Week outfits and a jacuzzi bath to relax in after a hectic day filled with fashion shows and presentations.
This double room was ideal for Marzena, Bella, and I during fashion week as it had two full double beds, a Nespresso coffee machine and plenty of storage space.
The room details were all carefully considered, even the coffee table books including one from Veuve Cliquot, were on brand. Another amazing aspect of our room was that it had so many full-length mirrors which were great as we were three girls that needed to change a fair few times between the fashion shows. What I also loved about our room was the large marble bathroom that had a wonderful skylight window which was perfect for doing makeup. Stocked with fluffy bathrobes, hotel slippers, and premium Carita amenities.
The first champagne bar in Paris
A truly unique part of Le Dokhan’s a Tribute Portfolio Hotel was their champagne bar. In fact, Le Dokhan, is the first champagne bar in Paris, where Sommelier Matthias Breton created the city’s largest champagne menu with 240 choices including well-known names including Dom Pérignon and Moët-Hennessy as well as family estates little-known to the general public.
They also offer daily champagne-tasting events in the evenings, which we had the pleasure of discovering on our first evening of Paris Fashion Week. It was such an elegant and glamorous setting with candle lighting dancing around the room. It was the perfect way to start our evening. The hotel concierge kindly made a restaurant reservation for us that was just a stone’s throw away from the hotel which was super considerate and convenient.
What is more, the champagne bar transforms into the hotel breakfast room in the morning. Breakfast a la carte is served daily from 7.00 am until 10.30 am (and 11.00 am on weekends).
Breakfast with an unforgettable view of Paris
The room had beautiful views of the Parisian skyline, punctuated by the Eiffel Tower. So on our last day in Paris, we started the morning in style and enjoyed breakfast in bed whilst looking at the beautiful view of the Eiffel Tower from our hotel room. We had lots of delicious coffee, poached eggs, and fresh orange juice and the staff was so attentive about our food preferences providing us with gluten-free options and milk alternatives as well. I must say the hotel staff all went above and beyond in terms of hospitality and made sure we were comfortable and well tended to.
I love how central the hotel is and the staff was so helpful, kind, and professional. If you’re planning your next stay in Paris, then definitely try to get one of the rooms that face the Eiffel Tower. You won’t ever want to wake up any other way…
