MARCH 4 2020 | NEW YORK, NY

citizenM, the pioneer of the affordable luxury philosophy, is coming to the Champs-Élysées – the most emblematic street in Paris – to give guests and locals a refreshing, alternative hospitality experience. The new hotel’s entrance is at 128 rue de la Boétie, only a few steps away from Avenue des Champs-Élysées. This will be the fourth citizenM hotel in Paris, following Paris Charles de Gaulle, La Defense and Gare de Lyon.

Affordable luxury means guests enjoy a prime Paris location without paying an exorbitant price. Guests will enjoy the very best of everything that matters: superfast free Wi-Fi, enormous beds topped with the finest European linens, jungle-like rain showers, and MoodPad tablets controlling the temperature, blinds, lighting and in-room entertainment. Technology is essential to the citizenM experience. On arrival, there are no queues to reception thanks to self check-in/out kiosks. Key in hand, a guest is on the way to the room in just one minute.

With the help of long-time collaborators and architects Concrete Amsterdam, an existing building is currently being refurbished into a 151-room tech-savvy citizenM hotel. On the second floor, the famous citizenM-style living room will be filled with art, Vitra furniture, and canteenM. The indoor canteenM bar/dining area expands onto an amazing outdoor terrace with bistro-style furniture and chic loungers. An intimate courtyard sheltered by a red Parisian-style awning is also available for guests to enjoy the weather all year round.

On the eighth floor, there will be two outdoor spaces: a front-facing terrace overlooking the iconic Champs-Élysées and the Eiffel Tower beyond, and an expansive hideout for unwinding while enjoying the lusciously green inner courtyard. Scheduled to open December 2020, citizenM Paris Avenue des Champs-Élysées welcomes all mobile citizens of the world.
