Le Petit Palais

Since 1844, our grand ballroom, Le Petit Palais, has been a dazzling backdrop for historic events—from prestigious receptions hosted by heads of state to lavish balls that evolved into social landmarks. A comprehensive redesign a few years ago has beautifully enhanced this tradition. Crystal mirrors on the walls reflect the elegantly draped curtains and magnificent chandeliers, while the gallery and its accompanying staircases offer a dramatic setting for a grand entrance. When combined with Salon I and II, Le Petit Palais can host celebrations for up to 300 guests, making it a perfect venue for large-scale festivities.

Salon I & II

A few years ago, Salons I and II underwent a stunning transformation by the acclaimed architect Pierre-Yves Rochon. These spaces now feature high-quality furniture, refined decorative accents, warm natural colours, and exquisite art pieces, all blending to forge an atmosphere of cultivated exclusivity. Ideal for small to medium-sized meetings or private family gatherings, the flexibility of these rooms is enhanced by a sliding door that can combine both spaces, broadening the scope for various arrangements and styles.
