The 18th September, Dieter Müller, CEO and Founder of Motel One, Philippe Weyland, Managing Director and Founder of Motel One, and Matilde Conejo-Mir, the Hotel Manager, are opening the Motel One Paris-Porte Dorée’ hotel, first establishment in France of the German hotel chain. The opening will be held in presence of Catherine Baratti-Elbaz, Mayor of the 12th arrondissement of Paris, Olivier de la Roussière, President of VINCI Immobilier, and Dominique Ozanne, Deputy CEO of Covivio.
Part of the City of Paris hotel programme
Developed by VINCI Immobilier on behalf of Covivio (formerly known as Foncière des Régions), the Motel One Paris-Porte Dorée is part of the roll-out of the City of Paris hotel programme, which seeks to create 7,000 hotel rooms by 2020 and is focused on the most vibrant areas of the city.
Conceived by architectural firm MCBAD (Maria Colomer and Adrien Dumont), the Motel One Paris-Porte Dorée offers 255 rooms and an enormous, south-facing terrace that opens out onto a haven of greenery.
For its first hotel in Paris, Motel One invited French artists to produce Art Deco-style commissioned artwork. Artist Rachel Convers and street artist Madame Moustache have worked together to create a dreamlike world populated by exotic, half-human, half-animal creatures and permeated by nature.
Moreover, under the “1 building, 1 work of art” charter launched by the French Ministry of Culture, the garden of Motel One Paris-Porte Dorée is home to a sculpture in Carrara marble by the artist Victor Gingembre.
In line with the sustainable development ambitions of the various partners, the hotel has been BREEAM-rated “Very Good”.
A new brand to refresh Paris’ hotel offering
Motel One is a German network of design hotels offering a premium experience at affordable prices (79€/night more than 300 days per year). Motel One is already established in some of the most dynamic European cities and has a network of 65 hotels with more than 18,000 rooms. Conscious of the urban setting of its sites, the brand’s hotels are always located in lively, easily accessible areas within walking distance of numerous restaurants and shops.
This project is also a tangible expression of the strategic partnership initiated in February 2015 between Covivio, a major partner to hotel brands in their European expansion, and Motel One. The leading owner of hotels in Europe, Covivio now owns three Motel One hotels (in France and Germany) and aims to support its partner through its future European growth.
