Embark on a journey back to the chic Paris of the 1960s with me, as I recount my delightful experience at Hotel Norman.

The Norman Paris junior suite living room

Nestled near the pinnacle of the Champs-Elysées, this luxury boutique hotel, a sibling to esteemed properties like Saint James Paris and Relais Christine, welcomed me with open arms. Inspired by the iconic graphic art of mid-century American artist Norman Ives, the hotel is a captivating blend of retro charm and modern sophistication.

The Norman Paris – the restaurant lobby

From the moment I stepped into the lobby, I was enveloped in an atmosphere of understated elegance. Cool, muted tones juxtaposed with vibrant pops of color greeted me, setting the stage for a truly enchanting stay. Every corner of the hotel exuded a sense of artistic flair, with Norman Ives’ typographic prints adorning the walls and abstract patterns infusing the space with personality.

The Norman Paris – suite

My room was a haven of tranquility, echoing the jazzy ambiance of 1960s Paris. The attention to detail was impeccable, from the plush furnishings to the carefully curated minibar stocked with artisan treats and bespoke spirits. As I stepped out onto my private balcony, I was treated to sweeping views of the charming courtyard terrace below, with glimpses of the iconic Eiffel Tower punctuating the skyline.

The Norman Paris restaurant

Dining at Restaurant Thiou was a culinary journey like no other. Led by the renowned Parisian chef Thiou, the menu seamlessly blended French and Thai flavors, tantalising my taste buds with each exquisite dish. And when I wasn’t indulging in gastronomic delights, I found myself wandering the streets of the 8th arrondissement, indulging in a spot of retail therapy amidst the world’s most prestigious brands.

But perhaps the most memorable aspect of my stay was the sense of belonging I felt at Hotel Norman. Far more than just a place to rest my head, it was a sanctuary where past and present converged, offering a glimpse into the timeless allure of Parisian glamour. As I bid farewell to this enchanting oasis, I knew that the memories I had made would stay with me long after I had returned home.
