Tales of Old in the Marais

Tales of Old in the MaraisVisitors delight in the many period treasures affixed throughout the building, from refined furnishing fabrics and old mirrors to chandeliers and framed documents hanging atop vintage-style wallpaper. Each item is meant to honor playwright Pierre-Augustin Caron de Beaumarchais, after whom the hotel is named. He penned his renowned The Marriage of Figaro, which inspired Mozart’s comic opera, just up the street from the hotel.
