Arts et Métiers: An Industrial-Cool Hotel in Paris, Redone in Terrazzo and Marble

July 11, 2018

Lately I’ve been getting twinges, calling me back to Paris: waking up to the sounds of street-sweepers, buying apricots and currants from open-air marchés, and seeking respite from the summer heat inside stone cathedrals. Here’s another reason to go: the Hotel National des Arts & Métiers, just opened last summer, and situated between Montorgueil and the Marais. Take a look.
