BridgeStreet has introduced an innovative, new aparthotel experience in Paris called Mode Aparthotel. This unique concept combines the space and freedom of apartment living, together with exceptional 24/7 hospitality and facilities – alongside the advanced technology and comfort demanded by today's business traveler.
The Paris location is in the heart of the prestigious 16th arrondissement – long known as one of French high society's favored places of residence. Close to the Arc de Triumph and nestled in a quiet street off Avenue Victor Hugo, Mode Aparthotel comprises two restored 19th century, neo-renaissance buildings with a brand-new building adjacent to a tranquil courtyard to enjoy and relax. The interior spaces are classic and modern in harmony – with specially-commissioned artworks inspired by the city throughout the public spaces, studios and apartments.
The immediate area around Mode Arc de Triomphe boasts some of the capital's best boutiques, stores, restaurants, museums, galleries, international schools and places of learning. The property is also conveniently placed close to corporate headquarters of the some of the leading names in business, finance, industry and fashion, as well as numerous embassies, consulates and missions. Mode is minutes from the local Metro station, 15 minutes from Gare du Nord, and 35 minutes from Charles de Gaulle International Airport.
"Business travel today is catching up to the growing demands of a new generation of business traveller. New technology and duty of care must be considered at any great property – that's a given – but culture and authenticity matter and Mode embraces the very best of Paris. We're tremendously proud of creating this experience and excited to share it with travellers around the world," said BridgeStreet's Chief Operations Officer, Brian Proctor.
"To adapt and provide unique experiences demanded by modern, savvy travellers, we're continuing to target global hot spots, like Paris and Edinburgh, with retrofitted buildings using unique design aesthetics. It presents rare and unique building opportunities – perfect for travellers seeking those same experiences," said Steve Burns, BridgeStreet Managing Director of EMEA & APAC.
