Le Meurice – a luxury hotel with tradition
Le Meurice, celebrating its 180th anniversary this year, chose the Japanese brands’s leading-edge technology for the restroom renovation.
Since 1835, Le Meurice, opposite the Tuileries Gardens, has been frequented by the who’s-who of Paris: members of high society have long shared this luxurious establishment with aristocrats and celebrated artists.
The staff of the hotel has many day-to-day responsibilities, but the most important entail ushering Le Meurice into another millennium, offering the finest services in a tranquil and hospitable setting, installing the most innovative technologies and meeting the least-expected needs of international customers.
This quest for improvement, appealing aesthetics and the ongoing effort to satisfy the demands of a ceaselessly evolving clientele have led the property to rethink its restroom areas, which are the most-visited spaces in the hotel, seeing traffic of 170,000 people a year.
Fabien Coubard, Project Manager at Le Meurice, deliberately chose TOTO based on past experience, for the renovation of the restroom in 2015: “(…) It is about more than quality: to my mind, a luxury establishment like ours should be a trailblazer and consideration must be given to how this space will evolve,” he explains.
Fabien Coubard chose the SG series range for its technological features and lightweight design, which harmonises perfectly with the desired ambiance.
