Sofitel Paris Arc de Triomphe Unveils Reno.

Sofitel Paris Arc de Triomphe, the brand’s flagship Paris hotel, has unveiled its renovation, designed by the Studio Putman in collaboration with architectural agency IGLOO. Designed to look like a Parisian pied-à-terre, the 124-key hotel preserved its Haussmanian façade. The contemporary interiors feature soft colors, sleek lines and an array of textures inspired by French designer Andree Putman and the City of Lights. Design elements of the public spaces include a fireplace in the lounge, which fluidly connects to the lobby and the gallery. The guestrooms offer soothing blue tones, contemporary furnishings and Parisian touches to oversized bathrooms. F&B offerings include L’Initial, a 64-seat restaurant from Head Chef Thomas Bruno, which serves modern French cuisine inspired by fresh and seasonal ingredients. The Sofitel Paris Arc de Triomphe's bar, the first that Jose Da Rosa from Epicerie Da Rosa designed for a Paris hotel, offers a deli-café concept with cuisine from France, Italy, Spain and Portugal. The tearoom, the first created by Da Rosa, features 26 varieties of tea and six French pastries from Parisian chefs such as Jean-Paul Hévin, Philippe Conticini, Angelina's tea room and Michael Boivin.

Google Hotel Finder Adds Indian OTAs - MediaNama

Google Hotel Finder service is now using data from a wide variety of Indian sites such as MakyMyTrip, Agoda, Yatra and to power it.

The service that was launched here in February is very straight forward — it asks user to type in the location apart from check-in and check-out dates. Once Google lists the results, the user can sort through them by star rating, user rating, price, location and amenities. The interface is very user friendly and should be able to drive some traffic to the websites that have partnered with Google on it. In an earlier interview with Medianama, Deep Kalra of MakeMyTrip had said that Google’s service was “pretty disruptive”. Google has also integrated Hotel Finder search results into the main search. For example if you type ‘hotel Delhi’ or ‘Book hotel Delhi’ a card with Hotel Finder results are displayed.


The interesting part is that this card carries a ‘sponsored’ tag on top right which means that you’ll have to scroll one whole page down to see non-search results.
