Raffles to Manage Historic Paris Resort

Raffles Hotels & Resorts has signed an agreement with Royal Monceau Pte. Ltd to manage Le Royal Monceau Hotel in Paris. The hotel will join Raffles Hotels & Resorts' collection of luxury properties in winter 2008, closing earlier that year for renovations.

When it reopens, the hotel will have 152 rooms and suites and a solar- energy heated swimming pool and five dining and bar options. Each level of the hotel will have a private lobby. The new Spa at Royal Monceau will also be improved. Visit [www.raffles.com]. (MA)
