The newly launched spaces at Crowne Plaza® Paris – Republique have been designed in collaboration with leading global design studio Conran + Partners. The hotel maintained its nineteenth-century architectural features. But it also reconsidered its public spaces, approach to guest service, and food and drink offerings.

Plaza Workspace is a new take on the traditional hotel lobby space. It has inspiring surroundings where guests can feel comfortably work, enjoy a coffee, or socialize with friends.

Throughout Plaza Workspace there is access to power, wireless phone chargers integrated in the tables, and high-speed WiFi. This answers the trend in flexible work and life preferences, and people’s desire to work from anywhere.

The modern, design-led spaces are also suitable for solo work, team huddles, or meetings with friends. It also offers noise-reducing booths for private meetings.

The menu focuses on natural plant based ingredients with dishes designed to be restorative and inspirational. Power-up items, such as matcha and kombucha will be available at the start of the day. Then components like Jersey milk with valerian feature towards the end.
