The Hotel de Crillon in Paris, France was recently rennovated. The estate boasts an impressive history dating back to Marie Antoinette, who used to visit for piano lessons. The name comes from the Crillon family who owned the home before it was turned into a hotel. It opened to the public in the early 1900s which explains its previous ornate 18th century style. The new owner of the hotel wanted to keep its history intact, but bring the hotel into the modern era. Renovations included adding central air conditioning, raising the ceilings, and breaking apart the large lobby into several smaller spaces. They’ve also added a luxury restaurant as well as an underground pool with a glass ceiling.
