Intrigues of the Past: Tales & Legends

"Once upon a time...in a land far, far away…" Like a classic fairytale, all Sofitel Legend Hotels have their own extraordinary stories to tell. We want to share them with you, so we've created the “Legendary Tour,” a daily visit to secret spots located in the far corners of the hotel during which our savvy expert will enlighten you with unique insights into the building’s historical significance. If you just can’t get enough local insight, enhance the experience with a City Tour, which offers privileged access to other storied landmarks.

Mangez Bien with French Gastronomy

The aroma of Beef Bourguignon. The texture of langoustines topped with caviar. The sight of a cream-filled millefeuille. Prepare to awaken all your senses at Sofitel Legend restaurants where world-class chefs use modern culinary concepts to craft one-of-a-kind gastronomic experiences. In fact, our Sofitel Legend restaurants are popular destination dining venues in their own right. Give in to irresistible aromas and flavors that abound from sweet afternoon-tea snacks to bubbly evening l'Apéritif, especially when paired with canapés and a cheese board. Bon appétit !

Raise a Glass at our Bars

Whether you take your tipple shaken, stirred or straight up, there’s a seat for you at a Sofitel Legend bar. These quintessential venues are soaked in history and tend to be as popular with locals as they are with guests. Chatting it up with a stranger is all part of the friendly, communal vibe that also exudes glamour, elegance—and maybe a little mystery, too. While we always offer a menu featuring classic and specialty drink suggestions, our master mixologists are maestros of crafting personalized cocktails suited to particular palates. Tell them what you’re in the mood for and they’ll whip up something bespoke before you can say, “Santé.”

At Your Service with Majordome

Back in the day, service was as much an art as it was a discipline, which is why Sofitel Legend hotels offer the Majordome butler service to its esteemed Suite guests. From the moment you check-in to the moment you say, “au revoir,” a personal butler will make sure every aspect of your stay is on-point. No task is too big or too small, whether it’s unpacking so you can rush to a midday meeting, shining your shoes for a night on the town or turning down your duvet so all you have to do is slip in and dream away - your wish is our command.

Wellness is the new wealth

These days, it’s all about connecting with one’s inner self - be it through meditation, yoga, running or other forms of wellbeing. Since we know being away from home can be disruptive to your routine, we’ve made wellness a central part of the Sofitel Legend experience. For those looking to unwind, Sofitel Legend collection of spas delivers rejuvenating spa treatments, cleansing saunas and refined French cosmetology; while Sofitel Fitness features a well-equipped, modern gym for guests who prefer a more active lifestyle. Plus, each Sofitel Legend also offers a custom yoga routine featuring poses inspired by Parisian landmarks.
