The hotel's 99 guest rooms and 39 suites are among the most spacious in the city.[1] Sybille de Margerie designed the guest rooms, suites, public spaces and The Spa, while designers Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku imagined the bar and restaurants. Architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte oversaw restoration of the building’s art deco façade.[2] The indoor garden was created by Wilmotte & Associés, in cooperation with landscape artists François Neveux and Bernard Rouyer.[2]

Mandarin Oriental, Paris has received much fanfare for its Thierry Marx-led restaurants. Just six months after opening, the signature restaurant "Sur Mesure by Thierry Marx" was awarded two stars in the 2012 Michelin Guide, the French guide to gourmet dining.[3] Chef Marx also presides over the casual restaurant Camelia as well as Bar 8 and the Cake Shop.
