Hotel Balzac Reopens its Doors in Central Paris
10 September 2020
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
On the 10th of September, JJW Hotels & Resorts’ five-star Hotel Balzac reopened its doors to guests and diners for the first time since April. The short closure has allowed the hotel to adapt to new industry standards brought about by COVID-19, and prepare a safe, luxury environment to welcome its customers back to Paris.
“The safety of our guests and staff is the most important thing in the world. We have spent the past months planning for the future, and putting new initiatives in place that will allow luxury travellers to visit us with confidence,” said JJW France Operations Director, Ruben Paula, “We have gone above and beyond to ensure that our hotel adheres to the highest standards of cleanliness and safety possible; as well as continuing to offer the same exceptional levels of service and refinement our guests demand.”
Hotel Balzac is the first property to re-open for JJW in France, with the rest of the group’s 12 French hotels set to come back strong over the coming weeks and months as part of the hotelier’s COVID recovery plan.
Michelin Star Cuisine from Alberico Penati
For this re-opening, the hotel has just unveiled a new range of exclusive Paris offers and packages, including great rates for longer stays, along with complimentary parking, breakfasts and a host of VIP touches. It has also partnered with local restaurateur, the Michelin starred Alberico Penati, who will be providing an award-winning selection of his Italian cuisine for room-service, along with more formal dining at his Penati al Baretto restaurant.
“We’re very excited to be working with Chef Penati,” continued Paula, “His brand of renowned Italian cuisine is famous the world over for its intense flavour, historic themes and unique storytelling. Diners will experience a legendary Italian journey on a plate, and we can’t wait for them to taste it.”
Hotel Balzac is now taking bookings for September 2020 through to the end of 2021.
