Grand Salon


A spirit of style, rhythm and whimsy keeps the plush, platinum and champagne-hued Grand Salon humming throughout the day and evening. Glowing inside and out, a corrugated crystal-like curtain reveals cascading chandeliers framing lush lounge-style seating clad in rich velvets and Jouffre silk. Here in the hotel’s fashionable humming heart, craft cocktails in cut-crystal tumblers and inspired dining from Two Michelin-starred Culinary Director Gabriel Kreuther complement social exchanges and graceful gatherings.

Guests will enjoy an inspired all-day dining menu, our signature Afternoon Tea service which now also features a special Petit Prince Children’s Tea, and light dinner fare. In the evening, a nightly display of glamorous Parisian-style pomp and circumstance includes specialty cocktails, premier wines and spirits, and the largest champagne list in the country.

In between, the Grand Salon plays host to light lunches served in sumptuous seating nooks and high-backed banquettes that flank the salon’s runway-style center aisle; afternoon high tea taken from an exquisite selection of Mariage Frères boutique blends; and a Champagne presentation that is a nightly display of Parisian-style pomp and circumstance.

Afterwards, guests can pair cocktails with Alsatian-inspired dishes from Culinary Director Gabriel Kreuther. Paris-based designers Gilles & Boissier have lavished attention on every surface and detail of the soaring, 22-foot-high salon, from its pleated Jouffre silk-covered walls, to its parquet floors and plush upholstered seating. At the room's very center is the pièce de résistance  a 64-arm Baccarat chandelier.

Afternoon Tea

Our signature afternoon tea program provides guests with a transporting experience through a celebration of historical personalities that have associations with the time-honored brand. Boutique blends are paired with chef-selected canapés, house-made scones and petit fours.
