Writers' Parisian Hideaway
When Kathleen Beauchamp (better known as the famous English writer Katherine MANSFIELD) arrived in Paris on 30 January 1922 for radiation treatments, she took a room in the Victoria Palace Hotel Paris at the suggestion of her friend Anne Estelle Rice, the American painter. The hotel was rather costly and Mansfield, having separated from her husband, John Middleton Murry, was nearly broke, but she managed. At least her quarters here were considerably better than the barn near Fontainebleau in which she died almost exactly a year later.
During 1923-24 James JOYCE, the well known Irish writer, and his family took rooms in this hotel. Harriet Weaver had turned a large inheritance over to Joyce, which enabled him to afford nearly a year's worth of the Victoria Palace Hotel's luxury. And Joyce was not one to scrimp.

The Victoria Palace Hotel Paris
A very traditional idea of Parisian elegance
Since 1913, the elegant limestone façade of the Victoria Palace Hotel Paris has been a landmark at the heart of Paris's Left Bank. On a quiet street just off the bustling rue de Rennes, it embodies the enduring qualities of a neighbourhood renowned throughout the world for its mix of luxury, artistic vitality and sheer enjoyment of life.
Today more than ever, the Victoria Palace Hotel Paris strikes the perfect balance between traditional elegance and exceptional comfort. Its lavish, plush lounges are as warm and cosy as any in a grand country house, yet they are in the centre of one of the world's most cosmopolitan cities. The exquisite deluxe bedrooms, junior suites and suites are the epitome of French taste, with their Louis XVI décor, yet everything is designed for your comfort: marble bathrooms, well stocked minibars, upholstered settees where possible. Every modern amenity has been thought of: extra telephone outlets for modems and fax-machines, direct incoming telephone lines upon request; of course they are air-conditioned and sound-proofed. The hotel's function room can accommodate 20 people for a meeting, or 50 for a reception. It opens directly onto a private, grass-filled courtyard and its luminous, yellow stretched-silk walls and dazzling gilt stucco-work will make any event unforgettable. Last, but by no means least, the hotel even has its own, private parking garage for its guests.
As part of Paris's historic centre, the Left Bank is the ideal location for the business traveller. It is also perfect for the tourist and shopper. If you are interested in antiques and art, an easy walk to the CARRÉ RIVE GAUCHE including the Quai Voltaire and the Rue des Saints-Péres will provide you with some of the highest quality antiques and art available in Paris, or indeed in the world, as well as a wonderful view of the Louvre palace and museum just across the river Seine. Then on to nearby SAINT-GERMAIN-DES-PRÉS where you will discover the oldest standing church in Paris (completed in A.D. 1014), just across the street from two of Paris's most celebrated literary cafés, les Deux-Magots and Café de Flore. High fashion is also present of course with Céline in the Rue de Rennes, and the most recent arrivals on the block, Louis Vuitton, Emporio Armani and Cartier. Yves-Saint-Laurent-Rive-Gauche is just a stone's throw away, alongside Christian Lacroix on the Place Saint-Sulpice, over which towers the monumental church of the same name, with its chapel painted by Eugène Delacroix. When you've tired of shopping and touring, you can stroll through the beautiful LUXEMBURG GARDENS laid out in the 1600s for Queen Marie de Médicis, before returning to the comfort of the hotel. In the evening you can head towards MONTPARNASSE, which was once famous for its artists' colony (Modigliani, Soutine, etc.) as well as a popular haunt for such figures as Ernest Hemingway and Gertrude Stein. The famous brasseries they patronised are still there, La Coupole and Le Dôme, serving their patrons until late in the lively, Parisian night.
.... I wanted to thank-you for your part in making Judy's and my first
trip to Paris a most memorable one ! Judy was somewhat anxious about
vacationing in Paris because she had heard from other people about the
ill-treatment of Americans by Parisians .... you, the rest of the hotel
staff, and your fellow Parisians proved her fears very much
wrong!! Merci!! You made us feel so welcome right from our first hour in
your beautiful city .... the Victoria Palace Hotel Paris was a most important part of the
success of the trip ....
