France, ton patrimoine fout le camp.

Je tombe sur un article racontant l’histoire de cet hôtel mythique, aujourd’hui vendu à la famille royale de Saoudienne.  Encore un bien Français qui passe aux mains d’un pays Arabe.  Ils rachètent tout ce que Paris et la France a de plus beau.  La France seulement?  Non, bien évidemment.  Je voulais dire le monde…

“The richly historic Crillon Hotel was built in 1775 facing the Place de a Concorde. During the Revolution it became a private home, Hotel de Courlande. The Crillon family owned it for many generations, and the last private owner was the Duke of Polignac who sold it to the Societe de Louvre, who acquired the adjoining buildings on rue Boissy-d’Anglas and in 1909 it was transformed into a hotel.

The hotel served as the historic meeting place for the signing of The League of Nations in 1919. It welcomed the British and American allies in WW I and during WW II it was occupied by the Germans. After the Liberation of Paris in 1944, General Eisenhower used it for armed forces till 1945. From 1982 to 1985 architect Jean-Loup Robert, who was in charge of the Opera Garnier renovation, and fashion designer Sonia Rykiel, executed a new renovation. Before the Crillon was sold to the Starwood Hotel Group in 2005 and again sold to a member of the Saudi Royal family in 2010, it was the last remaining five star hotel to be owned by a private French family, the Tattinger’s of the Champagne label. ” (Eye Prefer Paris)
