The Pierre-Yves Rochon firm was founded in Paris in 1979 with the intention to create interior design solutions for luxury hospitality and residential environments. Today PYR is globally recognised and respected for focusing on every aspect of guest experience. Enhanced with seamless integration of each property’s location, culture and history. The design philosophy centres on creating a refined, comfortable atmosphere. Celebrating elegance and warmth while providing a timeless backdrop for an ever-changing modern culture. To see evidence of this, take a look inside the recently refurbished Sofitel London St James.
Step into a Pierre-Yves Rochon world of refined comfort, where timeless French elegance embraces bold British tradition. All rooms have tall windows that let in natural light, ensuring spacious and bright rooms and suites; with the charm of a listed building. The hotel offers a choice of shapes and sizes. Bold colours or more neutral palettes.
Standout: The Opera Suite
Imagine a vast private apartment with views of London’s most elegant buildings and the statues of Waterloo Place. Now picture yourself there relaxing in the living room, enjoying gourmet meals in the chic dining room and luxuriating in the sumptuous bathroom. With designer furnishings, plush fabrics and stunning PYR décor.
Wild Honey St James, the hotel’s newest restaurant, combines classic French techniques with the finest seasonal British produce from Chef Anthony Demetre. The café restaurant has been designed into distinctive areas, including the Gallery and the Private Dining Room.
Adjacent to the restaurant, the cosy St James Bar is a cocktail destination in the heart of St James. The hotel is also home to The Rose Lounge, an ideal place to unwind and enjoy a traditional afternoon tea.
