stay Pershing Hall is an elegant 19th-century mansion that has been radically altered by one of France's most celebrated modern designers, Andrée Putnam, and turned into one of Paris's most stylish hotels. The house was built in 1890 by the Comte de Paris, heir to the French Throne, for his Mistress. During World War I it was turned into the Paris headquarters of American Gen. John Pershing, hence its name. Today though, don't expect any trappings of Monarchy. This ultra-modern hotel is decorated in a warm but restrained style with a lavish use of quarried stone, tile, mosaics, and hardwoods. The hotel's partcular feature is the vertical garden featuring a luscious wall of more than 360 varieties of exotic plants from Southeast Asia that thrive in the microclimate of the courtyard.
