Discover a unique Second Empire hotel in the first arrondissement of Paris.
Created by art lovers and patrons, the Regina opened in time for the 1900 Universal Exhibition and is still managed by the Bavarez family, which founded it.
History of Hotel Regina
When Léonard Taubert created the Hotel Regina, he took great pains to gather the period's greatest artists and cabinetmakers to give his life's work the glorious setting it deserved. The Hotel Majestic followed the Regina in 1907.Mr. Taubert continued his dazzling career with the 1925 opening of the Raphael, a hotel devoted to a VIP clientele where the number of guest rooms was kept low in order to provide the cozy, home-like atmosphere so dear to its founder. In 2010 the expanded, redesigned, updated Hotel Majestic reopened as the Villa Hotel Majestic.
The granddaughter and great-granddaughter of Mr. Tauber's partner, Constant Baverez, now run the family business. Françoise Baverez carried on the tradition her grandfather started and handed the reins over to her daughter, Véronique Valcke, CEO of the Hotel Regina public limited company.
The saga of the Baverez family, which still owns these three jewels in the crown of Paris hotels, continues.
On June 30, 2010 Françoise Bavarez, the third generation of the family that founded the prestigious Hotels Bavarez, announced the appointment of her daughter, Véronique Beauvais-Valcke, as CEO.
Véronique, who has been involved with the company for over 10 years, has already left her mark by giving the Villa Hotel Majestic a contemporary look based on a unique concept: a residence hotel, a hotel and a spa with a swimming pool under one roof.
Françoise has retired but still sits on the company's Board of Directors.
