Entwined with the history of the Marais and plunging into the domains of art, architecture, fashion, music, and design — a sense of buzz and intrigue resonates behind the properties iconic stained-glass windows.

By living by the standards of a fine hotel—excellence, flexibility, attention to detail, and genuine service—Sinner draws in artistic types, urban explorers, and individualistic wanderers who are interested in discovering a different idea of a luxury hotel with a new, disruptive take on what that means. Winding corridors with an almost sacred, quietly opulent atmosphere simply illuminated by the play of light through stained glass windows which decorate the walls absorb the glow of lanterns that lead each guest to their room.
