The hotel chain CitizenM threw a party Thursday night to celebrate the grand opening of its newest accommodation, located at the Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris. And what a blowout it was!
I arrived shortly after 7:00 p.m. Zoé greeted me in the lobby.
I thought that the only other guests would be bloggers — like me. However, I quickly realized that many other types had been invited, as most of the people there were dressed in business suits. Bloggers don’t wear business suits… at least not the ones I know!
I circulated to meet people and to gather information about the hotel. After all, that was the reason why I was there…to blog about CitizenM’s launch party. I met some businessmen (pictured above)…
I met Tom from Amsterdam.
I caught up with some fellow Paris bloggers (Lily Heise, Heather Stimmler-Hall, Daisy de Plume, and Kasia Dietz pictured above).
And I met Szjerdene and Mirelva, who were having a great time!
Then I took a tour of the hotel.
Adèle showed me one of the rooms, carefully explaining how everything inside could be controlled by a tablet computer.
I wandered about, exploring the special “theme” rooms that had been set up for the party. Four rooms were occupied by models, demonstrating how the rooms could be used.
I asked the models in the Romance Room how their evening might end up. The man replied, “We’ll see!”
After the tour of the rooms, I went to the front courtyard to get some food. A special thanks goes out to Lily Heise for helping me claim a crêpe from this guy!
Barista Adinda Calbo prepared one of the best cappuccinos that I have ever tasted. Thanks, Adinda!
I got a glass of bubbly from Idris.
Back inside the lobby, a DJ was pumping up the volume.
And the party went on until the wee hours of the morning.
A good time was had by all!
