Next week I’ll be in Paris, with Alessandro and Giacomo and a group of 40 chinese designers… One of the visit that I’ve suggested is The Citizen Hotel on the Canal Saint Martin.

The Hotel has twelve rooms and the building has been completely renovated from top to bottom. The accommodations includes top of the line beds, flat screen television, air conditioning, sound buffering and complimentary in-room services of WiFi, filtered water…
The Citizen is the first Parisian hotel to offer an iPad for clients at no cost to use in every room.  The iPad is a “green” aspect of the hotel, because it eliminates the need for paper in creating a welcome guide, noting services available in your room and selecting mini bar menu items.  Billing will also be handled through the iPad.

In addition, Le Citizen features the work of some Creative Growth artists, including Dan Miller, Dwight Mackintosh,  Donald Mitchell,  William Scott. Creative Growth Art Center is an art center in Oakland, CA, and serves adult artists with developmental, mental and physical disabilities, providing a stimulating environment for artistic instruction, gallery promotion and personal expression. Artwork fostered in this environment is included in prominent collections and museums worldwide.
