Le Maxime ***, a former salt cellar…
Hotel Le Maxime is located on the Quai de la Marine (formerly Quai Bourbon) which start from Tournelle Bridge to Lebeuf Street.
The buildings along the wharf were built during the First Empire.
This large building served for many years as a salt warehouse, storing salt from the salt flats of the Franche-Comté. It was then bought by Mr. Maxime Fortuné who gave the Hotel its name.
Today, this 3-star hotel is owned by the group HEDS (Hotels, Elegance, Distinction and Simplicity) directed by Pascal and Marie-Jeanne LECLERC.
