city's most hectic railway stations-is the historic eastern Paris
neighborhood that inspired Philippe Jouanneault when
designing the adjacent Courtyard by Marriott Gare de Lyon.
"A few steps away is the Rue Crémieux, with its colorful facades

the Viaduc, a former railway track has been transformed into a
Coulée verte, a magical green walk that stretches over one-and-ahalf kilometers."

as possible. The Parisian sky is also echoed in the subtle colors of
the custom-designed rugs.

built and assembled in Portugal and were then plugged into the
