Madonna slept here. Or Churchill. That’s what you might be able to say if you bid on the beds being auctioned from Paris’s century-old Hôtel de Crillon, according to Bloomberg. Built as a palace in 1775 and converted into a hotel in 1906, the landmark building has seen everything from the creation of the League of Nations inside to the guillotining of King Louis XVI out front. Before closing its doors for a two-year restoration and renovation, the hotel is auctioning off everything from beds to Baccarat coffee cups, doormen’s uniforms to bottles of wine. You can even purchase the Pleyel grand piano from the Presidential Suite (and with past guests like Keith Richards and Lou Reed, it’s seen a thing or two). The auction starts tomorrow and will run for five days.
