Hotels in Paris

Situated in the Seventh Arrondissement, the four-star Hôtel Bourgogne et Montana is next to the Place du Palais Bourbon and National Assembly building, as well as within blocks of the Musee d'Orsay and Rodin Museum.

All-white furnishings and glass accents by designer Axel Schoenert create an artsy, contemporary vibe at this Art Deco hotel on the edge of the Marais district. Billed as a “detox hotel,” the property emphasizes well-being and rejuvenation.

Built in 1923, this renowned Saint Germain des Près property next to Les Tuileries was remodeled in 1999. Over the years, it’s attracted a select clientele; guests have included painters Chagall, Buffet, and Miro.

The 159-room Hôtel Lotti sits between the Place Vendôme and the Tuileries Gardens in Paris. Each guest room and suite is outfitted with elegant furnishings and fabrics in shades of gold, brown, burgundy, and beige.

A private garden with towering potted trees and rare species of plants serves as the centerpiece for this five-star hotel in the central part of the city.

Fantastically located in the trendsetting Upper Marais, this former boulangerie in a 17th-century building has been redone by Christian Lacroix.

Directly across from the Neoclassical Opéra de Lille, the Hotel Carlton is centrally located within walking distance of the Euralille business district, Lille-Flandres railway station, and Grand Place de Lille (the city’s main square).

The Hôtel Montalembert is located in the Saint Germain des Prés area of Paris, near the Musée du Louvre and the Musée d’Orsay. Guest rooms and suites feature decidedly modern décor, with clean lines, warm, neutral tones, and modern furnishings.

An eclectic gem, the 2010 addition to the Shangri-La brand was originally built for Prince Roland Bonaparte, Napoleon’s grandnephew, who took up residence at the hôtel particulier from 1896 until his death in 1924.

Just steps from the Champs-Élysées and the Triangle d'Or, this 1889 townhome houses the Hospes Lancaster, opened in 1930 by famous hotelier Emile Wolf. In 1996 it was remodeled with Louis XV and Louis XVI furniture as well as antique lighting, gilded mirrors, and oil paintings.

A jewel box of a hotel, the 34-room Duc de Saint Simon resembles a private Parisian home, with a black-and-white marble hall, graceful staircase, and rooms decorated in richly colored traditional French fabrics like toile de Jouy.

At these prices, luxury is a given; it’s the sincerity sans arrogance—and the prime Champs-Élysées location—that nudges this 21st-century newcomer ahead of other Parisian five-stars.

Small and opulent (when Oscar Wilde died here in 1900, legend has it that his final words were, “I am dying beyond my means”), L’Hôtel sports 20 rooms, each with a different theme—leopard, Italian Baroque, Japanese pagoda—but all tastefully over-the-top.
