Hotels in Paris

Countless Parisian hotels, ranging from five-star international properties to family-owned boutiques, make choosing just one difficult. Your budget and your preferred location will help narrow down your options. On the Right Bank, foodies, for example, may want to consider Les Halles, dubbed by the French 19th-century novelist Emile Zola as "the belly of Paris" for its meat and vegetable markets. One of the best hotels in Paris is here—the Ritz-Carlton, on Place Vendôme. Lavish interiors, perfumed air (yes, really), and the Hemingway Bar (the best among Paris hotels), make for a lovely stay if you've got deep pockets. Exceptional architecture, meanwhile, characterizes Le Marais. Of the more affordable nearby options, we like the ivy-covered Le Fauconnier, just steps from the Seine, with its streamlined rooms and sun-soaked terrace. On the Left Bank, the Latin Quarter is known for its leafy, academic sensibility, while St-Germain-des-Prés was once a bohemian hub for great writers and philosophers such as Albert Camus. Here, the excellent service and colorful painted murals give the Hôtel de Nesle a delightful, cozy vibe.
