Hotels in Paris

Palatial hotel with sexy interiors—a daring design departure from its more traditional neighbors—just off the Place Vendôme.

This petite city inn, which takes its name from the 19th-century literary critic Charles-Augustin Sainte-Beuve, is for traditionalists. In the David Hicks–designed lobby, overstuffed red-checked armchairs and deep couches flank a wood-burning fireplace.

Founded in 1907 by Englishman Lord Astor, the hotel underwent a British Regency renovation in 1996 (upholstered chairs with tall wooden legs, ornate nonworking fireplaces).

Located in St.-Germain-des-Prés, Relais Christine is a small boutique hotel just two blocks from the Seine. Built on the remains of a 13th-century abbey, the hotel incorporates original architectural elements such as centuries-old stone vaults that arch over the cavernous breakfast room.

With its garden courtyard, large fireplace in the lobby, and manor-like appointments, this converted 17th-century abbey feels like a country estate in the middle of the Left Bank.

The Westin Paris - Vendôme has hosted royalty from yesteryear (Empress Eugénie and her husband Napoleon III) and today (Monaco’s Princess Grace and the Dalai Lama), but this 440-room hotel is known for panoramic views of the city, including the Tuileries garden, Place de la Concorde, Seine River,

Opened in 2010 in the Montmarte neighborhood, this 340-square-foot apartment hotel from Bed & Style is a one-room studio furnished by interior designer Laurence Guarrisson.

The five-star Sofitel Le Faubourg is discreetly located next to the embassy and within walking distance of Musee d’Orsay and Palas Royal in the city's eighth arrondissment.

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.

For Paris first-timers, the English-speaking staff at this property goes out of its way to accommodate tourist clientele.

The hotel is set in an 18th-century town house on a quiet side street in the heart of the First Arrondissement.

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.

In an unbeatable location near the Champs-Élysées, this majestic 1928 white-stone hotel redefined elegance when it reopened its doors as a Four Seasons in 1997. Today, it’s tops with couture-clad jet-setters and bons vivants seeking a hushed city retreat with all the modern conveniences.
