Hotels in Paris

From the grotto-like breakfast room to the duplex junior-suites under mansard roofs, the 29-room Hôtel de la Bretonnerie is a sampler catalogue of French fashions.

The Hôtel des Saints-Pères is situated near the Le Bon Marché store and the Café de Flor in the Saint Germain des Prés district of Paris.

French style by way of L.A., with a dash of baroque detail, defines this 1906 building, where photos of Hollywood and fashion types are matched with purple velour chairs and Venetian glass chandeliers against black lacquered walls.

Ideal for a romantic getaway, this single-suite hotel contains five over-the-top rooms featuring everything from a private dance floor to a kitchenette stocked with cocktail ingredients.

This quiet, romantic retreat may be only a five-minute walk from the towering chain stores—and the crowds that fill them—on the Champs-Élysées, but it gives the impression of a world apart.

The Hôtel La Manufacture is located in Paris’s 13th Arrondissement next to the city’s famous Latin Quarter. A small, boutique hotel, the Hôtel La Manufacture offers 56 guest rooms equipped with wireless Internet access and flatscreen televisions.

Built in 1972 by Air France, Le Méridien Étoile is a 1,025-room business hotel near Porte Maillot, La Defense, and directly opposite Palais des Congrès. The Jetson's-like lobby by designer Jean-Philippe Nuel is a sensory experience, with its unique scent, sound, and use of neon light.

An institution since 1898, the lavish, opulent Ritz—near the Louvre museum and Tuileries gardens—has maintained its stature as one of Paris’s leading hotels despite a plethora of trendy newcomers.

This hip yet plush hangout between the Champs-Élysées and Eiffel Tower is as au courant as it was when it opened in 1911, thanks to a 2000 refurbishment courtesy of its new owner, the Sultan of Brunei.

The historic Hôtel Verneuil is housed in a 17th-century building in Paris’s Saint Germain des Prés district. Guests of the hotel enjoy convenient access to the Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay, and the area’s many shops and galleries.

Located on a quiet block in the Latin Quarter, this funky lodge’s ultramodern flair is obvious the instant you enter the lobby: 3-D bubbles float across a video screen, and the lobby bar lights change color throughout the day.

Housed in an 18th-century mansion on Place des Voges, Le Pavillon de la Reine hotel has a vine-covered façade and a shaded inner courtyard separated from the square by an iron gate.

The stylish Hôtel de Buci is located in the heart of the Latin Quarter in Paris, minutes from the Luxembourg Gardens and the Musée d’Orsay.
