Hotels in Paris

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.

The five-room Hôtel Particulier Montmartre, on a leafy cobblestoned passageway, is a pint-size hideaway with outsize design. The three-story Directoire façade is pleasingly geometrical—lead urns march up the steps to the front door, which is framed by iron lanterns on brackets.

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,

This Place de la Concorde landmark, built at the direction of King Louis XV in 1758, hasn’t lost its ornate air.

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.

Le Relais St.-Honoré has an enviable location along Paris’ most famed fashion street and near Le Louvre and Les Tuileries in the 1ère arrondisement.

Folded into a stolid 19th-century building on a hectic Haussmann thoroughfare, the 51-room “resort” offers itself up as a hipper-than-thou, early-21st-century alternative to the Parisian palace hotel.
