Hotels in Paris
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.
Housed inside a historic 17th-century building, the Hôtel Luxembourg Parc is located in Saint Germain des Prés, a Paris district full of art galleries and high-end shops.
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.
Paris hotels are famous for charging luxury-hotel rates for tiny rooms best described as shabby-genteel. Not so the Sofitel Paris La Defense, with a location in the La Defense business district (a 15-minute metro ride from the Louvre).
Decorated by Philippe Starck–trained Christophe Pillet, the new, 27-chambre Hotel Sezz is phonetically named after the 16th Arrondissement it calls home.
Located near one of Paris’s most upscale shopping districts in the 1st Arrondissement, the Hôtel Costes is a magnet for the fashion-forward, chic crowd.
