In the heart of Paris, this chic hotel in the 20th Arrondissement (for the uninitiated, arrondissements are neighborhoods) is steeped in the culture of its surroundings. After a good night's sleep in one of the jewel box rooms, be sure to swing by the glass-roofed restaurant and bar. It's a short walk from many popular attractions, such as the Grands Boulevards and the fifth-largest park in Paris, the Parc des Buttes-Chaumont.

This sleek and modern hotel offers complimentary breakfast and an evening aperitivo with ample meats and cheeses, Italian antipasti, local beers, and small-batch wines. It's also close to the perennially hip banks of Canal Saint-Martin and Metro lines 4, 5, and 7 for easy city sightseeing. But the biggest selling point is probably its proximity to Gare de l'Est, one of the city's main high-speed train hubs and a gateway to other fun and accessible destinations in France and Europe.

Paris' Montmartre neighborhood was an epicenter of Belle Époque art; many famous painters such as Modigliani, Monet, and Toulouse-Lautrec lived and worked in studios along its cobblestoned streets. This hotel, which has existed since 1901, hosted plenty of painters from around the world who came to capture aspects of the neighborhood, like the Moulin Rouge, which is conveniently around the corner. In celebration of that pedigree, this fully modernized hotel now displays the work of contemporary artists.
