Paris is forever linked with literature. The city has been a refuge for writers — and lovers of their books. And now one hotel is translating the city's literary roots into a perk.
Le Pavillon des Lettres will bring books to guests’ rooms with a new type of room service.

The boutique hotel in Paris’s eighth arrondissement recently launched a literary room service. Upon check-in, guests fill out a questionnaire about their taste in books and tell the hotel what they’re looking to read. That night before bed, a staff member will come to the room with a book hand-selected for each guest.
Le Pavillon des Lettres’s commitment to books doesn’t stop there.
Each of the hotel’s 26 rooms is named after a famous writer. From A for Hans Christen Anderson to Z for Émile Zola, each author’s influence can be found in the decoration of the room. The shelves are lined with an assortment of books and famous quotes are splashed across the walls.
A French teacher can also come to hotel rooms and instruct guests on la littérature française.
And those who need motivation to read can put away their social media and read an estimated 200 more books per year.
