5 Favorite Hotels in Paris
Paris is divided into 17 zones called arrondissements. It can be quite confusing figuring out where to stay in the city. Which areas will give you the best Parisian experience, which ones are within walking distance to some of the main attractions and the best restaurants. In addition, the Seine River divides Paris into 2 sections, the right bank and left bank.
Below are my 5 favorite hotels in the city. I love these properties for their locations, service, and the overall Parisian feel.
Grand Hotel du Palais Royal – in the 1st arrondissement
Beautifully tucked behind the romantic Palais Royal gardens, this contemporary boutique hotel is just steps from the Louvre and minutes from the Left Bank. It is ideally located to take advantage of Paris’ shops, restaurants, and galleries. Its top signature suites are beautifully designed and feature large balconies with sweeping city views.
Cheval Blanc – in the 1st arrondissement
This recently opened hotel is a retreat in the center of the city. It boasts a luxurious spa, indoor pool and four restaurants. The location can’t be beat on the right bank, steps away from the Louvre and the Marais district. This chic brand of hotels has existing properties in the Maldives, St. Tropez, and St. Barth’s, all with contemporary design.
La Réserve – in the 8th arrondissement (bordering the 1st)
Imagine feeling like you are walking into your elegant apartment building but being pampered in a luxurious hotel. La Reserve is in a quiet residential street in Paris. The modern rooms with chic décor are stunning. The hotel has a spa, indoor pool, wellness center with hammam, and Michelin starred restaurants.
Hotel Lutetia – in the 6th arrondissement
This is the city’s only palace hotel located on the left bank. The elegant modern décor, attention to detail, and impeccable service coupled with the nearby shopping and outdoor cafes make for a perfect stay in Paris. The hotel boasts a great bar atmosphere and live music on the weekends.
Relais Christine – in the 6th arrondissement
The boutique hotel is in a 17th century mansion in the heart of Paris. This beautifully decorated property has an amazing romantic atmosphere and within walking distance to many of the attractions such as Notre-Dame Cathedral, Musée d’Orsay, Luxembourg Gardens and the Louvre.
