From historic hotels once catering to literary greats, luxurious five-star Palaces with ornate restaurants to match, and modern marvels with rooftop views of the Eiffel Tower, Paris offers travelers a wide range of accommodations. Sleep in neighborhoods in the heart of the city’s action or cozy up in something tucked away in one of the city's residential neighborhoods.
Hotels are one of the highlights of staying in Paris—and the city is undergoing a serious renaissance. It seems as if almost every month, the city is welcoming a starchitect-designed hotel, landmark-turned-boutique hotel, or renovation of one of the grand dames that have been sitting here for centuries. In Paris, hotels are a destination in themselves. Some have taken over old hôtels particuliers, private mansions that were the nobility’s version of a step down from a palace. You can splurge and go all-out with a Palace-rated hotel, one that takes five-star status to a new level, or post up in a newer spot where the views are just as much of a draw as the locally inspired décor. Traveling as a family? Some hotels have resort-worthy kids’ clubs or babysitting options. Fido in tow? Paris hotels know how to treat your fur baby with five-star amenities. Yes, doggy macarons are a thing.
