1- Hotel George V Paris
The Paris Four Seasons hotel was originally established in 1928 to honor George V. Originally, the hotel bore a distinctly Art Deco aesthetic, though recent renovations favored a more modernist look. It is perhaps the most extravagant and opulent hotel in all of Paris, with the appearance and visage of a Palace, vast sprawled out hallways and rooms, and gastronomic food that simply doesn’t cease to delight the senses. It also features some of the most charming flower displays and arrangements made by the hotel’s Florist. It’s located amidst the golden triangle of Paris, snug between the Champs-Elysées and Alma-Marceau. This entire neighborhood is always buzzing with high art, culture, and life. The hotel is also much revered in the city because of its rich history and heritage. As already mentioned, it was created in an Art Deco style, however over the years they’ve been auctioned off to go for a a pared down look. Now one can only see echoes of its past, though sometimes that is enough. Even the simplest of the rooms are all luxurious. Some of the rooms feature heavy patterned wallpapers with densely patterned bedspreads, however most of the rooms are minimalist in aesthetic.
2- Hotel Ritz Paris
Perhaps one of the most convenient aspects of staying at the Hotel Ritz is the fact that it’s located close to eight different metro stations that can take you wherever you want in Paris. As such, you couldn’t find a hotel better connected than this. The only slight hiccup is that it comes with a pretty expensive price tag. The hotel has been designed in a luxurious 18th-century Parisian style, and is just walking distance from attractions such as Place Vendôme and the Palais Garnier. The rooms in this hotel are actually called apartments, which is just one of many efforts the hotel takes to make them feel more homely to the visitors. These rooms come in neutral tones and shades, though they have a spattering of gold embellishments. The Prestige Suites of the hotel all bear a distinct personality, as they overlook specific landmarks of Paris. You can even check yourself into the Suite Coco Chanel, which has been named after their most famous guest and is designed in the visage of her most popular designs. If you’re in the mood for a drink, you can go over to the Bar Hemingway, or you can grab a meal at L’Espadon. In fact, the hotel also offers a complementary cooking class in case you’re interested!
3- The Peninsula Paris
This is a typically extravagant and luxurious boutique five star hotel, made in a Parisian style but with modern amenities such as complementary WiFi, large screen LED TVs, etc. The suites are a pleasantly strange hybrid of traditional details rendered in a modernist style. The bathrooms feature marble flooring, with dark wooden cabinets and fixtures. If you’re into a bit of history, this is the hotel where the Paris Peace Accords were signed, thus putting an end to the Vietnam War. It is also quite well connected with a metro station close by, and sites such as Champs-Élysées and the Arc de Triomphe just walking distance away. To top it off, all guests can avail of up to three hours of complementary chauffeur service to take them around Paris. After a long and tedious day exploring the city, you can return to their charming restaurants — LiLi, or L’Oiseau Blanc. The former of these gives you a taste of lovely Cantonese dishes, whereas the other features traditional Parisian dishes along with a stunning view of the Eiffel Tower.
4- Hotel Le Bristol
This hotel was established back in 1925, and it thankfully prioritizes heritage and aesthetic over contemporary designs. It is also famous for having hosted such celebrities as Charlie Chaplin and Marilyn Monroe. It’s also the home to a rooftop swimming pool from which you can look over the entire city lit up at night. You can also go and get yourself a nice spa therapy if you’re stressed, and if you have children you can drop them off to play at the kid’s club. The five star hotel is built with a grand and luxurious limestone facade which overlooks the rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. The interiors of the hotel and the rooms feature a light pink aesthetic which imbues the boutique hotel with a vibrant aura. As such the general aura of the hotel is definitely feminine, and they even use upholstery in some rooms that is a blend of deep green and pink. In fact, Le Bristol is one of six hotels in all of Paris which has been afforded the status of ‘Palace’ which is a step above five star status. The crowning glory of this hotel is its 3 Michelin starred restaurant named Epicure, which mostly features french and Parisian dishes.
