20 dreamy Paris hotels to book as France reopens to tourists in June

May 14, 2021

On-site amenities: Wi-Fi, indoor parking, fitness center, business center, spa, and bar Pros: This is the place to go if you're looking for crêpes, as there are plenty of crêperies in the area, notably Bretonne, Josselin, and the more casual but equally tasty Crêperie Génia. The hotel itself has everything you need to make you feel at home at a very affordable price and is steps from a Metro station. Cons: The neighborhood is not a favorite of locals and is filled with chain stores and restaurants; it can therefore lack that authenticity visitors fall in love with Paris over. A Paris hotel that opened just prior to COVID-19 shutting the world down, voco Paris Montparnasse is a quick ride by metro from Gaîté station to The Louvre or Paris Expo, and within walking distance of the not-to-be-missed, 17th-century Luxembourg Gardens. Nearby Montparnasse Tower has incredible city views, and you'll find eclectic boutiques on rue de Rennes, a nearby supermarket, as well as numerous bistros and handsome theatres near the hotel. The property's art deco-influenced style is modern, airy, fresh, and big on jewel-toned, topaz blues. voco also prides itself on being eco-friendly, an increasingly important trend in hotels in a country that is taking the climate crisis seriously, but can mean needing to request fresh linens if you're like me and go through them quickly. Cozy room types are spacious even despite their name, and Premium rooms are extra large in size for Paris. Several of the guest rooms overlook Montparnasse Cemetery and some rooms even have private terraces. The hotel serves a daily buffet breakfast, plus all-day snacks. You can enjoy barista brews in the 12 Grammes coffee shop during a stay, and sample Parisian beers and wines at the hotel bar, cozy lobby, or courtyard garden in the evening. COVID-19 procedures are available here . Hidden Hotel On-site amenities: A literal hidden terrace, on-site bar, free Wi-Fi, room service Pros: Standard rooms utilize natural and repurposed materials for a sustainable stay. Yoga amenities are uncommon in Paris and a perk for those seeking wellness. Plus, the central location is a prime base to explore the city and the price is usually right. Cons: Breakfast is good but not included in most rates, and many rooms differ in size and layout and can feel small. Hidden gems don't have to be expensive to be a standout. The aptly named Hidden Hotel is a prime example. This eco-conscious oasis with 35 rooms is a calming respite near the Arc de Triomphe with a captivating exterior wrapped in driftwood and ivy. Inside, the look leans heavily into earthy neutral hues with wood, stone, leather, and concrete. Rooms are spread across six floors and two buildings, starting with entry-level Intuition rooms, with Double beds surrounded by hanging gauzy fabrics for a cocoon-like feel, and luxe stone and marble open-plan bathrooms with organic toiletries. Other amenities include filtered water and free Wi-Fi. Upgraded Emotion rooms come with tubs or terraces, while Sensation and Exception suites include gigantic sunken marble or stand-alone stone bathtubs, cinema screens that drop down at the press of a button, and a yoga wall with adjustable straps and belts. Breakfast is served daily, though usually for an added fee, and a chic bar serves cocktails and light bites. While there isn't a gym, there is a yoga wall for guest use (similar to those found in suites), as well as a cigar-smoking lounge, and meeting rooms. COVID-19 procedures are available here . Hotel Providence On-site amenities: Cocktail bar, restaurant Pros: Incredible design details where even the smallest room is evocative. The up-and-coming neighborhood feels like you're always on the cusp of discovering something cool, and the small 18-room setting makes for a personable, intimate stay. Cons: Aside from the restaurant and bar, there are not many amenities to take advantage of, and prices surge in peak season. This jewel of a luxury boutique hotel is housed in a 19th-century townhouse in the alternative 10th Arrondissement, close to the upscale food market Marché Saint Martin and lovely Canal Saint-Martin. But what really shines is the exquisite decor in just 18 guest rooms. They are all lavishly appointed with statement designs such as vibrant palm-print wallpaper, regal walls, ornate gold fixtures, antique lamps, and sumptuous velvet in deep gem tones. The look is contemporary bohemian, with bespoke pieces and classic touches like crown molding, subway-tiled showers, and in-room bars where guests can shake up their own craft cocktail. The cheapest La Mini room is just 130 square feet but feels like sleeping inside Mary Poppin's magical carpet bag with a bedroom lined floor-to-ceiling in tapestry fabrics. Mid-tier La Classique and La Supérieure are a bit more minimal, while top-tier La Deluxe and La Suite offerings are impossibly cool with larger living spaces and wallpaper you'll covet. Amenities are limited, but the hotel's restaurant and bar serves three meals a day along with libations in an equally enticing setting. COVID-19 procedures are available here . Hotel Bastille Speria On-site amenities: Business center, Wi-Fi, free breakfast, tea and coffee Pros: Clean, comfortable, and the service is excellent. It's also the best possible location for LGBTQIA+ visitors. Cons: In certain parts of the hotel, the Wi-Fi can be slow or lose connection altogether. Positioned on a quiet corner of Rue de la Bastille across from a typical and charming Parisian cafe, Hotel Bastille Speria is ideal for anyone who wants to be immersed in a neighborhood with everything Paris has to offer. The bobo Marais is a delight for visitors who are interested in arts, culture, clubbing, or shopping. The 42 contemporary, design-centric guest rooms with well-stocked mini bars are a typical size for Paris but well thought out with lots of cupboards and built-ins to keep your belongings out of sight. It's a plus for travelers like myself who can't stand clutter in smaller spaces. Tiny Solo room types are ideal for one traveler, with larger Classic and Deluxe room types for couples. If you require more space as a family or want to travel as part of a group, you can also opt for connecting room types. As a nice perk, the hotel boasts an unlimited breakfast buffet that can be delivered to your room and an honesty bar that operates each afternoon and evening. The common spaces are a fantastic place to unwind, drink coffee, and meet fellow travelers to swap travel tips. COVID-19 procedures are available here . Hotel Le Walt Paris On-site amenities: On-site bar, free Wi-Fi, in-room electric kettles, room service Pros: The archetype of a fine Parisian stay, the hotel has a B&B feel that is ideal for first-time visitors, especially those who have always dreamed of being steps from the Eiffel Tower, or able to view it from their hotel window. Cons: The hotel is a Traveler's Choice on TripAdvisor — yes, that accolade is a good thing, but it also means it often books up quickly. The area around this hotel was historically popular with painters like Rodin and other artist types, and Hotel Le Walt Paris has embraced these roots. Art-adorned walls are found in guest rooms as well as the inviting hotel salon, each unique and reason enough to book a new room type each time you return. Contemporary furnishings in creams and other muted tones feel luxe but unfussy, and guest rooms enjoy larger-sized marble bathrooms with rainfall showerheads. They also have little touches, like Old World-style telephones to dial up the accommodating staff, not to mention games like Checkers for late-night play. A few rooms have desks should you need to get some work done. The best attribute, though, is its walkability through the Champ de Mars to Paris's major tourist attraction, the Eiffel Tower. Room types marked "with an Eiffel Tower View" possess just that — storybook-like windows with views over France's most famous monument. COVID-19 procedures are available here . Holiday Inn Paris – Notre Dame On-site amenities: Business center, cocktail lounge, children's activities, Wi-Fi, rooftop bar Pros: Kids under age 17 can stay for free when sharing their parents' room, and those who are 12 and younger eat for free at the on-site restaurant. The location is also excellent, as are the views from the rooftop lounge. Cons: The hotel is located in a busy area and rooms that face the street can be noisy. If you like to sleep in, secure a courtyard room instead. Settled near the historic Latin Quarter of Paris and close to the Sorbonne, this hotel is all about location. It's at most an eight-minute walk from the iconic Notre Dame, and many of Paris's most famous sights are also within walking distance, including the Louvre and Musée d'Orsay art museums, the striking Centre Pompidou, and the colorful Luxembourg Gardens. The guest rooms have modern wood paneling and cushy bedscapes, and some of the Executive Rooms offer views of the Eiffel Tower. To achieve your best rest possible after sightseeing, take advantage of an in-room Pillow Menu, with guest preferences whisked up to rooms rather quickly. In fact, the service at this hotel is known for being extremely attentive and fast, often an oxymoron in Paris. The hotel's highlight is a striking seasonal rooftop bar that is ideal for soaking in the iconic skyline and escaping the summer heat with a cold drink – whether that is a uniquely crafted cocktail or an off-the-menu concoction. Whatever your preference, one thing I appreciate about this place is the bartender's willingness to create a tasty bespoke beverage to your liking. COVID-19 procedures are available here . Courtyard by Marriott Paris Gare de Lyon Category: Budget Neighborhood: 12th Arrondissement, near the generally overlooked Bois de Vincennes, the city's largest park with an unexpected zoo Typical Starting/Peak Prices: $168/$286 Best for: Business travelers, tourists, and families On-site Amenities: Large meetings and events spaces, co-working spaces, fitness center, a parking garage with electric-car charging ports Pros: Some rooms are visible from a nearby office building, meaning privacy can be limited if you're resting in your room during working hours. Cons: You'll most certainly need to rely on public transportation to get around while staying here, as it is the least walkable option on this list. Adjacent to the banks of the River Seine and a quick 15-minute walk from Notre-Dame, the neighborhood surrounding Courtyard by Marriott Paris Gare de Lyon was, for a long time, considered less impressive and exciting. But in recent years, it has transitioned to a more up-and-coming destination with a mix of historic and contemporary architecture. Regardless of its neighborhood cachet, the hotel is close to a main train and transit hub, making it easy to travel to Lyon, Bordeaux, and Marseille, all of which can be reached in four hours or less. Exceptionally clean and well laid out, the hotel has a modern flair with space to stretch out in most cases. Business travelers will find themselves close to numerous co-working spaces and start-up incubators, but the true showoff of this Marriott property is its views. The 19-story tower possesses birds-eye, panoramic views over the city, and Landmark View rooms on higher floors are the ideal spot to take in all of Paris's emblematic sights, including Sacre Coeur and the Eiffel Tower. COVID-19 procedures are available here . Niepce Paris Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton On-site amenities: Bar, lounge, taxi services, babysitting, business center, gym Pros: Elevated Hilton offering with comfortable rooms and the chance to earn and redeem points. The gym is a nice added perk. Cons: Breakfast is not included in most standard rates. Hilton loyalists or those preferring a name brand stay should strongly consider this posh offering from Hilton's boutique line of hotels. Expected to reopen after COVID-19 closures on June 1, 2021, Niepce Paris Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton is a four-star property in the Montparnasse quarter in the 14th Arrondissement. The building spans a row of 19th-century townhouses, and the look was inspired by the work of French photographer Janine Niepce. The convenient location is just one block from the Pernety metro station. There are 52 rooms and suites with regal gold accents, marble bathrooms, flat-screen TVs, robes and slippers, and functional work desks with free Wi-Fi, which also makes it a good choice for business travelers. Standard Deluxe rooms are slightly small; for more space, opt for a larger Privilege room or a Junior Suite with a separate sitting area. Also on-site is a lounge and cafe for drinks and light bites, a full-service restaurant, and a good gym, which most similarly-appointed hotels in Paris lack. COVID-19 procedures are available here . Novotel Paris Les Halles On-site amenities: On-site restaurant and bar with a garden terrace, gym, business center, meeting rooms Pros: Large hotel with comfortable and affordable rooms with plenty of space for families and helpful perks for business travelers. Cons: While rooms are nicely decorated, they still feel more like a standard business hotel than other picks on this list. Novotel is a favorite among budget-minded and business travelers in Europe for its fashionable but reasonably-priced rooms, and this Paris outpost shines for similar reasons. The four-star Novotel Paris Les Halles is a short walk from Notre Dame and the Louvre, and houses 285 rooms that are mod and minimalist save for fun splashes of bright yellow or magenta. Every room comes with a work desk, flat-screen TV, Wi-Fi, air conditioning, safe, mini-bar. Standard rooms are spacious and include a sofa bed, making it a good choice for families. Upgraded rooms feature spa-like bathrooms, VIP services, wellness kits, and included soft drinks. A full restaurant and bar are inside a greenhouse-like atrium that spills out to a garden patio. A modern lobby lounge, full gym, and plenty of meeting space round out the amenities. COVID-19 procedures are available here . Hotel De Jobo Best for: Couples, groups of friends, families, business travelers, travelers with mobility challenges On-site amenities: Cocktail bar, tea room, express or continental breakfast included, room service, dry cleaning, Maison Fragonard products. You can also request an iPad loan, a mini printer, newspapers, and more. Pros: Eclectic decor feels transportive to another era and wholly unique. Design aficionados will certainly appreciate the space. Cons: The pro can also be a con as the look and feel won't be a fit for everyone who might not be comfortable with quite so much leopard print. Also, amenities are limited, with food only served at breakfast or room service. The least expensive, basic rooms are also small. Hotel De Jobo, which stands for Hotel de Joséphine Bonaparte, is named for and takes design cues from its namesake, Empress Joséphine Bonaparte, a trendsetter in her time. The whimsical four-star residence includes 24 guest rooms in a former 17th-century convent that, ironically, faces the Hôtel de Chavigny, which Napoleon transformed into a fire station. The entrance is hidden behind a courtyard with a greenhouse brimming with tropical plants, an homage to Joséphine's own prized garden. Inside, the look is delicate and feminine, with floral motifs and angelic accents. Guest rooms feel boudoir-inspired with leopard print custom carpets, ample roses, exposed beams, and walls dressed in elaborate prints. Even closets are adorned with lozenge-shaped mirrors and bathrooms are tiled with Marquina and Carrara marble. All rooms include Wi-Fi, air conditioning, luxury bedding, flat-screen TVs, coffee and tea, and services by request such as dry cleaning or babysitting. The tea room and cocktail bar area is furnished with a colorful confection of velvet and floral armchairs inspired by Joséphine's own pieces, though, food is only served at breakfast. COVID-19 procedures are available here . Hotel Des Grands Boulevards Best for: Couples, groups of friends On-site amenities: Two cocktail bars, including one on the roof, plus a terrace, courtyard, and on-site restaurant Pros: Rooms and decor feel royally inspired without dipping into stuffy or kitschy territory. Past guests raved about balcony views and the hotel's prime location. Cons: Rooms on lower floors near the courtyard and restaurant are likely to experience noise bleed. This 50-room darling feels decidedly feminine, which serves as a nice contrast to all the minimally mod and masculine hotels that increasingly dot the city. The intent isn't accidental, interior designer Dorothée Meilichzon took inspiration from an 18th-century French queen. Though it's no girlish getaway. The look is meticulous, made up of salmon rose hues with contrasts of soft turquoise and light driftwood. The four-star property bills itself as a lifestyle hotel, drawing a cosmopolitan crowd as well as hip locals who frequent the on-site restaurant and popular rooftop bar, a highlight of staying here. Rooms vary in size and many face an interior courtyard. They come with USB plugs, glass cupboards, bronze sconces, espresso machines with organic coffee, and plush beds enveloped in linen cotton and satin 300 thread count sheets. A chic mirror hides the TV and glam bathrooms stand out with marble walk-in showers or tubs. COVID-19 procedures are available here . Bel Ami Hotel On-site amenities: Full-service spa, business center, on-site bar and restaurant, daily breakfast buffet, gym, sauna Pros: This design and art-forward hotel stands out with individual character in an atmospheric part of the city. It's steps from a Laduree location, to boot. Cons: Prices can surge dramatically and easily double in peak seasons. The cheapest prices are in summer when the city is quite hot and some shops and locations close for the season. This five-star hotel in the 6th Arrondissement, near Saint-Germain-des-Prés, is a delight for contemporary design enthusiasts. Inside the lobby and common spaces, gleaming white marble contrasts with rich royal blue furnishings and decor is punctuated in color only by a few leafy green plants. Upstairs, guest rooms take a softer approach with an elegant neutral palette. Standard Deluxe rooms offer vantage points over Place Saint-Germain-des-Prés and its famous church, and some rooms include a sofa bed. Beds are plush and rooms are equipped with Nespresso coffee makers, robes, marble bathrooms, and start at a generous (especially for Europe) 270 square feet. Breakfast is also included, which adds strong value to the price. Housed in a 19th-century building that once functioned as a printing press, the hotel takes its name from the first copy of Guy de Maupassant's novel, Bel Ami, which was printed here, and some inspiration too. A well-stocked library is available for guests, and art fills many walls and public spaces. Like the lobby, the design-forward Bel Ami Bar appears midcentury modern blended with a futuristic feel. Weary travelers can recharge in the subterranean spa or sweat it out in the sauna or fitness center. COVID-19 procedures are available here . Hotel De Nell On-site amenities: Restaurant, lobby bar, wine cellar, spa, meeting rooms Pros: Discreetly elegant, Hotel De Nell is a respite from the busy city with well-appointed rooms and lovely terraces. Upgraded bathrooms are spa-like and some of the city's best dining and drinking spots are within a close walk. Cons: Pricing can vary dramatically. Breakfast is good, but premium choices cost extra, and the cheapest rooms are very small. Though it is a member of Design Hotels, part of Marriott Bonvoy, the hotel isn't known to honor many perks associated. Found in the charming 9th Arrondissement, staying at Hotel De Nell feels like retreating to your own Parisian apartment. The neighborhood is filled with local delights and feels more authentic and less touristy than other areas, while still close to major attractions. The lobby is diminutive, made up of a check-in desk, a small bar and seating area, and a restaurant. There are 33 rooms and suites that feature natural wood paneling, under-floor heating, and a mix of bright and dark colors. Rooms are well-sized and upgraded offerings feature imported Japanese soaking tubs that had to be lifted into rooms through the window to fit into the dramatically lit bathrooms. Rooms also open onto picturesque terraces, which make a comfortable perch to watch the hum of the city. Don't sleep in on the hotel's impressive breakfast buffet. COVID-19 procedures are available here . Hotel Edouard 7 On-site amenities: Fitness center, seasonal outdoor terrace, spa, Wi-Fi Pros: The central location is excellent and the rooms are elegant and romantic. The staff are personable and, befittingly, known for making you feel like a king (or queen). Cons: Gym goers will find the fitness center tight and limited in terms of options. A stone's throw from one of the world's most beautiful department stores, Galeries Lafayette , the Hotel Edouard 7 is a testament to Parisian elegance. The hotel has a hard to produce, je ne sais quoi French flair that marries classical charm with modern touches in a bold-yet-refined way through details like bright paint colors, traditional woodwork, and bold patterns and textures. Edouard 7 's strength is decidedly the size of the posh rooms, especially for this oft-cramped part of town, as well as the views overlooking the spellbindingly beautiful Opéra Garnier. Rooms also feature luxury bath amenities and nice-sized flat-screen TVs. Guests at the hotel can enjoy tea time daily and receive a generous helping of tapas if they order two drinks in the evening. The staff is notoriously accommodating, and the balcony views will leave no doubt about the fact that you are in Paris. COVID-19 procedures are available here . Hotel Grand Powers Typical starting/peak prices: $350/$477 Best for: Couples, families, groups of friends, guests traveling with pets (the hotel charges a pet fee of €25/day) On-site amenities: Spa, Turkish bath, sauna, hot tub, gym, on-site cafe Pros: High-end luxury delivered in a more intimate, boutique setting that feels more approachable than some of the city's mega hotels. Cons: In addition to expensive rates, some may find the lavish look a bit too traditional. A notable fixture of Paris' Golden Triangle since 1920, this five-star hotel is for those seeking classic luxury that is quintessentially French. From the stately facade to opulent rooms and common spaces, expect to find plenty of gold accents, marble finishes, and tasteful fabrics. And while the property might seem grandiose, 50 rooms and suites offer a soft, cozy ambiance, some with antique fireplaces. Depending on the floor, the colors lean pink, green, or blue, with custom-designed furniture swathed in high-end fabrics and materials such as brass, lacquer, oak, walnut, velvet, and silk. Common spaces feature midcentury modern pieces, including the all-day restaurant and adjacent bar. Save time to retreat to the spa with tailor-made Dermalogica treatments, a jetted bath, and a Hammam steam room. COVID-19 procedures are available here . Maison Souquet Neighborhood: Bordering Montmartre (18th Arrondissement) Typical starting/peak prices: As of press time, all rates started at $387/night through April 2022, a great deal to secure for a 5-star experience Best for: Couples, families, groups of friends On-site amenities: Indoor swimming pool, lounge, winter garden, Turkish bath Pros: The look of this intricately designed hotel is unmatched and dripping in romance, drama, and intrigue. Cons: The dark, moody feel might make smaller rooms appear extra small, and the seductive vibe won't be a fit for more traditional travelers. Majestic and oozing drama, staying at Maison Souquet feels like escaping to another time and place entirely thanks to Belle-Epoch interiors and dark, sultry decor. A mansion of sorts, there are just 20 rooms and the lobby feels like stepping into an ancient temple. Hidden behind an understated facade of just two red lanterns, this building once served as a pleasure house and that spirit of mystery, exoticism, and sensuality were all channeled into the look of ostentatious luxury now seen throughout the hotel. Guest rooms each bear the name of famous courtesans and are dark and dim, lit up by heart-shaped lamps. Deep fabrics and 120 different silks were carefully selected for each iconic room for a moody, intoxicating feel. All standard Deluxe rooms come with walk-in showers or bathtubs, Hermès toiletries and perfume, Wi-Fi, smart flat-screen TVs, mini fridge , climate control, a safe, and access to a spa and swimming pool set beneath a celestial ceiling. There's also a Moorish-style lounge and winter garden, a reading room with a hidden bar, and meals served all day. COVID-19 procedures are available here . Le Roch Hotel & Spa On-site amenities: Indoor swimming pool, spa, on-site restaurant, bar Pros: Lavish rooms feel sophisticated and fresh, and suites come with private Hammam steam rooms. The sleek ground-floor pool is a rare find in Paris. Cons: Like many restaurants in Paris, the main on-site restaurant closes for lunch and dinner on Sundays and Mondays. Tucked between Place Vendôme and the Louvre, Le Roch Hotel & Spa (hint: it's pronounced 'rock') boasts one of the most desirable spots in the city and an equally enticing ambiance. The hotel is enveloped in deep gem hues with velvet furnishings, statement color walls, and pops of turquoise and blue scattered against an immaculately soft, light palette. There are 37 rooms and suites curated by French designer Sarah Lavoine that range from the small, standard 200-square-foot Cosy Room to 375-square-foot Indulgence Suites, or a 500-square foot Suite Saint-Roch. Rooms are light-filled and include modern amenities such as flat-screen TVs, a smart speaker system, interactive tablets, free Wi-Fi, and statement decor. But its the suites that truly stand out with a private hammam steam bath. Le Roch's Restaurant, Bar, and Terrace serves seasonally-inspired French dishes, and many pop-up culinary events take place such as dining inspired by the desert or a new fragrance from a renowned perfumer. The terrace meanwhile is a verdant oasis bested in bliss only by the indoor lap pool crafted from black lava stone. There's also a fitness center, a spa providing personalized treatments with Codage skin products, and a Hammam steam room, in case your room didn't come with one. COVID-19 procedures are available here . Hotel Lutetia Pros: Bathrooms are beautiful and feature Hermès bath products as a nice touch. Cons: The surrounding area is one of the most expensive, for everything from coffee to clothing, in Paris. A longtime fixture in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés — one of Paris's most desirable, authentic Rive Gauche neighborhoods — Lutetia is steps from Le Bon Marché and all the edible delights at La Grande Epicerie . It was originally opened in 1910 by the Boucicaut family, founders of the aforementioned department store. This part of Paris, once known as a hub for free thinkers and creative types, attracted Hemingway and Matisse to stay here in the past, and today the hotel boasts an extravagant penthouse suite created in collaboration with Francis Ford Coppola. By design, the hotel is one of my favorites in Paris, because it is steeped in history and unfussily chic, light-filled, and sprinkled with shades of blue — a trend that runs through from the hallways down to details in the posh, contemporary guest rooms. The sophisticated jazz bar vibe at Bar Joséphine is worthy of a visit while in Paris whether you decide to stay at Lutetia or not, as is a visit to the Brasserie Lutetia for a lunch on its terrace. Guests seeking relaxation and solitude from the city's noisy streets can find it at the on-site Akasha Holistic Wellbeing Centre, a 7,500 sq ft spa with six treatment rooms offering some of the most innovative treatments and massages in town, plus a sauna, steam room, plunge pool, infinity-edge hot tub and a large fitness room. As of press time, the hotel is offering a complimentary night when two nights are booked, making a long weekend in Paris that much more desirable. COVID-19 procedures are available here . Fauchon Hotel Paris On-site amenities: Spa, fitness center, restaurant with seasonal terrace, tea garden Pros: The complimentary gourmet bar will delight even the most fastidious of foodies. Cons: It's on a busy road, so you may not get the quietest room. The Fauchon Hotel Paris is a five-star luxury boutique hotel, named after the world-renowned Fauchon gourmet food purveyor. What makes this charmer unique in a sea of luxury offerings is that the hotel is designed around the foodie experience and the French indulgence joie de vivre. When you arrive, guests are brought into the Library and served a welcome cocktail and fresh macarons. You'll actually find complimentary macarons throughout the hotel, and the hotel's iconic Gourmet Bar is a custom pink Roche Bobois armoire complete with Fauchon goodies and a complimentary bottle of champagne. While other hotels are cutting back on services during COVID-19 or slower to reopen, the Fauchon has been open for many months, turning an entire floor of the hotel into individual, private dining rooms for the ultimate in social distancing. The seasonal menu is only a suggestion, as well; guests can make arrangements in advance with the chef for dinner. COVID-19 procedures are available here . Hôtel Plaza Athénée Best for: Well-heeled, international jetsetters, destination honeymooners, celebrities, world-traveling families Typical Starting/Peak Prices: $1,000/$1,400 On-Site Amenities: Multiple restaurants including Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée , a 3-Michelin starred restaurant. There is also a  full service spa. Pros: The hotel offers guests a complimentary airport chauffeur. Cons: Wi-Fi is not free, and unlike other Paris luxury hotels, Hôtel Plaza Athénée lacks a swimming pool. Sophisticated shoppers will covet this hotel's location on the iconic Avenue Montaigne, the Madison Avenue of Paris filled with alluring window displays from some of the world's most celebrated couturiers and designers. Window sills covered in red geraniums make a statement that greets guests who pass this hotel and its stylish La Terrasse Montaigne from the street, but once inside, the piece-de-resistance is the ivy-covered walls of La Cour Jardin, the ideal place for al fresco tea, cocktails or nibbles in a courtyard filled with topiaries, trees and other plant life. Residence-like suites are filled with textured, traditional furnishings and details, and expert woodwork is part of the reason guests like me keep coming back. Many rooms also have private balconies, some with enchanting views of the fashion avenue and the Eiffel Tower. From the Classic Single Room type to the lavish Royal Suite — the largest in square footage in Paris — a highlight of guestrooms are the marble-clad bathrooms which produce the ambiance of a historic, French spa. COVID-19 procedures are available here .

FAQ: Paris hotels What is the best time of year to visit Paris? There is nothing that compares to a printemps — or springtime — stroll through the Tuileries garden in Paris, when the liquid sunlight bathes your skin and temperatures hover in the high 60s and low 70s later in the season. It is truly a magical time to experience Paris, a mix of tourists and locals emerging from hibernation in good spirits. If you do visit in the summer, keep in mind that in August, many French people take their holidays, and some businesses may be closed. As a rule of thumb, it's best to check ahead of time if you have your eye on visiting something specific. And while over the past few years the city has made efforts to open more businesses and shops on Sunday, it's still relatively common to find a closed sign on the door then. Paris winters are mostly gray, with chilly, but tolerable temperatures. Observing the City of Light all dressed up in twinkling lights around the holidays is dream-like, as is feasting on traditional Bûche de Noël (or Yule Log cakes). Which is the best area to stay in Paris? Look to stay in Zone 1, Paris's center where many of its top attractions are easily accessible either on foot or via the city's robust underground transit system, the Metro . I often advise travelers to stick closer to the Seine, especially if you want to maximize your time in town and quickly get around, though you're likely to pay a premium to do so. The Marais, one of Paris's most vibrant and centrally-located neighborhoods, lined with shops, hip restaurants, cafes, and galleries, is one of the best for a stay in Paris, and also happens to be Paris's queer center, making it a place LGBTQIA+ folks like myself prefer. Packed with students and a more bohemian, lively spirit, The Latin Quarter is a great choice for first-time visitors, as is Montmartre, which has charming, village-like streets with steep steps that guide travelers to its main attraction, Sacre Coeur. For a sophisticated French experience, opt for Saint-Germain-des-Prés. Those who come to Paris just to shop will want to station themselves near the Champs-Élysées, the grand boulevard Parisians avoid, but tourists flock to for luxury shopping and people-watching. If you're visiting Paris on business, the majority of your time may be spent in the financial hub, La Défense, an area filled with skyscrapers on the border of Zones 2 and 3, with the city center easily accessible by metro or the commuter train, referred to as the RER. Is it safe to stay in hotels? The CDC currently advises to delay or avoid travel until you are fully vaccinated. Once you are, you can safely travel internationally but should continue to understand all the requirements of your destination and understand that policies and restrictions may vary in other countries. Hotels are also implementing new cleaning policies to help guests rest easier. We've linked to the most up-to-date policies for each of the hotels so you can assess your risk level. However, because the pandemic situation continues to evolve, it's wise to read up on hotel cancellation policies and consider purchasing trip insurance to safeguard your travel investments, especially for overseas travels. Due to COVID-19 restrictions and their ability to change, it is best to check ahead of time before booking if a hotel's particular amenity, like a spa, restaurant, or fitness center, will be open during your visit. What is the best hotel near the Eiffel Tower? The area surrounding the Eiffel Tower, the 7th Arrondissement, and the neighboring, ritzy 16th, are known for luxurious homes and the stomping ground of Paris's privileged elite. One of our favorite hotels in this area, Hotel Le Walt Paris , is just a short walk through the Champ de Mars to the Eiffel Tower, and some of the rooms have storybook-like windows with views over France's most famous monument. Beds framed by museum-like works of art are a highlight of the hotel, as is the property's private garden terrace. For luxury seekers, the Hôtel Plaza Athénée is an experience in its own right, and many of their rooms also have views of the Eiffel Tower. Regardless of where you stay, the best place to see and photograph the Eiffel Tower is from the Trocadéro Gardens, directly across the Seine and quickly accessible from the monument by foot over the Pont d'Iéna foot bridge. What is the average cost of a hotel room in Paris? According to first-party search data provided by Trip Advisor , the average price of a hotel in Paris in 2019 — before the world and the travel industry was disrupted by COVID-19 — was $250 per night. Rovia 's first-party data further helps to confirm this, with a rep telling us that in 2019, the average hotel rate was €241. Early data from Trip Advisor suggests that as travelers re-enter the European market, they're looking to splurge a bit more to make up for lost time. After analyzing data from June 2021 through the end of the calendar year, the current average hotel price in Paris supports this, and is currently hovering around $342/night. In general, though, expect to pay higher prices in spring when the weather is the best, and be prepared to pay exorbitantly high rates around Christmas, when hotel vacancy is rare.

Due to its incredibly walkable location and appealing policies for kids, Holiday Inn Paris – Notre Dame has long been a preferred hotel in Paris for traveling families.

As of publishing, French President Emmanuel Macron has laid out a reopening plan to allow Americans who are vaccinated or can show proof of a recent negative COVID-19 test (within 72 hours of departure), to enter the country starting as early as June 9, 2021. The announcement coincides with a broader reopening of the country's restaurants and cafes, theaters, museums, concert venues, and non-essential shops, not to mention increased limits on attendance for events. As the entry requirements or restrictions could change depending on France's COVID-19 levels, it's best to keep an eye on their Coronavirus - Advice for Foreign Nationals in France , which has been releasing official details for foreigners in English. Visitors must also present a negative COVID-19 test, regardless of vaccination status, to return to the United States, which means you'll need to find a reliable testing location in Paris or test at the airport prior to departure .
