A Romantic Hotel Sets The Tone For Your Parisian Romance

Paris offers a plethora of hotel rooms. A quick glance will steer you towards over 2000 choices and that’s not counting the apartment vacation rentals and other alternative accommodations. Still, there is a particular romance to staying in a hotel, where you can have breakfast in bed, order a bottle of bubbly from room service and take a bath together in the oversized tub with jet streams.

Ahhh. Romance. We all deserve that elixir now and again and Paris is the place for it.

For a true romantic getaway look no farther than the Trianon Palace Versailles, a Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. More gems include the Hotel d'Aubusson in St. Germain-des-Prés, as well as Pershing Hall near the Champs-Elysées. The top floor suites of The Peninsula Hotel are unparalleled in terms of opulent luxury.  Hotel Vernet is just steps from the Arc de Triomphe and when originally built at the last turn of the century, it was with Americans in mind arriving off the steamships for their long sojourns. Hence, the rooms are spacious.
