As a destination, Paris is always a good idea for a romance. Ahhh. Romance. That elixir we all deserve now and again and Paris is the place for it.
This city has seen dozens of new hotel openings in the past year alone. Many of the older hotels that were formerly 3-stars are now being bought out by new blood and refashioned into 4-star and 5-star Luxury properties that offer the enticement of an experience. Two of these hotels that you'll find here on this list are Hotel de JoBo (JoBo standing for Josephine Bonaparte, the woman who symbolizes French romance) and Le Roch Hotel & Spa. Each property has opened in the past 6 months (at time of writing) and each offers a cocoon-like experience of what you expect when you book a hotel getaway.
For a palatial feel, there is no topping La Reserve Hotel & Spa's complete package. The sumptuous rooms designed by Jacques Garcia, the 2-star Michelin restaurant, the bar that is just adjacent to the sitting lounge replete with fireplace, the cigar room, the interior courtyard garden and the spa, a haven unto itself that has been designed for exclusive enjoyment and which offers indulgent spa treatments for couples (or singles).
For Left Bank chic, stay in the famous 5-star hotel just near the Ecole des Beaux Arts where Oscar Wilde spent his last days. The restaurant here, Le Restaurant, has recently been bequeathed a Michelin star and the bar, in which still hangs pictures of former regular clients such as Johnny Depp and Mick Jagger, gives you that not-so-subtle reminder of only in Paris.
Other highlights here include the Indigo Hotel Opera, tucked away in a little pedestrian cul-de-sac just a twirl away from the Opera de Paris and then of course there's the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Paris whose bridal suite is one of the world's best.
