The hotels on this list have been curated expressly for their luxury, their warmth, their convenient locations and gracious amenities and, above all, for that safe haven they afford you and your loved ones during your stay in Paris, the City of Lights.
Paris is the city that coined the term Palace for its ultra-luxury hotels, of which there are now more than a handful. But rather than pack this list exclusively with Palace Hotels, I've included only two and for the rest on this list you will find a range of 5-star hotels, like the Hotel Banke 5*, to luxury boutique hotels. The five-star luxury hotels are becoming more numerous each year, with the biggest slice of the Paris pie still taken by the three- and four-star hotels. Those have felt competition recently from the burgeoning vacation apartment rentals to be found in the city. The trend of rent-your-spare-room-to-vacationers has quickly become the hottest thing in Paris, too, as the city's tourism trends follow global trends.
The range of quality accommodations you can find in Paris is staggering; From dens of luxury and opulence to cosy little apartment-like dwellings. The city offers beautiful accommodations whether you are visiting on business, leisure or for family reasons. You can also find hotels with babysitting services and activities designed for the kids for that date-night with your spouse or the afternoon at the spa.
A wonderful gem to keep in mind is the Auberge du Jeu de Paume located in Chantilly, which is halfway between Paris and Charles de Gaulle airport. This makes it a super convenient stay for a relaxing few days on your way into or out of the city. The idyllic setting, full of chateaux, grand stables and equestrian culture will make you feel to the manor born.
All of these hotels on this list have flawless service and amenities such as WiFi and other standards the international traveler has come to expect. The classic hotels often have a dedicated breakfast room where you can sneak a peek at your fellow travelers. Business and leisure travelers may opt for a hotel with a good concierge, for those must-have dinner reservations or concert tickets. Paris... there's nothing like breakfast in bed of croissants and café au lait while overlooking the Eiffel Tower, the Sacré Coeur or the Jardin de Luxembourg from your top-floor balcony.
