This brand new hotel has combined the best of authentic Paris and made it even better. Owned by an independent hotelier â€" a rarity these days in Paris â€" this entrepreneur had the foresight to combine his three beloved boutique hotels that graced a whole corner of this most luxurious of Paris neighborhoods, and join them together. Voilà, Le Saint. The hallmarks of the previous hotels (Le St. Vincent, the Lennox and St. Thomas d'Aquin) were the spacious comfort of the rooms and the relaxed, welcoming atmosphere that greeted you. Le Saint has embodied all of this and more. Now you have exactly those elements in an even more upscale, refreshed and refined setting. And the three previous hotels now interconnect, to become one. To have this amount of space, yet to retain the homey, first-name basis greetings from the staff, is something unique, even here in Paris.

Recommended for Luxury Hotels because: This hotel is not trying to be a palace nor is it desiring to be a boutique hotel. Rather, it is Le Saint.
