When thinking about where to stay in Paris, I generally recommend staying around arrondissements (or districts) 1 through 9, as they are a bit more central to some of the best places to visit in Paris.
If you are anything like me and want to spend more time in the heart of the city, I suggest trying to stick to districts 1 through 9.
Here are the best hotels to stay at in Paris!
Luxury Hotels in Paris
Hôtel De Crillon
Once you see Hôtel de Crillon…you may not want to consider anywhere else in Paris!
Crillon is one of the historic “Palace” hotels in Paris and it doesn’t disappoint. You can arrange for a round-trip airport transfer to and from the hotel, and the staff is remarkable.
The historic hotel was opened in 1909, but the building dates back to 1758 (holy smokes!). It’s located just at the foot of the Champs-Élysées — perfect for morning strolls.
The Shangri-La occupies a former royal home and is situated amongst extremely elegant buildings. It’s also just a cool 11-minute walk to the Eiffel Tower (perfect for morning or evening strolls).
It happens to have 1 Michelin star restaurant, to boot. All of the rooms are elegantly decorated with shades of blue, white, and ecru — which plays off the European Empire and Asian aesthetics.
Just wait until you see their indoor swimming pool and fitness room! Guests are also welcome to enjoy the historic billiard room – complete with a fireplace.
Mandarin Oriental, Paris
The Mandarin Oriental, Paris is a contemporary yet whimsical hotel tucked away in camellia tree gardens, sits right on Rue Saint-Honoré– one of Paris’ most upmarket shopping streets.
While the shopping is nothing short of chic, the area itself is a bit quieter than other spots in Paris. Yet you will still be able to find many things extremely close like the River Seine, Musée d’Orsay, and even the Louvre, one of Paris’ most well-known attractions.
If you’re looking for a family-friendly option, look no further. There is a dedicated children’s concierge, mini bathrobes, and video games to keep the little ones entertained.
If you’re looking for a more romantic adult-geared experience, there’s also an indoor swimming pool and a spa with private spa suites for two and steam showers. Upon arrival, expect a glass of champagne waiting for you, as a warm welcome to the city.
While there are many hotels throughout Paris, it’s not often that you find one with a two-star Michelin restaurant.
