What Does Your Hotel Say About You?

George V Entrance









Just like your clothes or your career, where you decide to stay can say a lot about you — so what does your hotel say about you?

Paris is one of our favorite cities and there are so many fantastic hotels to choose from….so which one is best suited to match your personality? We selected some of the best to help you decide which is the perfect property for your next trip to the City of Light.

Four Seasons George V:  This hotel is the epitome of classic luxury.  Perfect for people who want to see and be seen, and also the ideal place for name dropping.  If you love Chanel you will love George V.  If you are a New Yorker think Upper East Side.

Le Royal Monceau Raffles:  This hotel is cutting edge luxury. If you have already been there and done that, come see this! Perfect for artists and designers, this property takes a modern twist on elegance.

Le Bristol:  Refined and sophisticated, the Bristol is discrete and private; totally luxe but without being flashy.  Think Akris or Jill Sander; very Upper West Side.

Esprit Saint Germain:  This hotel is more quiet and off the beaten path.  For those who are low key and subtle, but with excellent taste. More Williamsburg or Trastevere than Champs Elysees.

Shangri La: This property is also for the understated individual…someone who appreciates elegance and history and service, but has a quiet side and doesn’t need to be in the center of the action…but LOVES a good view – most rooms have incredible Eiffle Tower views (see below).

Wythe Hotel in Williamsburg

There is a new hotel in NYC…

Right across the river from Manhattan, the Wythe Hotel in Williamsburg offers amazing views and lots of eclectic touches. Local artists have been commissioned to provide artwork and custom wallpaper for the rooms, the floors are heated, the mini bar is seasonal and the beds have been crafted from reclaimed wood found in the building. Plus, there is a great restaurant Reynards (from the owner of other neighborhood faves, Marlow and Diner) where the menu changes daily, and a rooftop bar. They are now taking reservations for stays beginning May 1.

Sounds like a winner!
