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).

Best Hotels in Paris

Summer is right around the corner and there is no place better than the “City of Lights” to jaunt off to for a great long weekend.  We love Paris and there are so many great hotels there! Here are just a few of our faves – in case you were wondering…

Le Royal Monceau Raffles – This Philippe Starck hotel is quirky but fabulous – definitely not traditional, but once you stay here you won’t want to go anywhere else.

Shangri-La – This former residence of the grand nephew of Napoleon has been completely restored  into a fantastic 5 star hotel with 2 Michelin rated restaurants – plus the Eiffel Tower views can’t be beat.

Hotel Ritz – Even though they are closing for an unprecedented 2 year renovation  there is still time to stay this summer.

Hotel Le Bristol – Classic French luxury, pure and simple.

Le Esprit St. Germain This great quaint hotel on the Left Bank is like staying at a friend’s house.  You will feel completely at home especially as you are enjoying complimentary wine at happy hour.
