The Prince de Galles, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Paris is Art Deco elegance and refined class. The Renaissance Paris Le Parc Trocadero Hotel is a short taxi ride from the Parc des Princes, it offers architectural refinement in the 5-star hotel’s property, including its courtyard garden. Saint James Paris is one of the more singular hotels on this list. It’s a self-standing mansion set off the street in its own private gardens.
To mix things up a bit, I’ve added a little hotels in Passy that has such a loyal clientele you must book in advance. It’s clean, inexpensive and charming. If a sexy weekend is on your mind, give Hotel Sezz Paris a spin. And for a truly one-of-a-kind direct view onto the Eiffel Tower take a stroll over to Trocadero and indulge in those selfies.
Pullman Paris Tour Eiffel
If you're a hyperconnected traveler, this modern multi-storied Accor Brand hotel is for you. Coining their own term, "bleisure," for the profile they've given their guests' penchant of combining business with leisure, the Pullman experience is for those who work hard, play hard. Blurring the line between work and relaxation is what this property is about. The location is a stone's throw from the Eiffel Tower and Champ de Mars. One of the signature features of a Pullman Hotel is their Vinoteca, one of those wine dispensing machines that offer you as little as a taste or as much as a glass of wine from a choice of about 50 on hand. Connectivity by Pullman translates to offering Samsung touch screen tablets for loan which guests can use to order a VOD to begin watching on their in-room TV and then continue watching on their tablet at the bar. WiFi-equipped.
This hotel is one of those little Passy gems. Passy is the exclusive neighbourhood in Western Paris just west of Trocadéro. Down a small sidestreet and within a garden courtyard is where this two-star hotel is nestled. But it's one of those properties that defies ranking. Clientele here are so loyal that it's tough to get a reservation at any time of the year but especially during high season such as Roland Garros. Why the loyalty? The staff is friendly, the family hotel is extraordinarily clean and well maintained. Rooms are furnished with classic antiques that have an oriental charm to them. Common rooms such as the hallways and breakfast rooms are adorned with carved wooden animal heads such as elephants, zebras and other exotic fauna. Breakfast is simple but copious. Plates of fresh seasonal fruit are laid out buffet style and served with fresh pastries and hot coffee.
Prince de Galles, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Paris
Some hotels dazzle with their public spaces and some with their rooms and suites, the Prince de Galles does both. This is a Luxury Collection Hotel (Starwood Group) whose fineness of detail becomes more apparent the longer you cast your appreciative gaze on it. Mosaics are the exquisite interior detail of this Art Deco historical monument building. Most visible from the public spaces of Le Patio and Les Heures Le Bar, the interior courtyard mosaic inlays are breathtaking and unique here in Paris. During its 2013 property renovation, the 1-Michelin star La Scéne restaurant put the chef and her kitchen on full display, as if to be "on stage." Two other design themes throughout the hotel are macassar (fine grained) wood for bespoke furnishings throughout the rooms and suites and the three-feathered Prince de Galles emblem, an Art Deco version of the Prince of Wales' very own.
