While Paris is an architecturally historic city it is also the city of contemporary design. It has numerous designer hotels that have been decorated or redecorated by interior designers.
When it comes to style, there is something for everyone. The irreverent Cristal Champs-Élysées offers bedrooms and suites in vivid colours, with incongruous curves and atypical materials.
At the Hidden Hôtel, a short walk from the Arc de Triomphe, each of the 35 rooms is like a secret alcove behind a fine net curtain, with uncluttered, intimate decor. In the Bastille district, L’Original is a hotel with 38 rooms on a poetic, fantasy theme, created by the fashion designer Stella Cadente. Don’t miss the "Alice in Wonderland" room!
Equally glamorous, the Platine Hôtel, which combines modern design and vintage charm with its Fifties decor pays tribute to Marilyn Monroe. The icing on the cake: it has a spa with steam room, sauna and massage service.
A short walk from avenue Montaigne, the Maison Champs-Élysées styles itself a ‘couture’ hotel signed Martin Margiela. An original and sophisticated establishment.
From the Maison FL, a 4-star boutique hotel in an Art-deco-style building which has been entirely renovated by the architect François Champsaur, you have an incredible view of the Eiffel Tower.
