Paris offers world class hotels, small chic boutique hotels, and even smaller family run spots that are likely to offer a more homey atmosphere & breakfast in the morning.
Short-term vacation apartment rentals are a good alternative to hotels.
Here are my favorite places to stay in Paris
Hotel Le A
This small and elegant hotel, ideally situated between the Champs-Elysees and the rue Faubourg-St-Honore has restrained contemporary decor. High end touches like Flat-screen TVs, CD players and double glazed windows make your stay more than comfortable.
Just steps from the Louvre, this beautiful old building has been converted into a full-service boutique hotel. The glass-roofed atrium lobby and the library alcove provide a welcome getaway from the busy city. The small bar has become a chic late-night dining spot. Rooms are decorated with a comforting mix of 30's and 50's furniture and have all the high end amenities you would expect. Service is friendly. The basement health club is exceptional.
Pavillion de Paris
Located in the heart of Paris, this is a great hotel for business travelers and tourists.
Hotel Du Petit Moulin
This newly opened hotel is located in the hip Marais area of Paris. Rooms were designed by Christian Lacroix who has gone wild with the decor. This small hotel has only 17 guest rooms, all decorated differently... you definitely won't be bored by asian/zen minimalism here!
This well located hotel in the 1st (close to the Tuileries) puts you in the center of right bank shopping at a reasonable price! Charming rooms begin at $160/night.
