The Paris Hotels Worth Your “Ooh La La’s”

I’ve always dreamed about having the perfect hotel room in Paris – one that looks out to a view of the Eiffel Tower so that I can wake up, order breakfast in bed (or on my terrace!), and enjoy my morning soaking up the view and sipping a glass of champagne.  Wouldn’t that be the life?

I’m hoping I’ll get to make this fantasy a reality one day… maybe (hopefully) not too far into the future.  In the meantime, I already know the Parisian hotels that would be perfect for turning that dream into reality:

Mandarin Oriental

I’ve never stayed at a Mandarin Oriental before but it doesn’t mean I haven’t been eyeing the brand!  Their Paris hotel doesn’t disappoint either – when I checked out the rooms, they all manage to offer modern style in a luxe setting (but really, would you expect anything less?).  Add to that the gorge view of the Eiffel Tower and I’m sold!

Shangri-La Hotel

This is what I’m talking about!  Practically floor to ceiling windows, a front row view of the Eiffel Tower, and the simplistic elegance of a cream colored room.  Love, love, love!

Plaza Athenee

Mr. T. and I walked by this hotel on Rue Montaigne as we were doing some serious shopping.  From the outside, this hotel exudes Parisian class and has the best location — helloright next to a row of designer stores and minutes from the Eiffel Tower?! I’m. So. There.

St. Regis

The St. Regis is not only one of my favorite luxe brands, they are the epitome of excellent customer service.  I’ve yet to go to a St. Regis I didn’t like so I’m positive I’d love staying at the St. Regis in Paris, too.  Check out this beautiful suite!  It looks so regal and so classically European.  I’m in love!

Four Seasons Hotel George V

I’ve adored this Four Seasons ever since I saw Jeff Latham’s to-die-for floral arrangements at this hotel.  The floral arrangements are lavish yet elegant, modern yet stylish; the rest of the hotel’s got to be on par with that.  After browsing the hotel rooms online, it’s official – I could totally get design inspiration from every single room here.  On top of that, just look at this fab terrace!  There’s sweeping views of the whole city AND the Eiffel Tower looming proudly at the center of it all.  Can I move in?

The Westin Vendome

We almost booked this hotel for our last trip – almost!  This Westin looks sophisticated and beautifully appointed – not a bad place to come back to after a day of sight-seeing.  It also doesn’t hurt that of the hotels on this list, this one may be the most affordable, too (which means, there’s no guilt indulging in another bottle of Moët, s’il vous plaît!).

Have you stayed at one of these hotels before?  Do you know of any others I should add to my dream list?
