Wondering where to stay while in Paris?
Here are CovetED’s top 5 favorite hotels!
Grand Hotel du Palais Royal
A sumptuous establishment at the very heart of Paris, this hotel was the location where Louis XVI learned to ride.
For those who want to meet the city of lights with its union between past and present, customary elegance, and contemporary hospitality, this is the place you must visit. The hotel, completely renovated, offers in many places delightful views of Paris, and is the quintessence of Parisian chic.
This unusual hotel is the only chateau-hotel of the capital, as well as the home of the very private Saint James Club. Built in 1892 this amazing hotel was redesigned by the dream-maker Bambi Sloan who added her touch of extravaganza, creating the perfect atmosphere to dream of being part of royalty.
La Maison Champs Èlysèes
In the heart of the Parisian Golden Triangle, La Maison Champs Élysées is a mix between comfort and French elegance where reality blends with surreal style. Here, dramatic illusions and ironic interiors seduce guests to return. Although it is strolling distance from the luxury and fashion epicenter Avenue Montaigne, Champs-Élysées, and many more of Paris’ iconic landmarks, the entrance to the townhouse at No. 8 Rue Jean Goujon is discreet, an address you must know to discover.
Hotel Sezz Paris
Mixing Art Nouveau with contemporary, the Sezz boutique hotel in Paris is an haute-design mecca that places extraordinary emphasis on service, shaking up the luxe Right Bank Passy neighborhood in the process. With a sweeping view of the Eiffel tower from its hillside location across the Seine, each guest receives a personal assistant to take care of them during their stay.

Le Cinq Codet
Le Cinq Codet begins with a 1930s office block, something of an early modernist monument, and the contemporary renovation stays faithful to the period. The result, thanks to the work of star designer Jean-Philippe Nuel, is something that’s as stylish as any Parisian boutique, and very nearly as luxurious as any of Paris’s famous grand palace hotels.
This luxury hotel offers exceptional service in their restaurant along with a sunny indoor bar and an outdoor terrace for enjoying your favorite drink. At Le Cinq Codet you will find first-class stylish service and atmosphere!
Paris is a must for delicious cuisine prepared by some of the world’s most talented chefs! Check out CovetED’s top restaurant choices.
Situated above the Théâtre des Champs Elysées, on the prestigious avenue Montaigne in the 8th district, the Maison Blanche restaurant offers a fabulous view over the west area of Paris from its 2 terraces. In a setting designed by Imaad Rahmouni, with simple lines and sleek design, restaurant Maison Blanche expresses upscale food, largely inspired by the Languedoc terroir. In its modern and pure decor, the chef, Hervé Nepple, creates a highly ambitious and inventive cuisine in collaboration with Jacques and Laurent Pourcel, multi-starred chefs at Jardin des Sens in Montpellier.

With its laid-back brasserie setting, the Publicis Drugstore has become the ideal trendy Parisian meeting place. The refined and naturally lit dining room with its huge central bar with Corian inlays and its large bay window allows you to watch the chic nonchalance of the passers-by on the Champs-Elysées in the 8th district. The seasonal menu is created by Olivier Dupart who skillfully brings a new touch to the great standard and vintage dishes to this design restaurant.
Ultramodern, on the top two floors of Kenzo’s main office, in front of the Pont Neuf of the 1st district, the design restaurant Kong resides up in the sky with a view of the Seine. The decor is signed Philippe Starck, the menu Fumiko Kono. Halfway between Paris and Tokyo, you’ll be surrounded by Louis XV armchairs, plasma screens, a fluorescent staircase, and a carpet of pebbles. Kong is very Parisian, luxurious, and accessible all at the same time.
Ciel de Paris
The Montparnasse Tower in Paris has always been a popular tourist destination because of its spectacular views of the city’s well known landmarks. Now however, after the redesigning and total refurbishment of the 56th floor by well known French designer, Noe Duchaufour Lawrance, the Ciel de Paris restaurant is in direct competition with the views from its expansive bay window.
L’Opera was the dream of Charles Garnier: allowing spectators to eat within his Palais of the 9th district. This became possible thanks to the talent of Odile Decq who succeeded in the endeavor of creating a design restaurant within the Opéra itself, without touching the walls or altering the 19th century masterpiece. Sip a chic cocktail at the lounge bar before trying out the cuisine of the talented French chef, YannTanneau, who creatively updates regional produce throughout the seasons.
