There’s a certain joy that arises from wandering through Paris’s arrondissements and soaking up their distinctive personalities. The best hotels in Paris embody this feeling, which becomes palpable as you walk through the lobby doors. Add to that a strong sense of history and top-notch service, and you’ll have what seems to be the magic formula for winners.
Hotels were rated on their facilities, location, service, food, and overall value. Properties were classified as city or resort based on their locations and amenities.
Hotel Lutetia, which emerged from a four-year renovation in 2018, joined the list. The 184-room property has long drawn an elite crowd and impressed travelers with its luxurious Art Deco interiors, but the overhaul has raised the bar even further.
Everything has been thought of in its restoration — the tech is exceptional; the spa is divine; the bars and restaurants are atmospheric; and the service was second to none.
The Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme continues to win over guests with its prized location. A beautiful hotel in the midst of exquisite shopping streets and next to the Louvre. And Le Bristol, which takes second place this year, proves guests love and notice even the smallest details.
Winner, the storied Ritz Paris, also gets all the modern-day details just right while being incredibly steeped in history.
