InterContinental Paris Avenue Marceau Rating: 4.0 Pearls
The InterContinental is the top business hotel in Paris, as evidenced by the suit-clad clienetele bustling through the lobby on weekdays. The hotel features a large conference room that can be cornered off into three seperate rooms, as well as 24-hour room service, a car service, a small business center, and free Wi-Fi -- all important for business travelers. Plus, the luxe, modern rooms (many with work desks) are comfortable, and come with coffeemakers or -- in the massive suites -- Nespresso machines.
Hotel Le Bristol Rating: 4.5 Pearls
This luxury property is one of the most business-friendly hotels in Paris. It may not be a name synonymous with luxury business hotel chains, like the InterContinental is, and it doesn't host as many business travelers, but it has plenty of top-notch business amenities. It features seven meeting rooms -- all gorgeous with antique furniture and often with large, light-filled windows. There is also a business center -- with pricey services such as translations and shipping -- and smart cars available for rent. The 24-hour room service is also a plus, but Wi-Fi comes at an additional fee
Hotel Plaza Athenee Rating: 5.0 Pearls
The world-renowned luxury hotel Plaza Athenee -- a part of the Dorchester Collection -- may be synonymous with Parisian elegance and good taste, but it's also a great spot for business travelers looking for a full-service hotel. It has two meeting rooms, an on-site, 24-hour business center, car service, free shoe shines, and six delicious restaurants for impressing finicky clients.
