Hotel Fontaines Du Luxembourg Rating: 3.0 Pearls

Housed in a historic 17th century stone building -- Louis XIV used to house his grooms on-site back in the day -- Hotel Fontaines Du Luxembourg offers a charming juxtaposition of old-world charm and funky modern design. The reception area at this 30-room boutique hotel speaks well to this aesthetic, where exposed beam ceilings and stone walls blend with colorful murals and modern chandeliers. Breakfast is served daily in a quaint room on the first floor and, on nice days, meals and drinks from the hotel's lounge can be enjoyed outside in a small, private courtyard. Rooms feature solid amenities, including free Wi-Fi, flat-screen televisions, and comfortable beds.

Paris' rich history is alive and well everywhere you look in this international city. In fact, some of our favorite hotels are also among the most historical around town. Whether they are housed in centuries' old chateaus or Jazz-era hotels, these properties stand ready to be explored by history buffs of every travel type. Check them out in this slideshow:
The world-renowned luxury hotel Plaza Athenee -- a part of the Dorchester Collection -- is synonymous with Parisian elegance and good taste. Iconic red awnings and chestnut trees welcome guests to the historic setting, on the upscale Avenue Montaigne location with direct views of the Eiffel Tower. It's all about luxury here, inside and out. The avenue is lined with high-end shops such as Christian Dior (guests have access to the Dior Institute for a full range of quality beauty and spa treatments), Prada, and Chanel. The 88-room Hotel Le Bristol opened its doors in 1925 during the Roaring Twenties, and today is still one of Paris' best-known luxury hotels. It offers impressive amenities for its small size, including a sunlit indoor pool (a rare find in Paris); a three-Michelin-star restaurant, Epicure; and a lovely spa with three floors featuring a Turkish bath and playroom for kids. The hotel -- located on one of the most high-end shopping streets in Paris -- is steps to the Hermes flagship store, as well as avenue Montaigne and Champs Elysees. Situated in a stately 1892 townhouse that was converted into a luxury hotel in the 1920s, the upscale boutique Hotel Baltimore offers a charming Parisian experience with modern comforts. Outside, delicate flowers spill from wrought-iron window ledges, and inside, the lobby and hotel bar feature plush, velvet camelback seating. Each of the 103 rooms is nicely decorated in a classic modern style with simple furnishings swathed in neutral tones. Rooms are small, which is to be expected in a historic property, but the beds are large and comfortable with pillowy down comforters. The Hotel Duc de Saint-Simon is a classic choice for those seeking a traditional Parisian hotel with historic and romantic touches. It is said to be the place where Lauren Bacall stays while in Paris, which might help describe the guests who best fit in here: people of a certain age, with a certain budget. Rooms are not cheap, but the hotel sees many repeat visitors thanks to its great location on the Left Bank near Saint Germain and the Musee d'Orsay. The property is split by an outdoor terrace, and has a labyrinth feel on the inside with a series of small lounge areas. Head downstairs to the underground cave for breakfast or cocktails, and marvel at the oil paintings and Persian rugs. Built in 1855, this beautiful building was originally the Louvre des Antiquaires, and in 1887 became France's first luxury hotel. The building itself features tall, thick columns and wrought-iron railings. Inside, the style is classically elegant, if a bit drab -- some renovations would make it feel a bit more vibrant. The rooms actually quite bright, though, thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows. In the world of luxury hotels here, the Hotel du Louvre's main selling point is its location: across the street from the Louvre Museum, and right on Rue Saint Honore, close to cafes, restaurants, and designer shopping. This historic Parisian building near Champs Elysees -- once a private mansion of Comte de Breteuil, and formerly known as the Crowne Plaza hotel -- is now owned by the InterContinental brand. But the property doesn't feel like a chain, offering 55 rooms and stylish boutique design by Bruno Borrione. Well-dressed guests linger in the communal areas, which include a lounge, and outdoor terrace surrounded by potted plants and classic architecture. The attached jazz-themed restaurant serves continental breakfast in the mornings and international gourmet cuisine for lunch and dinner. With a sweeping private entrance surrounded by green lawns and an impressive fountain, the upscale Saint James is a rare find in Paris -- in fact, the 19th century manor is considered the only chateau-hotel in the city. It's fitting that the hotel is located in the wealthy 16th arrondissement (and yes, valet parking is included). The 48 rooms and suites are large by Paris standards, and decorated in plush luxurious fabrics. But the common areas are more impressive -- especially the black and white grand staircase on the main floor. The terrace is a beautiful spot for lunch on a nice summer day. The historic Relais Christine is a beautiful boutique hotel with an enviable address in the Left Bank of Paris. While it only has 51 rooms and suites, it has the amenities of a larger luxury hotel, including an on-site spa, fitness center, 24-hour room service, and first-rate concierge service. One of the most charming features of this former mansion is its entrance through a leafy courtyard. Modern rooms reflect the character of the building with details such as exposed beams and wallpaper in antique Parisian prints. The breakfast room is in the historic vaults of the building, parking and Wi-Fi are free, and the Left Bank location is within walking distance of Notre Dame Cathedral. Hotel Pershing Hall is located in the heart of the Golden Triangle. This beautiful 18th century building is home to the trendy Restaurant Pershing and a popular lounge. An indoor courtyard with retractable roof and vertical garden is a highlight here, along with a small fitness center and spa. While there are some great freebies -- including breakfast, Wi-Fi, and bottled water -- rooms at the lower floors experience significant noise from the bar and lounge downstairs. Rooms are stylish and sleek, and bathrooms have walk-in showers (some have soaking tubs). The 42-room Aviatic Hotel was built in 1856, and its facade has a stately and austere appearance. The inside, however, mixes historical appeal (crown moldings, statuesque busts, lantern pendant lighting) with modern comforts and conveniences (flat-screen TVs, contemporary decor, free Wi-Fi). Although rooms are on the small side (fairly standard in Paris), they feel larger thanks to big windows and mirrored closet doors. A quaint dining area features a daily breakfast menu (at cost), and the location in the chic, artsy Saint-Germain des Pres area near several metro stations makes this a great hub from which to explore the city. The Hotel Lutetia -- in all of its Art Deco glory -- is a sprawling historic property on the Left Bank in the center of Saint Germain-des-Pres. This Jazz-era hotel offers meeting rooms, two restaurants, a bar, spa, fitness center, and even a smoking lounge. The Parisian Suite was once the residence of the Opera House Director and has direct views of the Eiffel Tower. The two restaurants include a classic brasserie and the gastronomic restaurant "Le Paris" reminiscent of cruise liners in the 1930s. The Piano Bar for live jazz is a mustn't-miss. Perhaps the best aspect of this mid-range hotel is its close proximity (literally steps) to Notre Dame Cathedral. This also means guests have direct access to the Latin Quarter and Saint Germain for unbeatable culture and many restaurants. But it's not only about the location -- the rooms, designed by Christian LaCroix, are something special, with funky colors, fabrics, and eccentric touches everywhere. The building is about 400 years old, so it has some quirks. For the young and adventurous, the Hotel Le Notre Dame is a great choice. The area is bustling with vendors, tourists, and traffic, which brings in a bit of noise but also a lot of excitement. ]This mid-range, 33-room boutique hotel in Montparnasse is within walking distance of a few sights, including the Luxembourg Gardens and Montparnasse Cemetery. Original touches, contemporary Parisian furnishings, and artisanal craftsmanship create a charming feel. Each room has its own distinct decor style, and amenities include minibars, flat-screen TVs and modern bathrooms (some come with large tubs and balconies). Breakfast is served in the historic lower level, but it does come with a hefty fee. The quaint and cozy Hotel Le Clos Medicis exudes old-world Parisian charm throughout its 18th century building, which located on Paris' Left Bank just around the corner from the Luxembourg Gardens. From the beamed ceilings to the lovely courtyard, this 38-room boutique property is warm and welcoming -- but not luxurious. There is free Wi-Fi throughout the property and a 24-hour lounge on-site, but breakfast is not included in the room rate and rooms (though charming) are very small and show signs of age. Housed in a historic 17th century stone building -- Louis XIV used to house his grooms on-site back in the day -- Hotel Fontaines Du Luxembourg offers a charming juxtaposition of old-world charm and funky modern design. The reception area at this 30-room boutique hotel speaks well to this aesthetic, where exposed beam ceilings and stone walls blend with colorful murals and modern chandeliers. Breakfast is served daily in a quaint room on the first floor and, on nice days, meals and drinks from the hotel's lounge can be enjoyed outside in a small, private courtyard. Rooms feature solid amenities, including free Wi-Fi, flat-screen televisions, and comfortable beds.
