The historic MGallery Molitor has evolved from a popular public swimming location to an art gallery to an abandoned warehouse. After a May 2014 renovation, it transformed itself yet again -- this time as a stylish, luxurious hotel. Geared toward the fashion-conscious, the Moliter’s 124 rooms, though on the small side, are bright and modern with plush, comfortable beds. The expansive indoor and outdoor pools are free for guest use, the Art Deco architecture truly unique, and the dining first-rate. However, it's located on the outskirts of the city limits in the 16th arrondissement, and the trip to central Paris involves a 30-minute taxi or metro ride.
