Hotel Lancaster

Hotel Lancaster Rating: 5.0 Pearls

The 57-room boutique Hotel Lancaster is a gem, a very expensive, finely cut and cared for gem, that envelops guests in an atmosphere of intimacy and privilege. Marlene Dietrich lived here in the 1930s, and the Marlene Dietrich Suite is available for those who want to vacation in the movie star’s stilettos. Built in 1889, the Lancaster is close to the Champs Elysee but hidden away, a discreet, elegant escape from the 21st-century tech and neon chaos that now permeates the famous avenue.

Shangri-La Hotel Paris

Shangri-La Hotel Paris Rating: 5.0 Pearls

Guests at the 101-room Shangri-La Hotel Paris receive the five-star treatment in this former palace, built by Napoleon for his grandnephew. Because of its meticulous restoration and attention to detail, Shangri-La feels like a boutique hotel, or a museum in which you can spend the night. Two Michelin-star restaurants and the unparalleled views of the Eiffel Tower from balconies -- and even from some guest room bathtubs -- mean Shangri-La truly lives up to its reputation as a top luxury stay.

Hotel Fouquet's Barriere

Hotel Fouquet's Barriere Rating: 5.0 Pearls

Located on the Champs Élysées, the Fouquet's Barrière is one of the most famous and exclusive luxury hotels in Paris. It has a slightly modernized Haussmann-style exterior, while interior design combines baroque, surrealist, and classic style elements with contemporary flair. Sophisticated rooms start at 400 square feet, and black marble bathrooms have separate showers and tubs as well as TVs in the mirrors. The extensive features include three restaurants (one Michelin-starred), an upscale spa, and a gorgeous indoor swimming pool. The hotel deserves its five-star status, but this level of luxury comes at a very high price.

Hotel Plaza Athenee

Hotel Plaza Athenee Rating: 5.0 Pearls

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. And inside, the 146 rooms and 45 suites are decorated in classic Art Deco style with modern touches like flat-screen TVs and marble baths. With six distinct restaurants, a large fitness center, and a can't-miss daily breakfast in a leafy garden, the Plaza Athenee doesn't miss a beat. But it comes at a high price -- and Wi-Fi isn't even included in that cost.

Hotel Le Bristol

Hotel Le Bristol Rating: 4.5 Pearls

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. Families are welcome in this posh environment: There's a dedicated Children's Programme, and little ones may appreciate the fact that there's a resident cat roaming the hotel. Rooms are elegant, aside from the dated comforters, and vary in size and price. 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.

Hotel Brighton

Hotel Brighton Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The 61-room Hotel Brighton is a redone 19th-century building right in the heart of Paris's 1st arrondissement, very close to Tuileries, the Louvre, and most of Paris's top tourist attractions. Business travelers and tourists will both find this upscale hotel ideally located and atmospheric; the strong old Paris vibe is enhanced by the hotel's antique furnishings and paintings, but also fun, with bright, modern pops of color to remind guests this is a 21st century establishment. Just note that there may be a wait for the elevator, and the hotel lacks property features some may expect from this category, such as a fitness center and full-service restaurant.

Hotel Duc De Saint-Simon

Hotel Duc De Saint-Simon Rating: 4.0 Pearls

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. Comfortable rooms come in three sizes: Classic, Superior, or Suite, and -- like other areas of the hotel -- are decorated in rich fabrics and antique furniture (even the keys are antique). Room perks include flat-screen TVs, large bathrooms (by European standards), and plush bathrobes. Some rooms offer a private terrace or balcony, providing a nice spot to enjoy a glass of champagne from the hotel's impressive wine list.

Hotel Baltimore Paris

Hotel Baltimore Paris Rating: 4.0 Pearls

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, and the bathrooms are clean and more spacious than at other Parisian hotels. Guests can make use of the fitness center, though it's extremely small. But perhaps the greatest perk of Hotel Baltimore is the on-site restaurant -- La Table du Baltimore, a Michelin-starred French bistro.

Hotel d'Aubusson

Hotel d'Aubusson Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The 49-room Hotel d'Aubusson is a luxury boutique hotel in what was formerly a 17th-century stately home. Located in Saint-Germain des Pres, the Hotel d'Aubusson epitomizes the Paris experience, with its elegant courtyard garden and intellectual past. The hotel has a literary tradition stretching back to the 1700s, when it began drawing coffee-sipping writers and intellectuals, and continuing to this day with weekly literary talks. Rooms are stylish and sophisticated, with Hermes toiletries, sumptuous textiles, and cool modernist takes on canopy beds. The Hotel d’Aubusson is the place to stay for an unforgettable Paris holiday.

La Maison Favart

La Maison Favart Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This upscale, 30-room boutique hotel is one of the best choices in Paris, and offers surprisingly competitive rates for the level of luxury. It is named for the founder of the Opera Comique across the street, and the decor blends influences of the 18th century theater with modern trends. Rooms are chic and sport colorful accents, as well as thoughtful amenities such as iPod docks, bathrobes, towel warmers, and flat-screen TVs with free movies. Several metro lines are nearby, and popular sights such as the Louvre are within walking distance. Just note that the (excellent) breakfast buffet is an extra fee, and that the Classic Rooms are quite small.
