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 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.

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.

Hotel Montalembert

Hotel Montalembert Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This oh-so-chic boutique hotel in the heart of Saint Germain's shopping district has 56 rooms and suites in a Parisian house-like setting. Exuding a posh atmosphere (with prices to match), Montalembert's decor combines high design with an understated palette of black, taupe, gray and bronze. The gourmet restaurant changes its menu monthly and has a sidewalk terrace -- perfect for people-watching in warmer months. In cooler months, the Library Bar is a cozy spot for impromptu meetings by the fireplace. Rooms are stylish with original artwork on the walls, striped carpets and crisp linens. Amenities include flat-screen TVs and iPod/iPad docks, bathrobes and toiletries from L'Occitane (suites come with Nespresso machines.) Breakfast, for a fee, can be served in the breakfast room or in rooms upon request. There is not a spa on-site, but higher-tier rooms can schedule in-room massages. The hotel is dog-friendly, and Wi-Fi is free.

Hotel Du Louvre

Hotel Du Louvre Rating: 4.0 Pearls

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. The bathrooms are clean and modern with sharp lines; for Europe, the space is fairly big, and towel warmers in each are a comfy perk. The hotel features a restaurant, Le Louvre Brasserie Restaurant, which is a nice place to people-watch while dining outside. 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.

InterContinental Paris Avenue Marceau

InterContinental Paris Avenue Marceau Rating: 4.0 Pearls

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. Rooms are modern and bright, with red accents, black and white ceiling murals, iPod/iPad docks, mini-fridges, coffeemakers, and flat-screen TVs. Bathrooms -- also impressive -- include sliding doors, deep sinks, shower/tub combos and Hermes toiletries. A number of features were provided with business travelers in mind, including the high-tech meeting space and business corner, which are decorated with hip wall murals and atmospheric lighting. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout.

Saint James Paris

Saint James Paris Rating: 4.0 Pearls

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. And there's also a small fitness center, a spa, and a gourmet restaurant. The rates here are steep, but guests who want to experience luxury in Paris (and can afford it) should give the Saint James a look.
