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 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.

Hotel Royal Saint-Honore

Hotel Royal Saint-Honore Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Boasting a fabulous location just steps from Le Louvre Museum, this simple boutique hotel offers 72 rooms along the Rue Saint-Honore, a main street lined with designer boutiques and cafes. The rooms (and two-bedroom suites) are decorated with a modest elegance, and have flat-screen TVs, minibars, small desks, marble bathrooms, and bathrobes. But they're still a bit outdated -- no iPod docks here. There's a lobby lounge for afternoon cafe au laits and pre-dinner drinks, as well as a decent French restaurant -- bathed in red walls and mahogany furniture -- for all meals including breakfast (room service is available until 11 p.m.). It's a good pick for guests who want to be within walking distance to many attractions, and for business travelers too -- the hotel offers a business center, free Wi-Fi and ample meeting space.

Hotel Lumen Paris Louvre

Hotel Lumen Paris Louvre Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Hotel Lumen is a modern and chic boutique hotel in the fashionable 1st Arrondissement, within walking distance to the Louvre and several other must-see attractions. Though the hotel and rooms are small (as is typical of Parisian hotels), Hotel Lumen makes the most of its space: The hip lobby has funky chandeliers and furniture (including some Philippe Starck-like chairs), and the tight rooms have a posh look with velvet furniture, a warm gray-and-mauve color scheme, and luxe accents. However, decorative but not-very-efficient light fixtures mean the rooms are relatively dark. And the 1st Arrondissement is one of the most expensive neighborhoods in Paris, so rates here can be pricey.

Hotel Britannique

Hotel Britannique Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The 39-room Hotel Britannique is a charming, mid-range boutique property in the heart of Paris. It has a prime location in the 1st arrondissement within walking distance of major attractions such as the Louvre and Notre Dame Cathedral. Warm, cozy rooms have flat-screen TVs, double-glazed windows, upscale toiletries, and free Wi-Fi. The same homey decor is present in the common areas, including a lounge with comfortable couches and a laptop guests can use free of charge. The combination of reasonable prices, charm, and location make this one of the best values in the city.

Hotel du Lion d'Or

Hotel du Lion d'Or Rating: 2.5 Pearls

This 26-room basic but contemporary hotel is a stand-out choice for two reasons: reasonable room rates, and the location! The property is situated in the prime 1st arrondissement of Paris, within steps of Le Louvre and Tuileries Gardens; guests will be hard-pressed to find a more affordable option in this area. Though hotel itself certainly falls into the budget category, it's more modern than some may expect. Rooms are small and lack big hotel amenities, and some show wear and tear (we spotted a small hole in one wall), but they have fresh bedding, flat-screen TVs, small desks, and up-to-date bathrooms. Free Wi-Fi is available, sometimes, and a small business area can assist when it's down (which is often). For more living space, the hotel does offer apartments (studio, large flat and duplex size) that come with lounge/dining areas and full kitchens. This section of the hotel does not have an elevator so be prepared to climb. Guests can start the day with espresso and free newspapers in the stylish breakfast room decorated with exposed stone walls.
