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.
