Paris, the world's undisputed City of Love, has no shortage of romantic spots to woo and be wooed in. Among the many places that set the lovey-dovey mood are hotels with crackling fireplaces. We scoured the French capital to find the best properties where -- at least during the cooler winter months -- you'll be greeted with the lovely warm glow and instant ambience of a roaring flame. Take a look at our picks below.

Throughout the winter months, guests can relax in front of a roaring fire in the lounge, which opens onto a pretty cobbled terrace and has a well-stocked honesty bar and free snacks. Despite the lack of an on-site restaurant, the hotel's relaxed atmosphere, fantastic location, and free parking make it a top pick in this area of the city.
