Paris is one of the most visited cities in the world, but that doesn’t mean you need to experience it like a tourist. We know our readers have excellent taste and busy schedules, so we’ve organized our top Paris recommendations in the list below.

 

Where to Stay

The view of the Eiffel Tower Paris and rooftops from the shower window at the luxury hotel Le Bristol Paris Hotel

Le Bristol Paris
This is one of our all-time favorite destination hotels in Europe. We stayed with them just before the pandemic in December 2019 and we recently revisited the property again in the spring. This hotel is part of the Oetker Collection, a small family-owned group of a handful of the best hotels in the world. The group’s focus is on luxury and service and Le Bristol is located in the heart of the design and shopping districts, just steps from Champs Elysées and La Madeleine Place. Le Bristol Paris is particularly interesting for people who love food. It offers both three-star and one-star restaurants, as well as a group chocolaterie, fromagerie, and cave. They are the only hotel in the world to grind their own flour daily for all of the bread and pastries produced in-house. It can be child-friendly and has a pool on the top floor with an amazing view of the city. Go here if you’re looking for a bit of luxury in Paris and be sure to book your La Prairie spa treatment ahead of time as the spa can book up quickly. See more from our stay at Le Bristol Paris.

Sinner Paris
For a totally different vibe, we stayed here for a weekend to check out this newer hotel located in the Upper Marais. You’ll find a younger, hip crowd with DJs at night, fog machines, and decor that’s focused on the more…romantic side of Paris. While still considered a luxury hotel, it’s very different in the service, style, and price point of Le Bristol. The rooms seem larger and more modern than most traditional Parisian hotels. We wouldn’t suggest having dinner at the hotel but they offer a fantastic brunch on the weekends and the nightlife is worth stopping in for after dinner. See more from our stay at Sinner Paris
