2.Hôtel de Crillon, A Rosewood Hote

Reopening in July 2017 after undergoing an extensive four-year renovation, the Hôtel de Crillon – which sits by the Place de la Concorde in Paris' 8th arrondissement – impresses visitors with its French neoclassical details (think: Baccarat chandeliers and Coustou sculptures). In fact, one former guest called this historic property a "fairytale." But this Rosewood outpost's elegant interior is not its only standout feature. Many previous lodgers appreciated the hotel's "fabulous" service and comfortable accommodations. All 124 guest rooms and suites boast neutral tones and custom artwork, plus high-end touches like butler service, Nespresso coffee machines and beds dressed in Drouault duvets and Rivolta Carmignani linens. Standard rooms overlook the property's courtyard, while signature suites come with up to 3,768 square feet of space and offer breathtaking views of Paris landmarks like the Eiffel Tower and the Musée d'Orsay. Several recent travelers also heaped praise on the property's dining establishments. L'Ecrin serves modern dishes concocted by acclaimed chef Christopher Hache, and Brasserie d'Aumont features French fare made with locally sourced ingredients. Other amenities available here include a spa, an indoor swimming pool, a barbershop and a bar with more than 100 kinds of Champagne.

2.La Réserve Paris – Hotel and Spa

The 15 rooms and 25 suites at La Réserve Paris – Hotel and Spa are chicly decorated in a 19th-century Parisian style that includes brocade taffeta, velvet drapes, herringbone oak parquet floors, antique furniture and bathrooms made with both Carrara and Turquin marble. Modern amenities, such as interactive tablets that control each room's lighting, TV and temperature, and buttons that summon private butlers, are also provided in all spaces. If you desire Eiffel Tower views and extra perks like a balcony, two private bars and a wine cellar, consider upgrading to the Grand Palais Suite. Recent guests were floored by the personalized service offered throughout the hotel, stating that every staff member seemed ready and willing to go above and beyond to make their stays enjoyable. The two-starred Michelin restaurant, Le Gabriel, also received high praise from past diners for its seasonal French cuisine. Just be sure to make a reservation in advance since tables here fill up quickly. And Leaders Club members are in luck – as part of The Leading Hotels of the World, this property grants perks like welcome gifts and upgrades. The hotel's central address in Paris near the famed Champs-Élysées' high-end shops was another highlight for previous visitors.

3.Hôtel Plaza Athénée

Hôtel Plaza Athénée is the stuff of Parisian dreams, with chandelier-clad dining rooms, foliage-filled courtyards and elegant rooms, each decorated with crown molding and pops of bright pastels. Although the hotel exudes European charm, its quaint atmosphere doesn't mean amenities are few and far between. The property boasts five restaurants, ranging from chic and casual to downright fine dining, including the Roaring '20s-inspired Le Relais Plaza. The hotel also has a spa and 24-hour concierge service, in addition to on-call chauffeur-driven transportation. But travelers may find that a car simply isn't needed: Hôtel Plaza Athénée's location blocks away from the Seine puts lodgers within a 1-mile radius of the Eiffel Tower, Champs-Élysées and the Louvre. And though the address and amenities left travelers in awe, it was the hotel's incredible service and attentive staff that made the biggest impression. Just note, all of these luxuries equate to sky-high room rates. 

4.Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris

The Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris is situated just three blocks south of the famed Champs-Élysées in the western part of the 8ème arrondissement. But the prime location is just one of the property's high points. Once inside, you'll find 18th-century decor, warm hospitality and comfortable accommodations. Though some travelers note guest rooms and suites are a little outdated compared to other high-end properties, most praise the 244 accommodations for being clean and spacious. For views of iconic attractions like the Eiffel Tower and the Palais Garnier, consider upgrading to one of the hotel's suites. No matter which accommodation you choose, you'll enjoy amenities like complimentary Wi-Fi, espresso machines and minibars. Before you head off-site to explore Paris, grab a bite in one of the property's three restaurants; all three eateries have recieved Michelin stars and earn rave reviews from diners. If you can only make time for one venue, book a dinner reservation well in advance at the three Michelin-starred Le Cinq, where contemporary French dishes are served..

5.Ritz Paris

Located in Paris' 1er arrondissement within walking distance of the Place Vendôme and the Palais Garnier, the historic Ritz Paris invites guests in with its top-notch service and upscale, 18th-century Parisian design. Guest rooms – or apartments, as they're called by this hotel – feature neutral color palettes with gold accents, chandeliers and fireplaces, while standard suites offer additional living space. If you desire views of the surrounding city, upgrade to one of the property's Prestige Suites. Each honors a Parisian landmark, time period or well-known individual. Noteworthy suites include the Suite Impériale, which is listed as a historic monument, and the Suite Coco Chanel, the former Parisian home of the famous designer. After settling into your accommodations, which were part of a nearly four-year renovation of the property that finished in 2016, previous guests recommend grabbing a cocktail in Bar Hemingway or a meal at L'Espadon. You can also take a pastry or gastronomy course through the hotel's cooking school. Or, if you'd rather lounge poolside or relax during a massage, visit the Ritz Club Paris spa. Part of The Leading Hotels of the World, the property participates in the Leaders Club loyalty program.
