Say hello to Paris and three of the city’s most magnificent hotels.

HOTEL: SHANGRI-LA HOTEL
LOCATION: TROCADERO
WHY IT’S AWESOME: GET THE ROYAL TREATMENT

Once the former home of Napoleon Bonaparte’s grandnephew, Prince Roland Bonaparte, the Shangri-La Hotel is one of the most luxurious hotels in Paris. But I’ll just let the photos do the talking.

You walk in past the lobby and your eyes don’t know where look next – marble floors and columns, sculptures and original ornate mouldings.

We explored the hotel for almost an hour, soaking in each room – each one telling a different story.

And then we came into this banquet room – quite possibly the most beautiful room I’ve ever been to in my life.

HOTEL: L’HOTEL
LOCATION: SAINT GERMAIN
WHY IT’S AWESOME: FULL OF OLD WORLD GLAMOUR; FOR THE ART ENTHUSIAST

Situated in the heart of the Left Bank, L’hotel was once home to Irish writer and poet Oscar Wilde. I felt like I had just stepped into a time machine, with the hotel oozing old world French glamour, surrounded by original artwork and ornate accent decor.

Enter, lobby.

The most magnificent part of this hotel was the spiral staircase, smothered in leopard, winding all the way down to the lobby.

You walk outside and you’re surrounded by art galleries. The hotel is on Rue Des Beaux-Arts – there are charming cafes, bookstores and designer shops everywhere. It’s quiet enough during the day (silent at night) in the neighborhood, perfect for sleeping in and cozying up with your loved ones. You’re also only a few blocks south of the Seine River, so a quick hop skip over the bridge (about a 4 minute walk) and you’re at the Louvre (READ: How I spent my first four days in Paris).

The rooms are moody, filled with antique furniture. It’s a tad bit dark, but doesn’t that just make the whole place that much more romantic?

Velvet bed. Cherry wood everything. The bathroom was just as glamorous, with a separate closet for la toilette.

The staff is attentive, polite and we were extremely well taken care of our entire stay.

HOTEL: HOTEL VERNEUIL
LOCATION: SAINT GERMAIN
WHY IT’S AWESOME: MODERN STYLE + CHARMING COMFORT

There was a sense of comfort walking into Hotel Verneuil. I don’t know if it was the cozy lobby or the bright, clean room we stayed in, but I found myself lazier and lazier the longer I stayed.

The rooms are clean, yet charming with a mix of modern touches and classic accents.

As soon as I hit the bed I did not want to get up.

I saw the bathroom, filled with L’Occitane products and did not want to leave.

Six hours later, I’m picking up my fringe key, take a minute to enjoy the breeze on the balcony, ready to explore the neighborhood of Saint Germain.
