A hotel stay can make or break a vacation. While friendly staff and early check-in can turn a trip from good to great, no AC and dated furniture can turn a trip from dreamy to dreary too quickly. If you’re dreaming of a romantic terrace overlooking the twinkling Eiffel Tower at night, staying at a chic boutique hotel with clever touches, or using miles and points to stay with your favorite brand in the city of lights, we’ve got you covered. Here are 10 of the best hotels for your 2023 Paris vacation.

A Note On Our Travel Style:

We settle for nothing less than:

  • Four or five-star hotels
  • Comfy bed(s)
  • Strong AC
  • Good Wi-Fi
  • Within walking distance from either a metro stop or a few must-see places
  • $120-$650 a night (depending on trip budget and vibe)

We’ve divided the recommendations by the most important factors that go into choosing the perfect hotel for your trip: the views, the vibes, or the brand (get and use those miles and points)! Luckily, many of the properties offer a little bit of everything. Happy planning! (Take us with you!)
