Ultra-luxurious: Hôtel

Ultra-luxurious: Hôtel du Rond Point des Champs Elysées, just a few minutes away from the Metro station Franklin D Roosevelt is this very elegant Louis Vuitton owned hotel in a 17th century building. From the minute you walk through the doors of this hotel, you’ll feel utterly charmed. The staff are lovely and that’s key to having a great stay. The rooms are fabulous as you’d expect from a hotel owned by one of the world’s premier style companies. Some rooms have a view over the Eiffel Tower and the rooftops of Paris (ask when you book – all the staff speak English). Comfy beds, gorgeous striped wallpaper and very posh loos (all electric with warmed seats and all that jazz). There’s a stunning swimming pool so – take your costume or you’ll really miss out. Elegant and glamorous: Hotel de Sers in an 18th century, former nobleman’s mansion, a stone’s throw from the Champs- Elysées is next to the legendary George V and less than a mile from the Eiffel Tower has the location, the looks and the luxury without the massive price tag to go with them. It certainly isn’t a budget hotel but for the price compared to other 5 Star hotels in this part of Paris – it’s a real find. It is stylish and smart, the décor is elegant and inspired with a real touch of old school style glamour. The spa there is open to residents only, after a long day’s sightseeing, it's a real pick me up to be able to have a sauna and a massage. Most of the rooms have terraces and glass conservatories where you can sit and look out over the roof tops of Paris whatever the weather; the top apartment has a big terrace with a view over the Eiffel Tower.

Discreet, refined luxury: The Hotel Marignan Champs- Elysées in an 18th century building a stone’s throw from the Champs-Elysées is pure luxury, from the entrance with its smart doorman to the dining room with its modern trompe l’oeil, bar with comfy chairs and a grand piano and rooms that are elegantly decorated. Though it’s right in the heart of Paris, this is a little oasis of tranquillity and pleasure. There are rooms with a view of the Eiffel Tower, de-luxe suites and a fabulous restaurant.
