Parisian Hideaways
“For the side of Paris often hidden to tourists,
there can be no better guide for places to stay and
the often unheralded neighborhoods that
surround them.” —Bob Morris, author of Assisted Loving

Parisian Hideaways

Exquisite Rooms in Enchanting Hotels

In a Nutshell

An insider’s selection of thirty quintessentially Parisian hotels, chosen for their interior design, authenticity, panache, and personalized service. Grouped by theme—including literary, historic, and boudoir—the hotels present an enticing range of décor, from the timeless splendor of the Raphael, with its incomparable view of the Arch de Triomphe from its lush rooftop garden restaurant, to the minimalist verve of Hotel le A, off the Faubourg Saint-Honoré, where graphic black-and-white décor harmonize with Gallic élan. Each is unique, yet all share in common family or manager ownership, fewer than 100 rooms, generous room size, and very distinctive French style. With lush color photography and in-depth descriptions of each hotel, including a list of neighborhood restaurants, boutiques, gourmet treats, curiosities, or walking tours, Parisian Hideaways is a must for anyone longing to escape to or be inspired by the City of Lights.
