Our Top Picks | Paris Hotels


Over the past few years it seems that renting an apartment for your trip to Paris has been the thing to do. Lots of great apartment rental agencies like Perfectly Paris, Haven in Paris and the fabulous Time & Place luxury rentals that we work with provide all of the comfort of a hotel with the experience of exploring Paris like a true Parisian.

With the explosion of these rental agencies as well as the saturated rental market with AirBnB in Paris, some hotels are upping your game to provide high design and comfort with their rooms as well as a level of service that many apartment rental agencies are struggling to keep up with.

Here are our picks for hotels in Paris for every occasion:

CitizenM Paris Charles de Gaulle | Best Airport Hotel

“Stay in a hotel with soul. And nice pillows” is what you will see on the CitizenM website and this trendy hotel does indeed have soul. With all of the comforts of a 5 star hotel, it’s the little things that really make CitizenM a top pick. From their custom “MoodPad” to modern, artsy and sometimes a bit quirky style to their unwavering sense of humor. Perfect for a Paris lay-over or a one-night stop for an early AM flight.
