Thanks to recent renovations, the city’s top suites have never been more beautiful or more luxurious. From penthouse perches offering incredible views to Empire-style suites that have housed royalty, we scoured the City of Light for the eight best rooms to stay in now.

Le Royal Monceau Paris: Raffles Presidential Suite

Located via a separate entrance, the suites at Le Royal Monceau offer guests their own apartment in Paris. The building offers five floors of suites, but the crème-de-la-crème is the Raffles Presidential Suite, which takes up the entire third floor and blends Parisian elegance—think parquet floors and wall sconces—with contemporary flair courtesy of designer Philippe Starck. Mirrored tables dot the space and the bedrooms feature oversized upholstered headboard beds framed in silver. The three-bedroom apartment also offers a modern stainless steel kitchen, a private gym and butler service can be arranged. In the large bathroom with a clawfoot bathtub, guests will find Clarins skincare and an organic line by Bonpoint just for kids; but if you still need more pampering, just head down to the hotel’s award winning Spa MyBlend By Clarins where you’ll find a pool, sauna and fitness center.

$25,000 per night; 33-1/42-99-88-00; leroyalmonceau.com.
