The Best Hotel Suites to Book in Paris

Perhaps even better than a stay in an actual palace is a night spent in a luxury suite in one of Paris’ “Palace” hotels—a designation awarded to only the finest hotels in France. 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.

Four Seasons George V: The Penthouse Apartment

Since a renovation in 2012, the elegant Four Seasons George V has set the gold standard in Parisian “Palace” hotels and the hotel’s 8th floor Penthouse Apartment is one of the finest in the city. The Pierre Yves Rochon-designed suite includes the utmost in luxury—Baccarat crystal and a plasma screen TV concealed by a black mirror—plus personal touches like a bookcase filled with antique books that make the place feel like your own pied-a-terre in Paris. Rochon’s choice of a soothing pastel and gold color palette and natural materials like travertine and sycamore create a calm and serene atmosphere. The light and airy suite features several terraces—a main terrace shaped like the bow of a ship with manicured box trees and a smaller terrace off the master bedroom with a four-poster daybed. Behind a wrought iron door lies an indoor sanctuary known as a winter garden, with a marble mosaic floor and floral fabric walls where you can feel like you’re dining alfresco without leaving the cozy confines of the apartment.
