8. Hotel Lutetia
Hotel Lutetia is an iconic landmark situated in the vibrant St. Germain-des-Pres area of Paris and the only grand hotel on the left bank. This makes this hotel choice unusual and away from the majority of the luxury hotels in Paris.
Opened in 1910, the building was a daring move from art nouveau to the emerging style of art deco and remains a left bank icon. Ernest Hemingway, James Joyce, Picasso, Matisse, and Josephine Baker were among regular visitors.
A $100-million-plus beautification led by local architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte has resulted in a stylish property with natural light flooding into common spaces from a central courtyard, uncovered during the renovation. Delicate ceiling frescoes in the lobby and bar were liberated from beneath layers of paint, and an original glass ceiling, darkened by years of soot, sparkles in the Salon Saint Germain. While the room count decreased from 233 to 184, all are larger and reconfigured with Calacatta marble bathrooms, oak floors, and king-size beds. The Lutetia Brasserie is a highlight and is under the direction of three-Michelin-starred chef Gérald Passedat.
