These seven hotels are among the most extravagant in the city, and, if you can afford it, will guarantee a stay you’ll never forget.

Lovingly restored to its 19th-century splendour, complete with ornate furniture and fittings, the room has views over the Louvre and the hotel’s charming Venus Courtyard. Guests are encouraged to make the most of the recently renovated wellness area, by relaxing in the hammam or sauna or hitting the gym, all of which are bathed in natural light.

The Grand Hotel du Palais Royal is an architectural wonder, housed as it is in a magnificent 18th-century building, parts of which are officially protected as a historic monument. Designer Pierre-Yves Rochon has tastefully re-imagined the interior to merge the heritage of the hotel with a modern, chic style. Many of the 68 rooms and suites have balconies with spectacular views of Paris, and, as a tribute to the nearby Jardin du Palais Royal, plants are a theme throughout, from the delightful winter garden to a fondness for light-coloured wood and hints of lime green in the fabrics.
