Celine Dion and Kylie Minogue were guests during our visit to this upscale Paris hotspot to the Stars. Fortunately, the 100+ person crowd gathered outside the front door and the others milling about the lobby didn't prevent us from a peek inside.Price: Expensive
L'Hotel bestows many unique benefits upon its privileged guests which makes it one of our favorite properties. Its most appealing feature may not even be located on property, an across-the-street location from beautiful Parc Monceau.Price: Expensive
Novotel is our favorite Montparnasse hotel as it impresses with a modern accommodation, comfortable rooms, a tasty breakfast spread, and a useful hotel gym. The colorful lobby will put a smile on your face and the visually appealing restaurant should also satisfy your hunger.Price: Moderately Expensive

Only a few blocks from the Champs Elysees, this boutique, 86-room Hyatt enjoys a central location and is a welcome departure from the hotelier's more typical grandiose, business-like properties.

We recommend Le Meridian E'toile primarily for those in search a convenient abode while in town for meetings and/or convention business in the immediate vicinity. The hotel faces the convention center; and the Champs Elysees and Arc de Triomphe are not far.Price: Moderately Expensive
The best feature of this popular business hotel is its wonderful location in the heart of Montparnasse, a section of Paris that is more local than touristy. Narrow streets, family-owned restaurants, weekend farmers' markets, and city parks, contribute to the area's low key Paris vibe.
For those travelers seeking a wallet-friendly accommodation near the center of Champs Elysees' action, Hotel California is a reasonable consideration. It's not upscale, impressive, or loaded with complimentary perks. Why recommend it?Price: Least Expensive
Hotel du Louvre is a fantastically located hotel for those desiring an abode convenient to the Paris landmarks. The Opera, River Seine, Champs Elysees, and of course, the Louvre Museum are all within a short walk.
We cover this hotel primarily for those needing/wanting to stay in this outlying part of Paris (Vaugirard is about 15-minutes walk beyond Montparnasse proper).Price: Least Expensive
La Defense is a district in Paris consisting of many imposing highrise office towers and bland concrete structures, vastly different from the tree-lined streets and quaint neighborhoods that characterize most other sections of the city.Price: Moderately Expensive
St. James Albany is a cheaper alternative for those wanting to stay in the heart of Paris' bustling tourist and cultural district. We would rather set up base in a more quiet and remote part of town, but we understand many prefer the convenience and buzz of being in the middle of it all.Price: Moderately Expensive
