Paris is home to hundreds of hotels, some large luxury hotels and others quaint boutique hotels. Some of my favorites, where I suggest my friends and family to stay, are:
1. Le Relais Christine- this charming hotel is in Saint Germain, on the left bank, and has just a handful of rooms. Each room and suite at this hotel offers a home-like feel and all of the necessary amenities with a twist of luxury. Several of the rooms also open onto a private garden, a rarity in Paris, where guests are welcome to have breakfast or a pre-dinner glass of wine while enjoying the calm. The hotel also has a small spa and a cosy bar.

2. Hotel Arvor- I love this hotel for its location and its warm design. The interior is a mix between modern and vintage, giving it a artsy feel that makes you feel at home. The rooms are laid out like apartments throughout the building and are a great deal for the quality. They have a little restaurant downstairs for breakfast, and it's located just next to Saint Georges, a gorgeous area of Paris in the 9th arrondissement.

3. Hotel Paradis- This hotel was just recently re-designed by renowned interior designer Dorothée Meilichzon who also designed the bars and restaurants of the Experimental Cocktail Group in Paris. The 38 rooms in the hotel are modern and inviting, and the hotel is located not far from the major department stores, the opera, and the Folies Bergere.

4. Hotel Jules & Jim- A boutique hotel hidden on a little street in the Marais, the Jules & Jim is not only a hotel but also an art gallery. The cool blend of the loft-like design, the old stone walls and modern furnishings makes for a typically Marias atmosphere- cool but not pretentious. Their barman is there every night mixing up specialty cocktails and serving glasses of Moet & Chandon for guests and locals alike. The hotel also has rotating art exhibitions and movie screenings in their on-site theater room. Other exceptional services at the Hotel Jules & Jim are private Champagne cruises on the Seine and rides around Paris in a vintage DS!
