This included L’Hotel du Collectionneur Paris, Cheval Blanc Paris, Hôtel Barrière Le Fouquet's, and Esprit Saint Germain. Each of these possesses unique and distinctive features that set them apart and make for the perfect stay depending on clients preferences and are my pick for the best places to stay in Paris.
