A staple on the French hotel scene, the Prince de Galles has been open since 1929 and its Art Deco vibes contribute to its sophisticated French luxury design scheme.

Reopened in June 2019 after an extensive renovation, Hyatt’s Hotel du Louvre features 106 rooms and 58 suites, all luminous, with high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows. Design touches like a glass Mona Lisa art installation and a special suite dedicated to painter Camille Pissarro remind you that you’re directly across the street from one of the world’s most iconic art museums (if the name of the hotel didn’t already clue you in).

Room rates start at $437 or 25,000 Hyatt points per night.
Even though Hilton boasts a second Parisian Curio Collection property (the historic Maison Astor), the 52-room boutique-style Niepce Paris Hotel is truly the hidden gem. We can’t help but love a hotel dedicated to plastering the influential female photographer Janine Niepce’s stunning shots throughout — even on the ceilings.
Room rates start at $263 or 69,000 Honors points per night.
Another Parisian Luxury Collection property, Hotel Berri, opened in 2018, is a sight to behold — think endless marble, a private art collection and handcrafted statues. With guest rooms featuring design elements like jewel-toned velvet settees, canopy beds and Diptyque amenities, a stay at Hotel Berri is an artistic and cosmopolitan experience.
Room rates start at $564 or 70,000 Bonvoy points per night.
Hyatt has several luxury properties in Paris, but the Hotel Grand Paris is decidedly Parisian chic. The property effortlessly gives off an intimate vibe that larger brand chain hotels are normally unable to offer, making for a one-of-a-kind stay. The 50 guestrooms and suites come in colors such as powder pink, celadon green or blue, while furniture and fabric choices are delightfully juxtaposed: marble with velvet, oak with brass, lacquer with silk.
Room rates start at $483 or 25,000 Hyatt points per night.
One look at the sexy cabanas and relaxing loungers at the MUSE pool and you’ll be itching for a sun-filled summer holiday.

Room rates start at $458 or 40,000 Hyatt points per night.
The recently refurbished Radisson Blu Hotel in Nice is set on the sun-soaked Promenade des Anglais. Many of the guest rooms have sea views and the property also has its own private beach. But the best amenity is the rooftop pool and terrace, a chic scene that offers incredible views and delicious cocktails and bites.
Room rates start at $145 or 70,000 Radisson points per night.
A refurbished 15th-century property, this quaint hotel’s rooms feature design elements like fireplaces, wooden walls, geometric French ceilings and French tiling.

Since you can’t spend the night at the Palace of Versailles, the Waldorf Astoria Versailles Trianon Palace by Hilton is the next best thing. The hotel, which is just a short walk away from Versailles, features artfully landscaped gardens, regal guest rooms (some suites even have private lifts and hidden staircases), an indoor pool and Michelin-starred dining options by Gordon Ramsay.
Room rates start at $300 or 64,000 Honors points per night.
No French hotel list would be complete without featuring a chateau (a French castle) — and this particular one, the Grand Barrail, is not only set on a beautiful vineyard but also home to a rejuvenating spa. Soak up the sun on the hotel’s beautiful patio or admire the opulent chandeliers and stained glass of the chateau’s interior.
Room rates start at $295 or 25,000 Hyatt points per night. Note that the hotel will be closed until March 1, 2022, for renovations.
