Cour des Vosges
What it is
A 17th century chateaux still rich with tapestries and ornate woodwork transformed into a modern 12 room boutique hotel with all the trimmings (including a Roman bath).
What it isn't
Lacking a view. Each guestroom peeps out on Place des Vosges, a storied park built in 1605 flanked by equally storied homes (Victor Hugo once lived here).
What we think
When designers Yann Le Coadic & Alessandro Scotto were enlisted to decorate this age-old structure, they kept the historic (exposed beams, terra cotta floors) while adding plenty of 21st century allure—including sculptural marble vanities, hidden LED lighting and artful stainless steel headboards. Every guest room is stunning (and begins at 312 square feet), but for an Emily in Paris Grows Up experience, you want a 484-square-foot Deluxe Suite overlooking Place des Vosges. Yours for your stay: a stainless four post bed, deep soaking tub, and Guerlain toiletries. Whichever room you pick, you’ll love the art that seems to adorn every inch of the place; the property hired art curator and gallerist Amélie du Chalard to ensure aesthetic excellence.
You're here because
The hotel has a blissful secret: a subterranean Roman bath under a vaulted ceiling that’s a restorative dream for the jetlagged.
Your local coffee shop home will never be the same after a morning at the hotel’s patisserie, helmed by Yann Brys, Meilleur Ouvrier de France. If it’s wrong to start your day with a mille feuille, you don’t want to be right.
