What it is
An ultra-stylish respite in a revamped Neoclassical building with a buzzing bar, restaurant in a gleaming library, and blissful spa with a Turkish hammam and pool.
What it isn't
Ginormous. This is the ultimate version of a boutique hotel, with 48 rooms and 5 suites…all as beautifully curated as the Louvre, and many with Eiffel Tower views.
What we think
If you consider it a crime to stay in a new build in a city like Paris, Hotel Bowmann may just be your spot. The gilded woodwork here is just as fanciful as what you’ll find at the Ritz Paris, even in the intimate 236 square foot Bowmann City or Garden View, where the quarters would satisfy even Marie Antoinette. In the gilt adorned guest room? A glowing spa-like bathroom, thoughtful pillow menu, custom furniture, espresso machine and tea selection, and desk for the most envy-inducing Zoom calls ever. If you’re not in Paris often, book the Bowmann Penthouse Suite with Panoramic Terrace; it has an expansive living room and 360-degree views of Paris (including the Eiffel Tower) plus a jacuzzi for taking in the view in style on the private terrace. Oui, oui.
You're here because
Indoor swimming pools can be hard to find in Paris, and this one is an Instagrammable vision of sapphire blue water in a glowing, modernist space.
Paris has no shortage of divine restaurants, but tonight, there’s nowhere you’d rather be than the hotel’s watering hole—with its gnocchi in truffle sauce and French fries served with a knife. How do you say “heavenly” in French?
