Hôtel Brighton Review
A few of the city's most prestigious hotels face the Tuileries or Place de la Concorde, but the 19th-century Brighton occupies the same prime real estate and offers a privileged stay for a fraction of the price. The entry is modest compared to grande dames down the road, but don't let the geometric carpeting and modern furniture fool you. Rooms exude a classic elegance, blending antiques with comfortable square footage. While many are handsomely decorated with grey woolen throws and oversize royal blue pillows, others (like #407) offer quintessential Parisian charm with pretty floral patterns and a marble fireplace. The smallest rooms overlook the courtyard; larger ones have a magnificent view of the gardens. Nearly all have flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, and heated towel racks in spacious bathrooms. Relax in the first floor bar and lounge surrounded by marble columns, mirrored walls, and contemporary furnishings—try the haute-patisserie by renowned French chef Philippe Conticini featured on the salon du thé menu.
