Hôtel Crayon Review
Managed by artists, this hotel near the Louvre and Palais-Royal distinguishes itself with an eclectic pop-art decor—expect a unusual canvas of local and international guests that's just as colorful. Look for the oversize pencil against handpainted graffiti walls and curious mix of modern objets d'art. Rooms are quiet havens in a somewhat overwhelming palette of bold purples, reds, and blue. Expect walk-in showers, designer toiletries, adjustable beds, flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi, but not overly spacious bathrooms or closets. The suite has a free-standing clawfoot bathtub. Offering an honesty bar, the lobby-lounge has shelves of books to read or exchange.
