Hôtel Westminster Review
On one of the most prestigious streets in Paris, between the Opéra and Place Vendôme, this mid-19th-century inn happily retains its old-world feel. Spacious rooms are decorated with period furniture, marble fireplaces, crystal chandeliers, and oil paintings. Duke's piano bar is a pleasant rendezvous spot, and the hotel's gourmet restaurant, Le Céladon, serves decent French cuisine. The fitness center has a Moorish-inspired steam room and views over Paris's rooftops. The service and appointments aren't what you'd get at the neighboring grande dame hotels, but you do share a prime piece of real estate.
