Paris Hotel Needed: Details on what I am looking for inside...

I am helping a friend plan his 10th anniversary trip to Paris to surprise his wife. He is looking for a hotel in the 5th, 6th or 7th, romantic (obviously...), private bathroom. They are 30 somethings who like living the fine lifestyle, but have a budget of $200-$250/night (US dollars). His wife loves art, fashion and anything "cool." Any thoughts?

So the hotel your friend is looking for is more romantic than "cool"? Or more "cool" than romantic or both?

Hotel Artus in the 6th, but it may be over that budget nowadays.

With the budget your friend have, he can go in a very good hotel...I saw one in the 6th, which looks like very romantic and ifhis wife likes art, it will be Ok because the decoration looks really art-related. It is called the Hotel Left Bank Saint Germain. You can give the website to your friend in order that he discovers it: www.leftbankstgermain.com..He even can book on-line...!!!

Try Le Walt in the 7th. It is relatively new, but I think there were some posts on tripadvisor.com. I have seen the rooms but not stayed there.The owner's husband was a former director of Le Crillon . Each room has its own huge painting over the bed. The baths are nicely appointed. The hotel is contemporary with hard wood floors, there is a nice courtyard to have drinks or breakfast. They also have their own restaurant.It is near the metro, bus and cabs. The neighborhood has a wonderful selection of restaurants. It might be a little high, but it doesn't hurt to inquire especially if it is when things are slow.

Look into the Caron de Beaumarchais in the Marais--4th arrondissement.
The area is very cool, the hotel is universally praised, rooms on the small side, but lots of charm, but it's old-world charm.

I just checked the www.parischarminghotels.net site and LE Walt will fall into your budget and it is a 4 star. There are also some pictures. I also some some special rates listed. They have their own website but are not offering discounts on it.
