16th Arrondissement Hotels
5 Place du Chancelier Adenauer, 16th
Tucked away in the quiet and leafy 16th near the Champs-Élysées, the Saint James, located in a century-old château, offers a jolt of luxury with its palatial interior, glorious garden, and Michelin-starred restaurant. With its leopard-print carpets and explosions of color and pattern—both in the lobby and in each individually decorated room—it can feel a bit like a country retreat on steroids. This is a Relais & Châteaux property, so expect all the traditional bells and whistles.
10 Ave. d'Iéna, 16th
Beyond the stunning views, the attention to detail is meticulous here, resulting in a luxurious and wonderful stay. More importantly (and unsurprisingly), two of the three on-site restaurants (Shang Palace, L’Abeille) boast Michelin stars.
19 Ave. Kléber, 16th
The Peninsula’s grand outpost in Paris delivers all the luxurious elegance we’ve come to expect from the brand. Housed in a 19th-century building perfectly suited to its style (it opened as a grand hotel back in 1908), the Peninsula is the kind of place where you can trust that no detail is spared—you’ll find enormous bouquets of fresh roses on every spare surface, an extremely attentive staff, and a guaranteed good night’s sleep in their beds. While the spa, bar, and main dining rooms are lovely, our favorite spot is the rooftop restaurant, which offers a stunning view of the Eiffel Tower.
