Housed within a handsome limestone building with sinuous floral motifs, this grand historic hotel in Saint-Germain-des-Prés is the only five-star hotel on the Left Bank. Redesigned by architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte, the property’s stunning common areas include a main restaurant with a dramatic stained-glass ceiling, a brasserie helmed by star chef Gérald Passédat that offers seating in an intimate open-air courtyard, a cigar lounge and the very popular Bar Joséphine, which showcases restored art nouveau frescoes. Most of the 184 guest accommodations are appointed with rich leather furnishings, chocolate-brown herringbone floors and oyster-shell walls. The best lodgings feature balconies with distant views of the Eiffel Tower, and the signature Saint Germain Penthouse suite designed by filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola comes with a private rooftop terrace. The hotel's expansive spa contains a fitness center and swimming pool. Overall, the atmosphere of the property successfully distills the worldliness, style and history of the surrounding neighborhood.
