Hyatt Regency Paris-Madeleine
Built around 1850 by famed city planner Baron Georges Haussman, this seven-story boutique hotel just a short walk from the Place de la Madeleine unites early 1900's charm with five-star amenities. Feet from the Right Bank's fashionable finance and shopping district, the Hyatt Regency Paris features a dramatic skylight-lit lobby adjacent to an atrium Chinese lounge warmed by a fireplace. The hotel's 86 rooms have an elegant period feel: Marble bathrooms, antique furnishings, and fine linens are standard. A jazzy on-site restaurant, Cafe M, serves traditional and contemporary French cuisine in a space adorned with black-and-white photography of old Paris.
