Our Map to the Stars – 5-Star Luxury Hotels in Paris

Imagine a "golden arc" starting at the Louvre and looping westward to Avenue George V. That's where you'll find our selection of seven of the very best 5-star hotels in Paris — in the very best location.

Using our exclusive map come with us on a virtual journey through Paris luxury.

For this area of the city, in the 1st and 8th Arrondissements, pretty much defines Parisian luxury…and more than only in accommodations.

In addition to our recommended 5-star hotels the golden arc also boasts luxury shopping along Rue Saint-Honoré, the parkland along Champs Elysées, the Louis Vuitton flagship store (also on Champs Elysées) and, of course, the bevy of luxe stores on the tony Avenue Montaigne.

Our route starts in the lower right corner of the map, in the Paris Classic Triangle (to give it a name!) formed by the Louvre, Jardin des Tuileries, and the Palais Royal. That's where you'll find the Hotel du Louvre.

Walking west along Rue Saint-Honoré we take a left on Rue des Pyramides to find the elegant Regina Hotel, another one of our 5-star hotel faves.

Since we're now on Rue de Rivoli, let's continue west alongside the Jardin des Tuileries to Place de la Concorde to visit Hotel de Crillon.

Walk up Rue Boissey d'Anglais that runs alongside Hotel de Crillon and take a left on Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré (which means, roughly, "Saint Honoré Suburbs Street", meaning it's a continuation of Rue Saint-Honoré through an area that was once outside of what was then central Paris). After a few blocks you come to Hotel Bristol.

Continue strolling west along Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré until you come to Rue de Berri, where you take a left towards Champs Elysées, passing by Hotel Lancaster.

Cross over Champs Elysées and find Avenue George V where the George V Hotel Paris is located.

South along Avenue George V you come to Rue du Boccador, which angles away to the luxe shopping street, Avenue Montaigne, and the last of our 5-star hotels, Hotel Plaza Athenée Paris.
