As a Parisian (proud and loud!), I very often get questions about which hotel I recommend to stay when visiting Paris, and eventually doing photo shoots.
Today I’d like to share with you my favorite places to stay in the city as well as the reasons why they are so great, in my opinion.
Some are great to stay with your girlfriends for a fun trip, other to stay with you love one for a romantic trip and some have very romantic rooms for “getting ready” photos!
If you want to have a personalized welcome in any of these hotels let me know and I will introduce you to them directly; that way you are guaranteed to have the best service, a gift when checking in and possibly an upgrade.
