The glass-and-steel Renaissance Paris Arc de Triomphe stands out from many of its Parisian luxury-hotel peers thanks to designer Christian de Portzamparc’s rippled façade and sculpted windows. But views onto the city’s mansard roofs still allow guests to feel like they’re in classic postcard-perfect Paris. Spacious rooms come with floor-to-ceiling windows, plush bedding, and flat-screen TVs; Paris Sky View suites have balconies and views of the Eiffel Tower. Excellent restaurants, such as Mariages Frères tea and pastry shop and L’Ecluse Carnot, are just a stroll away. The hotel’s Makassar Restaurant and Lounge also makes savoring French cuisine easy, with a menu that includes a veal T-bone and a cheese bar featuring Comté, Beaufort, and truffle Brie. For some fresh air, you can join locals out for a jog in nearby Park Monceau.
