Marriott Hotel Paris
Marriott: 4-star in Paris

4-star hotels in Paris are numerous, and vary enormously in both quality and price. The key thing to remember about the star system is that the number allocated isn't a measure of how good a hotel is, but measures the hotel facilities and services it provides.

A 4 or 5-star hotel in Paris means guest rooms are 16 square metres including bathrooms for 4-star hotels and 24 square metres including bathroom for a 5-star hotel. For hotels with more than 30 rooms, the reception desk must be open 24-hrs a day.

What to expect from 4 and 5-star hotels in Paris?

Differences between 4 and 5-star hotels in Paris are not obvious at first. 4-star hotels will most often give you a very similar quality of experience to a 5-star hotel. If anything, you might say that 4-star hotels might offer more unusual interior design schemes, with themed hotels not being uncommon, but there are plenty of 'tradional/classical' 4-star hotels to choose from too.

For 5-star hotels, staff must be able to speak two foreign languages including English. Five-star hotels are also required to provide room service, valet parking, a concierge and, upon check-in, guests must be escorted to their rooms. Air conditioning is required.

The palace designation can only be awarded to 5-star hotels. It recognises hotels that are exceptional in several ways, such as having a Michelin starred restaurant, exceptional service by a greater number of employees than are required in 5-star hotels or exceptional amenities such as an on-site spa.

Luxury hotel districts in Paris

The most sought after areas for leisure visitors are around the Champs-Elysees, Louvre, Opera Garnier and St Germain area of the Left Bank. You pay a sizable price premium for a hotel in any of these districts as you will see from the indicative prices of the hotels featured below.

Paris has an excellent public transport system that is very affordable. For the small inconvenience of ten minutes on the Metro, you can reduce your hotel costs substantially, and still find yourself enjoying a luxurious 4-star hotel experience.

For those looking for a budget hotel district around some of the main railway stations in Paris are particularly fruitful for value accommodation. Gare Du Nord, Gare de L'est, Gare de Lyon and Montparnasse are notable. If any of these are your arrival gateways in Paris, they are probably your benchmark district to check out. For those flying into Paris, all of the stations have very good links to the airports.

These railway stations are also public transport hubs with multiple Metro lines that will get you to wherever you want to go in Paris quickly and cheaply.

Other major affordable mid-range hotel districts are Grands Boulevards and around Bastille/Republique, just east of The Marais district.

Hotel districts cheaper at weekends & holidays (August)

Room rates reflect demand and in this computer age room rates are not fixed, what you pay reflects how hard the hotel finds it to get customers.

In districts sought out by leisure visitors there tends to be a premium for rates at the weekend. Conversely business districts struggle at the weekends as their core market disappears. A the weekend probably the best two districts for value for money are the La Defense and Bercy districts. Neither is central but both have fast Metro and RER links that will get you to the centre in 20 minutes and save you a bundle.

August is the quietest month of year as most of the Parisians flee Paris and business grinds to a stop. Again the business districts are very cheap all of August.
