Celebrity Hot Spot Hotels in Paris

Paris isn’t just our favorite retreat, it’s also a favorite of a long list of celebrities. But, where do these celebrities prefer to stay during their stay in the City of Love? We’ve got answers!

George V

The George V has been a home away from home for celebrities in Paris for quite a while now. Back in the 60’s the Beatles had a famous pillow fight here, Michael Jackson frequented it in the 90’s, and more recently stars like Bruce Willis, Angelina Jolie, Demi Moore, and Kylie Minogue have been spotted there.

The Ritz Paris

Golden hotel rooms that look straight out of a fairy tale, an indoor pool fit for a Grecian god, and always filled with celebrities – the Ritz is the place to be. Most recently Jennifer Lopez and Beyonce have been spotted as guests, but that doesn’t conclude the celebrity list. Over the years Elton John, the Prince of Whales, Coco Chanel, Nicole Kidman, and Gwyneth Paltrow have all stayed for a night or two.

Le Meurice Paris

When stars are looking for an extra dash of splendor, they head to the Le Meurice hotel in Paris. Everything about this hotel is picture perfect, except the bill – Beyonce paid a whopping 20,000 for a 1 night stay there recently.

Rating: 3 Stars


Sometimes staying in a smaller, quieter, hotel is the best way to enjoy your stay in Paris and truly get a feel for the city. The charming Hotel Cardinal Rive Gauche is tucked away in Paris’s 5th district and offers you a true “home away from home” feeling while also not sparing any of that Parisian flair. The hotel is convenient to many of Paris’s main attractions as well, such as the Eiffel Tower, The Notre-Dame Cathedral, Champs Elysees, The Louvre, the Botanical Garden, and much more!

Upon arriving at the hotel, you’ll immediately feel in good hands. The staff is attentive, informative, and completely focused on your needs. You can even get excellent restaurant and sightseeing recommendations.  You’ll be pleasantly surprised on the spacious guest rooms and large windows here, given the fact that the hotel is rather small. All the guest rooms are nicely decorated in a French countryside style, painted in soothing colors and with beds inviting you to fall into them. When you awake from your restful slumber, be sure to grab a delicious bite to eat from the hotel restaurant before hitting the town.

The guest services offered here are basic but well provided, and the staff will ensure you want for nothing.

March Featured Paris Hotel of the Month: Hotel Castille

Location:  33-37 rue Cambon, 75001, Paris, France

Style: 108 rooms, contemporary and classic elegance

Price: From US $289 a night

The décor of this hotel alone is worth the price, which really isn’t too bad for all it offers. Located in the center of Haute couture Paris, and just a short distance from attractions such as the Opera Garnier and the Louvre, this hotel is right where you want to be. This particular area is also interesting for its beautiful merging of both Italian and French themes, which you can experience at the Hotel Castille in both its splendid décor and its restaurant L’Assaggio. C’est Magnifique!

The history of the building the Castille is located in actually dates back 300 years! Originally it was the home of Marechal du Luxemburg and eventually becoming what it is today. An interesting feature of this hotel is that it is divided into 2 wings: The Opera Wing and The Rivoli Wing. The Opera Wing features a more black and white contemporary style, while the Rivoli Wing features a classic elegance tone. Whatever your taste, The Hotel Castille Paris can accommodate it!
