"Taschens Hotel Series" books are much more than simple hotel guides. They are meant to be taken along on your trip, as they not only feature the best and most interesting places to stay - from low budget to luxury - but also list hot spots for each hotels neighborhood. Once youre installed in the hotel of your choice, you can peruse our suggestions for restaurants, bars, boutiques, specialty shops, and more, with the knowledge that these spots have been hand-selected by editor Angelika Taschen for a well-rounded and pleasing experience of the city youre visiting. Where to stay and what to visit in the City of Love? Among the sumptuously-photographed accommodations included here are the Christian Lacroix-designed Le Petit Moulin, the Dokhans (designed by Frederic Mechiche), the ultra-chic Hotel Costes by Jacques Garcia, the charming low budget Le Recamier Hotel overlooking the magnificent Place Saint Sulpice or the intimate secret hideaway of Tom Ford and a Marais apartment for rent owned and decorated by fashion designer Azzedine Alaia. While youre in town, enjoy our suggestions for everything from a literary cafe experience to a luxurious perfume boutique or a renowned cheese shop. Everything in this guide is carefully tailored to help make your Parisian holiday as fulfilling as possible.
