Staying at a 4-star Paris hotel near the Arc de Triomphe gives you comfort, luxury, and terrific service in a super-convenient location.
Our recommended hotels cluster in the three arrondissements that converge at the Arc - the 17th, the 8th, and the 16th.
Each hotel has a distinct "personality" ranging from super-contemporary to traditional - so have fun choosing which one best matches your own style!
Although all of these 4-star hotels enjoy locations in the three up-scale neighborhoods near the Arc de Triomphe and other major attractions, you may be surprised by how much their rates vary. What's the reason? Views. In general, you'll find higher rates at the hotels where some guestrooms offer full or partial views of the famous monument.
So splurge on a view (tip: be sure to request it when you book) and luxurious amenities... or walk a couple of blocks to see the Arc while enjoying your hotel's convenient location and luxurious amenities at budget rates. Your choice!
Regardless of which hotel you choose, you'll be in a wonderful part of Paris!
Splendid Étoile Hôtel ★★★★
You may feel like you can reach out and touch the Arc de Triomphe from your balcony when you stay at the 4-star Splendid Étoile Hôtel - and in fact, you almost can. (Be sure to request a room with a view when you make your reservations.)
Inside a stately 19th century Haussmannian building, the hotel's 57 guestrooms and suites feature restful tones of gray and cream with jewel-like pops of color. You'll love the onsite gourmet restaurant, where you can experience classic French cuisine.
Of course you'll enjoy the wonderful sights and stores along Champs Élysées, but the hotel's 17th Arrondissement location also gives you easy access if you want to attend an event at the Palais des Congrès, visit the modern Grande Arche at La Défense, or explore the Fondation Louis Vuitton in the Bois du Bologne.
Request a room with a balcony overlooking Avenue Victor Hugo if you want to see the Arc de Triomphe from your room at Hôtel Royal Élysées, a charming traditional hotel in the posh 16th Arrondissement.
The hotel's 35 guestrooms feature regal colors and warm wood tones. You'll find that the courtyard-facing rooms in particular are a bargain for a 4-star Paris hotel in this location.
More to do near the hotel: visit nearby Musée Dapper, one of Paris's "hidden" treasures - a little-known museum with an outstanding collection of sub-Saharan African art - and then walk down to Trocadéro near the Seine River, where you'll have a superb, unobstructed view of the Eiffel Tower.
Get ready to love or hate the eye-popping colors and innovative decor at Cristal Champs Élysées Hôtel, located in the swanky 8th Arrondissement, a five-minute walk from the Arc de Triomphe and less than 50 yards from Champs Élysées.
Each of the 26 guestrooms and suites sports a unique graphic design and color scheme almost guaranteed to put a smile on your face. But don't let the mixture of fun and glamour fool you - the Cristal also delivers plenty of luxurious amenities for your enjoyment!
In addition to shopping along Champs Élysées and the Golden Triangle, be sure to check out some of the many nearby museums - Palais de Tokyo, Petit Palais, and the Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris are all within easy reach.
A collection of contemporary art mingles with Picasso lithographs at Atala Champs Élysées, an art-inspired hotel located on a quiet street just 2 minutes away from lively Champs Élysées and perhaps a 5-minute walk from the Arc de Triomphe.
You'll love the Art Deco touches in the spacious 48 guestrooms and suites, as well as the luxurious fabrics and linens. Even better: Eiffel Tower views from some of the balconies. A lovely art-filled garden in the hotel's courtyard gives you the perfect place to relax in the morning over coffee and croissants, or in the evening with a drink from the bar. You'll also enjoy the well-equipped fitness room.
And of course, you'll find plenty to do nearby - but you can also easily hop on the Métro and be at the Louvre and other top Paris attractions within minutes!
Hôtel du Romancier (also called Hôtel Chateaubriand) ★★★★
Located less than a 10-minute walk from the Arc de Triomphe in the 8th Arrondissement, Hôtel du Romancier is located in an elegant 19th century building on a quiet side street just a block from lively Champs Élysées.
Featuring a mix of antiques and luxury fabrics, each of the 28 guestrooms is individually decorated and their adjoining bathrooms feature gorgeous Italian marble. If you're traveling with your family, the triple rooms are a nice option.
The hotel's location means you're close to all the top attractions along Champs Élysées. In addition, be sure to explore the lovely gardens, statues, and lake at nearby Parc Monceau.
