18 Rue du Croissant, 2nd arrondissement; nearest metro: Bourse

Hotel Edouard 7 Paris Opera ★★★★
39 Avenue de l'Opéra, 2nd Arrondissement
An elegant lobby, onsite dining in the E7 Restaurant, fitness room, and 69 attractively furnished guest rooms and suites, are just a few of the things you'll love at Hôtel Édouard 7, located in a beautiful Haussmannian building on Avenue de l'Opéra. You can expect wonderful service and request a street-facing guestroom with balcony offering views of the Paris Opera House for a special experience. The hotel's excellent soundproofing mean you won't hear any outdoor noise when your windows are closed.
You really can't beat Édouard 7's location for its location closes to the Garnier Opera, the Louvre, the Sainte-Anne Asian restaurant district, and shopping Galeries Lafayette, Printemps, and surrounding stores. A few blocks behind the hotel are a number of acclaimed small theaters including Théâtre Édouard VII (10 Place Édouard VII) and the popular l'Olympia Paris (28 Boulevard des Capucines) concert venue. Place Vendôme and the Rue Saint-Honoré shopping district are also nearby.
11 Rue du Helder, 9th arrondissement
Similar to a "concept store" that combines retail with culture, the 4-star Chouchou might be considered a "concept hotel" due to the way it combines accommodations in its 63 sleekly sophisticated guestrooms and suites with entertainment: a guinguette-style bar complete with dance floor, a concert and live performance space called La Scène, a mini-food hall occupied by multiple vendors, and even a bath house of sorts with spa-like private tubs large enough for two available for rent by the hour, complete with champagne, a tasting menu, and music.
Book a stay at Chouchou (chouchou, in case you're wondering, is a term of endearment in French based on the word for, of all things, a cabbage), and you may have so much fun that you won't want to venture from the hotel - but if you do, you can walk to Palais Garnier - aka the Paris Opera House - and Galeries Lafayette in less than 5 minutes, and easily explore the rest of Paris and its top attractions from the hotel's location on a quiet side street in the lively 9th arrondissement.
Park Hyatt Paris Vendôme ★★★★★
5 Rue de la Paix, 2nd Arrondissement
Whether you choose a spacious guest room or a palatial suite with terrace views of nearby Place Vendôme at the luxurious 5-star Park Hyatt Place Vendôme, you'll love the posh contemporary furnishings, deep soaking tubs in the bathrooms, heated floors, onsite spa, well-equipped fitness room, and Michelin-starred cuisine at this wonderful oasis with 156 rooms and suites located in a historic Parisian palace.
A 3-minute walk brings you to the Paris Opera House (Opéra Garnier) or Tuileries Garden, and in just a couple more minutes you can reach the Louvre Museum, Seine River, and Galeries Lafayette.
The hotel is also surrounded by the world's best jewelers in Place Vendôme, and is steps away from the designer showrooms along Rue Saint-Honoré. And during the Christmas holiday season, sparkling lights covering dozens of majestic conical trees make Place Vendôme the most magical spot in Paris.
Hôtel Dress Code & Spa ★★★★
5 Rue de Caumartin, 9th Arrondissement
Located in the former French Prêt-à-Porter (ready to wear) headquarters, Hôtel Dress Code celebrates chic contemporary Parisian design, with public spaces enlivened by a Baccarat chandelier, pale white-washed wood floors, and white walls. You can choose among 33 unique guest rooms by French decorator Stéphanie Coutas, each offering a unique combination of styles, size, colors, and ambiance - no cookie-cutter designs here!
Near the hotel, you'll find plenty to explore and enjoy: the Paris Opera House, concert venue L'Olympia, Galeries Lafayette department store, the Louvre Museum, and Tuileries Garden. Just remember to save time at the end of your day to relax in Hotel Dress Code's beautiful mirrored pool and hammam.
23 Rue Godot de Mauroy, 9th Arrondissement
The highly-rated 3-star family-run Le Basile Hotel near the famous Galeries Lafayette and Au Printemps department stores, Opéra Garnier (Paris Opera House), and Madeleine Church offers bargain rates on its 27 guestrooms with air conditioning in this expensive part of central Paris.
Although the guestrooms tend to be small (true for so many Parisian hotels at every star level), the cheerful colors and simple furnishings create an appealing contemporary vibe. You'll love the quiet side street location and numerous nearby bistros in the otherwise bustling Opéra/Grands Magasins neighborhood. And the value is hard to beat.
But here's the catch: Le Basile fills up quickly because it offers cheap rates in this expensive neighborhood - so don't wait to book.
