Paris at its chic-est

Paris at its chic-est

Preferred Hotels’ Oh So Chic package is giving travellers an unparalleled excuse to take a quick getaway to Paris this summer…in magnificent (or should that be magnifique?) style.

Nine Preferred Hotels across the city are participating, giving visitors an option to stay in the style and neighbourhood which they like best. Those who love Paris for its literary history might opt for the Montalembert, in St Germain-de-Pres, while fashionistas may prefer the Castille Paris, just down the street from Coco Chanel’s former home and right in the middle of the city’s premier shopping district.

With its elegant, classical-style decor and proximity to the Champs-Elysees, the Hotel Balzac (pictured) is the best choice for romantics (that Cartier is just a stone’s throw away is surely just a coincidence, but convenient if one is moved to propose).

This one-time private townhouse has been converted into a plush and posh boutique hotel, complete with marble floors and gold-trimmed rococo furnishings. Just a stone’s throw from the Arc de Triomphe, the hotel offers smashing views of Paris from its upper floors and easy access into the city via Metro – or horse-drawn carriage, for those who prefer it.

Those who think they’ve seen it all in Paris may be surprised – the Oh So Chic package includes an interactive guide and a downloadable map that reveals some of the city’s best-kept secrets. And with Eurostar trains whisking travellers from London into the centre of Paris in less than three hours, there’s little reason not to spend at least one long weekend this summer discovering them…

‘Oh So Chic’ packages include a 3-night stay, one-way airport transfer if required, daily breakfast, champagne and amuse-bouches, with introductory rates starting at €214 per night, based on double occupancy.
