One of the questions I get asked the most from readers is for hotel recommendations for a honeymoon. This post also works for anniversary trips too.
Paris is an incredibly romantic city and I can’t think of a better place to honeymoon. I hope this post helps when planning to make your honeymoon special and memorable.
Did you honeymoon in Paris? If so, where did you stay? Comment below and share your favorite Paris honeymoon hotel.
The Saint James Paris has been on my radar for a few years and I finally had a chance to visit in November. Let’s just say it did not disappoint. The courtyard was decorated with white lights for Christmas and I just stood in the courtyard with a huge smile on my face. I was greeted inside by the concierge who was recommended by Thibault at Grand Powers. Thibault arranged for me to have a drink at the bar because he said it was one of the best places in Paris. I had an impromptu tour of the hotel by the concierge before being shown to the bar. There is a courtyard in back that is also perfect for a small wedding. (I asked just in case) To say I have a crush on this hotel is an understatement.
Grand Hotel du Palais Royal is one of my favorite hotels in Paris. It is a boutique hotel right behind the Louvre on a tiny street overlooking Palais Royal. It is perfectly tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the center of Paris. If you have the budget, splurge for one of their balconies with an Eiffel Tower view.
I discovered Pavillon de la Reine while walking in the Marais a few years ago. It is in Place des Vosges but tucked away just enough it is easy to pass by. Once you enter the courtyard, you will be enchanted by the ivy covered building. In the Fall the ivy turns shades of red, yellow and green and I was surprised this past Summer to see it covered in jasmine. (my favorite)
They have a restaurant at the hotel that was just awarded a Michelin star. There are rooms that have windows that open up to the courtyard and you can hear Opera singers on the weekends. This hotel is truly a gem and the perfect spot for a romantic getaway or honeymoon trip.
You may remember The Bristol from Midnight in Paris. This hotel is classic Paris and I have no doubt the stay will be memorable. I have not stayed here yet, but I have enjoyed high tea in the restaurant and the service was perfect. If you aren’t convinced yet, don’t miss the rooftop indoor pool for guests.
You will remember Hôtel Plaza Athénée from Sex and the City. This is the hotel Carrie stays with the Russian at the end of the series. The balconies are ones to swoon over and you can even request the Carrie room!
You really can’t beat this location with an Eiffel Tower view from the balcony.
This was a reader recommendation. She stayed at La Reserve Apartments for her honeymoon and said it was fantastic. The Reserve Apartments have all the amenities of the hotel but more space.
The lobby and library is absolutely stunning. I had a tour here a few years ago and got to enjoy a drink in the library. It is quiet and tucked away from the center of the city just enough.
I have recommended Grand Powers to readers probably the most over the years and I always get the best reviews back after their stay. Their concierge and staff go above and beyond to make sure guests have the best stay possible. The hotel is located just off the Champs Elysées within walking distance to great restaurants and the Seine.
Some rooms have Eiffel Tower views and balconies.
The Ritz Paris reopened in 2016 after being closed for four years for renovation. I have not had the opportunity to stay at the hotel yet, but I hope to in the near future. I had a cocktail at Hemingway Bar with a friend which is always a fun experience. If you don’t have the chance to book a room at The Ritz Paris, you can enjoy a cocktail at the bar one night. Make sure to keep an eye out for Colin the famous bartender.
I know everyone isn’t on the same budget so I am going to include one adorable boutique hotel that would be a great option. I have stayed at Hotel Caron de Beaumarchais and loved it. It is right in the heart of the Marais and a perfect location. I have recommended this hotel to so many people over the years and everyone has come back with rave reviews. I highly recommend booking a balcony room with an exterior facing room. They have a courtyard option which is more quiet. Order the breakfast, it is one of the best values in the city. It is 12 euros and you can have it delivered to your room and there is enough for two people.

Just across from The Tuileries, you can’t beat this view. I had a tour of a room with a balcony on a rainy Fall day. I wanted to stay the night.
I had the chance to visit Cour des Vosges back in November. The hotel is made up of 12 rooms overlooking my favorite Place des Vosges. Each room is stunning and it is made to feel like you are at home in Paris with all the amenities of a hotel. It is intimate and luxurious.
