The brainchild of French fashion designer Christian Lacroix, Hôtel le Bellechasse is a 34-room spot on the Left Bank, in the Faubourg St. Germain district. The building itself dates back to 1840, but the interiors have been flamboyantly reimagined by Lacroix so that staying here feels like staying in an elaborate work of art. Close at hand are the banks of the Seine, the Musée d’Orsay, the Louvre and Boulevard Saint-Germain and the Eiffel Tower are a mere 15-minute walk away. Here, Paris is at your (incredibly stylish) doorstep.
