Nothing says you’re in Paris like a gorgeous view of the Eiffel Tower.
Named after French civil engineer Gustave Eiffel, the wrought-iron structure is one of the city’s —and the world’s— most recognizable landmarks.
Thanks to some of Paris’s top luxury hotels, visitors to the City of Light have the chance to see the grand icon from the comfort of their private hotel rooms.
Located in historic neighborhoods and often architectural beauties in their own right, these chic hotels offer beautiful views of the tower and its spectacular nightly light show, as well as other city landmarks. From the stately Shangri-La Hotel, a former royal residence, to the streamlined Hotel Montaigne, Luxurily Travel has rounded up seven hotels with interiors as stunning as their views.
Hotel Montaigne A five-star establishment in Paris’s 8th arrondissement, the Hotel Montaigne is set among some of the city’s most popular museums, theaters, and couture shops. Designed by Pierre-Yves Rochon, the interiors of this glamorous hotel boast black-and-white floors in abstract patterns, marble and oak furniture, and world-class views of the historic tower.

The building is the former royal residence of Napoléon Bonaparte’s grandnephew, Prince Roland Bonaparte, and the interiors are appropriately grand, showcasing detailed ceiling murals, gold leaf embellishments, and bronze wall reliefs of Napoléon.

La Bourdonnais The interiors of this boutique hotel in the heart of Paris were designed by Oscar Ono, who drew inspiration from the travels of Bertrand-François Mahé de La Bourdonnais, a lieutenant in the French East India Company. Antique globes and weathered travel books decorate the warm brown-and-orange rooms, which offer—on the hotel’s higher floors—breathtaking views of the Eiffel Tower.
