Marble floors, 19-century furniture and warm colorful walls greet guests inside the Louison hotel (Ex. Aviatic St Germain) in Paris, an elaborate boutique venue and former home of Marquise de Maintenon, wife of King Louis XIV. Find inspiration in this Left Bank retreat where musicians, painters and writers have hung out since 1856. Accommodations range from the Triple Prestige, to the Prestige and Traditional and although architect F. Foucaut made renovations to the building, chic Parisian heritage still oozes from the interiors. Parking in the area can be a challenge but the Louison hotel offers drivers garage space (daily charges apply).
