Hotels in Paris offer enchanting accommodations in a city nicknamed “City of Lights”. Known for its fashion, its cafes, its fine dining, its rivers, its iconic landmarks, its markets, its churches, its museums and its art galleries, Paris is one of the most romantic getaways in the world. Notable Parisians include Molière, Jacques Cousteau, Gustave Eiffel, Voltaire, Louis XIV, Brigitte Bardot, Claude Monet and Emma Watson. Things to keep in mind when travelling to The City of Lights is that you should always start with bonjour madame/monsieur before asking a question, that you may have to visit a café or bar in order to find a public bathroom, that WiFi is free for 20 minutes at many metro stations and that you should not be on your phone or touching documents while eating. Also, you will want to dress nicely if you want to fit in. Truly, hotels in Paris are some of the best in all of Europe. Before we get to hotels in Paris, let’s take a look at some background information on the area to help you along the way.
The earliest modern tribe to inhabit the Paris area was known as the Parisii, who lived there circa mid-3rd century BC. In 52 BC, the Romans conquered the Paris Basin. Christianity was introduced to the area in the mid-3rd century AD by way of Saint Denis, Paris’s first Bishop, who was beheaded on what would become known as the “Hill of Martyrs” by the Romans for refusing to renounce his faith. From 845-886, Paris sustained a handful of sieges by way of the Vikings, who looted the city and enforced bribes. Paris had 200,000 inhabitants by the year 1328, making it the most populous city in Europe. As a result of the Hundred Years’ War, the city was under English control for a relatively short time. In 1572, thousands of French Protestants were killed during the St. Bartholomew’s Day massacre. The city’s population had grown to around 650,000 by the year 1780. During the 1800s, Paris became more modernized by such installments as new fountains, the city’s first metal bridge, the first railway line, a new opera house, a central market, gas lamps and new aqueducts and sewers. Around this time some of the world’s most influential Impressionist painters such as Manet, Monet and Renoir lived in Paris.
Today Paris, the capital and most populated city in France, is home to over 2 million Parisians. For 400 years Paris has been influential in European matters such as commerce, diplomacy, science and fashion. Paris is well-known for its landmarks, most notably the Eiffel Tower, Grand Palais, Arc de Triomphe and Sacre-Coeur Basilica. Notre-Dame de Paris, the well-known medieval Catholic cathedral, was damaged by fire in early 2019. The cathedral’s main structure remained intact, while damage was contained to the spire and roof. Paris has a robust array of cultural centers and events. Its main museums are the Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay, Musée de l’Orangerie and the Musée National d’Art Moderne. An international epicenter of fashion since the 1800s, the city hosts Paris Fashion Week in January and July. The French Open, or Roland-Garros, is a major tennis tournament that is played in late May and early June. The city’s main football club is PSG. Popular French foods include steak tartare, duck confit, oysters, squab, which is young pigeon, escargot, frog legs, coq au vin, or chicken braised with wine, frog legs, couscous, cheese, steak frites, croissants, baguettes, macarons, eclairs and chocolate. Drinks include wine, beer, apéritifs, absinthe, pastis, which is a liquorice-flavored spirit, calvados, or apple brandy, and espresso. Now that we have a little background information on the city, it’s time for hotels in Paris that will help make for an unforgettable experience.
