3 Luxury Paris Hotels You’ll Never Want to Leave

3 Luxury Paris Hotels You’ll Never Want to Leave

Say hello to Paris and three of the city’s most magnificent hotels.

Once the former home of Napoleon Bonaparte’s grandnephew, Prince Roland Bonaparte, the Shangri-La Hotel is one of the most luxurious hotels in Paris. But I’ll just let the photos do the talking.

You walk in past the lobby and your eyes don’t know where look next – marble floors and columns, sculptures and original ornate mouldings.

We explored the hotel for almost an hour, soaking in each room – each one telling a different story.

And then we came into this banquet room – quite possibly the most beautiful room I’ve ever been to in my life.

The hotel has 8 suites that overlook the Eiffel Tower. This was only one of them.

Situated in the heart of the Left Bank, L’hotel was once home to Irish writer and poet Oscar Wilde. I felt like I had just stepped into a time machine, with the hotel oozing old world French glamour, surrounded by original artwork and ornate accent decor.

Enter, lobby.


The most magnificent part of this hotel was the spiral staircase, smothered in leopard, winding all the way down to the lobby.

You walk outside and you’re surrounded by art galleries. The hotel is on Rue Des Beaux-Arts – there are charming cafes, bookstores and designer shops everywhere. It’s quiet enough during the day (silent at night) in the neighborhood, perfect for sleeping in and cozying up with your loved ones. You’re also only a few blocks south of the Seine River, so a quick hop skip over the bridge (about a 4 minute walk) and you’re at the Louvre (READ: How I spent my first four days in Paris).

The rooms are moody, filled with antique furniture. It’s a tad bit dark, but doesn’t that just make the whole place that much more romantic?

Velvet bed. Cherry wood everything. The bathroom was just as glamorous, with a separate closet for la toilette.

The staff is attentive, polite and we were extremely well taken care of our entire stay.

There was a sense of comfort walking into Hotel Verneuil. I don’t know if it was the cozy lobby or the bright, clean room we stayed in, but I found myself lazier and lazier the longer I stayed.


The rooms are clean, yet charming with a mix of modern touches and classic accents.

As soon as I hit the bed I did not want to get up.

I saw the bathroom, filled with L’Occitane products and did not want to leave.

Six hours later, I’m picking up my fringe key, take a minute to enjoy the breeze on the balcony, ready to explore the neighborhood of Saint Germain.

And what a gorgeous neighborhood it is.

Please take risks. Don't let fear of the unknown push you into an existence of what-if's - a life swallowed in regrets.

Please tell your mom you love her, even if she wasn't there for you as much when you were a child. Send your best friend a cat meme and make her smile today. Surround yourself with people who are positive, people who uplift you, people who make you laugh and people who make you believe that you can do anything. Because these are the people who will catch you when you fall, and that support is exactly what you'll need to have behind you when you take these risks.

You live one life. And nothing is promised, or guaranteed - that includes the traditional idea of success and security - so why not just jump?

Hey you.

Stop being unhappy with yourself. Stop wishing you looked like somebody else, or that people like you as much as they like someone else. Stop trying to get attention from those who hurt you. Stop hating your body, your face, your quirks - love them. Because without those things, you wouldn't be you - and why would you want to be anyone else? Be confident in yourself. Smile - it will draw people in. And if anyone hates you because you love yourself, stick your middle finger in the air and say screw it, my happiness will not depend on others anymore.

Love yourself. Trust yourself. Believe in yourself. Because you deserve that much.

#Rome done right.

I found the hotel with the best view of the #Colosseum and I wrote a post about it.

What gets you out of bed in the morning?

@urbancowboybnb | @salthousemkt
In just the past year, I've -

Left my full time career,
Moved out of a shared apartment,
Had to sleep on friends' couches for months,
Filmed a reality show,
Shared my father and family's story with the world,
Traveled through Italy, Iceland, Croatia, England, Sweden, Denmark, Mexico, Morocco and France,
Fallen in love in New York,
Signed my first lease for my very own apartment in Brooklyn,
Been published in The Huffington Post, Conde Nast Traveler, BBC World, CNN, Time, Yahoo and hundreds of other media outlets around the world,
Climbed to the top of the tallest mountain in North Africa,
And woken up every single day grateful to be able to follow my dreams.

Just 365 days, and your entire world could change. When will you take the first step?
Be strong, always.
Where are you going?
Coffee and donuts.
The only time you should look back, is to see how far you've come.

You don't have to know where you want to finish. You just have to begin.

Inspired by @rescueskin and my new post | 3 Ways to Kick Anxiety in the Ass | link in bio ????
There's a certain calm here that I can't explain - a sort of peace that can be found nowhere else.

Everyday begins with an act of courage and hope: ...getting out of bed.
