The historic Le Pavillon de la Reine hotel in Paris’ 3rd Arrondissement.

Tucked away through a discreet entrance within the arches of the historic Place des Vosges you’ll find the boutique Le Pavillon de La Reine, one of the Marais’s best-kept secrets. The historic hotel, its 54 rooms and suites done in a blend of rich fabrics, antique furnishings, velvet curtains, and oil paintings, was once home to the famed French author, Victor Hugo. A cozy library and lounge, complete with a fireplace, offer guests an honor bar where they can mix their own drinks. The basement spa features a jacuzzi and steam room. Le Pavillon de la Reine’s hidden Marais location allows visitors to take full advantage of one of the city’s hottest neighborhoods while having a quiet place to return to at the end of the day.
