As the romantic month of February begins, we're highlighting the City of Light. Known for its beautiful boulevards where couples can stroll hand-in-hand, sip a glass of Champagne at a Belle Epoque bar, meander through an art museum admiring world-famous works of art, or dine on the finest French cuisine, Paris is an iconic destination. 

In this edition of Destination Spotlight, we worked with Luxury Travel Intelligence to gain valuable insider information on some of Paris' top hotels, as well as recommended dining options.

For foodies, Luxury Travel Intelligence recommends Champeaux, a contemporary Brasserie by Alain Ducasse and Olivier Maurey. Situated in the 1st err, Champeaux is a short distance from the Saint-Eustache Church under the Canopée in Forum des Halles. LTI states, "we love the signature soufflé – there is both a sweet and savoury variation on offer. The space itself is designed for lingering – book the le Salon Prive, which overlooks La Canopée’s great forecourt". Looking for a floating dining option? Check out Ducasse Sur Seine. Docked in front of the Eiffel Tower, this restaurant by Alain Ducasse floats along the Seine while diners enjoy lunch or dinner. According to LTI, "the dining room has a dash of retro, with a Warhol-esque carpet and floor-to-ceiling windows for perfect viewing. Menu is contemporary French cuisine, cooked on board and featuring seasonal produce."

Mandarin Oriental Paris

According to Luxury Travel Intelligence, "the beautifully-designed, contemporary building on the Rue Saint-Honoré immediately sets it apart from Paris’ other top-end hotels. Inside, the modern rooms combine sleek style with boudoir-chic, Art Deco tweaks and the best technical amenities (such as Nespresso and Bang & Olufsen) – although the bathrooms are a little dimly lit for our liking." Blending the brand's Asian aesthetic with Parisian style, the hotel offers the Sur Measure restaurant, and a spa centered around a huge pool. Insider Tip: LTI's top suite pick is the Royale Mandarin Suite with a large terrace overlooking the Garnier Opera and the Eiffel Tower.
