Jet Set: Paris for Fashion Week

The Westin Paris

Fashion Week is officially here! I will be featuring the most fashionable destinations over the next few weeks through my Jet Set series. Paris is first on the list now that the Men's Fashion and Haute Couture shows are under way.

We usually choose stylish boutique hotels over large chain hotels, but there is no denying that it would be hard to top the Westin Paris. Located in the First Arrondissement, the Westin Paris is literally steps away from The Tuileries, The Louvre, the Rue du Faubourg Saint Honore shopping district, as well as the Place Vendôme and Place de la Concorde. The hotel also happens to have spectacular views of The Eiffel Tower. It is quite literally an ideal location.

The Westin Paris combines the classic elegance and grandeur of the Sybille de Margerie building in which it is housed with a more modern sensibility that can be found in its furnishings. The result is ideal for someone like myself, the traveler who enjoys marveling at the stunning architecture of the past, but enjoys chic and modern accommodations.

A Stylish Junior Suite with Breathtaking Views

I love the palette that was chosen for this hotel. The soothing grey tone of the walls works wonderfully with the crisp white linens and hints of color.

I think it would take me even longer to get ready in the morning if I had this view outside my window!

A Stylish Deluxe Room

This Superior Room is the least extravagant of the rooms offered at the Westin Paris, but still looks like a great place to rest after wandering through the City of Light all day.

Royal Suite
I love the gold leaf against the grey walls. And the gorgeous windows and doors typical of Parisian architecture are also quite lovely.

The Lavish Presidential Suite

The ballrooms in the Westin Paris illustrate the grandeur of the building.
