Admire work by art and design stars M/M, Pierre Le-Tan, and the late Dash Snow at the très chic boutique Hotel Amour (from $140), with 24 individually designed rooms sporting vintage seventies furnishings. The lobby café spills out into a lovely garden courtyard, where you can smoke like a French bobo over a bottle of L’Oratoire de la Pansière ($30).
Surround yourself with Philippe Starck’s funky designs, like superhero-mask-adorned light fixtures, at Mama Shelter (from $110) in the laid-back 20th Arrondissement. All 170 rooms feature new 24" iMacs and free Wi-Fi, while Mama Pizzeria serves up mini pizzas ($4) day and night. Take advantage of Super Sundays, when room prices drop to $107.
Borrow a parka and sip Grey Goose cocktails (4 for $52) inside a bar made of ice at Le Kube Hotel (from $347), a grand nineteenth-century maison particulière converted into 41 sleek rooms with clear glass walls separating beds from bathtubs. Wednesday nights bring female D.J.'s such as Anto and Liz Gomis to the fur- and glass-lined lobby bar.
