Where the Locals Would Stay

“From the street, you can’t really tell that Hôtel du Petit Moulin (from $258; is a hotel; its lobby is an old boulangerie with the traditional display window. The ornate rooms, designed by Christian Lacroix, are tiny, but it doesn’t matter, since its real appeal is the location right in the Marais.” —Audrey Brock, photographer at Le Secret d’Audrey

“The Hotel Particulier Montmartre (from $530;, a late-19th-century mansion, is this secret hideaway at the end of a cobblestone lane; it’s like being at a French country house, even though you’re right by Montmartre. Drink cocktails—like the Impérial martini—on the leafy terrace.” —Jean-Christophe Orthlieb, designer at Studio NOCC

“The Hotel du Temps (from $163; has a vintage brasserie feel, but with modern décor. There’s a great bar that serves an insanely delicious éclair. It’s always full of young people, because it’s on the border of the up-and-coming 9th and 10th arrondissements.” —Elodie Fagan, marketing manager for Pinterest in France
