by Beatrice Amagat,Casey O'Brien Blondes

From the author of French Country Hideaways comes an enticing new insider’s entree to Paris. Eschewing the larger hotels and chains, Casey O’Brien Blondes has put together an impeccable list of four-star escapes carefully selected for their interior design, authenticity, panache, and personalized service. Grouped by theme—including literary, historic, and boudoir—the hotels present an enticing range of décor, from the timeless splendor of the Raphael, with its incomparable view of the Arch de Triomphe from its lush rooftop garden restaurant, to the minimalist verve of Hotel le A, off the Faubourg Saint-Honoré, where graphic black-and-white décor harmonize with Gallic élan. Each is unique, yet all share in common family or manager ownership, fewer than 100 rooms, generous room size, and very distinctive French style. With lush color photography and in-depth descriptions of each hotel, including a list of neighborhood restaurants, boutiques, gourmet treats, curiosities, or walking tours, Parisian Hideaways is a must for anyone longing to escape to or be inspired by the City of Lights.

I've had more fun planning my upcoming trip with Ms. Blondes' book as a delicious resource. I used her previous Ouevre, "French Country Hideaways" to plan a previous trip to France and was perfectly guided to find the right chateaux to suit me. Imagine my delight to now discover a Parisian version. One of the most helpful aspects of her books are the "Coups de Coeur" for each property. The little extras in the neighbourhood that enrich your experience. I am using her suggestions to plan my itinerary of things to do while visiting. Even though I am only staying in one of these gems, I've made a note of where I want to stop by for drinks or tea just to take in the ambience. Bravo!
P.S. I am so sorry that I just discovered the book because I definitely would have given it as Holiday Gifts had I known!
Like a luxurious vacation in a book, Parisian Hideaways takes you on a tour of some of Paris' most beautiful hotels. I bought this looking for color and design inspirations for my home, and was quite happy with the photos inside. Granted, I'll never have the money to replicate these French jewels, but as far as color and texture inspiration, I'm sure I can find a few ideas I'll need to try.
i loved this book! so much in fact, that i ordered five more for holiday gifts.
the photographs are beautiful and the hotels are exquisite gems. not only do you get the goods on these special places, blondes also includes all the local restaurants, bistros, shops and points of interest nearby.
from one francophile to another, do yourself a favor and pick up this incredible book, you will be thrilled with it, i promise.
This a standard coffee table book with some very lovely home interiors. Unfortunately, the size of quite a few of the photos are sacraficed to allow for text.
I pour over this book at least once a day. I'm going to use it as a template for decorating my new home.
Looking forward to putting this to good use his coming year! Lots of possibilities in here! Heading to Paris for our second year in a row. This book will help with the planning!
This book wasn't really what I was expecting. The cover pic intrigued me; the book itself not so much. Good for its genre.
