Smile back at Mona Lisa
Hotel Regina's period façade is right across the road from the Louvre, in Paris's upscale 1st arrondissement. You'll be on the corner of Rue de Rivoli, fringing the Tuileries Gardens, and a 3-minute walk from the Tuileries and Palais Royal–Musée du Louvre metro stations.
Picnics, shopping, opera
Take a lazy picnic in the Tuileries Gardens right outside, or step out in your finest feathers for a night at the Opéra Garnier, a 15-minute walk away. It'll take a little longer if you get distracted by the luxury stores of Place Vendôme and Boulevard Haussmann on the way.
Belle Epoque nostalgia
Elegant 1900s decor, complete with fine woodwork and plush upholstery, transports you to the French capital's Belle Epoque. You can sip tea in the English-style lounge bar while checking your email on WiFi, or escape with a book to the quaint garden courtyard.
The emphasis here is on luxury: Of the hotel's 120 guestrooms, 30 are spacious suites. Guests love the sumptuous decor, comfortable beds, and views – in some rooms, of the Eiffel Tower. Modern touches like WiFi and satellite TV complement traditional design.
