BALCONY // 11TH ARRONDISSEMENT // COLORFUL
This hotel room appears to have eggplant envy... The decor is understated and tasteful, in a palette of eggplant and raspberry splashed across a pretty headboard and polka-dotted bed linens, striped throw pillows and curtains, and even the carpet. Major plus: it's a corner room with two French doors that let in lots of light. And you have a balcony that runs the length of the room and overlooks the Rue Neuve des Boulets and the Rue de l’Hôtel Léon Frot.
Light-filled bathroom with a window, quite a luxury in Paris. Bathtub. Water closet in the bathroom.
Head for the Marais, former home to ROYALTY! Here, stone FACADES, hidden courtyards and narrow streets house countless cutting-edge DESIGNERS of fashion and decorative objects. Shopaholic? You're in trouble!
The local: gay, likes to party, appreciates fine things.
