The Scheufele family are longtime owners of the Swiss jewelry brand Chopard, print a couple of things about beauty. So the buzz around their small and very smart new Parisian hotel, where behind the big blue door – and across the floors above – the flagship Chopard boutique, is understandable. Simply put, 1, called Place Vendôme, has just five rooms and 10 rooms (including a top-floor knockout of an apartment, plus a library and hammam bath), the design of a multi-generational joint venture between Pierre-Yves Rochon and the Scheufeles assortment.

Each is unique in its configuration and choices of colors, textiles, and furnishings (considered the most beautiful toile de joie, marquetry, and moldings, tall windows that welcome tons of natural light, and antiques). It’s a very elegant but discreet deal, with a large see-and-be-seen lobby or buzzing restaurant: rather, a quiet personalized check-in at the salon, with or without ex-Mandarin Oriental chef and butler service. 1-placevendome.comFrom €1,300

1, like Place Vendôme, with its 30 rooms and 12 suites designed by Pierre-Yves Rochon, and various lounges and salons, including a charming bar encased in white-oak panelling.

What it contains: a Les Clefs d’Or Concierge to get opera tickets and restaurant reservations, full room service menus and four suites with a small but very nice roof terrace, almost ridiculously perfect Golden Triangle-Eiffel Tower views. hotel-sanregis.frFrom €500

One of only two hotels to fly the Dorchester Collection flag in the City of Light, Le Meurice is a definitive address for fashion week regulars, who justifiably love it for several reasons. Among them: its Rue de Rivoli location (across the Tuileries Gardens, just down the road from the Louvre); Its generous rosé pours champagne, and its old-world charm is just the right amount of shimmering surfaces, rich textiles and the occasional piece of all-star contemporary design.

Late last year, it launched a collection of 39 new collections that bring them all together in one of the most generous spaces: Lyon-based studio Lally & Berge – designs designed to bring the Tuileries inside, often beautifully hand-painted. Wallpapers are basmentary and the occasional stained glass flourishes: rose bushes bloom along the walls, cushions in hibiscus and peach color the backs of the sofas. The bathrooms – which are glamorous – are covered floor-to-ceiling in dark-veined white marble. The promise: a new photo that doesn’t abandon the hotel’s heritage. dorchestercollection.comFrom €1,900


The old Champs-Elysées’ sleek new face

Soon to sit at the other end of the style spectrum is the Hotel Balzac, which is now anything-but-old Mayan with a sleek new design and some amazing features, including a Japanese spa and two terrace suites (chef Pierre Gagnaire, three-Michelin-star to his name). The restaurant has been here for 20 years, thankfully).

Bertrand Hospitality has enlisted Charlotte de Donac and Festan’s Hugo Souze in a boutique group that includes St. Germain favorites Relais Christine and Norman and the (new) Chateau des Fleurs — as their further proof. A prime demand among hotel designers. They gutted the hotel’s 58 rooms and suites and re-dressed them in festoon tones (earthy, warm) and furnishings (in favor of tight 19th-century and early 20th-century forms and influences). Burlwood paneled with mirrored tables and risqué (in a good way) dim lighting, the bar is primed to become a Champs-Élysées venue. hotelbalzac.parisFrom €590
