For those of whom the St. Germain/Latin Quarter needs no introduction, the Hotel Luxembourg Parc is a perfect choice to savior the familiar.
It's premiere location directly across from the garden park on a main street with walking access to the best of the left bank, sets it up to be a winner. What closes the deal however is the staff, who realize the boutique choice is one which relies on more than size and name brand soaps. The helpful and outgoing staff lead by Fabienne are in the business of insuring the 23 room hotel lives up to it's hype here. They all succeed very well.
Situated almost hidden in the midst of taller buildings and the Senate along rue de Vaugirard, the hotel stands out suddenly with its colorful green facade and flower adorned windows at the corner of a small side street. The inviting multiple entranced lobby, sitting area and small bar live up to the 4 star boutique description, along with a bright, windowed breakfast room attentively staffed and offering standard continental morning choices probably better sourced on the nearby streets if so inclined and not needing the pleasant service and surroundings. Any entry in the lobby area is immediately met with a friendly bonjour and offer for a drink or any other need. One definitely feels at home here and welcome after a long day of hoofing it around the city. An inviting wood adorned library and open air courtyard add to the look of the public areas. A fitness room was left unused by the already well exercised pedestrians in our two couples.
The rooms are excellent - with good size and in some cases lovely large windows which swing open to the streets below. In the case of the front side, this is both a curse and a blessing as the street can get busy with the sounds of late night revelers in the next door bar and always requisite motorcycles speeding to the next best thing somewhere, everywhere in Paris. Wifi was free and always accessible and the large bathroom looked carved out of marble, with high end fixtures and dimmer equipped lighting showing the artwork and furnishings. A very nice place to spend downtime between sightseeing and sampling the nearly endless restaurant choices close by.
This area of Paris oozes character and this location can serve as an excellent luxury base camp from which to explore the 6th and beyond. I would assume there are many other hotel choices nearby which offer some of the same maybe for less, but the driven staff and multiple designer touches make this hotel stand out and deserving of its consistent high ranking here. We will be back as it appears most others do as well.
* The hotel was also able to work with us when a previous room reservation earlier in the year was unable to be kept after the cancellation deadline passed. A rare gesture which is uncommon and demonstrative of their attention to guest satisfaction and long term thinking.
