What: A classic Parisian hôtel particulier in an opulent neoclassical style.

Where: Paris's Left Bank, close to the beautiful Musée d'Orsay.

Why: Designer Christian Lacroix applies his creative hand once again to a second hotel. Flaunting his fashion pedigree, he artfully matches bold color palettes and decadent fabrics to elegant excess. Like its original predecessor, Le Petit Moulin, Le Bellechasse is a sublime sartorial experience for anyone enamored with the city's haute couture history.
