PARIS: A Bed That Floats
Suspension of disbelief: At One by the Five, a single-suite boutique hotel in the Latin Quarter of Paris, the bed futuristically floats above the ground. (In fact, almost none of the avant-garde boudoir furnishings touch the floor.)
Snooze factor: Up all night. If this sexy, ultramodern, high-tech hotel has its way, you won't get any rest at all. From the perfume-stocked dressing parlor and the mood-lit shower to an infrared Web cam that broadcasts the bed activity (ahem) on your own closed-circuit television channel... One by the Five has a one-track mind. Despite the sin-friendly amenities, the bed itself is designed to feel like a piece of heaven: suspended from the wall three feet above the floor, with nothing below or above but pale blue walls dotted with puffy clouds and tiny, starlike lights.
Who goes there: If George and Jane Jetson wanted to spice up their relationship with a racy romantic getaway, this is where they'd go.
Undercover info: Check in for One by the Five at its slightly more conventional parent hotel, The Five, directly across the street. Your morning-after breakfast, however, will be delivered to your door.
