From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
Not far from the Champs-Élysées, near the Porte Maillot, this stylish 33-room property takes its name from its vest-pocket garden, where brown rattan chairs attend a small fountain. The garden is just off the lobby-lounge, where sleek contemporary furniture sits amid lots of art books, and services include two computers, a station for free tea and coffee, an array of snacks including organic fruit-juice smoothies, and an honesty bar. Rooms are quiet and comfortable, with fold-down leather-lined writing desks, wardrobes covered in dark-chocolate leather, striped neutral carpeting, and plush beds with headboards with a camellia motif that winks at Chanel's emblematic flower. There's a small gym with a steam room and sauna. Instead of the usual overpriced Paris hotel breakfast of flabby croissants and weak coffee, the buffet here includes eggs, charcuterie, fruit, organic preserves, excellent breads, and bottomless coffee. The smiling young staff make life easier for a foreign clientele that's a mix of fashionistas and business go-getters. —2011 Hot List
