Fabulous old mansion now functioning as a hotel with a top-notch staff that treats you like royalty. The building can't be beat: gorgeous library bar where you sip while feeling like you're in Lord Grantham's library. Huge "back yard" where you can have drinks delivered or smoke a cigar - if it rains they have a glassed-in area out front....

On a visit to Paris, France last month, I enjoyed a 3-nights stay in a unique hotel -- one that is in fact a former chateau. Saint James is in fact the only chateau-hotel in Paris and just off the Avenue des Champs Elysees in a quiet heritage part of the city. It's a fairly small hotel of less than...

This was my fourth time to Paris and this one was my honeymoon. This was by far the best of them all and was an absolutely gorgeous place to stay in an exclusive neighbourhood. Treat yourself and stay here- you won't regret it!

Upon arrival, my husband and I were given a warm welcome to the property and our room (which had been upgraded to a junior suite). The breakfast buffet was excellent, and our room and amenities made for an exceptionally relaxing and romantic weekend stay. Definitely looking forward to a future visit.

This is a beautiful hotel with really unique / interesting style. Service is top notch and they've thought of every last detail... except... for $700/night it would be nice to have a king sized bed. I know that sounds silly given how great this place is overall, but when we're paying a lot of money on vacation it would be...

Dear Rach, Thank you very much for your kind email, I am happy you enjoyed your stay with us. While most beds in European hotels are 1.80m wide, which is the equivalent of a "Californian queen" bed in the US I believe, we do have many rooms with king beds (a width of 2 meters), it is simply not possible...

Location is great. Building and staff are excellent. You are paying for high quality and you get it. The staff are extremely helpful. Make time for a fancy cocktail in the library and hangout in the backyard at least once. I'm only making the next comments so you know a couple of the nit-picks. I would stay there again easily....

No, we don't live in a stately home in the centre of Paris ! It's just that as you sweep up the impressive drive to this imposing house, you don't feel that you're arriving at a hotel, and throughout our stay here, the staff made us feel like honored house guests, rather than clients. This was helped immensely by our...
