M Social Hotel Paris Opera, France
There are only four M Social hotels across the world and they like to combine luxury and creativity in an individual, design-savvy style. In this case, a grand, eight storey hotel that opened on boulevard Haussmann in 1927 has been revived as a welcoming city-centre base that manages to be both playful and pampering yet also primed for business. Opened in September 2021 after a 17-month restoration, the property looks set to become a standout place to stay and dine in this busy neighbourhood. If you fancy checking into an historic building with up-to-the-minute rooms and plenty of shopping and cultural attractions on the doorstep, here is the answer.
