Shop-lined, arcaded place des Vogues has lately regained its 17th century status as one of Paris's most elegant squares, and the "Queen's Pavilion" lives up to its place at the head of the square.

You enter via a cobblestone courtyard where the walls spill with ivy and window boxes burst with bright flowers. The tapestries and oil portraits of the paneled lobby evoke a modest castle, while the rooms are done in a more modern, but still elegant, fashion.

No two rooms are the same, but for a good idea just picture post-modern iron bed frames, antique dressers, and plush contemporary chairs against walls of dusty vermilion or rough hewn oak beams against creamy plaster.

Most of the suites are arranged so the sitting room is on the street while the bedroom overlooks a quiet, plant-filled inner court.

There's a wood-paneled bar and lounge with a stone fireplace, and a vaulted basement breakfast room.

The service is impeccable.
