The world's most luxurious city is also among the most gay-friendly destinations in the world. Although you won’t find any queer-only hotels in gay Paris, staying in Le Marais, the city’s gay neighborhood, is your best shot. From Place des Vosges, the oldest planned square in Paris (that's also a perfect spot to enjoy a picnic lunch in the sun), to Rue de Rivoli, in Marais you'll enjoy the secluded luxury of some of Paris' best boutique hotels, in the very center of the City of Lights.
Should you prefer a more affordable gay hotel, Paris has plenty to offer with budget-friendly options within walking distance of many of the city's cruise clubs and gay bars. Focus on the location, since each Parisian neighborhood has its own charm: les Halles, next to Le Marais, is busy and lively; Opera or Saint Germain on the river’s left bank are classy and elegant; South Pigalle is the trendiest spot; the Champs Elysées scream luxury, while business travelers will prefer staying in La Défense.
Almost wherever you decide to stay, you’ll have easy access to everything Paris has to offer for the gay traveler. You'll be minutes away from some of the city's top gay venues, fashion boutiques and, of course, best restaurants!
