Ooh, it's a big day in Paris. For fashionistas, there's both good news and bad. The bad news? Carine Roitfield has quit as the editor of French Vogue. The good: there's now one more tres chic place to stay in the City of Light, with the opening of the Shangri-La Paris.

If you've ever wanted to stay in an historic French home, this is your chance: the hotel is located inside an 1896 mansion that was home to Napoleon's grandnephew Prince Roland Bonaparte.

The 54 rooms and 27 suites are tastefully decorated (but of course) in classic French style. Most of the regular rooms have views of the city and the Seine, while the suites guarantee both a view (some of the Eiffel Tower) and a large balcony or terrace.

To experience one of the suites for a little less, book the Opening Suite Experience before February 28--it's still pricey at 1,565 euros a night, but as well as getting to enjoy that balcony, the package includes daily American breakfast for one or two, and welcome amenities, including one from the chef.

It looks like the hotel is already sold out tomorrow night (Carine throwing a leaving party, perhaps?) but rates for Sunday night start at 825 euros.
