A "Salon Room"
In 2009, burlesque performer and all-around awesome celeb Dita Von Teese tweeted a Paris hotel recommendation to her followers. At that time, she named the art deco Hotel Lutetia, but in 2012, her loyalties lie elsewhere.
Earlier today, Dita answered the hotel recommendation question again for a fan:
The Hotel Raphael is now not only Dita-approved, but moved to the top of our list after only a few minutes' time spent browsing their website. Those rooms! That furniture! The terrace in the Arc de Triomphe suite! Le sigh.
Glamor like this won't come cheaply, however; rooms start at 315 Euro per night, or 465 Euro if you want the lowest level of suite. That said, these rooms would make the perfect setting for a honeymoon, photo shoot, bachelorette night...etc. Thanks again, Dita!

Although we don’t like to admit it, we often go by celeb guests when we’re deciding where to stay. So when we decided to take an empowered single lady trip to Paris, we took a leaf out of uber-empowered single Dita Von Teese, by going for the Left Bank Hotel Lutetia, where she’s apparently staying at the moment.
We didn’t catch Dita, or anyone else of note, but the bar is the place of choice for a host of French celebs – Carla Bruni used to be a regular before she became Mrs. Sarko, and Gerard Depardieu pops in most days. We can imagine that – it’s a gorgeous art deco hall with a couple of bronze statues propping up the lights, and panes of coloured glass on the ceiling.
Dita is back! In Paris, we mean, as she is set to return to the famed Crazy Horse cabaret for a series of scintillating performances in February. The first guest star to perform at the Crazy Horse, Dita von Teese holds legend status in both the performance and fashion worlds, and looks to equally legendary hotels when she travels. Her Paris choice is reputedly always the Hotel Lutetia, the first art deco hotel to be built in Paris and a favorite of another cabaret icon, Josephine Baker.
