If there is a more dedicated hotel owner than Eric Gaucheron, I have yet to meet him. Every detail at this hotel has been scrupulously considered, from the carved cherry wood headboards to the swags of period fabrics on the windows, to the antiques that decorate many rooms. Some have exposed beams, others have marble bathrooms, and those on the second, fifth, and sixth floors have small balconies with nice views of the Latin Quarter. In his eternal quest to keep his clientele happy, Gaucheron has had the walls of the small interior courtyard painted with blue skies and country scenery so that those without a view don’t have to suffer. There’s a family suite with two adjoining rooms.
