If you didn’t realize the French origins of this hotel before you walked in, you will when you’re greeted by the desk staff with “bonjour!” The glass, 32-floor, prism-like structure is by all definitions a large property, with 415 rooms. But each floor is limited to 16 rooms, which makes it feel boutique-like. Guest rooms are filled with natural light and are more daring than most with color choices, including bright red carpeting and chairs. The crowd here is primarily made up of business and international travelers, although families will stay here too. As a French property, there’s a heavy emphasis on the food program, and the award-winning Café des Architectes is the onsite restaurant. If you stay here, order an extra croissant for me, please.
