Tucked into the hipster cours Julien district, this unique hotel is the brainchild of designer Philippe Starck. Rooms are bright and cool, from the modular furnishings to the wall-mounted Macs offering dozens of free on-demand movies. Downstairs, Egyptian graffiti artist Tarek has tagged the industrial-chic restaurant’s ceiling. Super chef Guy Savoy has recently revamped the menu, and the space now hosts a stage set up for live performances. And outdoors, Mama Shelter’s yellow-striped courtyard hosts a pastis bar where guests can sip their way through more than four dozen variants of the city’s beloved anise-flavored tipple. This is an excellent bet for a contemporary taste of France’s second city.
