When you walk in the door, chances are you will be greeted by none other than Monsieur Eber himself, who has spent the last decade lovingly renovating his hotel. Eber has opted for a 1930s-era decor that is low-key and specifically Parisian. Walls in the spacious rooms are papered in subtle period patterns in neutral colors, lit by authentic Art Deco hanging fixtures picked up at antiques fairs. Old-fashioned radiators have been scraped and lacquered; prints dating from the Universal Exposition of 1889 (which unveiled the Eiffel Tower—another decor theme) hang on the walls. Rooms in this hotel are unusually large for Paris; the triples and connecting suites are ideal for families. Breakfast is served ‘til noon—a godsend on a lazy day.
