The Louvre is one of the main attractions of Paris and I was looking for a hotel near it for easy access.
In the end, Westin Paris - Vendome right along the Tuileries Gardens was the choice and was incidentally featured in Scarlett Johansson's Lucy.
The entrance to the hotel is rather grand and I was thinking if the hotel actually deserves a 5-star rating.
The hotel even has its own Wikipedia page which states "It was designed by Charles Garnier's son-in-law Henri Blondel and was intended to be the most luxurious hotel in Paris at the time."
