19. Hotel Le Bristol

Paris, France

Business Facilities Score: 92.9

On the rue du Faubourg St-Honoré, near the Élysée Palace and the city's nexus of designer shopping, this "epitome of luxury hotels" was built in the early 1800s and today delivers "pure perfection on every level." The Haussmannian-style building provides "the most welcoming atmosphere," outfitted in antique furniture, Gobelins and Lille tapestries, and Old Master paintings. Chintz and silk curtains, crystal chandeliers, Persian carpets, fabrics by Frey, Rubelli, and Nobilis, and bathrooms of white Carrara marble set the tone in the accommodations. One of three restaurants, 114 Faubourg's "delicious French cuisine" is served in a classic Parisian brasserie setting. "The service here is impeccable, with very helpful people—from the concierge to the restaurant staff."
