12. Hotel Le Notre Dame

Location: Paris

Designer: Christian Lacroix

Price: from $174 per night

Designer Christian Lacroix pushed his redesign of the centuries-old hotel with views of the storied cathedral right to the edge, fusing modern twists with baroque and psychedelic designs, at times verging into the Rococo. Though he was responsible for a complete overhaul of the hotel, the rooms themselves are particularly florid, regal, and bursting with color.
