Most people I know would recoil at the idea that over $1,000/night is "budget friendly"
Don´t forget were you are. There may nothing be wrong with Louvre or Regina but it may also not be on one level with the high end luxury hotels. This said you nevertheless may have a nice stay but again, don´t forget were you are. If you want real luxury and 50 sqm+ 1000 $ (or even €) are relatively budget friendly if you compare it with other hotels. .

I think it might be worth looking into the Intercontinental.

My parents stayed some years ago and said it was totally tired. If they didn´t major renovations I´m not sure if it is a good option. If I´m Right it´s not even a regular 5 star hotel today, it only holds 4 stars.

They do have a complimentary night promotion on at the moment, using this could balance the price out to be more within your budget?

Saint James Albany Paris Hôtel Spa

While not super luxurious, we had a lovely duplex room (upstairs bedroom and bath, downstairs sitting room and half bath) last summer at Saint James Albany Paris Hôtel Spa. It’s right there on Rue de Rivoli and really was delightful. No where near as expensive as 1K euro/night.

We spent our hotel $$ savings on amazing meals at Arpège and 114 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré (In The Bristol Hotel). Enjoy!!

Curious I looked up the hotel as we are planning a trip to Paris and the price range is in our realm. The reviews are terrible.... especially of late.

I suppose my question is how do the Hotel du Louvre or the Regina fall short of a luxury hotel? From the pictures, the rooms appear within the range of this forum (although certainly not the higher end of this forum). Service and other aspects are obviously harder to figure out from pictures.

I agree with your last sentence for high end Paris hotels. See the smiley at the end of my post.

I'm planning for a post-September stay, but that would certainly help with pricing. Perhaps they'll run it again later.

Nothing like planning way in advance :-)
