Pavillon des Lettres for Lovers of Literature

With 2 books and lots of articles under my belt, I love discovering Paris literary connections. The new literary-themed boutique hotel, Pavillon des Lettres, (a cousin of the Pavillon de la Reine, which I adore) allows you to immerse yourself in the work of a favorite international author.

Twenty-six rooms are named for as many writers, from Hans Christian Anderson to Baudelaire, Shakespeare, Tolstoy and Zola. Decor is modern, with ties to the room’s author, such as wall paper bearing text.

Want to commune with more than one scribe? Read a contemporary novel on your room’s iPad, or cozy up to the library fireplace with a book from the hotel collection.

The bar is the place to discuss story arcs with a friend; or mine the city for character ideas as you stroll the nearby Champs-Elysées.

Mind you, ideas don’t come cheap: doubles from about $375.

Where do you enjoy literary connections in Paris?
