Expert Review

This charming, 19-room, family-run hotel takes its name from the irreverent 18th-century musician, politician, and revolutionary Pierre-Augustin Caron de Beaumarchais, who penned his famous monarchy-bashing play "The Marriage of Figaro" just up the street. The chandeliered lobby, with its 1792 Erard pianoforte, antique card table, and harp, looks as it might have when the fearless Beaumarchais – a one-time smuggler of arms to American minutemen – was dashing about this street. The rooms upstairs feature exposed-beam ceilings and toile curtains, and are petit enough that you can reach most things – mini bar, closet, window – from the bed. But with free Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs, who really needs a lot of surface space? Those seeking uninterrupted sleep should ask for a back-facing room since the front-facing rooms overlook a busy thoroughfare in the hip Marais district and may be a bit noisy in the evening.
