Hotel Costes Hotel Review: This hip hotel, with its Second Empire-inspired interiors, is long on style and absent the attitude. Here, near the Place Vendôme, intimacy and opulence prevail in design touches that include plush velvets, mood lighting and a color palette of deep reds. Artistically decorated rooms are both comfortable and blessedly quiet. You’ll find serenity in the gorgeous enclosed courtyard, where meals are served in fine weather. You can also enjoy a relaxing interlude at the fitness center and pool on the basement level. But it’s the house bar, Restaurant Bar Branché, that’s definitely the place to see and be seen.
