This 13-room hotel, centrally located on the Right Bank in a converted garment factory, was opened two years ago by Frey's cousin, who asked friends and family to each design a room. (Frey's "Black & White" room is covered in floor-to-ceiling Pierre Frey fabric, of course). You'll often find him at the hotel's restaurant. "I love the atmosphere," says Frey. "The food is delicious and there's always a fun, eclectic crowd."
