FIAC 2017: Where to Stay

Traveling to FIAC 2017 (October 19-22), and looking for a place to stay? Whitewaller put together a list of top luxury and boutique hotels to make your search a little easier.

Elegance and mystery combine to accompany subversive architecture, culture, and haute couture. For a luxurious taste of life, one stays at Maison Souquet.
