The 17th arrondissement of Paris lies slightly off the beaten path, directly north of the Arc de Triomphe. However, if you want to see real Paris at some of its finest and wealthiest, this is where to go. There are no major sights to see, museums to go to, just amazing Haussmannian architecture, real French people, and that atmosphere of the quintessential Paris you've always imagined.

Beyond this the south-western and north-eastern ends of the arrondissement have quite different characters, with the south-western mainly known as a midrange to high-end shopping district named for two major avenues which are lined with shops: ''Wagram-Ternes'', feeling much like an extension of the Champs Élysées.

The north-eastern end, known as ''Batignolles'' is quite different with a grungy bohemian feeling and lots of bars and bistros which are popular with ''BoBos'' (short for ''bohemian-bourgeois'', a social group as fascinating for the observer than the "hipster" population) from the 17th and elsewhere.

The '''Parc Monceau''' is one of Paris's best kept secrets, painted by Monet numerous times. It is a very elegant centre of green in the middle of cosmopolitan Paris. Make sure you check out the statues, entrance rotunda and the surrounding mansions. Thanks to Haussmann himself this precious slice of parkland was reserved for the enjoyment and leisure of the people of Paris. It is unusual in France due to its casual, informal "English" style planning, and is a contrast to other Parisian parks such as the classically laid out and formal Luxemburg Gardens and the Tuileries. Randomly placed throughout the park are scaled-down architectural replicas including an Egyptian pyramid, Dutch windmill, and a Chinese fort.

It's tidy and clean, and the rooms are always fresh when returning from shopping or sight-seeing.
