Hotel de JoBo

Just steps from Place de Vosges in Paris’s bohemian Le Marais district, boutique Hotel de JoBo is decorated as an homage to the late Josephine Bonaparte (who, the owner posits, would have been known today as ‘JoBo’). Each of the 24 rooms is decked out in traditional French motifs: black and white toile de Jouy, leopard print, florals and, of course, black swans. A small basement meeting room would make this a great spot for a company retreat, or the venue of a special celebration.
