Get pampered, get cultured, get comfy, get a bite.

Treatment Time: The Hotel InterContinental Paris Le Grand recently renovated its 3,055-square-foot spa, which includes five treatment rooms, plus a sauna, gym and steam room. Called the I-Spa by Algotherm, it specializes in treatments featuring the brand's marine-based cosmetics. The 55-minute AlgoIntense Facial, for instance, is tailored to individual skin care needs and includes a peel-off mask. It's priced at 100 euros, or about $134 at current exchange.

Other treatments include a 40-minute head, neck and foot massage for 80 euros ($107); the 50-minute Light Legs Drainage treatment for 110 euros ($147), and the 85-minute Supreme Gold Massage for the face and body, for 160 euros ($214). Waxing and manicures are also available.

Meanwhile, the Hotel Saint James & Albany's 5,555-square-foot After the Rain spa fully opened this fall. Along with treatment rooms—including four for individuals and one for two people—it has an almost-50-foot pool and a hammam. After the Rain's spa menu is vast, including a 30-minute eye treatment for 65 euros ($87); a 60-minute purifying back treatment for 130 euros ($174), and a 90-minute "botanical garden" facial for 210 euros ($281).

One afternoon each month After the Rain hosts children. For tots, a 30-minute hand treatment followed by a nail polish application is 40 euros ($53), while a 45-minute "pearl and silk" facial is 98 euros ($131).
