To get to the W hotel, take the RoissyBus (pay bus driver in euros) from Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG). You are approximately 2 blocks from the W, as you wind around the Opera house (this is one of 2 opera houses in Paris) to arrive at the W. The savings, when compared to a taxi ride to the W, will help put you in a good mood when you arrive at the air conditioned (important in hot July) hotel.
Not too bad!, Ines! .The French can be understated in their praise, saying something like "not too bad". But Americans may be more direct: "Thanks for a job well done, Ines, during the check-in". My wife and I had made an initial reservation, but had to add an extra day, adding one day to the original reservation. Ms. Ines (first name) discussed the 2 reservations with her manager and arranged for us to stay in the same room during the entire stay. During our stay, I returned to the front desk numerous times. The young team members (W Paris Opera has been open less than 2 years ) helped each other achieve an excellent level of service. For example, when I asked about the Internet service, Isabeau (her first name) answered my questions, supported by Thomas.
The personal creativity of the staff will help the hotel achieve their service motto.
Note that the free maps (I had 7 from various sources) have various levels of detail: some do not show every street. This is important, for example, when you take the Metro subway to the 11th arr. to an authentic French bistro, Bistrot Paul Bert: Check with the hotel staff. Check with the assistants at the Opera Metro stop. Take line 8 (purple line on the transit map) going toward Point du Lac, and get off at the Faidherbe Chaligny stop. Walk west on St. Antoine to the intersection of rue Paul Bert. Go north to Bistrot Paul Bert, which opens at noon for lunch. This bistro served a delicious lunch, gave a tremendous value, and is a place for international foodies and locals.
