“Modern hotel in central Paris”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

My boyfriend and I traveled here for a weekend in Nov 2012 for a friend’s 30th. He booked this hotel as a surprise

Great hotel in a good location. The restaurant has a Spanish theme to it and it’s very good but quite expensive. The accommodation was very modern so much so that we couldn’t figure out how to put the lights on! Also we could not figure out how to turn the music off…. In the end it was fairly simple but funny trying to figure it out initially.

Great rooms with comfy beds as well as a good shower room however no bath.
The bar on the ground floor is good too and gets very busy at weekends. If you want somewhere peaceful and quite then this hotel is probably not for you but if you want a fun/party/different hotel then I would choose here.

Overall a very cool, modern hotel and is perfect for a weekend away. If I went back I would not hesitate to stay here again.

The staff here is incredible. Bar none, they were the most helpful of any hotel I have ever stayed. I recently visited for a birthday celebration and wanted tips on how to make the stay memorable. I was able to connect with Cecile (their insider concierge) and her team provided great restaurant recommendations (and reservations) plus off-the-beaten-path sites to check out. While the rooms faced a busy street (great Opera location tho), I couldn't hear a single car pass by at night (they must have great insulation)! Also, there wasn't the typical "thump thump" DJ sounds from the bar in the middle of the night, as with most W's I’ve stayed at in the past. I will definitely stay here again. Simply an amazing experience and wonderful place to stay.

Pros: The STAFF!, location, sleek style

Cons: may not be suited for families (the shower only had a glass wall separating it from the room), the restaurant wasn't the best (but it’s Paris!)

Room Tip: Ask to face the Opera.

The hotel is in an excellent location. It's easily walkable to almost all major points of interest. The staff is very good. They even remembered my birthday and brought a treat to my room when I returned for the day. Very nice touch. I would highly recommend and come back again.

I highly recommend the W for anyone who is looking for a very hip, well-situated hotel in Paris. All of the employees spoke excellent English, and were very helpful. Our concierge, Cecile, was a delight! She was friendly and personable and had excellent restaurant recommendations. Our room was on the small side, but, hey, it's Paris, and large hotel rooms are hard to come by. It's a typical W Hotel in that the bathroom is a little strange, but the bed was comfortable and the hotel bar was very comfortable and chic.

The hotel is right next to the Paris Opera house, so it's a short walk to the Louvre and the chi-chi shopping district along the Rue Saint-Honore. It is also conveniently located on a major Metro stop, so it's easy to travel to other parts of the city.

My only complaint is price, but expensive hotel rooms are to be expected in Paris...

The hotel was great. The rooms were small yet clean. All of the staff was outstanding but the concierge staff was exceptional. I started emailing the concierge staff months before I arrived and they were extremely helpful with planning my trip. They helped with suggestions on things to do as well as making reservations, getting tickets etc. Everytime we went anywhere, they wrote down the address for us so we would have it. Staying at this hotel was not only a wonderful experience but I would recommend it to everyone.

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights in a "spectacular room" on the 4th floor. Great view of the opera! We were allround happy with the service, the room was very comfortable, although a bit small and very modern. Concierge service did a good job making restaurant bookings. Breakfast was good, but somewhat pricey. Probably normal for Paris.
I totally recommend the hotel. You can't get anywhere more central. It is just the perfect location for a city trip!

Not as "clubby" as other W Hotels we've stayed at (which is a good thing). Rooms were clean and modern. We didn't have a view, but that didin't really matter since we were out and about all day. Staff was very helpful with booking anything we asked, as well as directions and answering any questions. Location was great as it is pretty much walkable to most sites.
