Rated 2 out of 5 by SPG60614 Would not return. Rooms are uncomortable
Front desk staff could not have been nicer and more helpful. The Plat breakfast was great. .
However, rooms are just not comfortable. First, the heating A/C doesn't work well. I could never get the room below 73 F (23 C) even though it was 45 F (7 C) outside. Had to resort to sleeping with the window open. Also, the lighting system is bizarre. The bathroom has extremely bright halogen lights, which is great, but you cannot manually turn them on or off. They are operated by motion sensors, and you will be blinded by them at night. The only way to turn them off is to turn off the master switch, which then plunges the room into total darkness. Just not well thought out. Also, the sink is one long trough with a 7" sliding shelf at one end, so there is virtually no counter space. Also, there is no clock in the bedroom on the nightstand. Finally, there is frosted glass between the shower and sleeping area, so there is no privacy if that is important to you.
Also, the previous guest left the alarm clock set (housekeeping did not turn it off) so I got a nice 5 am wakeup from the alarm clock that was in the sitting area.
I would not return. For the amount of money I spent, I could do much better.

It was the first trip to Paris for my husband and I and from the moment we stepped inside of the W Opera we felt like celebrities .Small gorgeous lobby,the view at Opera house the attention from stuff members !
Everything was spectacular (including the room).
The location of the hotel is amazing:e got everywhere by walking: the Louvre,restaurants,shopping etc.
I would absolutely stay with W again.
It is however a very hip brand directed towards the age group 21-55 in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 500NightsLifetime Just Delightful
Refreshingly different from W's in the US. Rather functional business facilities in the room and quite comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Flupke1070 Perfect stay
Upon check-in, I had the nice surprise to have my Cozy room turned (on an exceptional basis) into an Extreme WOW Suite as a recognition of my SPG Platinum status. The suite was full of surprises and gadgets: large living room, large angle room with no less than five windows, Round ultra-comfortable bed structure, large TV popping-up from the base of the bed.. Large and ultra modern bathroom with separate shower (pitty there was an unpleasant smell coming from the shower)
The in-room breakfast was pricey but delightfull
Overall, a perfect stay in an outstanding surrounding.
Last but not least, the hotel is located accross the Opera house and right next to an Apple Store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LandedSPG A possible new favourite in the making....
I am a very high frequency traveler and generally stay @ any W-Hotel nearby at least once. I've stayed in a lot of them around the world and have a couple of favourites; the ones that I think go above and beyond all expectations, but service and hotel design being my main points of interest. I now might have to add the W-Paris to that list. The only reason I am not 100% giving them a total vote of confidence is because I only stayed one night and I don't generally fully endorse only after one night stay, but I got to tell you, it was great night.
Probably, one of the best designed W's, very very chic! It's not a very tall hotel but that's due to the Paris city limits on building height, outside of that, it's a beautiful hotel with ultra modern style (elevators) combined with bright colours (the red winding staircase). The Living Room was well designed too, although not a stand out, the drink menu was fairly priced plentiful, similar to other W-Living Rooms. I stayed in a Fabulous Suite and I think it was VERY fabulous. The room design was very nice, and the bathroom was right out of the future. The only issue, and maybe unfairly on my behalf, is that the size of the "suite" was very small. Basically, it was room. But generally speaking, all hotel rooms in Paris are smaller than what you would have experienced in the States, so take that for what it's worth. Still, I will say, hands down, one of the best designed rooms I've ever stayed in. Really, top notch!
Now to best part I think was the service, straight from the welcoming reception highlighted by Elizabeth to the room service by Sebastian and my expeditiously assisted departure by Ignatieff (I hope I got the names right)! Also, thanks for the warm wishes about Cannes, so far so good!
MY pre-arrival introduction by Cecile was also done very nicely as per the classic Insider approach by the W-wellcome team!
So, yes, the service was great, the location was great and the hotel was AMAZING. I will be back and I will review in detail when I hit 5-7 stays. For now, rest assured (literally and figuratively) that you won't be disappointed if you give the W-Paris a try!
This hotel meets all category 7 expectations (including price - this is not a cheap hotel) but you leave feeling you got great value for your dollar and remember that you get what you pay for and in this case, I think you get more than what you pay for!
