W Hotels has announced plans to open their very first Paris property by 2011. It will be close to Place Vendome, in the Opera area of the city.
W Paris-Opera will feature 90 stylish guest rooms, a world-class contemporary restaurant and destination bar, a state-of-the-art fitness facility with spa treatment rooms, and W Hotels’ signature lounge experience where guests are invited to mix, mingle and relax in a chic social atmosphere.
The hotel will be inside a “quintessentially Parisian” 1870s Haussmann-era building, close to the Galleries Lafayette.
Guest rooms and suites, including W Hotels’ renowned WOW suites and Extreme WOW suites, will all feature custom-made furnishings, sophisticated accents unique to Paris, the W Hotels signature bed with feather-top mattress, 350 thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets and goose down comforter, creating the ultimate urban escape.
This is W’s first foray into the France hotel scene, but Starwood’s been there for a while: the hotel giant has six properties in France under the Sheraton, Le Meridien, Westin and The Luxury Collection flags.
