Reviewed 5 July 2014

I'm reasonably loyal to Starwood given the perks, and I was in Paris recently during a hectic summer week with few other hotel choices available. While I find many W hotels a bit too self-consciously hip for my taste, I can't complain about my stay. Au contraire -- the W Paris Opera was a delight in a every way, and the location is superb. It's the W brand at its perfection.

If you are traveling with a family, be prepared for the uniqueness of a W. It is a great location next to a metro stop stop, Opera House and Apple store. The staff is friendly to Americans that don't speak French. We enjoyed the food in the restaurant, having traditional French breakfast to start the day.

My first time in Paris with husband and son. Had such a good time. The W opera hotel is very well located. Near subway station, la gard du nord, le printers et les galleries Lafayette's and l'Opera of course.
Staff is very polite, talk very good english. Rooms are modern and spacious wich is very rare when you travel in Europe. Would definitely book this hotel again.

Searching for a no fuss central Paris hotel we came across the W Paris Opera. We reserved for the third week in June and prepared for a great trip. Upon arrival we found that the hotel, located on rue Meyerbeer, sits directly across from the Opera House. The location is very central and highly accessible to the metro and numerous bus lines but still removed from the high traffic of the nearby boulevards. We were a comfortable walk to the Place de la Concorde and the Tuileries, and only 15 minutes by bus to Montmartre.

We were warmly welcomed by friendly and competent staff who made us feel at home instantly. The hotel itself offers high-end contemporary design and comfortable and efficient lounge and lobby spaces. Our room was very well appointed with great light; drawer and closet spaces were fairly tight but functional.

The W's big drawback is its food. The restaurant and room service menus were very limited and very expensive; morning coffee might run you as much as 9€ and room service was pricey and poorly done. At the restaurant a huge signature hamburger should be avoided and room service after-hours produced an inedible club sandwich, sans frites.

The hotel staff is wonderful, great concierge service; Bruno and Marco looked after our comings and goings offering fantastic suggestions with efficiency and humor. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will return at the earliest possible time.

Room Tip: We suggest you choose a room with an Opera House view.

We recently stayed here in June 2014 to kick off a 2-week European vacay... Being from the States, your first worry with European hotels is that they're very small however that couldnt be further from what we received at The W Opera in Paris...

First off, the staff was superb weeks before our arrival and helped us book restaurant reservations at some of the best hotspots in town. They took care of our every need being 4 Americans who spoke very little french and even better, we got upgraded at check in! The room was amazing with a view of the Opera house and steps from a metro. The restaurant/bar was fantastic and the breakfast buffet was perfect each day... Another cool note was that we could walk just 15-20 min to get to the Tuileries Gardens/Louvre area. My only other things to note are that its not for those on a budget and if you're looking to be by the eiffel tower or St Germain or Montmatre areas of town, you're a metro or cab ride away...

Being a group a two young couples, I highly recommend this property if you're looking for a bit of old world French flare in a ultra modern brand new hotel and we would absolutely stay here again !

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the Opera on or above the 3 floor!

The location is hard to beat and we stayed in a room with the view of the Opera so that was pretty spectacular. What really made our trip was the extremely helpful concierge staff who were kind and gave us wonderful tips to some great recs on sights to see and top-notch restaurants to dine at. The rooms were what you would expect at a W, albeit one must expect that European rooms will be "cozier" in terms of space. That's not out of the norm. Wonderful stay, will return soon.

Nice clean modern hotel is a great location to visit the sites of Paris! However, rooms are small and "cosy". Minimalist feel to rooms and hotel which is nice and modern. However I Feel like for the price of the room it not great value to be honest. The best feature is the location!

Especially considering the first night we where there the music from the downstairs bar woke us up at 2am! The hotel needs to pick whether it wants to be a hotel or and hotel with a nightclub...! It is trying to be both at present and is not working!

Spanish restaurant in hotel: less than impressed - several dishes came out cold and I had to send back - and went the brought these back where still cold! Massively over priced and definitely not Michelin starred dining. I would not dine here again especially for over 150 euros!
