Keeping to the trusted W formula, brand loyalists will feel right at home at the chain’s first hotel in the French capital. Set in a beautiful 1870s Haussman building overlooking the Opéra, the familiar W vibe kicks in the moment you step into the LED-lit lobby with its model good-looking staff and the thrum of beaty background music.

Interiors are tastefully done by the Rockwell Group architects as usual, and true to custom the 91 rooms range from Cozy boltholes to Spectacular rooms with views and two Extreme WOW Suites. All come with rainforest showers, 40 inch tellies and those comfy signature W beds, as well as the equally signature pay Wi-Fi, and 24-hour access to both the Whatever/Whenever concierge service and the SWEAT fitness centre.

Michelin-starred Spanish super chef Sergi Arola makes his French debut here, running the W Lounge kitchen as well as the more formal Arola restaurant whose pica-pica sharing style of bite-sized morsela is a bit of a novelty for Paris. Tuck into dishes ranging from Spanish nibbles like patatas bravas and jamón ibérico to more geographically correct steak tartare and millefeuille.

It might all feel slightly Manhattan modish and air-kissy ‘we party on revolving beds and swig Dom from the bottle’ rather than Gallic glam, but located right by the iconic Galeries Lafayette department store, close to the luxe Place Vendôme and a short walk to the hip SoPi district, the W Paris Opéra is right in the midst of it all.
