The W brand is given an especially Parisian twist in this gorgeous hotel, located in a converted 1870s Haussmann building. The W Paris’ 91 rooms and suites are decked out in a blend of modern and classic decor, with muted colouring, antique fireplaces, and crown moulding paired with contemporary furnishings (like the W’s signature circular bed) and works of modern art. White marble bathrooms and floor to ceiling vanity mirrors add to this blend of old-and-new charm, making the W an immersive experience in Parisian luxury. Despite the suites’ tranquillity, there are options for getting loud here, too: the hotel lounge keeps revellers dancing to DJ-helmed tunes until the wee hours, and the high-tech gym lets you work out with a view over central Paris. Shopaholics, beware: Les Galeries Lafayette and Le Printemps are both just a short stroll away from the hotel’s central location. Maybe best to avoid the temptation and head over to the Louvre instead.
