W Paris Opéra, Opening Feb 14 2012: preopening discussion (category 7)

If I'm missing a thread with information regarding the W Paris - Opera, I apologize. I'll be in Paris at the end of April 2011. This property is to open April 1st, and I understand that chances are, the opening will be delayed. Any idea if this will be a cat 5 or 6? Thank you.

Most likely Category 6. You probably won't know if it will open on time until Feb 2011 at the earliest.

W Paris - Opéra - Opening July 01, 2011

Just saw that there will be a new W hotel in Paris. Only found it in the new hotel thread but I think that many will miss that. good to see a new hotel in Paris now the Meridién will go.

In the heart of the city of lights, W Paris - Opéra is steps from the landmark Garnier Opéra House. If museums are not risqué enough, haute couture is just a short walk away. Luxury is all along the Rue de la Paix and Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré.
Retreat from the bustle of busy outside into the serenity of our 90 guest rooms and suites. Each of our rooms offers élan and ease in every nuance. Delight in plush pillow-top, signature W beds with 350-thread count sheets, terry robes and the Bliss® sinkside six bath products.

Unless it's delayed before then.

New opening date on the website is now Dec 1, 2011.

How does the location of the forthcoming W compare to that of the other SPG properties? Specifically, in the context of tourism/sightseeing.

The area of L'Opera itself is central and a nice area with boutique shops, Galleries Lafayette and nice restaurants. I stayed there in the Intercon some years ago and loved it. A lot of the major sites are walkable (e.g. Notre Dame, Louvre, Champs Elysees) but not a short stroll by any stretch of the imagination, my advice would be plan a walking route one way then take the Metro back.

I see this is only a 90 room hotel too, given that most Paris properties are high categories would expect a very high rating for this one.

The hotel website now has an opening date of "End of 2011", and notes that the hiring process has still not begun.

While the SPG website states that the hotel is opening on January 1, 2012, is there usually a soft opening prior to that time?

I am going to be in Paris a few days prior to the New Year.

Thanks.

W Paris

Has anyone heard anything about this hotel?

Supposed to be opening in Jan 2012, I'd like to stay in Feb but it's not yet accepting reservations

Any idea on what category it will be and what the rates might look like?

I know this is quite vague...

I would predict it to be at least a cat 5 and probably a cat 6. I would imagine rates would be starting at $300 USD in low season and probably $500 or more during the summer months.

Just a guess.

Also, it was originally announced in Feb 2009. It was expected to open 4 months ago (Feb 2011). Then it was delayed until next month (July 2011). Then it was delayed until next January. In other words, it is a good thing that they haven't started taking reservations. Also, in that first year, especially in that first or second month, expect the 90 rooms to be booked rather quickly.
