The hotel is set in an 1870s Haussman-era heritage building and designed jointly by W Global Brand Design and Rockwell Group Europe.

the 91-room W Paris Opéra, situated across the street from the Opéra Garnier, will feature two meeting rooms, the largest of which is 21sqm.

The hotel design will feature an oversized backlit digital undulating wall on the central core of the building and weaving through the public and private spaces.

"Taking the W brand into Paris, a global fashion capital, if not the global fashion capital, will mark a true milestone in W’s global expansion into the world’s most exciting and vibrant destinations," said Eva Ziegler, global brand leader, W Hotels Worldwide and Le Méridien. "Through the opening of W Paris Opéra, fashionistas and global jetsetters can now be on the runway with W from New York to London and Paris."

Historic features of the 19th-century building include ornamented columns, vaulted ceilings, marble staircases and fireplaces.
