W Hotels opens the W Paris - Opera

W Hotel LogoW Hotels International has opened the W Paris - Opera, called that due to its close proximity to the famous Paris Opera House, the OpĂ©ra Garnier.  It is also right around the corner from one of my personal favorite shopping spots in Paris, the Galeries Lafayette.

But don't pick a hotel in Paris based just on two cool nearby destinations, most important is how far your hotel is from a Paris Metro station.  And the new W Paris - Opera has several stations nearby, one of which is the Opera station which connects three major Metro subway lines and one RATP train.

Visit the W Paris - Opera Website.  For and excellent private tour of the Opera House or any other part of the city contact Paris Angels.  Check out my video from 30 Days In Paris; Day 27, Paris Opera House.  Below is the famous dome inside the Galeries Lafayett.
