Paris Masters Hotel Picks
Hotel Novotel Paris Centre Bercy – This is 1 of 2 hotels located right next to the AccorHotels Arena, the venue for the Rolex Paris Masters. An upscale but affordable option, this hotel is literally a 1 minute walk away from the tournament. Novotel is also owned by AccorHotels, so there is bound to be a good tennis buzz in the lobby!
Hotel Ibis Styles Paris Bercy – The second hotel option located within a 1 minute walk of the AccorHotels Arena (and owned by AccorHotels) is an Ibis brand hotel. This is a more budget-friendly option, but not exactly a “budget” hotel. It has a modern, clean look, and caters towards a younger crowd. Think “staying in an Ikea”. The rooms are on the smaller side, but it is a great option in a wonderful location.
Le VIP Paris Yacht Hotel – The River Seine is among the most iconic of sites to visit in Paris…so why not stay on it? That’s right, ON it. This hotel is literally a working yacht that cruises the Seine. Perhaps best suited for a romantic getaway, if you want a unique hotel experience in Paris, this is it.
Le Meurice – If you are looking to go all out, this hotel is for you. Opened in 1815 and given “palace distinction” by the French government, this high-end, 5-star member of the Dorchester Collection of hotels is the very definition of the luxurious Parisian experience. This location is in the heart of Paris, flanked by the Tuileries Garden, the Louvre, and Place de la Concorde.
Niepce Paris Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton – For a more familiar option, consider this Hilton property. Set across a row of 19th-century townhouses in Paris’ 14th (district), this hotel is in a quieter location yet provides easy access to the heart of Paris. Despite being part of a big chain, this hotel has a boutique feel, with a French-inspired decor.
AirBnB – There are an infinite amount of places to stay in Paris. There’s every option, ranging from hostels to budget hotels to high end chains, all the way up to literally staying in palaces. However, the best option to really experience Paris and live like a local is to visit airbnb.com and rent out an apartment. Often times it is cheaper than a hotel, puts you in unbeatable locations, and gives you the ability to cook some meals yourself with French fare you may find at the local markets.
AccorHotels Arena has a capacity of 14,000 for tennis (and over 20,000 for concerts), over 3,000 m² of high-quality lounge areas and 54 loges as well as an entrance area stretching over 2,000 m² with permanent access to the city of Paris.
