W Paris - Opera

New York

Traveling to Paris shouldn't mean leaving behind the comforts of NY, but it also shouldn't require visiting Paris, NY, not when Utica is soooo close! Thankfully, NY's W Hotels just christened a boutique spot (W Paris Opera) in the real City of Lights, converting a Haussmann-era relic into 91 chandeliered rooms sporting space-age touches from light-speckled ceilings resembling futuristic switchboards, to internet connectivity that floats through the air like black magic.
