Currently at the W right now and got upgraded to a fabulous suite. I'm biased here by def W.

Weston Vendome. Pretend you're staying at the Ritz.

Thanks everyone. I was leaning towards the W due to the more modern rooms. Seems the votes are a split. Tough call

W is best. Better location too. I stayed there.

I had to cringe when I saw a W and an Apple Store by the Opera.

Tough call, the Westin has slightly nicer rooms, but they are the stingiest upgraders... I had an instance where their inventory was wide open and they lied to me telling me that they were fully booked. Long story short, after a call from SPG they upgraded me late in the evening. Both have are very well located. Pretty hard to beat the Eiffel Tower view at the Westin (if you get the right room)

How do sick days work? Just realized that 1/3 of my “PTO” is actually sick days (and it’s not generous and you don’t get paid out when you leave). I’m very lucky to not get sick but does that mean in order to use some I’ll have to spontaneously say I’m ill with little advanced notice? Seems like a policy which rewards people for leaving their team in a lurch.
