Staycity Paris La Défense also has on-site parking, a guest laundry, gym and 24-hour reception as well as a Staycafé selling breakfasts, hot and cold snacks and drinks throughout the day.
The international business area of La Defénse lies in the North-West of Paris known for having 30 million square feet of offices spread across 71 towers. It’s also a sought-after residential area with 25,000 inhabitants, praised for its high quality of life, cosmopolitan appeal and modern living spaces. La Défense boasts the largest pedestrian space in Europe – featuring in a number of films and photoshoots as well as being the location for concerts, cultural exhibitions and street entertainment.
The area is fast becoming a popular destination for leisure visitors as well as corporate guests with its extensive choice of bars and restaurants, impressive skyline and accessibility, being served by three international airports and just a short Metro journey from the centre of Paris.

France is a key destination for Staycity and La Défense joins our existing Parisian properties in Gare de L’est and Marne la Vallée and outside the capital in Bordeaux, Marseille and Lyon. Next year we will open at Charles de Gaulle Airport giving our guests a fantastic choice of Staycity destinations across France,” commented Staycity’s director of brand, product & marketing Jason Delany.
