Visit the Roland Garros from the Chess Hotel Paris
The sporting and social event of the Parisian spring, the Roland Garros, is a unique, not to be missed experience. A stay at the Chess Hotel Paris in the heart of the Opera district, and close to the city’s famous department stores, is your chance to enjoy it.
An exciting sporting challenge
Above all, the Roland Garros is one of the four Grand Slam tournaments. That means that it’s one of the most prestigious tournaments in the sporting calendar and features the world’s top names in tennis. Each year, the event is a battle of champions. However, what sets Roland Garros apart as a brand is its ability to develop a delicate balance between proven champions like Rafael Nadal, the undisputed king of the clay and nine-times winner in the last decade, and those stunning surprises that nobody expected. Who can forget the unexpected victories of Yannick Noah in 1983, Michael Chang in 1989 or Andre Agassi in 1999? But the undeniable charm of Roland Garros also lies in its understated elegance and refinement, from the costumes of the ball boys to the Roland Garros boaters that are adopted by the public on hot days.
Just Roland Garros
Reside in the Chess Hotel Paris and you can enjoy this thrilling tournament with ease. The Roland Garros stadium is located just outside central Paris on the edge of the Bois de Boulogne. It is served by the Metro (Line 9) and the station is conveniently located just a few steps from the Chess Hotel Paris. This means that you can organise days at the tournament without any complications. You can easily be back in time for dinner near the hotel and then go on to enjoy a walk around the illuminated city or a show in one of the capital’s many theatres. Of course, the Chess Hotel team is always happy to advise you on how best to organise your outings during the Roland Garros!
