In October, Paris lives to the rhythm of rugby!

With summer behind us and the festive season just around the corner, you'd think Paris was slowing down. Not at all! A stay in October at the Hôtel Queen Mary, in the heart of the elegant 8th arrondissement, will quickly prove the point. In particular, you'll be able to vibrate to the rhythm of the Rugby World Cup matches...


Ovalie is in Paris

Since September 8, the whole of France has been vibrating to the various group matches of the Rugby World Cup. The Stade de France, located less than half an hour by public transport from the Queen Mary Hotel, hosts the most prestigious matches, such as the magnificent opening match between France and New Zealand. From October 14 onwards, things get really serious with the start of the final phases. At the Stade de France, you'll be able to support the four teams who emerge from Pools A and B - quite simply, the four best XVs in the world: New Zealand, Ireland, South Africa and France.

Party all the way to the final

Throughout the month of October, one match follows another to the delight of fans from all over the world. If you don't have a place to attend, you can enjoy the feverish, friendly atmosphere of the various venues where the matches are broadcast. A quarter of an hour's walk from the hotel, the Place de la Concorde hosts a fan zone and a Rugby Village open to all fans. And in the streets around the Queen Mary Hotel, numerous pubs and bars await you to celebrate this great sporting moment together. 


The 2023 World Cup will be a superb event in the world of rugby. With the French team praised by the foreign press, the All Blacks accelerating after a difficult start and the Irish astonishing the world, all predictions are possible. Don't miss any of the action when you stay at the Queen Mary Hotel!
