French Open Accommodations
The Roland-Garros Stadium, home of the French Open, is in western Paris in an area not known for its selection of hotels. Fortunately the site is easily accessible from anywhere in the city via the No. 9 (Pont de Sevres-Mairie de Montreuil) and No. 10 (Boulogne Pont de Saint-Cloud-Gare d'Austerlitz) metro lines, so spectators can conveniently stay anywhere near a subway stop or RER commuter rail station. If, on the other hand, you prefer to bed down close to the action, consider the following nearby properties.

Bear in mind that hotels convenient to Roland-Garros may be booked solid up to a year in advance of the French Open. If you're having trouble finding a room, consult the "Other Places to Stay" section of the Paris Convention and Visitors Bureau web site for listings of agencies that handle bed-and-breakfast bookings and short-term rentals. These agencies may be able to secure lodging for you in a private home in the vicinity of the stadium, as many area residents rent out rooms or entire furnished apartments during the event.

Other Lodging for Tennis Fans
Tennis fans will love to lay their heads at the site where the game of jeu de paume - ancestor to tennis - was played in the 17th-century or in a countryside chateau that is mentioned in "The Da Vinci Code" and has its own courts.  

  The Hotel du Jeu de Paume 
The Hotel du Jeu de Paume, smack in the middle of Paris on the Ile St.-Louis, occupies the site of a 17th-century sports club where French aristocrats once played an indoor court game called jeu de paume, considered the precursor of modern tennis. The 28 rooms, two suites and two apartments at this atmospheric old property get mixed reviews from guests, but you couldn't ask for a better location, surrounded by the Seine and the city's top tourist attractions. Double rates average around 250 € to 300 € per night.

 Chateau de Villette 
If you want to stay in a hotel with its own tennis court, you’ll have to seek accommodations in the more open spaces of the surrounding countryside. One particularly luxurious choice is the Chateau de Villette, a meticulously restored 17th-cenutry chateau that plays a cameo role in Dan Brown's best-selling mystery novel "The Da Vinci Code". The property also serves as a backdrop for scenes from the recent film adaptation of the novel, starring Tom Hanks and Audrey Tautou. The 185-acre estate about half an hour northwest of Paris has been converted into an elegant country hotel and conference center with 17 guest rooms and a nice new tennis court. The entire property may be rented for family gatherings or business meetings, or you can participate in a Da Vinci Code tour, culinary retreat or other special program that includes accommodations at the chateau.
